gorgeous fall leaves set the tone for your lip palette. Behold: fall’s
prettiest lip colors drawn as leaves, and taken for a test drive by Cosmo‘s Editor, Carly Cardellino.
is really glossy, so it won’t leave your lips feeling dry, even after
wearing it for a few hours. This shade looks very vampy on, which is
very in right now, making it the perfect fall lipstick.
If you want to wear a subtle red shade
this fall, this is the one to swipe on. It’s got a mostly matte finish,
but since it’s so moisturizing, it gives off a subtle luminous look and
lasts for hours. Bonus: reds like this make your teeth look instantly
3. Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Very Violet and Enduring Sable, $8 each, avon.com.
I took the shimmery copper shade, Enduring Sable, for a spin, because
it’s a color I wouldn’t normally wear. Turns out it looks great on and
makes a perfect fall alternative to nude lipstick. It also contains shea
butter, omega-3 oil, arctic berry, and vitamin E, so there’s no way
your lips can be remotely dry this season with it on.
4. SPLURGE! Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Farouche and Impulsive, $34 each, chanel.com.
I’m all about a brick-colored lipstick, but for this go-round I
changed it up and swiped on the peachy-pink Impulsive shade. And I loved
it — the color is universally flattering, so it suits all skin tones.
The formula is really hydrating and leaves behind a satin finish that
isn’t too matte or too glossy.
5. PERFECT STOCKING STUFFER! Nars 413 BLKR Lipstick, $26, narscosmetics.com.
If you’re looking to baby step into the dark, vampy lip trend, this
lipstick’s your ticket. You can go for a more sheer look with one coat,
like I did above, or build on it for a more intense look.
6. Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Back to Fuchsia, $7, drugstore.com.
A statement-making, hot pink color like this one is totally
acceptable for fall. And I’m going to be wearing it all season long. I
dare you to do the same — no matter your coloring, it’ll look awesome.
7. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb, a rich red, $22, urbandecay.com.
If you want intense pigment that glides on easily and stays creamy,
not dry-looking, for hours, then this lipstick is your best bet. It also
has nourishing jojoba oil, avocado oil, and cocoa butter to keep your
lips moisturized as the temperature outside drops. I LOVED this bold red
— it’s going to be my winter beauty staple for sure.
