Watch: Was Travis Kelce's "1989" Outfit A Nod to Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift's got that red lip, classic thing that we like.

While cheering on her rumored flame Travis Kelce during the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears on Sept. 24, the Grammy winner matched her look to Travis' crimson-colored uniform. 

Of course, that meant Taylor sported her signature red lip, which outlasted everything from the tight end's touchdown to an afterparty. And while the pair's latest display of affection for each other is taking the internet by storm, so is the singer's apparently transfer-proof lipstick—which looked flawless during her meal of chicken tenders and seemingly ranch.

But in true Taylor fashion, she has yet to share details of the exact product she used for the NFL game. E! News also reached out to her longtime makeup artist Lorrie Turk for confirmation but she is keeping her lips sealed.

Luckily, the "Lover" singer's penchant for red lipstick goes way back and she's discussed her go-to shades in the past. As previously noted by Teen Vogue, the 33-year-old once told People she "discovered Ruby Woo by MAC, which I think everyone knows is a staple. I was the last person to discover it."

Taylor has also professed her love other reds, telling MTV in 2014 she was a fan of two Nars products.

"I have a lot of go-tos as far as red lipstick," she said at the time, "but one that really can't go wrong is Dragon Girl. And also, I heard on the radio that Hilary Duff wore Luxembourg by Nars, so I bought Luxembourg by Nars. It's really good too."

More recently, Taylor has worn Pat McGrath's LiquiLUST Legendary Wear Lipstick in the shade Elson 4.

In fact, the Midnights artist donned the femme fatale hue in her "Bejeweled" music video, which released last October. At the time, Pat shared insight into Taylor's enchanting lip shade for the music video.

"When I think of Taylor, I always think of a perfect red lip," Pat exclusively told E! News. "When we first did the Met Gala in 2010, we did a bold, confident, empowered look centered on red matte lipstick. For 'Bejeweled' and her VMAs appearance, I couldn't imagine not doing something with red lipstick."

For the music video, the makeup artist used four lipsticks to create an ombré effect on the singer's pout. In addition to using the matte liquid lipstick mentioned above, Pat added the PermaGel Ultra Glide Lip Pencils in Deep Dive, Blood Lust and Deep Void to achieve the fierce look.

And while Taylor may be keeping a tight lip on the exact lipstick she wore to the Chiefs game, it's clear it's one of her MVPs.
