Ever spot another woman on the street with "The. Perfect. Lipstick." and wonder what shade she’s wearing? Wonder no more. We asked! From city chic to suburban and country cool, these are the shades that caught our eyes. Pucker up!

Melissa Szwec, Student

What she’s wearing: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in Are You Red-Dy Who hasn’t dreamed of rocking a red lip? Melissa pairs this burst of cherry with lots of lashes for a look that’s equal parts sassy and sexy.

Dana Oliver, Beauty Editor

What she’s wearing: Chanel Rouge CoCo in Cambon #31  Oh, do we love us some glamour! This pink-meets-red pop of pout lends a sense of ladylike polish to Dana’s bright lip. Go neutral with the rest of your makeup (and clothes!) for max drama.

Maggie Flaishans, Publicist

What she’s wearing: Lancôme Color Design Lipcolor in Pale Lip Maggie’s cool Grace Kelley blonde vibe is accented with a pillowy soft nude lip. A touch of blush and a stroke of smoldering eyeliner smoke things up High Society-style.

Charu Suri, Travel Journalist

What she’s wearing: L’Oréal Never Fail Lipcolor Compact in Apricot Glow on, girl! This terracotta hue enhances the golden undertone of Charu’s Indian skin. Bonus: the subtle touch of color transitions seamlessly from day to night.

Amy Abramite, Hair Stylist & Creative Director

What she’s wearing: Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Love Test #11 The best complement to a fresh, bold haircut? Confidence, plus a slash of fuchsia lipstick (which Amy paired with soft pink cheeks and a stroke of liquid liner).

Cindy Levitt-Amador, New Mom

What she’s wearing: Mary Kay Crème Lipstick in Pink Shimmer Looking good while on the go is a cinch for Cindy, who simply slicks on this universally flattering pink for a pretty pout that’s nothing less than classic.
