Captivating kissers

Undeniably sexy, unapologetically fearless and fabulously feminine, red-slicked lips have enchanted since ancient times. Egyptian beauties crushed gems (and beetles) for luscious lips, and Japan’s geisha delicately brushed red pigment extracted from safflowers to create a rosebud shape. Centuries later, this classic cosmetic continues to evolve.

The latest twist of the lipstick tube comes from perfumers, who have upped the olfactory ante. While flavors and scents have long been included in formulations of this beauty basic, the new versions come from luxury fragrance companies making their first foray into the world of maquillage.

The company has released a collection of nine shades (named after New York neighborhoods, like its collection of colognes, candles and creams). Each color, with hydrating ingredients such as camelina and murumuru oils, comes in a refillable gold case. $105, bondno9.com
