top 9 lipsticks

Summer 2016 has been the season of bright lip hues and colors. In general, when summer gives way to fall, the color trends go from bright colors to neutrals such as browns and blacks. For fall 2016 sweater-weather has something new in store—think berries. Cranberry and raspberry reds are inspiring deep, rich tones that are flattering to all complexions. From liquid lacquers to mattes, there are quite a few standout shades this fall.

Deep and rich hues are only as lovely as the ingredients used to make them. This fall expect to splurge a bit more on a quality lips to give your lips long lasting color that stays put. We’ve compiled a list of our favorites lipsticks to wear this fall.   

  • Stila Stay All Day MATTE’ificent Lipstick

  • Stila is known for creating lipsticks that are as matte as matte gets. Their lipsticks land at the top of our list because matte finishes are here to stay - at least for two more seasons. Stila lipsticks are very gentle and moisturizing on your lips—ergo, they are matte’ificent. Get ready for fall 2016 with one of the incredible dark shades in this range. The Bordeaux–Blackberry and Bonbon–Terracotta are shades worthy of this fall.

    Created with concentrated pigments and oil, this Stila lipstick blends into a long-lasting and creamy matte that is weightless on your lips for long lasting color and comfort. If you need another reason to reach for these beauties, know that they are infused with castor oil, Argan oil, and vitamin E, and completely free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

    Priced at $22, you can buy the Stila Stay All Day Matte’ificent lipsticks at Sephora.

  • Lancome L’Absolue Rouge

  • Lancome’s lipsticks breathe luxury, and the L’Absolue Rouge range is no exception. These long-wear lipsticks are infused with vitamin E and the trademark moisture-boosting Pro-Xylane. Not only do these lippies stay put for up to 8 hours, they are also designed to be fade-, flake-, and feather-proof.

    We love this line because the lipstick stays put and when you are in a rush you can easily forgo lining. For fall 2016, this range has some scintillating dark hues from the purplish-red Berry Noir, to the berrylicious Jezebel, the ultra-dark Definition, and deep Concord grape-colored Hypnotique. Do not be fooled by the extremely dark colors though, these lipsticks are a bit more sheer so make sure you try them on before you buy them.

    Priced at $30-$32, and available at

  • Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick

These lipsticks are infused with a rare and valuable active ingredient, black rose oil. Not only does this active ingredient ensure that the color lasts a long time, the silicone resin imbibed in the lip color forms a shiny film on the lips offering it a vinyl-like radiance.

    With shine and deep color, these lipsticks also create a plumping effect. Made without parabens, each is designed to make your lips appear full and smooth. The Noir Revelateur is a grape-colored lippie, while the Grenat Envoutant is a dark raspberry color—both are perfect for fall 2016.

    For fall 2016, we recommend the deep Gazpacho which is a truly pigmented blue-red hue. Radish is a deep magenta color with plenty of impact and presence too. If you are in the mood for experimentation, try the Nori,  a deep brown-red shade.
