Fall’s Most Essential Lip Color

UPDATE: This previously ran on August the 14th, as we’re now shopping for Fall we wanted to bring it back to inspire you and your Fall wardrobe

The colour for fall for is deep and romantic and is perfect for your lips. The signature red lipstick we usually opt for takes a romantic and mysterious turn. Make your fall look more dramatic this season with a colour that’s not too far from a deep red bottle of wine with a plum tinge.  We’ve taken it off the runways from fall 2012 shows like Nina Ricci and placed it right into our latest look book “Rad in Plaid”. It’s a great contrast to multiples of layers for fall. Here are our favorite plum red colours for your lips: Dolce and Gabbana in Ultra, Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Plum, Nars lipstick in Scarlet Empress.

  1. I love this look! If anyone is looking for a lipstick alternative, Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is AWESOME! It’s a really similar dark red hue, but it goes on sheer so you can build up the color. I’ve been using it for over a year and it’s one of my favorite lip products besides NARS lip pencils :)

  2. Black Tie by Dior is also another wonderful choice colour for fall. It’s more on the plum side, and it also a colour that can be built on to make darker and more dramatic. Love it.

  3. I saw a recent pix of Vanessa Hudgens rocking a berry lipstick and was instantly inspired. Even though I don’t wear lipstick, this is one thing I’m giving a try once I get my teeth whitened.

  4. I recently purchased Rossetto by Rimmel (a cheaper alternative if you’re a penny pincher like moi). It’s a dark purple color, really vampy. I can’t wait to try it out. I’m with Liah – maybe after I get my teeth whitened a little!

  5. NO BLACK PLEASE!!!!! I love pink and am looking for something in a MAUVE COLOR – not “baby pink” but a richer MAUVE color. PERFECT FOR FALL — I am a breast cancer survivor and will pass your name along to my friends. We need all those wwho are willing to help us “FIGHT THE FIGHT” and I am looking for different shades of PINK.
