Whenever September rolls around, we love to start trying out new fall lip colors. The changing season is the perfect time to test out that deep maroon or burnt orange shade you’ve had your eye on. Ready to take it up another notch? Opt for an on-trend metallic shade in gold or silver when shopping for your fall lipstick picks.
Fall lipsticks are also a great way to play around with color and change up your look without dumping tons of cash on a new wardrobe or accessories. My best advice when it comes to trying out lipstick colors for fall (or any time of the year) is “don’t knock it until you try it!” That shade that looks crazy in the tube might just be the perfect complement to your skin tone once it’s applied. So be bold and step into the new season with 21 of the best fall lipstick colors!
