Since hitting the red carpet in support of ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ Zoe Saldana has constantly painted her lips in bold, bright hues of red. In a behind-the-scenes video she was recently caught saying, “An item I cannot live without and that I’m always with is a red lipstick. I think every woman should find her right shade of red — An ideal red. Red is a very alive colour, it’s fire and it’s filled with passion, it helps you. It helps your spirit, it’s very present.”
Spotted on Zoe on May 14 (pictured far left) was Laura Mercier’s Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Hollywood. The shade is certainly bold and bright and Laura Mercier’s site describes it as just simply “red” — I guess no other descriptor is needed. Then, on May 20 she stepped out in Cannes for the premiere of ‘Blood Ties’ (pictured far right) in what appears to be that same shade of Hollywood red. But during a photocall for the same movie, on the same day in Cannes, (pictured center) she seems to have opted for a more pink hue — possibly Laura Mercier’s Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Palm Beach. No matter the color, it’s clear that Zoe truly does prefer bold lipsticks.
