Can you believe that fall is right around the corner? We’re already pumped for comfy sweaters and warm beveragess, and our lipsticks will be getting a major makeover, too. It’s time to say goodbye to the bright shades we’ve been rocking all summer and hello to darker hues for the fall. Presenting: the best fall lip colors to try in 2021 (and one hue that’s best left in the past).
Neutral tones are always in for fall. Think: Nude shades that match closely to your complexion. These colors can range from pinks to browns and they brighten up your face for everyday occasions—whether you’re headed to brunch or FaceTiming with mom.
1. DIOR ROUGE DIOR FOREVER LIQUID TRANSFER-PROOF LIPSTICK
You don’t have to worry about smudges or stains when it comes to this $38 find. The liquid formula is long-lasting (with up to 12 hours of wear) and transfer-proof, so you can rock the shade all day. It comes in ten shades, but “100 Forever Nude” is what we’re into this fall.
2. GUCCI ROUGE DE BEAUTÉ BRILLANT GLOW & CARE SHINE LIPSTICK
“Call It A Day” is the neutral shade of the season. Color aside, the creamy lipstick also delivers a host of skincare benefits with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil.
3. CHARLOTTE TILBURY HYALURONIC HAPPIKISS LIPSTICK BALM
This hybrid combines the creamy texture and pigmentation of a lipstick with the hydration of a lip balm.
4. RARE BEAUTY BY SELENA GOMEZ LIP SOUFFLE MATTE CREAM LIPSTICK
If you’re looking for vegan options, this matte-cream lipstick is the way to go.”Fearless” is our go-to pick for daily wear because the color is subtle, yet striking. Once applied, it feels lightweight, soft and hydrating on the lips.
5. ARMANI BEAUTY LIP POWER LONG LASTING SATIN LIPSTICK
With “long lasting” in the name, you can expect to keep your color on for hours. The formula is also infused with protective oils to keep your pout hydrated throughout the day.
6. BUXOM FULL FORCE ’90S NUDES PLUMPING LIPSTICK
With a name like “Supermodel,” it’s enough to make us want to add it to our bags. The subtle shade lets you unleash your inner Cindy Crawford with a lip plumping formula and rosy satin finish.
Plum, berry, burgundy and mauve are just a few popular shades within the purple family. Rest assured, there are ways to rock the color without looking like you dove headfirst into a dessert pie.
7. HUDA BEAUTY MATTE CREAM LIQUID LIPSTICK
This liquid lipstick is ready to make a statement. It glides on smoothly, while leaving behind a satin finish. “Bawse,” which is a rich burgundy shade, is berry much (sorry, we had to) a fan favorite for its bold pigmentation.
8. ESTÉE LAUDER PURE COLOR ENVY HI-LUSTRE LIGHT SCULPTING LIPSTICK
For a rich purple hue, reach for “Plum Bite.” The curved tip gives you a precise application (so you never have to worry about getting color outside the lines).
9. LIME CRIME VELVETINES MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK
Inspired by the founder’s love of roses, this liquid lipstick packs a punch in color. The “Beet It” shade brings out the vibrancy of purple that’s festive for any fall shindig.
10. CHANTECAILLE LIP VEIL LIPSTICK
Featuring a combo of fairwild and baobab oil, this hydrating lipstick is worth the splurge. “Elderberry” is a rich purple hue that works for special occasions.
11. RMS BEAUTY WILD WITH DESIRE LIPSTICK
If you’re searching for a clean beauty pick, look no further than this “Jezebel” shade. It has a rich berry color with a ton of hydrating benefits.
12. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS LIQUID LIPSTICK
While some matte formulas dry out your lips, this one stays smooth and comfortable for up to 8 hours. Plus, the applicator makes the lipstick glide on like butter.
Fact: You can never go wrong with a red lip. The vibrant shade is a classic and fits well with the season. We love a nice rosy red or a burgundy hue depending on the occasion. Regardless of how bright or deep you go, you’re sure to make a statement every time you wear it.
