Will Priyanka Chopra please stand up? 

The Internet has spoken, and the actress' Emmys look deserves your attention. More often than not, red-carpet beauty feels repetitive: a shimmery eye here, a vampy lip there, so on and so forth. By the time the red carpet ends, we've all but forgotten what we've just seen.

That is, until, on the rare occasion, we spot a stand-alone beauty moment that really sticks with us. This year, that look is Priyanka's red lip. Was it Nars? Was it Mac's Ruby Woo? It seemed like every beauty editor wanted to know.  

What's this elusive shade, you ask? Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Rouge Charnel ($37), painted on by celeb makeup artist Yumi Mori.

Firstly, her deep rouge lip shade couldn't have matched her Jason Wu gown better, landing her on many an Emmys best dressed list. Even though it wasn't a cheesy, in-your-face cherry-hued red (that would have been too abrasive with the dress), it still surprisingly popped without being too harsh or bright. Aside from the muted color, the texture, too, was exactly what we're looking for in a staple shade: matte but hydrating—so it felt versatile enough for a variety of occasions, ranging from weekend brunch to after-work happy hour. The shine was subtle—but only slightly and from certain angles; it felt low-key yet still ultra-luxurious. In other words, feel free to swipe this color on when you want to feel special.

If it hasn't been made clear already, Priyanka is notorious for getting it right in the lip-shade department, so, really, who better to introduce you to your new go-to red?

Excuse us while we stock up.
