5 Dark Fall Lip Colors You'll Want in Your Life

Happy Halloween to everyone! I wish I could say I have an awesome Pinterest inspired Halloween costume I made from scratch this year but unfortunately, I'll be among one of the millions (I'm sure) staying in getting my rest on during Halloween festivities.

I normally partake in some aspect of Halloween by decorating the outside of my apartment, carving pumpkins with the fam. , and roasting fresh pumpkin seeds. However, it seems that my schedule was preoccupied by things called "work" and "school". Now that I've taken on the responsibility of two jobs while I'm in school, there's no way I'm getting any "me" time for a while.

So, for today's post, I'm hooking ya'll up with some of my favorite "berry-ish/vamp-ish" lip colors for fall (and even a muted version for all you light lippy women out there) Enjoy!

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense "Broadest Berry"
This was my first EVER Clinique purchase along with my first Chubby Stick. I love the beautiful mid-tone burgundy berry shade it gives my lips. It's definitely for someone who doesn't mind a bit of color but not too much at the same time!

Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color "Witty"
The color pay off with the Pretty Amazing Lip Colors is fabulous. This shade in particular is a super saturated berry wine color. Talk about intense! This will be your full on glossy and highly pigmented lip color for fall!

Revlon Color Burst Lip Stick "Lilac"
I personally love this shade for all year round! However, the hint of berry undertones really does make it "fall appropriate" - especially if you aren't into the dark vampy lips this year. I also love the consistency of these lipsticks, so smooth!

NYX Round Case Lip Stick "Violet Ray"
Out of the colors I chose, this one is probably the most unique. It's almost like a metallic dark grape color. This definitely delivers a dark wine effect to the lips!

Wet n' Wild "Cherry Bomb"
Calling all EXTREME dark lip fans! I would have to say this is probably the darkest lip color I own. Don't let it's appearance fool you, give it two coats and your lips may just look black. I wear this maybe once a year when I'm feeling extra daring. Definitely worth the $1.99 as far as color pay off goes!

Swatch Fest!

What fall lip colors are you guys loving? :)

Until next time...


  1. I picked up Tarte's lip surgence in "Enchanted" on my arm it looked like a pale pink but on my lips it gives me a nice berry color, it's not too much for me (because I don't wear a lot of color) but its just enough to make a difference.

  2. Ooo, I've got to get my hands on some of that wet n' wild "Cherry Bomb". Looks awesome!

  3. I love Clinique's "Broadest Berry" - such a pretty color. I'm currently loving BH Cosmetics' "Moody Merlot" as my favorite dark lip color for the fall! (
