This duo is our favorite for creating the perfect red lip.

Verso Lip Serum plumps lips on contact by super-hydrating them. Dermatologist Dr. Noëlle Sherber added this to our edit of lip treatments because "this silky balm plumps with hyaluronic acid without relying on irritants as many other formulas do. Retinyl retinoate, a modern formulation of retinol, also stimulates collagen to build density and plush volume in the lips over time, so you get both instant and longterm results."

TOM FORD Lip Color has become an iconic formulation because its specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color, and it is ultra-creamy due to a moisturizing mix of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and Chamomilla flower oil. Our makeup artist in residence, Enrique Valentino, calls Cherry Lush "the perfect festive, and smile-brightening, shade." It is our go-to for the perfect red lip for the holidays.
