FALLIN’ FOR A KISS: FALL LIP COLORS

TEN MATTE LIPPIES FOR FALL

Lipstick has become the newest accessory to complete almost any look. All you really need these days is to get your eyebrows on fleek, curl your lashes, throw on some lip color and look put together. Now that Daylight Savings is over, the days get darker and so do our lips. Dark lips have been the “GET IN” trend that has fought for its place and is here to stay and who doesn’t love that? Along with the dark lips, we love ’em MATTE. Yes, MATTE! I think the matte texture gives it more of a classic look. So here are TEN FALL MATTE LIPPIES to acheive that sultry and seductive look.

1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania
Transylvania – Matte Deep Plum
Ulta, $5.99 USD
Perfect for a dark vampy look without going black.

2. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Endless Purple
Endless Purple – Matte Mauve Plum
Sephora, $13.00 USD
This is not only great for fall, but an all-year color. It gives you a pop of color without being too dark.

3. Limecrime Velvetines in Salem
Salem – Matte Chocolate Brown
Limecrime, $20.00 USD
Brown, often overlooked as a lip color, is both bold and beautiful.

4. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Vampira
Vampira – Deep Reddish Burgandy
Sephora, $19.00 USD
Kat Von D’s go-to. What’s more to say?

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
Stockholm – Mid-tone Beige Pink
Ulta, $5.99 USD
Another color great for all-year. Just enough color for the “my lips, but better” look.

6. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Always Red
Always Red – Matte Bold Classic Red
Sephora, $13.00 USD
The classic red lip will ALWAYS be in!

7. Limecrime Velvetines in Wicked
Wicked – Matte Burgandy-Red
Limecrime, $20.00 USD
This gorgeous color is very seductive. Right amount of sexy and classy.

8. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita
Lolita – Dusty Rose
Sephora, $19.00 USD
The versatile lippie you go to for a casual look either day or night.

9. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
Copenhagen – Matte Rich Plum
Ulta, $5.99 USD
A cross between burgandy and berry. This may be your new fave Holiday shade.

10. Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Dark Berry
Dark Berry – Satin Blackberry Wine
Sephora, $13.00 USD
Okay, this may not be so matte BUT it’s a go in our book (lol). The satin/metallic berry look will easily transition from Fall to Winter making this a Winter Winner.

TIPS FOR WEARING MATTE LIP COLORS:

{*EXFOLIATE}
Let’s be real, matte lipsticks can be a little drying and accentuate any existing dryness. Exfoliating will help keep your unwanted flakes from showing up. Use an old soft toothbrush and GENTLY scrub away the dead skin cells or mix a lil’ honey and sugar  for a lip scrub. Apply your favorite lip moisturizer and let it soak in. Voila, soft lip canvas!

{*LIP-LINER}
Luckily, these lippies all have doe-foot applicators making it a little easier to apply. But a dark lip meant to be seductive can easily go wrong if it’s going all over the place. Use a coordinating lip-liner to prevent from feathering.

Whichever you choose, these lippies will sure get you noticed. If you have any of your own favorites, let us know! We’d love to discover new products!
