15 Dark Lipsticks, 15 Gorgeous Ways

A bold, dark lip is as quintessentially autumnal as changing leaves, chilly breezes, and cozy layers. In no other season does rich berry, burnt sienna, or even dark purple feel so right. And, if you're ever going to really go for it in the statement lip department, now's the time. In fact, we're such staunch supporters of the bold fall lip, we set out on a mission to prove that anyone can wear it...starting with our own staff.
Because so many people worry that dark lipstick won't match their skin tone, we gathered women with a wide range of complexions, and asked makeup artist Kim Weber to find their most flattering dark color. From people who had never touched such dark shades before to self-identified lipstick mavens, everyone was amazed at the stunning end results, and learned a thing or two about how to bring out our best features.
