There's one thing I love most about changing up my beauty routine in the Fall, and it's all about the lips. In Summer, I still wear color but I go for a balm with SPF, followed by a bright stain on top. Heavy lipsticks don't seem appropriate, do they?

However, once we kiss Summer goodbye, I begin reaching for saturated plums, reds, and rosy hues. A glam lip automatically transforms your look, and it beautifully compliments all of the rich textures we begin to wear. Think about the trends we are seeing: velvet, chunky knits, lace, suede - all gorgeous materials that look even more sumptuous paired with a striking bold lip. Obviously I'm all about it and I've listed my favorite lipsticks this year below.

NARS "Sex Machine" - a slightly shimmery rose that's great for day. It's my new neutral. 

Glo Skin Beauty "It Girl" - pinky plum cream. 

M.A.C. "Ravishing" - red that leans orange. 

Clinique "Black Honey" - looks scary in the tube but applies like a balm and has some shine to it. I remember it was a big seller in the 90's! It's very sheer so it's a great way to start if you haven't delved into bold lips yet.

Too Faced Spice Spice Baby
All by M.A.C. - Syrup, Twig, See Sheer, Hot Gossip, Velvet Teddy

Can you see how beautiful a bold lip will be with all of Fall's outfits?

Do you play with darker lip colors in the Fall? Let me know of any I may "need."


  1. I have my lippies for Fall lined up, maybe I should do a post.


  2. I'm not very good about changing my lipsticks up for the season...I tend to go kind of neutral year round, but more dramatic for evening if I feel like it. Love seeing your favorites, though! MAC Syrup is one of mine, too. And your cardigan collection is fab!
