My top 10 lipsticks for fall

Fall is here, fall is here! Yes, I know, it's been over a month according to the calendar, but here in San Diego we're just starting to have more cool days than blazing hot days... So I finally went on an archaeological mission to dig my favorite fall lipsticks out of my stash (I need to show you my lippie drawer one day. Or maybe not...). 

I selected a few that I really, really love in autumnal hues, some are pricey little luxuries but most are affordable. They're mainly oldies although a couple are recent additions to my collection. Let's take a look! 




My top 10 lipsticks for fall: a selection of trendy, rich hues for the season

1- MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour in Stuck On You ($25): my very first long-lasting lip color, and I still believe it's one of the best! To my horror, the tube broke just after I opened it to swatch this shade... Sadness! :( Anyways, this is a really beautiful, bold but wearable color, a brownish red with fine golden shimmer. 

2- Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Fig ($21): I reviewed that gorgeous creamy plum a little while ago, and it's perfect for a purple fall look. 

3- Kiko Velvet Mat Satin Lipstick in 610 Rosy Brown ($9): one of my favorite matte formulas of all times (it's more of a semi-matte hence the Satin) in a brownish nude shade. Not too light so it doesn't turn me into a zombie, but neutral enough to pair with anything. Such a great formula at this price is really a steal!  

4- Guerlain Rouge G in Galante ($53): yeah the price hurts, but it's a really great lipstick, so put it on your list for Santa. I realized that Galante, a warm rosy plum, has been discontinued, but there are similar shades in the range. 

5- Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in Hope ($24): an easy, every day matte pink that's on the warmer side. Yeah I still dislike the minty flavor but this Lip Tint is a lot better than the Energy Noir I just reviewed... 

6- Clinique Chubby Stick in Fuller Fig ($17): I'm a big fan of the original Chubby Stick formula for its comfort, shiny finish and moderately saturated colors. Fuller Fig is a warm muted plum with brown undertones that whispers "let's go for a walk in the woods, and then we'll have hot cocoa with cinnamon!" in my ear. 

7- Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Précieux: this special edition of the cult lipstick has a suede covered tube flocked with multi-dimensional gold scales, instead of the classic black leather. Violine Précieux is also gone (dang it! Was still available last time I checked!), but if you want the same packaging, you can get it in Rose Précieux ($36). Too bad because this rosy berry is a killer! Based on Temptalia Dupe List, Nars Vivien ($32) should be very similar. 

8- Lancôme Color Design Matte Lip Crayon in Only Wine Will Tell ($24): this is a new product launched for fall, and as far as I know it's joining the permanent line. I really, really love how user-friendly this soft matte lipstick is! Read my full review for all details. The bordeaux color is something I could wear year-round but it's particularly on trend at this time of year. 

9- Kiko Pencil Lip Gloss in 12 Wine Red ($6): this creamy gloss pencil melts on the skin and glides well, providing great coverage in one swipe, plus it's really affordable. I have it in a few shades, including this deep rosy mauve that has tiny blue shimmer (it's not really visible on the lips but increases the shine). 

10- Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita ($26): yep, another lip pencil! You'll have noticed by now that I'm not really into gloss for the cooler season, and lip crayons are a great alternative to classic lipstick when I want something easy and quick! Anyways, Dolce Vita is a soft, non-drying matte in a very warm deep peachy rose with medium pigmentation. It's really a nude color on me, and it's a good everyday shade for any occasion.
