The Best Fall Lipstick Colors for 2014—From Bright Red to Deep Berry

While you may not be excited for summer to official end, the good news is that a new season means new lipstick colors. To make matters even better, fall is the ultimate lipstick season when it comes to darker, striking hues and deeper pigments. (You know, the kind of stuff lipstick fans like best!)

This fall, the overall vibe is decidedly moody, with wine and berry colors taking center stage, alongside strong brown and beige tones. For red lipstick lovers, never fear, this season has plenty of vampy, bright red shades to choose from. For those that tend to shy away from a strong lip, there are great options for you too—from refreshing nudes to pinky-beige colors.

No matter what your color preference, we can pretty much guarantee you’ll find your perfect shade from one of the fall lipstick colors listed below!

We love this bold, bright red color for the fall season. Best of all, it goes on smooth—giving the dry, chapped lips that come along with cooler weather a moisturizing boost—but then it dries with a matte finish. Perfect!

Part of Jason Wu’s third collaboration with Lancome, this berry tinted color was inspired by Wu’s Fall 2014 fashion collection.

For a really soft nude lip, try this Tom Ford’s Vanilla Suede. You’re starting to pull your suede out of the back of your closet, so why not wear it one your lips too?

No one does a dark lip quite like Kat Von D, so it’s no surprise that her “Homegirl” shade is one of the strongest deep colors of the season. A cult favorite, the matte black cheery color is apparently inspired by one of her favorite lipsticks as a teen.
