Much the same way a Pumpkin Spice Latte is a staple tradition of fall, finally getting to don your favorite autumnal lip color is just as sacred. The beautiful purple plums and deep reds that would usually be considered to bold for Spring and Summer have finally come out to play! (To be fair, I often do not play by the rules and wear some of these lip colors year round.)
My biggest tip for rocking these awesome colors is to always start with a clean and moisturized canvas. The canvas being your lips. I always begin with my Bubblegum lip scrub from lush! This is such a lifesaver. There was a time in my life I had no idea you needed to exfoliate your lips just as you do the rest of your body.
As for moisturizing my two main products to hit up are just a plain lip balm by Blistex called Lip Medex. Sturdy and long lasting it is bar far the most soothing for the dry cold months. My other faithful lip balm is the Baby Lips Dr.Rescue. This is great if you want a little bit of color as well as healing properties.
Time to get to the good stuff! Let’s just dive in shall we?
#2. Iced Amethyst 265 by Revlon.
A lovely plum shade that isn’t too light nor too dark. I struggle with darker colors washing me out, but this manages to capture the rich purple and sparkles with out being too much!
#3. Revlon Color Stay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion.
This is one of the best color stains I’ve come across. It sounds strange to say that even as it wears off throughout the day, the color still looks amazing. As lip stains tend to, it has a wee bit of trouble staying in place at first but practice makes perfect!
#4. Clinique Spiced Apple.
This one is an oldie but a goodie. You can see I’ve nearly used it up! Its one of those lipsticks you find that is the perfect color. It isn’t too flashy for casual outings, and just bold enough to be formal. I’ve had it for way too long and I’m due for a new tube soon!
That is my list of must have fall lip colors! They are all moderately priced, and very lovely! These are all colors that go well with a paler skin tone, since I, myself am on the paler side.
Here is a swatch of all the colors and how they look on.
Hope you enjoyed! Cheers!
