Because it's almost that time of the year.

One of the much-awaited celebrity events of the year is about to make its return for 2017, which means that all the Star Magic Ball throwbacks are obviously in order. But before we zoom in on the dreamiest ensembles of the past, we're giving the limelight to a beauty look that never fails to wow us on the red carpet: dark lips. Keep scrolling for our favorite bold pout moments from the past seven years!

2010 - Anne Curtis

It has been seven years since Anne Curtis attended the ball, which means it has also been seven years since she turned up in this feathered Michael Cinco number. Although back then, Anne made a statement not with her signature red lip but with a deep berry hue instead. 

2011 - Iya Villania

Iya Villania was a showstopper in this '20s-inspired look back in 2012. She was the ultimate swinging siren with her immaculate finger-waved locks, kohl-rimmed eyes, and era-accurate dark brows. Her plum lips tied the entire look together, because why stop the pizzazz with a nude lip?

2012 - Kim Chiu and Nikki Gil

Kim was every bit of an Old Hollywood siren in her Edwin Tan mermaid dress four years ago. Breaking her all-white ensemble by painting her lips berry was an impeccable choice that made an otherwise princess-y entrance more era-inspired.

Yet another Old Hollywood throwback wins a place for 2012, because how can we ignore Nikki Gil's matching lipstick and clutch?  The bombshells of the '30s will be proud.

2013 - Shaina Magdayao

White was perhaps too plain a color for Shaina Magdayao, so she glammed herself up with a hint of cleavage and a dark pout. Dewy skin wasn't even a big trend back then, but the actress' complexion was ultimately beaming under all the lights. 

2014 - Kim Jones and Bea Alonzo

The newlywed Kim planned her SMB look last minute, but alas, her Jun Escario gown still landed her on many best-dressed lists. We appreciated this look more because of her makeup, which by the way, she did all by herself.

Bea went the extra mile and wore two looks back in 2014. The first was this updated take on Louise Brooks' famous blunt bob and signature lip dark lip, which the actress translated into a full-fringed chin-length chop. The second look, on the other hand, (click here to see it!) channeled Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby.

2015 - Ellen Adarna

Rocking the red carpet in this Joey Samson suit was the best choice for the rebellious Ellen. We can also say the same thing about her beauty look that mixed strong brows and lips with a dreamy loose ponytail.

2016 - KZ Tandingan and Maja Salvador

We all know that KZ Tandingan is a fantastic singer, but she didn't need to sing a single note to wow us last year. She wore a black glitter lip inspired by that season's Versace runway look by Pat McGrath. We can't wait to see what beauty surprise she has for us next.

The Chanel-clad Maja was our timeless beauty pick of the night. Her classic glamour waves had us deeply enamored, not to mention her matte, wine-colored lips that we still need to find a dupe for.
