There is no better time to break out a red lip than New Year's Eve, when sequins and shine reign supreme -- whether you're at a black tie affair or laying low at a friend's pad. And though the THR.com style team's 2014 ball drop agenda varies from seeing John Legend in Vegas to hitting a hillside house party in sunny SoCal, one thing is certain across the board: bold red lips for all.
Below, the THR.com style crew shares their favorite red shades perfect for puckering up once the clock strikes 12 -- and anytime before or after.

"I'm a fair-skinned redhead, so Burberry's Brick Red No. 19 Lip Cover ($30) -- which is an almost natural earthy red -- is my obsession. During the day, I layer it over Burt's Bees Lip Balm ($3.29) so it goes on sheer. But for New Year's Eve, I'll swipe it sans balm so it's dark and bold."

"I don't really wear red lipstick. But YSL's Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge 1 ($34) is the only red I own. It just makes me feel pretty."

"Chanel's Rouge Coco in Gabrielle ($34) is practically season-less, spicing up my daytime and nighttime outfits all year long. I'm definitely ringing in 2014 with the same hue that came through in 2013."
