This Red Lipstick Is an Instant Makeover in a Tube

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked National associate editor Kenzie Bryant.

Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Dragon, $25 at Sephora

August is my makeover month, probably because ohmergerd-the-first-day-of-school-is-impending feeling has been etched into my internal clock. But rather than dyeing my hair or chopping my hair off or doing anything really with my hair, I'm swiping on some bright lipstick a few days a week. The closest to perfection in terms of hydration, staying power, and color fullness is Shiseido (I like Dragon because it's classic and bright). Instant transformation. Summer reset complete.
