Rimmel The Only One Lipstick in Naughty Nude

$9 BUY NOW

If nude is the only way you roll, try this formula, which is just as moisturizing and wearable as a gloss, but made to last all day.

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in American Woman

$26 BUY NOW

This super-wearable, rosy-nude shade is a great gateway lipstick to bolder hues. For now though, those who fear too much color will love this happy medium.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Wild Child

$20 BUY NOW

If you're still loving the juicy shades you wore during the summer, this doesn't have to be goodbye! Just give them a more fall-like finish with this bright-but-matte liquid lipstick.

Bite Beauty Multistick in Praline

$24 BUY NOW

The simplest way to craft a fall look with minimal product, Bite's Multistick counts as a lip color, cream blush, and eyeshadow. Praline is described as a "spicy peach" that's not too orange and not too pink (the color resembles a sunset in-action). Made with only 35% powder and infused with sugarcane-derived squalene for a weightless longwear, this formula, combined with its autumnal hue, cemented the chic shade as a favorite on-sight.

Rouge Dior in 643 Stand Out

$35 BUY NOW

J'adore Dior's novel orange; a level of autumnal couture, the buildable pigment starts off as a soft shade, but it can be made richer with a second coat. Its elegant, yet almost whimsical, color lives up to its name, especially when the season's status quo calls for a variation of red and purple. 

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Spice Girl

$20 BUY NOW

We find it unnecessary to reiterate how '90s trends are in the midst of a modern takeover — our favorite lipstick brands are doing it for us. A palpable ode to the era's female power group, Spice Girl packs Posh's attitude, Scary's grit, and Baby's soft nature in one tube. A versatile choice for ultra feminine and sporty chicks alike, the brownish mauve definitely has "girl power" written all over it.

Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Crème in Matterialistic

$9 BUY NOW

In lieu of '90s tradition, we beg you to not take the rebirthing of brown lipstick for granted. Milani's milk chocolate hue augmented with a rose gold tint is grunge, grown-up. A lovely choice for formal as well as casual occasions, we approve of this metallic for everyday use. 

Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color in 795 Smoking Red

$6 BUY NOW

At first application, Maybelline's harvest red could pass as the solid alternative to KVD's liquid lip (and for less than half the cost), but it'll settle over lips with an added berry component. Wine is timeless, so slick it on over bare lips for an opaque pout on your way to dinner. 

Mally Beauty H3 Lipstick in Grapevine

$21 BUY NOW 

Mally was one of the first cosmetic brands this beauty editor was exposed to growing up, and one she'll often turn to for makeup made by a true expert. Chosen from the line's H3 Gel collection, look no further than Grapevine's cranberry stain for seasonal wear. 

Gallany Cosmetics Crème Satin Lipstick in Just Nude

$22 BUY NOW

Whether or not you fancy yourself a lipstick enthusiast, every woman should have a neutral on hand. To consider Gallany's Just Nude to be a your-lips-but-better formula would be an accurate response to the color. Featuring a spot of honey brown to emphasize lips, it'll look pretty on every skin tone.

Lipstick Queen Smokey Lip Kit

$35 BUY NOW

Poppy King's Black Lace Rabbit is the cosmetic key into an alternate universe where smoky eyes come second to the Queen's reigning trend. This fall, the bold lip will morph into something sexy by veiling full-coverage lipstick underneath Lipstick Queen's sheer black formula decorated in gold flecks. It's not dreary, it's mysterious, and it's meant to be worn with lace and leather.

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Babe Alert

$24 BUY NOW

Replace all the neon, pastel, and obnoxiously bright pink lipsticks you have lingering around your vanity drawers from summer with this subtle variation. Babe Alert is a classic rose gold that'll last a full work or school day of wear. The precision to full tip makes a flawless application possible on the first coat if you're looking for a literal quick lip.

stila Stay All Day Matte'ificent Lipstick in Soiree

$22 BUY NOW

The trick to pulling off an outwardly bold shade of pink in the fall is making sure it has visibly red or purple undertones. Soiree is a perky matte finish we'd pair with a patch-adorned denim jacket when running errands, or with chandelier earrings for a formal affair. 

NARS Cosmetics Audacious Lipstick in Kate

$32 BUY NOW

Plum will always be fall's leading purple hue, but for now let's focus on orchid. Kate's shade is a cheerful one; no less bold than a stark purple hue, it's a peppy, satin-finish color that's equal parts seductive and sassy. Wear it to the pumpkin patch with your guy, and you'll ensure a rendezvous in the corn maze.
