The Best Fall Lip Trends and Dupes

Every fall season a new wave of awesome fills my local Walgreens and MAC counter, and by that I mean the new releases of vampy, beautiful fall lipsticks. Out of every makeup product, lipstick is hands down my favorite. I believe there’s a magic in those tubes that makes me feel like I can conquer the day. This fall I’ve picked four lipstick trends, with some affordable finds, that took over the runways and will make you feel like you can take over the world, or school or your office tasks. Because who doesn’t love a lipstick compliment to get you through the day?

1. The Romantic Rose Lip

Rose colored lips bring some life into your face, unlike a straight nude lip, especially for those radioactive pale girls like myself. These lipsticks have a slight pinky or sometimes brown undertone that gives your lips a romantic flush. These are what many beauty bloggers call a “your lips but better” shade. The three shades I found will become your effortless school staple, Maybelline’s Touch of Spice from their Creamy Mattes collection, Revlon’s Matte Balm in Sultry and Bite Beauty’s Pepper, which I believe to be my holy grail rose-colored lip.

2. The Pinkberry Lip

 MAC’s Rebel lipstick is the perfect fall lip color. I swear I think I dream about this color, along with emerald-green nails and chunky sweaters, this pinky-purpley lipstick is my staple every fall. If you are just venturing into berry lips I suggest trying this shade as it is not as intense as a deep burgundy plum lipstick (don’t worry I love those too and have my picks below!). But at $17 I can understand if you would rather buy your Friday night round of drinks instead of a costly lipstick. But not to worry, in my lipstick obsessed haze I’ve found some great dupes like NYX’s Aria, which I believe is an almost exact dupe for Rebel, and it has the same name as one of my favorite Game of Thrones characters! Also, Milani’s Sangria and Black Cherry are a great find at only $4.79 a piece

3. The Diva Deep Lip

A burgundy lip is the dark side twist to a classic red. Red lips are amazing, but to me a deep plum-burgundy color lip screams vampiress, and who doesn’t want to feel a little edgy? This lip color makes a bold statement and is perfect if you want to have a lazy face day with bare eyes and cheeks; just throw on one of these shades with some mascara and you’ll feel Pumpkin Spice latte good. Or this is great for a night out in place of the same ol’ smokey eye. Also, there are many drugstore options for this kind of lip, Maybelline has a whole collection dedicated to it called the Plums! Personally I love these lips matte, like Maybelline’s Divine Wine. Or the super daringly dark, Dark Side by MAC.

4. The Classic Red

Matte red lips have been a staple since your grandma’s day when screen sirens wore this color to the supermarket as well as red carpets. Finding the perfect matte red lip can be as hard as buying your first car: it’s a lot of trial and error. When you’re on a budget you have no time for trial and error, but lucky for you I’m the queen of buying stuff and testing it out. Red lipstick is the essence of glamour and instantly makes you feel like you can tackle mostly anything, but it also bleeds, tugs and makes your teeth look yellow; youtuber leighannsays explains here. So I’ve found 3 rock star, universal shades that will make you reach for one of these lipsticks all the time this fall, and that won’t get all over your face when you go on a date!

  1. I really love fall lipstick colors as well, particularly a nice retro red. I like how you show a staple brand, like MAC, then also showcase a less expensive version of that color. Very helpful to college students, or anyone on a budget. Very helpful and fun!

  2. I have many of these shades of fall color lipsticks and what’s not to love about them? I think you did a great job explaining each color, how and when you can wear them. I like how you substituted MAC lipsticks with drugstore lipsticks for a cheaper price. You should do a post regarding different lipstick shades for different skin tones for the fall or a lipstick application post since you do a great job. You can even do the best of reds for the fall. I enjoyed your post!
