Today’s post is dedicated to all the beauties living above the equator! Fall’s fast approaching the Northern Hemisphere. It’s time to change the color scheme of both your wardrobes and your faces! Since I’ve already experienced this beautiful season this year, I thought I should talk about the lipstick shades that I’ve personally enjoyed wearing. KEEP IN MIND that this is just a guide to what colors you can wear this fall, you don’t have to own the exact lipstick as shown in the photos. I have included some different options for each category; both high end and drugstore alternatives.
BERRIES AND PLUMS
Berry is the color of the season! When I think of fall/autumn I think of berry or plum lips! My favorite berry lipstick for fall was the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick by Kate Moss in 107 (third from left). In the photo its showing up more plummy but in real life its more of a deep maroon berry color. It’s semi matte and I love it. I’ve worn this the most this fall!
Another color that has been my all time favorite for fall is Mac Rebel (middle). It’s a very nice semi dark plummy purply color with a satin finish. It’s a very popular lipstick in the beauty community.
Lastly, I’ll be talking about a limited edition shade. It’s from the RiRi loves Mac collection and it’s called Heaux (first from left). The RiRi collection is still available in Australia (online) and maybe available in some other countries. This is considered to be a matte version of rebel or atleast pretty close to it. I find it to have a more pink tone whereas rebel leans more purple. Nevertheless I love this shade !!
Some other awesome berry/plum lippies:
YSL Rouge Volupte in Forbidden Burgundy 12
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Venom
Mac Diva and Media
Milani Color Statement in Sangria and Black Cherry
Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb and Sugar Plum Fairy
Red lippies are timeless! Red lips make any look glamorous in any time of the year. I personally tend to reach for my blue-toned reds during fall. This is completely a personal choice because many of you might like warmer toned reds reminiscent of fall leaves. I just love my blue tones in the colder weathers and blue tones makes you teeth look whiter!!
First I have the cult favorite: Mac Ruby Woo (first from left). This is the best red lipstick in my opinion! If you don’t have it, please go get it! It is a matte and quite drying that I must say. But the awesomeness of the color makes up for all that!
Then I have Mac RiRi Woo (middle). This is also limited edition but it’s still available in Australia and it will be repromoted with special packaging this October! It has a retro matte finish which is Mac’s new finish. Retro matte finish is actually drier and stiff. This shade is very very very similar to Ruby Woo, just a tad bit darker. I love it! And that’s no surprise since I love Ruby Woo so much!
Lastly I have Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl (third from the left). This is a more pinky toned red. It’s absolutely fabulous. It’s also easier to apply since it’s in a pencil form!
Other blue toned Reds:
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick in Exces de Rouge 523 (a favorite of Dita Von Teese)
Guerlain Rouge G in Garconne
Mac Russian Red
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Red Label and Best Red
Wet N Wild Stoplight Red 911d
Nyx Round Lipstick in Chaos
Purple lips have been all the trend recently. Even though it might be a bit unconventional, I think purple lips look fab in fall!
Firstly I have Mac Heroine (first from left) which is a limited edition color. This maybe available through Ebay or Amazon but I had to include it since it’s one of my very favorite lipsticks! It’s such a beautiful purple and quite hard to dupe. I love it!
Then I have TopShop Straight Ace (middle). This lipstick is a close dupe of Heroine so if you have TopShop near you, it might be worth checking out. It has a creamier, glossier finish thought and is a tad bit darker.
Lastly , I have Maybelline Vivids Hot Plum (third from left). It’s a beautiful fuschia purple and one of my recent buys! It’s cheap too!

I usually love bright lipsticks and wear them all the time, but during fall and winter I do wear a lot of nudes aswell. These are the nudes that I’ve been loving this fall.
Revlon Balm Stain in Honey has been my go to everyday nude. It’s so easy to apply that I just wear it all the time when I’m running late for work. It’s moisturising and has pretty good color pay off !
Mac Modesty is a nude that has a subtle brown tone. I think it’s great for people with tan to dark skintones. It’s a cremesheen finish.
Mac Brave is my all time favorite nude. I stole it from my mom hehe! It has a subtle pink tone to it and it’s a matte. I love it!
Other Notable Nudes:
YSL Rouge Volupte Nude Beige 01
Mac Velvet Teddy, Honey Love, Myth, Yash
Rimmel Nude Delight
Milani Color Statement in Teddy Bear
Nyx Black Label Lipstick in India
**Lastly I would like to add a few names of really dramatically dark lips! I personally don’t like the look of really dark lips on me but just wanted to throw out some options for you. Fall and winter is the perfect time to sport a dark vampy lip!
