If you're a little bored with your classic ruby red lipstick or looking for a surprising dash of color this winter, then look no further. We've found a striking hue that is sure to stand out this season in a crowd of merlot lips. The color is called Sepia (lip gloss, $16; by Anastasia Beverly Hills, and we put the liquid lipstick version of the shade to the test. Unlike most matte products that leave your pucker feeling dehydrated, this elixir glides on smoothly and delivers intense pigment with one swipe.

The color is a beautiful combination of stone and cinnamon accented with mauve undertones. Plus, the eye-catching neutral works with every single complexion as it defines the lips adding subtle color. From the fairest tones to deepest skin, this shade will instantly add a dose of flair to any look. Scroll down to see how InStyle staffers wear the look.
