The Best Lipstick Colors For Fall

Fall is the perfect season to change out your lipstick colors for something a little bit more unique and bold.

And if you’re anything like me, you already stray away from the trends of nude or pink lips, which is great – because those colors aren’t as pretty in the fall – well I don’t think so anyways (I could never get on the nude trend).

This season is full of deep and dark colors that will compliment the chill in the air – the changing in the leaves, and all the wonderful moody colors in fall outfits.

I’ve rounded up some of the BEST lipstick colors for fall that are worth every penny below. Enjoy!




*to shop, just click on the actual lipstick you want to check out from the photo above!


#1 – Rita from NARS is the ultimate red lipstick for fall. This one is my go to shade for all my outfits. This is my first recommendation & I swear by it!

#2 – The ONLY nude I really love for fall is this one! It has a beautiful red undertone that looks natural if you don’t want to go too bold.

#3 – NYX’s whole line is on point. This butter lipstick is smooth, velvety, and buildable.

#4 – This creamy lip paint is probably my favorite of them all. Tarte has an amazing “swipe and go” formula in all their lipsticks – perfect for carrying around in your purse on a fall walk.

#5 – Deep purple is great for fall and this lipstick has a gel like consistency to it that feels amazing and looks great.

#6 – This plum shade has an incredibly lustrous buildup that can add shine but remain bold in a way that isn’t too overwhelming.

    I really need to start branching out with my lip color. It’s either shimmer balm or red and no in between! Definitely gonna change that up. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. I’m really like 1,2,5 & 6! Those plum colors are really gorgeous, I think I’d have to swatch to see if my skin tone matches okay. But number 2, is like my top favorite.

      I would definitely swatch to see if you like them! If you have any blue undertones, then all the purple/plum colors will work very well. If you are someone with pink/yellow undertones, than a nice burgundy or wine is good too.

  10. Love that shade from NARS! I recently bought a lipstick from NYX and have been impressed with it; I need to check out their fall colors.

      The NARS shade is definitely a winner. I love the NYX line too – the colors go on very smooth and they stay put. I find with most “cheap” lipsticks, they don’t last very long. NYX is the exception.

  11. I have been looking for new lip colors! #6 looks like my favorite so far. I usually only wear red but I am determined to wear other deep colors this fall πŸ™‚

      You should definitely try a nice plum then. Or if you really really love red, I would try a deep wine – that way it’s not too different but different enough.
