lip colors

Show your lips some seasonal love this fall with our picks for some of the best glosses, stains and lipsticks in our favorite fall-ready hues.

Get glossy

Glosses are great for those days when you just want to leave makeup to a minimum, but still brighten up your complexion and feel a little brighter overall. Whether you’re out on a date, at the office or meeting friends for lunch, touching up with a simple swipe is a great way to freshen up. Check out our top picks for fall:

Fall's best lip colors

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in Ruby Red ($23), a bright red perfect for the season. Not to mention, red never really goes out of style.

Fall's best lip colors

Lorac Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick in Sheer Luxe ($22), a rich, brandy-wine hue. We love this one for its long-lasting shine.

Fall's best lip colors

Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Black Honey ($15), a fall-ready shade of blackberry.

Lipstick love

One of the best ways to freshen up your makeup look is to add a new lipstick to your beauty arsenal every season. Since fall is here, we suggest treating yourself to a brand new hue that reflects the cooler weather. We rounded up some of the colors we’re currently crushing on:

Fall's best lip colors

Joe Fresh Shine Lipstick in Wine ($6), a shade that just seems to scream fall. Plus, the price point can’t be beat.

Fall's best lip colors

Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Amsterdam ($32), a pretty garnet red. We especially love how smooth this ultra-rich color goes on.

Fall's best lip colors

Sephora Collection Color Lip Last in All You Need Is Red ($12), a vibrant coral-red sure to brighten up any outfit this fall.

Super stains

Stains are one of our go-to makeup bag must-haves because they’re long-lasting and buildable in terms of coverage. They also provide color that never feels sticky or too heavy like some glosses and lipsticks can. This fall, go for shades with hints of wine, berry and rich reds. Just try not to swoon when you see which stains we’re swiping on this fall:

Fall's best lip colors

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Spirited ($24), a seasonally stylish orange-red hue.

Fall's best lip colors

Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Flamenco ($19), a luscious cherry red. Bonus: You can use this stuff on your cheeks, too.

Fall's best lip colors

Laura Mercier Lip Stain in Mocha ($20), a warm, chocolate-tinged pinky-brown.
