5 Fall Lipsticks We're Lusting After

Stuck in a makeup rut? There's no easier (or more awesome) way to switch up your style than with a brand spankin' new lipstick. We're all for a bold pucker, so we sifted through fall's latest lippy launches to pick our five favorite shades. But we didn't stop there. We had our luscious-lipped Project Manager Taylor — who also happens to be a kick-ass makeup artist — take these fall lipsticks for a spin. So, click through to find out how each one performed, which colors rocked our socks off, and which ones Taylor tried to snag for herself, once the shoot wrapped.

A hybrid balm, gloss, and color, we really loved the shiny finish this organic option left behind. Not only did this lipstick smell amazing, but it also felt incredibly lush and hydrating. Taylor deemed this one her favorite (we might have caught her trying to sneak off with it...).

While we adored the blackberry shade of this entry, we found it more difficult to apply than the other lipsticks because the pigments didn't spread as easily. That moody berry hue still makes it worth it in our book though.

The most pigmented of the bunch, this glossy pencil gave lips the pin-up girl treatment with lots of juicy cherry color and a sexy bit of shine. One downfall: Because the color is so pigmented, you need to be really precise in the application.

This budget-friendly pick glided on, and felt creamy and hydrating. It also left a bit of a stain behind after we wiped it off, which hinted at its long-wearing capabilities.

We were instantly smitten with the gorgeous purple hue of this luxe lipstick. It felt creamy and dreamy on the lips and was definitely the easiest to apply, but we wish the color had registered as less pink. It did stain our lips though, which means it's got heaps of stay-put power.
