From blushes to lipsticks, I have my personal five favorites for fall lip color! This idea is courtesy of readers Maribel, Sara, Shahnaz, Camille, and Rebecca, who all wanted to see some great shades for autumn. As always, I look forward to hearing about your top five!

  1. NARS Train Bleu — matte, purple berry
  2. Burberry Bright Plum — bright, bold berry-pink
  3. MAC Endless Drama — deep red
  4. Buxom Runaway — rusty plum
  5. Urban Decay Venom — shimmering berry

What are your top five fall lip colors?

  4. Jen

    Ah, such lovely picks! I don’t own any of these, but you’ve definitely tempted me! Especially with the NARS and Burberry :) MAC Rebel is one of my all-time favourite Fall shades! xo

  5. Liz

    I really want to try the Buxom Runaway. Maybe I’ll swatch it later in the week when I go shopping. Anyway, to answer your question my favorite fall lipsticks are Bobbi Brown’s Clove and Raisin Lipsticks. Also, Revlon Toast of New York.

  6. Beth

    I just ordered Venom over the weekend. Happy to see it in your top 5!

  7. Love Bright Plum! So gorgeous…

    Wish we had Buxom in Europe too… I haven’t seen this brand anywhere.

  9. Sasha

    Buxom runaway is gorgeous!

  10. Dolon

    I love MAC’s Dark Side..sensual, vampy and so perfect for medium to dark sin tones!

  11. Verlene

    All are pretty shades; my favoirte is the Urban Decay Venom.

  12. chris

    MAC Rebel, Dubonnet, Hot Tahati and O Lipsticks; Get Rich Quick Dazzleglass.

  13. Barbara

    Yes, thanks! This is my fave season for lipstick. Which reminds me, has there been a release date for Burberry’s fall/winter collection? I am dying for oxblood lipstick.

  14. Jess

    All Mac: Hot Chocolate, O, Fresh Moroccan, Fluid, and my HG: Paula Doef Dazzle, which I wear year round.

  15. Alice

    I have to second Mac Rebel, it’s so good. I also like Lacome Berry Noir and Tom Ford Violet Fatale.

  16. Barbie

    omg venom is gorgeous! i got a sample of one of urban decays new lippies and i love the formula i need all the colors lol

  17. Bel

    MAC – Media
    Maybelline – Red Garnet
    Revlon – Crush (just bitten kissable balm stain)
    Maybelline – Choco Cream (For the days when I want something dark on my eyes, and nude on my lips)
    And I think “Rapture” from Urban Decay would also be perfect for fall, but I don’t have it. buhuu

  18. My fall favourites would probably be Guerlain’s Habit Rouge, Clarins Red Wine (I don’t have it yet; I’m waiting to buy it in their next promotion) and Mac New York Apple and Capricious. I’ve also got Red Dwarf (Daphne Guinness, I think?) that I plan to trot out when the weather cools.

  19. I have so many that I love to use during the fall but if I had to pick one it would be occ lip tar in black dahlia really pretty color but drying on the lips Now I want urban decay venom its so pretty thanks for the post

    While plums & other vampy shades are great for Fall, I think nudes deserve a mention, as well. With the resurgence of the Smokey Eye, the deeper shades may be a bit much. I personally don’t have a favorite amongst either, but then I have far too many lip products to choose from, LOL. I do wear both equally, as well; it’s primarily based on what eye makeup I go with.

    • What are your beige picks? Top 3?

      • xamyx

        I have several faves, but I don’t know how many are still available (i.e., MAC Archetype, gorgeous color, crappy formula though, LOL). I was going through my lippies, and 3 top picks are: Rimmel #14, NYX Honey, and my absolute favorite is one from The Body Shop, #10 (I believe-there’s no shade name).

        The Body Shop #10 looks very, very similar to OCC Sebastian. I totally forgot about this one until now, LOL. It’s also the “lost” beauty product I “found” much later that I referenced in your question a few weeks back… I just stuck it in my box of “nudes”, as I haven’t been wearing lipstick at all these past few months (it’s been way too hot!).

  21. Tabitha

    I think MAC’s Rocker lipstick will be a highlight of my fall, it’s super flattering (even all my family members love it) definitely an HG shade for me!

  22. Buxom Runway…..mine! 😀

  23. I LOVE Venom. I am constantly surprised at how wearable it is – even at the office.

    I think I’m going to have to pick up Endless Drama – that looks like my kind of red!

  24. Lorrie

    The Burberry one is gorgeous. I’m just about to order Laura Mercier Merlot after your review. Too many choices!

  25. What a lovely coincidence … even I wanted u to ask this n here it is :)
    Last time when u posted this I quickly bought mac dark side :)
    Now I want venom badlyyyy

    I would go with

    Lancome 391 rouge in love …. what stunning shade it is dear …
    Guerlain gigolo …. my mentor fav :)
    Revlon cherries in the glow
    YSL forbidden burgundy
    N last but not the least

  26. odessa

    Can you recommend some colors for us dark skin girls? Thanks in advance 😉

  27. Esme

    My three fall favorites are YSL Rouge Pur Couture #8 (Belle de Rose), Revlon Plum Velour, and NYX Black Cherry.

  28. becca

    I generally wear nude lipsticks in the fall like YSL rouge volupte #2, mac creme cup, tom ford vanilla suede. They seem to work better with my complexion than berries and plums. I do have one lipstick I wear in the fall that is a berry-red color: Mac new york apple.

  29. Jessi

    I’ve been waiting all summer to pull my beloved MAC Strong Woman, Prince Noir and Runaway Red out again. This year, they’re going to be joined by Subverted, which is amazingly dramatic, and By Design (my sleeper hit nude from Indulge).

    Can you tell I love MAC lipsticks?? 😀

  30. I love berry-colored lipsticks. I want to try one this fall!

  31. Train Bleu has been on my wish list for some time now. Maybe this fall I’ll finally break down and get it. It’s so gorgeous

  32. Buxom Runaway looks tempting. I can’t pull of dramatic lips with my tiny mouth!

  33. 1. Mac Rebel
    2. Mac Heroine
    3. Cover Girl Cherry Truffle

    That´s all!

  34. MAC Rebel, MAC Diva, INGLOT 412

  35. Vanessa

    I’ve never seen train bleu before. Enchanting!
