We thought we'd never see the day when our tubes of red lipstick would start to collect dust on the bathroom sink. Instead of wearing MAC Ruby Woo or Stila Fiery every day this winter, a few celebs have inspired us to switch things up with punchy shades of pink. (Aveda Winterberry Lip Glaze is among our current faves.)

This week, Taylor Swift matched the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show pink carpet perfectly with her matte pink lips, and Anika Noni Rose sported a fuchsia lip shade that complemented her brightly-colored graphic print dress.

See these celebrity pink lipstick looks below (plus more standout hair and makeup) and tell us what you think. Will you think pink this winter?

BEST: Taylor Swift

Swift stole the spotlight from the VS Angels with her bangin' hairdo. The lash-grazing fringe, smokey eye makeup and pink lips are a fresh change from her usual sophisticated updo and red lips.

BEST: Anika Noni Rose

Well, hello gorgeous! Rose's vibrant lip color makes her complexion look even more luminous, and her full-body curls are just as lustrous.

BEST: Christie Brinkley

Now that we know the supermodel's anti-aging secret (hint: it's in the hair), it totally makes sense why she chooses to keep her makeup simple with subtle eyeshadow, mascara and pink lip gloss.

BEST: Jennifer Lawrence

This is one of the best red carpet beauty looks the "Hunger Games" actress has worn since debuting her new pixie haircut. With her short strands pulled back, we see how a bit of contouring and lipstick can brighten up her face.

BEST: Alexa Chung

Chung wins for the best drawn-on winged eyeliner we've seen in decades. The delicate flick frames her green eyes and goes well with her effortless updo and pinky beige lips.

WORST: Lena Dunham

It's bad enough that Dunham failed miserably in the style department at the 2013 Glamour Women of the Year Awards, but her girly hair and eggplant eyeshadow tanked the look. Bummer, since we love the "Girls" star.

WORST: Melanie Brown

Between the former Spice Girl's frazzled curls, muddy eye makeup and clumpy mascara, we're wondering if she just rolled out of bed and onto the red carpet.

WORST: Suki Waterhouse

God knows we love bold brows, but Waterhouse's eyebrows are a bit extreme with her slicked-back hair.

WORST: Bérénice Marlohe

All we see is red, and it's making our eyes hurt. The French actress' attempt at red eye makeup got lost in translation with the heavy black eyeliner.

WORST: Adrienne Bailon

There is absolutely no reason that Bailon's complexion should be so orange. The pint-sized star's natural beauty is buried underneath all that self-tanner, bronzer and peach eyeliner.
