Yes, the first obvious use is applying it to your lips, but as Steph shows, you can also use it as a cheek stain. (You may want to go with a more peachy tone depending on your complexion.)

The next magic use? Color correction. Apply the same red lipstick under eyes to magically erase dark circles. The red or peachy tones cancel out the grayness. Start by applying a few dots, and blend in with your ring finger. Once it's been thoroughly blended, apply your concealer as usual. (More on this here: How to Use Red Lipstick As Concealer)
