Pucker Up: The Best Lipstick Shades for Fall


Long gone are summertime tinted lip balms and barely-there glosses. This fall season, we return to classic hues and rich, full-bodied lipsticks. From timeless nude to pretty dark plum, we’ve rounded up the four best lipstick shades for fall.

By Kara Manos of Politics of Pretty

Tomato Red—For a polished look, this iconic hue works for day or night. Our picks:
NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Jungle Red ($26)
Ilia Lipstick in Wild Child ($24)
Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Love Red ($9.99)

Nude—This is a default lip color that will never go out of style. We suggest opting for a fusion of flesh and tan lip shades that will enhance your natural lips. Our picks:
Tom Ford in Blush Nude ($49)
Lipstick Queen in Bare Nude ($22)
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Be Free ($18)

Plum—Craving a dark lip? Plum lipsticks work for those with fair or dark complexions, not to mention they are perfect for nights out on the town. Our picks:
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Persistent Plum ($4.49)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry ($7.99)
Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Mulberry ($24)

Orange—For a more youthful and playful look, a bright orange lip will spice up the season. To get the most wear out of your off-the-runway trend, shop for hues that have more red and less yellow undertones. Our Picks:
Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Orange ($25)
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Electric Orange ($7.49)
Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in Satin Bright Orange ($20)
