You may have already experimented with crazy colors on your nails, but would you try those same shades on your lips? Several lipstick brands are hoping you'll say yes. If you're ready to take the plunge, here are four tubes to get you started. (Side note: it appears that the lipstick namers have as much fun in their jobs as the nail polish namers.) 1. Lime Crime No She Didn't Opaque Blue Lipstick: $16. Opaque lipsticks take the shade from WTF to a mere OMG.

2. Ka'Oir Cosmetics Lipstick in 14K: $14.99. For a party or glam night out, go for the gold (makeup).

3.
Inglot Lipstick 201: $12. If Effie Trinket can do purple, then so can you.

4. Urban Decay Lipstick in Oil Slick: $22. If you go black, you'll never come back. Or maybe you will, but you can still have fun in the meantime.
