Favourite Lip Looks for Fall

September 7, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I have decided that I need to accept that fall is coming whether I like it or not. So I’m embracing the parts of fall I like, which includes fall lip colours. Today I’m going to share the lip colours and combinations that I like for the fall season. I would always recommend using a lip liner with because it makes everything much easier to apply and look much neater. I didn’t use any lip liners for the pictures in this post because I wanted to make sure you could see the true colour of the lip products I chose. So forgive any rough edges, I do use a lip liner most of the time.

I’m going to start with some lighter shades I like for fall because I think dark lips are always a fall trend, but we still need some lighter lip colours for variety.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick- Naturally Chic

So one of the biggest trends for this fall in the beauty world is the 90-esque rosy-brown nude. There were many trends in the 90s that should really never come back into style, but darker nude lips I can handle. This lip colour isn’t so brown that fair skinned girls can’t wear it, but it has enough brown to be a nude. The addition of the rosy undertones really help to make it wearable. So if you’re interested in trying out this trend for less than $6 I would give this lip colour a go.

Mac Pure Zen with Bite Beauty Lip Gloss Library #7 Gloss

MAC Pure Zen


I mentioned this next favourite in my August favourites post, but I had to include it. Orange is also on trend and a peachy lip is a great soft way to wear this style. I find Pure Zen to be a bit sheer on its own, so I added a darker peachy-coral gloss over it to bring out the colour a little more. This colour is still soft and neutral, but the hints of orange really bring warmth to your face.

Revlon Matte Balm in Standout

I couldn’t write this post without a great red. This shade from Revlon is a deeper shade of red, even deeper than in the pictures. It’s a great classic shade, with no orange tones. It’s completely matte, but isn’t drying at all and stains to leave colour on your lips all day. If you’re looking for a classic, matte true red with a deeper edge, this is a great shade. I think this would be flattering on all skin tones. I think everyone needs a classic red in their collection and this is a fairly inexpensive option.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick- Uptown Mauve

My fourth mention has to go to Milani’s Uptown Mauve. This shade isn’t the darkest lip colour I have to show in this post, but it’s a great shade to ease into darker lip colours. It’s a medium-deep shade that is purple with lots of pink in it, making it much easier to wear. If you’re also delving into purple, this is like a transition shade, it is purple, but not completely. This is a cream finish, so it’s not completely matte, but not really glossy either. It’s my favourite finish from Milani’s line. I wore this on my first day back at school from before 9am all the way until 4pm with colour still on my lips. This is definitely a great shade, you can still have a little darkness on the eyes and pull this off, whereas with some dark dark shades I like to keep the eyes very light for balance.

Sephora Collection Luster Matte Lip Color- Mulberry

This next shade is a classic berry type shade, a fall staple in my opinion. It’s a deep cranberry type shade, deep pink with red undertones and a hint of plum. This is just a classic shade, it makes your lips look so full, yet it’s not super dark. This comes in the form of a liquid lipstick with a flat doe foot applicator to apply. Due to it’s format, I would highly, highly recommend a lip liner with this one. It’s super pigmented, so it can be a bit unforgiving. It is very comfortable to wear though due to its very creamy texture.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick Sangria with Maybelline Color Elixir in Caviar Couture

This lip is for the true dark lip lovers. It’s a deep purple, berry toned shade. This shade is matte and could be worn without the gloss, but I like the gloss for deepening the colour even further. I say if you’re going to rock dark lips, rock them all the way. This shade definitely would benefit from a lip liner, since it is so dark. I really enjoy this shade, with light makeup and fresh looking skin, it really stands out.

So there you go! If you’re looking for some fall ‘lip-spiration’ I hope this helped you find some new shades to pick up!

Bye for now!

    There are all so gorgeous. It’s technically spring here but it’s still cold enough to make most of these shades seem appropriate.

        I’ve never bought from them before. How is the pricing on their products? X

          In the US where I bought this it was $16, so on par with MAC lipsticks, but in Canada it’s slightly more than MAC ($20).
