Nothing spices up a lunar new year #selfie better than a red lipstick. Not only will it effortlessly match your outfit (which is probably red, too), it'll also make you twice as photo-ready than any other lip color out there. And in case you're on the lookout for a new tube, here are eight lucky picks to swipe on before the fireworks start:
