Red lipstick is the beauty equivalent of a LBD: It's a foolproof way to look glamorous with minimal effort.

And these daring stars (Emily Blunt, Kourtney Kardashian and Leona Lewis) are giving the statement-making color an even bolder upgrade by sporting vibrant shades with a mirror-like glossy instead of a standard matte one.

To pull off a shiny red lip, pair it with light gold or champagne eye shadow during the day and black liner at night. Keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum so your lips get all the attention.
