You're Going To Want ALL Of These New Fall Lipsticks

Leather jackets, new jeans, cozy sweaters — we’re all for building up our fall wardrobes around this time of year, but we also like to give a little love to our makeup bags, too. Because let’s face it: By the time you’ve worn your new jacket to death, or that pumpkin-spice latte has lost its allure, or the refreshingly crisp air has turned downright cold, a really great lipstick (or ten) is the gift that keeps on giving all the way through the season.

With this in mind, we sifted through the new fall lipstick collections to find the best of the best. And we’re calling it: From vampy burgundies to super-flattering reds to mood-lifting pinks, these 14 shades are the ones you’re going to be seeing everywhere this season. Click through to check out the goods — straight from our lips to yours.

It may look like a tinted balm, but there’s nothing “tinted” about this sucker. The formula is rich, creamy, and super-saturated. And the nutty mahogany shade will please anyone who rocked one of those iconic brown shades (like Toast of New York) straight through the ‘90s. This is truly brown-lip realness right here.

If you caught any backstage beauty reports after the fall shows earlier this year, you surely noticed that every single beauty editor was fawning over the dark-lips trend. Well, this is the very lipstick that gave them the Victorian-Gothic fever. It’s a dark burgundy-plum and it’s the exact shade that makeup artist Peter Philips used at the fall 2016 Dior show. There, he topped it off with gloss for a high-shine look; worn alone, it’s perfectly matte.

We're fans of options, and lip palettes give you just that and more. If plum is your thing (as it should be — it's super flattering on everyone), this palette offers eight distinct hues to wear alone or mix together for a custom color. There's something for every look, from professional bruncher to social butterfly, and everything in between.

This might not be the lipstick you'd wear to a job interview. Instead, this shiny, opaque, black-with-a-capital-B is what you wear when you feel like a grade-A badass who just DGAF.

This may not become your go-to shade, but it sure makes for a killer selfie. Think of this one as the coolest possible Snapchat filter come to life. The shade itself is a soft lavender; the highly pigmented formula (which comes in 32 other hues, BTW — all of which are eminently wearable) is creamy, silky, and long-lasting.

Laced with a “seductive” rose-and-musk fragrance and emblazoned with romantic mantras in six different languages, this one is designed to help bring more love into your life. And while we can’t guarantee it’s going to get you a date, we can promise that it’s really, really pretty. The classic red has ever-so-slight blue undertones and claims to flatter every skin tone. “This color is amazing,” says Los Angeles makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. “It looks good on everyone.”

You bring the confidence and this striking brick red will do the rest. It works well on all skin tones, says Greenberg, and the liquid formula is as matte as matte can be. You’ll love it — and that’s a good thing, because it lasts all. Freaking. Day. Bonus: 20% of the retail price goes to Project Chimps, an organization that works to end medical research on chimpanzees.

If you like vampy, have we got a lipstick for you. It’s a deep, blood red that’s crazy glossy. It's like patent leather for your lips — only shinier.

You’ve seen it on Instagram, the runway, and multiple supermodels — and you’d better get used to it. Legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath's mix-and-match set comes with two shades of matte lipstick, two loose glitters to pat on top, and a clear gloss. Pile them on for an eye-catching effect that’s like twinkling ruby slippers for your lips.

If lavenders, glitters, or dark-AF colors aren’t for you (or your office), consider this one. The soft, neutral pink shade is particularly flattering on fair to medium skin tones; the creamy, matte finish makes it feel fresh and new.

A bright, happy pink may not scream “fall,” but stay with us here: This warm, coral shade is an instant brightener for dull, washed-out skin, not to mention it’s a total mood-lift for those times when it’s raining for the third day in a row.

If you ate a grape popsicle and then quickly swiped on lipgloss, you’d approximate the look of this super-cool, shiny purple. And the formula itself is fantastic: slick, easy, and lightweight like a gloss, but with lots of color and coverage like a lipstick.

NARS Velvet Lip Glide in La Main Bleue, $26, available at NARS.

If glitter-lips aren’t for you, may we suggest the slightly subtler shine of this one? It gives off a soft metallic sheen — not a full-on sparkle-fest — and the deep mauve brown looks particularly amazing on dark complexions. Plus, the liquid formula means business. Paint it on and it’s not going anywhere.

Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme in Pure Matteness, $8.99, available at Milani.

Sometimes you want to look like a badass in all black. And sometimes you want to look like Malibu Barbie. Can you guess which look this one is for? This bright, electric pink is super-girly, but the cushiony matte finish helps cut down on the sweet factor.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Menace, $17, available at Sephora.

This overachiever was designed to work on cheeks and lids, too, but we love it best on lips. The color is the perfect berry: a deep brownish-reddish burgundy that’s just so good. Tap it on for a sheer, just-bitten effect, or really pile it on for a more dramatic, monochromatic moment.

Bite Beauty Multistick in Cerise, $24, available at Sephora.

We love an indie brand in our makeup bags, but Dose of Colors is so much more than that. This liquid lipstick comes in a bevy of incredible shades — from this rich chocolate to bright reds. And the pigment clings to your lips. Don't believe us? Our beauty director Cat Quinn actually went scuba diving in a shade and it didn't budge. Now that's some lipstick dedication.

Dose of Colors Chocolate Wasted, $18, available at Dose of Colors.
