Christina and her Red Lips

Christina performed on a German TV show recently with her trademark red lipstick. As we know, she can't seem to go anywhere without that red look. She explained her obsession in the January issue of Glamour magazine. When Christina was asked if she would feel exposed without her make-up she answered,

Yeah - there's a witch under this hair [she says laughing]. Would I feel exposed? Yes, in a certain way. The red lips are - I don't want to call them "armor," but they're the clothes of my character, and I'm in the business of entertainment....I don't see makeup as a defense. I see it as a creative outlet. I am a woman who has my extreme vulnerable side and my baggage - and at times I feel extremely weak. And who's to say a little mascara doesn't make you feel more confident when you pop it on and look in the mirror? It helps, especially in my position, where I have people waiting down the street to take pictures of me so they can evaluate and criticize every little flaw on my face. I suppose that's where the armor would come into the picture.

We have to admit we used to give Christina a hard time for always wearing those red lips. Maybe it's because we don't think she needs the extreme color to hide behind. That said, thank you Christina for finally giving us the answer to one of life's great mysteries! For more pics of Christina and her ruby lips just

I like her hairstyle very much! I really love hair from old times and she is perfect way for us to see styles from past with little mix from today! Gorgeous! Kudos to her! :-)

I don't really care what she does with her lips, but she needs to stop with the bad "Gwen" hair before it gets out of hand.

Actually i think the red lipstick looks good on her. not too many gals can pull that look off.......

I love red lipstick, so I can't fault her there! She seems a lot more humble nowadays. There was a time when she was an arrogant little thing, but now she seems more grounded.

It doesn't seem like she is hiding behind her "armor" at all. When you go out in public with lips that look like they belong to a clown, don't you think that would attract more attention? ______________________________________________________ ~Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.~

She's really good, but I've gotten tired of the red lips... She would so look good without them! ______________________________________ \Don't chase the beat of your heart/

Who cares about her lips. It's what's coming out that matters and she can sing. Always liked her music.

She is way too orange - like lots of girls nowadays... For some reason I'm not digging this look, it's just not classy/sexy/funny/or whatever - it just seems cheap. And hello to everybody - I'm new here :)

I like how she is coming across glamorous, and classy. I detested that "Dirty" phase, or whatever it was called.

I am not tired of those red lips at all.i think she looks great and that's her trade mark. she seems to pull off the old Hollywood glamour.. back in the day when she was going through her dirty fase :p i really thought that between her and Britney she was the one that was gonna go down hill but she turned things around and managed to get a classy look, it works for her and with her great voice i think she's great :)

Is she channeling Gwen's bangs? :P She does seem to be one of the artists that really "gets" that she's playing a role. She plays it well and she's very successful. I like the comeback of hose. 8) The more dressed up the better.

I think her makeup looks good and very glamorous as long as she doesn't pile on the pancake makeup. I'm not feeling this comeback of hose, however. They just look old-ladyish.

Christina is great, and she's right, a little make-up can make you feel better.
