Pucker Up: Five Fierce Dark Lipstick Shades for a Glamorous Fall

By   | 

Kiss summer goodbye and pucker up this fall season with dark lipstick shades that will definitely make a statement. Dark lipstick shades do wonders for your face as they accentuate your lips and brighten up your smile. Unlike nude lipstick shades that give off a natural look, dark lipstick shades makes a bold statement and, not to mention, make your lips more kissable! So, what are you waiting for? Check out these five dark lipstick shades that are sure to turn heads and land you some sweet kisses as the leaves fall.


Red Alert!

Red is definitely the color of love; it makes your lips pop out and naturally brightens up those pearly whites. Dark red lipstick shades in matte formulas will glamorize a little back dress when you're out on a hot date. Try Make up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense - Rebellious Red $20 available at Sephora.


Blackberry is the New Black 

Blackberry cell phones might be losing their appeal, but blackberry shades are trending this fall! So for all you lipstick lovers who always wanted to try black lipstick shades, you should definitely give blackberry a try with a pair of jeans, boots, and a jacket. Or for an evening look, try Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick  - Black Orchid $0.99 (Yes it's really $1, so you won't burn a hole a pocket for trying it). But if you really want to dive right into the blackberry world and want a lustrous and innovative blackberry shade lipstick, Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick - Black Cherry is $21 at Sephora. 


Dark Wine is So Fine

You've heard the saying that a little red wine does wonders for your health. So why not try a little dark wine on your lips to improve your overall style? I love wearing wine shades in the fall because it gives your face an earthy tone when you pair it with deep and warm colors in your wardrobe such as brown, teal, black, blue, and grey. So why not give Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color - Divine Wine $6.74 at Drugstore.com a try?


Love Deep Purple 

Purple is so 'in' this fall season that celebrities like Rihanna and Katy Perry have been seen sporting it on their lips while out and about. Purple sets the mood and definitely turns a lot of heads when worn in any outfit. You can totally glam up a casual look of jeans and a jacket with a deep purple shade. Try Make Up For Ever Rough Artist Intense - Pearly Dark Violet $20 at Sephora.


Plumping Plum 

Plum lipstick shades suit warmer skin tones and similar to wine colored shades, plum shades go with every look! My favorite look is a grey cardigan with a black skirt paired with Marc Jacobs Beauty - Intense Plum $30 at Sephora. Wearing plum lipstick shades is also similar to red lipstick in that it naturally brightens your smile.
