Fall is a mood. It's cabernet over rosé. It's turtlenecks over V-necks. It's Grubhub over rooftop dining. It's cinnamon oatmeal over avocado toast (yeah, we said it). And when it comes to our makeup routine, the fall mood is on the darker side — like, Stranger Things dark. So, that means it's time to put away the fuchsias and corals and stock up on plums and burgundies.
And as if it wasn't hard enough to choose from all the lipstick offerings already available in the market, some of our favorite brands have released new lipsticks for the season. With different shades and finishes at the makeup counter, we're doing a little shopping to get into the autumn mood. We've rounded up the latest lipstick releases that will reflect the shade of the brisk days ahead.
There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Blurred lips are a thing this fall. Think of the look like a lip stain that's worn off after a few hours... but cute. Instead of having to tap and smudge on product to achieve it, Chanel has released a powder-like lip color that gives a velvety matte finish.

Pat McGrath has earned some serious acclaim for her amazing lipstick formulas. This fall she's giving us more to rave about, with 10 more shades of the ultra-popular MatteTrance lipsticks. This oxblood shade is the perfect complement to a bold red wine, since you had to give up rosé.

If you've used up all of your vacation days, this collection might make you feel like you're at the beach. Yes, we know it doesn't compare to a real vacation, but Brazilian blogger Camila Coelho took inspiration from her home country for a limited-edition collection with Lancôme. Each color reflects the culture of the vibrant South American spot.
