There's Plenty Of Bold Lipstick Inspiration In This Week's Best And Worst Beauty (PHOTOS)

If your idea of bold lipstick is anything in a tube that's bright red, then you should check out the the stars in this week's best and worst beauty.

Miranda Kerr turned heads in her go-to red-orange lip color and "I Wish" songstress Cher Lloyd was right on trend with a bordeaux wine pout. However, Ashanti missed the mark by not properly blending her bubblegum pink lipstick with her lip liner.

Scroll down for this week's best and worst beauty looks below and tell us which bold lipstick you like best.

BEST: Miranda Kerr

Kerr reminds us of a cherub here with soft, side-swept curls and wispy lashes. But she amps up her angelic look with a red-orange lip color that makes her blue eyes pop.

BEST: Cher Lloyd

The English singer is sporting some amazing hat hair. Her loose waves fall beautifully underneath her fedora, and her matte burgundy lipstick couldn't be more perfectly matched.

BEST: Allison Williams

Ladies who are attending black tie functions this season should take serious beauty notes from Williams. To balance out the high neckline of her gown, the "Girls" actress pulled her locks into a sleek, yet simple, ponytail. And the fleck of gold eyeshadow and peach lip gloss warm up her pale skin.

BEST: Lupita Nyong'o

The "12 Years a Slave" star has been making the red carpet rounds flaunting her flawless complexion. (Can you tell us your skincare secrets, Lupita?) Graphic violet eye makeup and lavender lip color are risky choices, but she nailed the combo.

BEST: Rumer Willis

This was a complete shock to our system. Willis looks stunning with in deep, '40s-inspired waves, brown smokey eyes and bright red lips.

WORST: Lisa Marie Presley

We didn't even recognize Presley without her shoulder-grazing hair. While this high bun is different, it does absolutely nothing for the singer-songwriter, and that pale pink lipstick washes out her complexion.

WORST: Mindy Kaling

Mindy, Mindy, Mindy. You are such a beautiful woman, but you are wearing the wrong shade and formula of foundation. It makes your skin look muddy. Plus, your wine lip gloss is unbecoming.

WORST: Ms. New York Stephanie Jill Charnick

The beauty queen's caked-on makeup is giving us scary clown vibes. Between the harsh bronzer-blush, neon orange lipstick and charcoal eyeshadow, Charnick would have been better off going au naturel.

WORST: Ashanti

Oh, baby! Ashanti recently celebrated her 33rd birthday in Las Vegas, but that is no excuse for those poorly applied fake eyelashes and pink lip liner.

WORST: Eliza Doolittle

The British pop star should have put a bit more effort into her hair and makeup before hitting the red carpet. She looks unkempt with that messy updo and brown lip shade.
