Makeup Files: Colored Lippies

Lately my makeup regimen has been pretty blah.  My  routine for the past few months kinda sounds something like this: a quick dab of concealer, a few strokes of  mascara  and  if I'm not running late a quick lip gloss application. I know, I know, I know that sounds so basic and boring.  With the new year here I think it's time for a makeup makeover. I 'd thought it would be a great idea to begin my makeover journey by embracing color.  On a recent trip to Sephora I tried on two bold lipsticks by Makeup Forever,  Rouge Artist Intense #15 and  Rouge Artist Natural #N31.  To my surprise I liked both lipsticks but it was the purple goodness of Rouge Artist Intense #5 that stole my heart.  I tested the waters of Rouge Artist Intense #15 for the first time on New Years Eve and it was a hit.  The color was rich and didn't require a thousand reapplications.  Even my bartender complimented me on my new bold lippie.  Yes people this lipstick has been bartender approved.  

What are some of your favorite colored lipsticks?
