The fall season has finally begun and to be honest, I’m pretty excited about it. I love how cozy this season is, wearing sweaters, burning candles and of course you can’t forget about the dark lip colors. Fall is the perfect season to bring out all your dark lipsticks, and I definitely have a few favorites which I will share with you in this blogpost. I’ve chosen a few high-end and a few more affordable ones, so there’s something for everyone.

MAC Lipstick – Rebel

As some of you might know, I have a big love for MAC lipsticks. I love their formulas and their color range, so of course I had to pick a favorite to include in this blogpost. I went for rebel as this is a beautiful plum color that’s perfect for fall. This color is more on the purple side and it’s not too dark. MAC describes it as a ‘midtonal cream plum’ and I completely agree with that description.

NYX Matte Lip Cream – Transylvania

The NYX matte lip creams are one of my favorite affordable lip products as their color payoff is amazing and I love the matte finish of them. They are also really comfortable on the lips and stay on for a really long time. The color ‘transylvania’ is such a beautiful dark color that’s perfect for the fall season. Again, it’s more on the purple side but it’s not bright at all. NYX describes it as a ‘matte deep violet’. One thing you do need to keep in mind with this color it that it can be a bit patchy when applying it. So it’s probably best to use a good lipliner underneath.

The Balm Meet Matte Hughes – Charming

This is one of my favorite liquid lipsticks as it lasts all day and I love the color. Again, it’s a dark (but not as dark as the other ones) color that’s on the purple side, but this one is completely different than the two I’ve mentioned above. The color of this lipstick is a lot more muted which makes it a bit more wearable in my opinion.

Wet ‘n Wild Lipstick – Cinnamon Spice

The name of this lipstick already says enough about how perfect it is for the fall season. This is a really affordable lipstick, but it has a beautiful color. I’d say this lipstick is more in the red color range. It has some brown undertones which makes it not as bright as some other reds. I think this is a very wearable color and it will suit a lot of skin tones.

Nars – Cruella

I already showed this lipstick in this haul, and ever since I got it I’ve been wearing it a lot. It has become one of my favorite red lipsticks, as it’s not too bright but at the same time no too dark either. It’s the perfect red color for me. I also love the formula of this lipstick because it feels very comfortable but it does give a matte finish.
