Summer may be almost over, but that's no reason to feel down in the dumps. As much as we love margaritas by the pool and weekend BBQs, there are plenty of reasons to be excited for fall: pumpkin-flavored everything, the return of our favorite television shows, and ... gorgeous new lipstick shades. We're so ready to swap out our hot pink lipsticks for these seasonally appropriate and flattering hues.
Keep scrolling to see the four fall lip shades you need to try.
Was there ever a more perfect lip color to make the transition from summer to fall easy? Emma Stone's rosy lip at the Venice Film Festival looked phenomenal with her hunter green gown. Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm ($10) in Whimsical on the starlet to create a soft, toned-down look that's perfect for every day as well.
Merlot shades are always a welcome addition to our fall lipstick collection—just a few precise swipes give you an edgy yet polished look. And while we'll never say no to a classic red lip, this vampy hue is the perfect way to update it for fall.

If you don't want to go full-on vamp with your lip color, try an on-trend berry shade like Cameron Diaz's. No matter the finish you choose (stain, gloss, or lipstick), it’s a foolproof hue for fall.
Fall's take on violet is richer and deeper than summer's brighter-than-bright hues. Purple may look a little scary in the tube, but it's easier than you think to pull off. Keep skin glowing with a touch of highlighter, and keep your eye makeup minimal so everyone can focus on your gorgeous pout.
