Best Lip Products to Get Fall's Hottest Looks
We all know fall is when most of us begin to experiment with darker colors on our lips.
This season is no different, and we found that many fashion designers presenting their Fall 2013 collections went with matte, glossy reds and berry-stained lips for this season's looks.

We also saw quite a few designers go the neutral route, and their models wore nude, flesh-toned lip colors.

We dug through the latest fall cosmetics collections to bring you our favorite products for each trendy look:
Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylos, $30
This collection of six nude lip crayons delivers in a big way. The colors range from pinkish nude to a beige/mauve-toned nude, making it great for all skin tones. The crayon is extremely pigmented and full-coverage — only one or two swipes for the top and bottom lip will give you a great satin finish. The consistency is creamy, and not drying. The retractable twist-up stylo has a pointed top, which made my application very precise.
M.A.C Antonio Lopez 3 Lips: Nude, $27.50
This lipstick compact is perfect for traveling because it has three different shades of nude in one package — a pinkish tone, coral tone, and mauve tone. It also comes with a travel-sized lip brush inside the compact, which I found to be super convenient when on the go. What makes this palette really special is that each of the nude shades has a different finish. The pinkish nude is an amplified finish, so has medium-to-high pigmentation. The coral tone is a satin finish, so it had good color payoff and left my lips with a nice sheen. The mauve nude is a glaze finish, so it was very sheer, but glossy and great for tinting my lips. So, depending on the look you are going for, it offers three completely different kinds of nude lipsticks in one petite package.
Too Faced Cosmetics Lip Injection Color Bomb!: Eastwood Red, $21
Eastwood Red, inspired by Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint), is a rich, fiery red. The product applies a nice satin stain on the lips, and it will not budge after application. An added bonus is that it’s made with a unique lip plumping, blood vessel-dilating technology. This is what gives this product that extra oomph when it comes to plumping lips. There is a subtle, warm, tingling sensation that lasts about two minutes. Once the warming sensation subsides, you’ll notice your lips have a subtle plump that looks very natural.
M.A.C. Retro Matte Lipstick: Relentlessly Red, $15
The Retro Matte line by M.A.C. is a collection of extremely pigmented lipsticks. Relentlessly Red is a super vibrant red that is so beautiful to wear. once you apply it, the color stays on all day and night. A must have red color for every girl’s red lipstick collection.
Bobbi Brown Berry Lip Color, $25
This is the perfect berry shade for the fall. It glides on to your lips so smoothly and leaves a beautiful raspberry color with a luminous finish. The consistency was creamy and moisturizing without drying my lips out. It stays on for a good four to five hours, and I have literally not stopped wearing this lipstick because it complements any eye look, from neutral to bold.
YSL Rouge Pur Couture: 53 Beige Promenade, $34
This YSL lipstick was very moisturizing and the color lasted all day. It is very pigmented and has a luxurious feel once applied. You’re getting a high-end treat that is well worth the price.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipsticks: 738 Royal Plum, $26
This is a great, wearable, dark plum color for the lips. It is one of the most hydrating lipsticks that I have tried this fall. It doesn’t look heavy on the lips because it has a nice shine to it when worn. Since it’s so moisturizing, it’s great to have on hand for days when your lips feel dry in the colder weather.
Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer: Electric Wine, $25
I have yet to find a lip-gloss that has as much color pay-off as this one. It is essentially a liquid lipstick with an extremely vibrant finish. The shade, Electric Wine, looks so beautiful on the lips, and really gives it that glossy runway look. It is not necessary to apply this on top of a lipstick because it can stand on its own. It applies quite thickly, so be sure not to load up the wand with too much product. A little goes a long way!
