French beauty brand By Terry (don't worry, it has nothing to do with Terry Richardson) created a custom red lipstick in honor of the Helmut Newton photography exhibit in Paris. Although the exhibit will be closing soon, the Funky Ruby lipstick shade was so popular that the brand is going to continue selling it indefinitely. And you don't even have to go to Paris to get the stuff—it's available on By Terry's website and on Yeah, at $49 the shade is a bit pricey, but it's still way cheaper than flying to Europe.

Need more Lang-inspired makeup in your life? By Terry isn't the only beauty company who was inspired by the late photographer. British brand Coco Beau has a shade of their Weightless Lip Crème called Masochist, aka Helmut Newton Red.
