We love a good red lipstick, and we dig a great murder mystery, so telling us there's a combination of the two is like catnip. That's right, there's a new femme fatale lip shade on the market, inspired by a suspense thriller with plenty of socialite drama and intrigue, and we're all about it. Ladies, Votre Vu French Kiss Limited-Edition Lipstick in Social Death is sinfully good.

The novel that inspired this vitamin E-packed, lip-loving tube of goodness by Tatiana Boncompagni (self-published, 2014) is a savvy page-turner centered around the murder of a Manhattan socialite. It has plenty of society intrigue and even more suspense. Basically, we've covered your beauty needs and the kickoff to your spring break/summer reading list in one shot.
For those who tend to multitask while commuting, why not apply this scarlet hue while you read said novel? Because, for some reason, the Hottest of The Hot always seem to be checking us out while we're otherwise occupied, so you might as well be prepared. Bonus tip: It's packed with natural vanilla mint, so your breath is in check in case a hottie stops by to investigate your situation.
