For some, pumpkin spice- everything is the true sign of fall. For beauty lovers, dark, vampy lips signal the start of the autumn season. Sure, you can wear a dark lip any time of the year, but a sexy, berry-colored pout seems so much more appropriate for the cooler temperatures and shorter days of fall. If you haven’t tried the trend or you’re ready to retire your signature Bordeaux lipstick for something new, keep reading to see some of the most gorgeous lipsticks you can wear this season to dress up your lips.
1 Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Midnight
We’re starting things off with a bang with this spicy little number! Black lipstick is considered one of fall’s hottest lip colors and it’s actually surprisingly wearable. Obviously, if you work in a conservative office, you might want to steer clear. But, if you check out some Google images of this product, you’ll see that black lipstick looks good on a lot of different people. Make Up For Ever also came out with a black lipstick that you can use to create gorgeous ombre lips. Do you dare to rock black lipstick this fall? Available at macys.com for $20
2 Nyx Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
NYX’s Copenhagen might be more your speed if you’re looking for a deep, rich wine color. This lip cream is the perfect balance between a lipstick and gloss so you end up with a silky, soft matte finish. This long-wearing lip color works wonderfully on light, medium, and darker skin tones so ladies of a variety of skin tones can rock a berry pout and really accentuate their lips! It’s bold enough for night but also chic for the day-to-day wear. Available at ulta.com for $5.99
3 Chanel ROUGE COCO SHINE HYDRATING SHEER LIPSHINE in Aura
At first glance, this lip color might look a little intimidating but once it’s applied on the lips, it goes on much sheerer that you’d expect. This glossy lip color aptly called a lipshine leaves just enough pigment and shine to wear to school or work so you can still wear the dark lip trend without coming off a little too vampy and you end up looking unapproachable. Available at chanel.com for $37
4 MAYBELLINE Lip Studio Color Blur in Plum, Please
Rose is another hot color for fall that’s universally flattering. This lip color in Plum, Please is like a rose color with an edge. It’s not as dark as the rest of the lipsticks featured here but it’s on-trend and perfectly pretty for fall. The beauty of the color blur is that it features the staying power of a lip pencil with a smudger so you can go for super pigmented lips or create a softer look with just one tool! Available at ulta.com for $8.99
5 Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry
Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipsticks are adored by beauty lovers for the low price, amazing color payoff and the creamy texture. If you’re new to darker lipsticks, think of it as sort of a statement lipstick where it takes center stage. Black Cherry is a pretty, pigmented lipstick that you can wear as your signature lip color or on special occasions. Available at target.com for $4.99
6 BeautyCounter Lip Gloss in Fig
Paint your lips a pretty plum color with BeautyCounter’s Fig lip gloss. This non-sticky lip gloss hydrates lips with jojoba and leaves lips smooth and soft. If you’re not already familiar with the brand, BeautyCounter is really picky about what they use in their products and hand picks their ingredients so you can feel good about using their products. Available at beautycounter.com for $29
7 Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Hex
If you’re not a fan of berry or plum, wine red lips are another great option for fall. This is a little bit darker and deeper than traditional red lips but what else would we expect from Urban Decay? Although this shade is part of the matte collection, it has a slightly glossy finish. The standout feature of this lipstick is that you get tons of color in just one swipe and it’s extra creamy and comfy on the lips. Available at sephora.com for $17
