There are no rules that prohibit rocking a bright lip in the fall, but we do love a traditional autumn palette when the temperatures drop. Jewel tones, burnt brights, impossibly dark shades, and subdued mattes will always have our heart this time of the year. We’re talking bloody reds ripe for a vampire, deep forest greens, and gothic shades of purple, midnight blue, and beautiful black. There’s a color for apple-picking, pumpkin spice sipping, and Ren Faire hijinks. Let the season change lead your lipstick choices. Below are some of our favorite fall lipstick shades for you to browse.
