When it comes to lipstick, it seems as if we’re always bombarded with a hundred different shades from a thousand different brands. In the spring and summer, we are bombarded with the return of bright colors like pinks and oranges.
When it comes to fall lipsticks, the color palette takes on a dark approach with deeper and warmer tones.

Black lipstick was once seen as a gothic trend, but it has become a staple in anyone’s closet that’s looking to make a statement with their makeup.
If you’re looking for a few brands with black lipstick to try, check out these three.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Witches,” $20
Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in the shade “Perry Panther,” $7
NYX Cosmetics Macaron Lippies in the Shade “Chambord,” $6
I’m blue, da-ba-dee-da-ba-die. You might not be blue, but this season, you might find that your fall lipsticks are! Although the black lipstick trend was initially seen in gothic fashion, the blue lipstick trend popped out of the woodwork! When it comes to blue hues, you’ll find that you’re either dealing with a lighter turquoise shade or a deeper indigo.
One rule of thumb when applying blue lipstick is to always try with a liner first. For colors like blue, it is easy to tell if the lipstick is streaky because your natural lip color will peak through. If you’re ready to join the blue wo(man) group, check out these blue lippies.
Melt Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in the shade “DGAF.” $19
Lena Lashes More Matte than Matte in the shade “Angelo,” $6
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Angelo,” $20
Before the rise of Kylie Cosmetics, brown lipsticks were a growing trend but it’s no surprise that with the coming of Kylie Jenner’s own brown liquid lipstick that the trend rose even more.
Brown lipsticks are a huge trend for these upcoming fall months, and we’re not just talking any brown. There are many brown shades that have hints of orange in them, but we’re talking deep brown.
Although Colourpop Cosmetics “Limbo” might appear deep on women with fairer skin tones, it does not hold the same effect as it would on a woman with a deeper complexion. Thankfully, the brown shades from Lena Lashes and Kylie Cosmetics look rich and dark on a variety of skin tones.

Bright oranges are the call for the warmer months but deeper oranges are a staple for fall lipsticks. For these months, we’re trading in the neons for burnt oranges and terracottas.
If you’re thinking of all the deeper orange shades in a 64-count Crayola box, that’s the vibe we’re going for! Not only are deep oranges perfect for the fall because they’re reminiscent of the leaves that scatter the ground, but they’re perfect for pairing with the other classic fall colors like camel and olive green.
For women with deeper skin tones, the “classic” deep orange might not look so deep on you. To counter this, try pairing your shade on top of a dark brown lip liner to achieve the perfect fall look!
Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Lovebug,” $6
Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Miami Fever,” $19.90
Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Kae,” $6
If there is one shade you can get away with wearing during any season, it’s red. For reasons unknown, red has been the classic and staple lip color of any makeup collection.
Although we’re a fan of the candy red lipstick all year round, our fall lipsticks are trading in the brighter shade for its deeper companion. The vampy reds of the season will have you giving Dracula, Edward Cullen, and even Count von Count a run for their money. Just like most red shades, this deeper alternative works wells with almost any wardrobe.

Keep your eye out for a few vampy red shades that will leave your lips looking like you just finished a serving of blood long after you tried wiping it away.
MAC Lipstick in the shade “Media,” $17
Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Black Rose,” $18
Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the Shade “Havana Nights,” $19.90
If you fell into the hype of 50 Shades of Grey, then you’d probably realize that gray is a fast growing trend, even in the makeup industry. Many makeup lovers are hesitant of the gray trend because of the ashy appearance of the color, but it seems that gray is the “traveling pants” of the lipstick world – it goes great with many different skin tones.
While you might be caught deciding whether or not you can master the gray lipstick trend, you might first want to recognize the different types.
You first have your “pure” gray which resembles the lipstick from Smashbox and then you have Halsey’s lipstick from MAC which has a very distinct blue undertone.
Smashbox Be Legendery Lipstick in the shade “Punked Matte,” $21
MAC x Halsey Lipstick in the shade “Halsey,” $17
Last, but certainly not least, if you’re not ready to try your hand at black, blue, or brown lipstick, you can always take your first shot at purple. Purple lipstick has significantly grown in the makeup world and there’s a good reason for it.
If you’re ready to branch out into different colors without wanting to take a dive into the deep end with an extremely bold color like black, purple is a good transitional color.
If you’re not dealing with a true purple, chances are you’re dealing with a purple that has either pink or red undertones to it which will help you, especially if you’re transitioning from pink or red lipsticks.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes in the shade “Transylvania,” $6
Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Liquid Lipsticks in the shade “Matte Glam,” $5.99
MAC Lipstick in the shade “Smoked Purple,” $17
