There aren’t many things we don’t rotate at the top of the season – our wardrobes, candle scents, skincare routines, and makeup is no exception. Just as important to the quintessential fall aesthetic as cable knit sweaters and booties, the best fall lipsticks, in the end, play a huge part in pulling it all together.
We enjoyed a few months of clear gloss and soft shimmery for summer, but during the fall seasons is when makeup reaches its peak potential as a vehicle for self-expression (as the options are endless), and it’s the various fall lipstick shades, from cool ‘90s browns to deep blood reds and vampy plums. These days, there are plenty of options to consider beyond lipstick color as well — satin and matte finishes, liquid lip or lip stain, high shine, or low luster — and each of them lends a different quality.
Narrowing down a curated selection of three or four shades you can rotate throughout the season is easier said than done, but there are a few options that have proven worth recommending over others. Whether you’re in the market for dark and bold, or muted and subtle, you’ll fall in love with the 11 lipstick shades ahead.
