Pucker Up On the Red Eye

Virgin Airlines gets ruby red

Eight hours after takeoff from Heathrow Airport, you land at JFK.  Hurrying through the international terminal, you stumble into the restroom and wince at the reflection in the mirror.  Blood-shot eyes, dull skin, scaly lips - in other words, you're not giving good face. What would Sam Fine do? A dramatic red lip, that's what. And your saving grace is just steps away.

Virgin Atlantic Airways and mineral makeup expert bareMinerals have created Upper Class Red, a lipstick that lasts the duration of overseas flights and softens chapped lips with hydrating elements. Now available at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse Spa at JFK, Heathrow, and Gatwick. (Or, score a tube through Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight shopping guide.)

Red lips. Red bottoms. Red hot.
