    Timeless, classic, sexy...the red lip never goes out of style. Trouble is, for such a straightforward color, there are a lot of variations out there. Should you go for a brick red or cherry? Will orange-red be flattering on you, or will it make you look like a demented clown? In the face of so many questions, and even more choices — what's a crimson-obsessed girl to do?

Now, study up before you pucker up, ladies. .
