My coffee cups are constantly covered in lipstick. My employees? Not as much. While I love sporting bright, vampy, red, and pink shades year-round, I know I’m in the minority who feel naked without lip color. However, fall is the only time of year when everyone comes to my side. Our office is filling up with dark browns, our favorite nude colors for our skin tones, burgundy, holiday red, orange and more — and let me tell you, I live for it every time.

Now that PSL-drinking-leaf-jumping-sweater-wearing-pumpkin-picking season is officially upon us (OMG, FINALLY RIGHT?!?!), we’re ready to grab our favorite lip colors once more. We’ve reached out from our makeup collections to try new shades (you can never go wrong with a little makeup swap between friends!) and revisited old favorites. Below you can see what they looked like, what we think of them, and where to shop for similar fall colors. Happy Swatching!

Highly pigmented lip gloss in ‘Bond’

I fell in love with these lip glosses a few months ago and am so lucky to have one in a deeper shade. Since it’s on the dark side, I would usually put a lip liner underneath to give it even more staying power and keep it in place. It has so much pigment for a gloss and lasts quite a long time – I wore it for about five or six hours before I felt the need to reapply it. It also wears off so gracefully; it doesn’t pull all the moisture out of your lips and definitely doesn’t settle in lines. love love love

MAC

Lipstick in “Among the Fireflies”

Ever since I was a child, I’ve always been kind of afraid of lipstick. While all the other girls I knew were leaning over their mothers’ dressers and admiring them as they put on their blush, my 5-year-old self would freak out at how one could possibly remove all that color to go back to its natural look ( covered has been my strength since my youth). BUT as I’ve grown up a bit, I’ve realized that darker shades aren’t the only way to add a bit of pop to your face to make it more vibrant. I’d still say I’m working on getting more comfortable applying lipsticks that deviate from my natural tone, which is why I feel like this shade is a perfect everyday color for fall! It’s subtle enough to wear during the day, yet pigmented enough to build up to wear at night. Its formula is creamy and moisturizing with a good shine, and while it may fade a bit over the course of several hours, moisture still stays locked in. I can definitely see myself reaching for this color all season long!

Maybelline

SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color in Seductress

When I applied this lip color, Beth and I laughed because it was almost identical to the color of my lips – which doesn’t look like it in the tube. BUT this is a perfect, your-lips-but-better color for fall. I’m not a super tall lipstick girl but this one was super comfortable and lasted all day. When I saw my mom later that day while she was wearing this, the first thing she asked me was what lipstick I was wearing. 10/10 from me.

Mented cosmetics

Foxy Brown semi-matte lipstick

My new favorite lip for fall is actually one that’s pretty subtle, but I love it because it’s my perfect nude; what used to be hard to find. It’s called Foxy Brown by Mented. I also love this lip color because it’s matte but moisturizing and stays in place even after coffee. Not to mention that I can apply it on the go without a mirror without worrying about it drying unevenly. Since nudity sometimes flattens my skin tone, I like to apply a blush (I use Lip Bar’s Fresh Glow in Bubble Bath) to my cheeks to keep me looking alive. Another pro tip for women with darker skin who, like me, can have dark lips and chin is to apply a little concealer around the mouth to even out that area. It’s a small step that makes a big difference for me.

Flower Beauty

Petal Pout Lip Color in Wild Berry

It’s very rare that you see me with a lip color – if ever, I like a casual pink gloss that matches my skin almost perfectly (can you say daredevil?). I’ve always thought that a bold, deep lip was PAINFULLY chic in the colder months—but I’ve also always feared that I just ~don’t have the face for it~. Office makeup guru Beth helped me pick this shade – and while you might not see me on a casual Tuesday, I think it’s a perfect way to spice up my cocktail attire for the upcoming holiday season.

Kylie Cosmetics

Liquid Velvet Lipstick in Savage

I’m obsessed with everything Kylie Cosmetics has to offer, especially their velvety liquid lipstick formula. I usually just wear a pink nude color (her bare shade is my go-to) but I love this darker orange nude for fall! It’s super long lasting and comfortable and doesn’t dry out like some of the matte formulas can be.

NARS

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

I have yet to find a lipstick that stays on my mouth all day, but these sticks come very close. I generally prefer a stick to a traditional lipstick – sticks are drier so get me a few hours longer (no melting in sight). The version of NARS Velvet Matte is my favorite – it really looks like velvet after application and has super rich pigment so you get really bold lips and not just a hint of color. The pigment fades throughout the day but in a gentle way, so you end up with a sexy stain after a few hours. I’m heavily influenced by product names and this color is called Cruella so of course I bought it unseen from Sephora’s website and boy did I not disappoint. 11/10 would recommend.
