When autumn approaches, our makeup routine changes. Our foundation become more matte, liquid bronzer gets ditched and most notably, our autumn lipstick collection comes out to play. Because as much as we love summer's rotation of punchy corals and neon reds, nothing makes us feel more ready for the arrival of cold weather than a really great autumn shade.
This year, there are loads of cool autumn lipstick colours launching that we haven't really seen before. From YSL's holographic black to Fenty's new drop-dead shades of Stunna, lipstick brands are pulling out their power players this autumn. So whether you're game for trying something different or just looking for a new wine-toned shade, we've rounded up the best new autumn lipstick colours that probably aren't already lying around in your makeup bag.
Autumn Lipstick Colours
With 50% more pigments than Armani's traditional matte lipsticks, this deep cocoa brown is super long-lasting and comfortable on the lips.
Remember when we told you about the new MAC balm-to-matte lipsticks unveiled at fashion week? Well, they're now officially out and available to buy. Our favourite shade for autumn is this vibrant red.
This gorgeous mauve shade coats your lips in high-shine shimmer. Wear alone or layer on top of lipstick for intense colour payoff.
Meet your new favourite way to apply lipstick: with a creamy, glide-on crayon. This ultra-intense, vibrant red is the perfect autumn red for every skin tone.
It's hard to pick a favourite shade from Fenty's new Stunna Lip Paints. From pure, smooth black to their universal red, there's a shade for all. Our ultimate, though? It's got to be the chocolate brown Unveil.
Feeling daring? Say hello to your new power lip. YSL's Holo Black transforms in the light to give you a completely multitonal shade. Wear alone or layer on top of a deep red for the ultimate autumn hue.
Peanut butter lipstick? We're sold. The nourishing, creamy texture is just a bonus.
If pink is your usual go-to, Plumberry should be your autumn shade. It's a plum-toned pink with a sheen of creamy purple in the light. Plus, the Laura Mercier formula feels cushiony and weightless on the lips.
The ultimate oxblood brown, Majo looks great on both fair and darker skin tones—plus it makes your teeth look mega white.
Tom Ford knows good lipsticks. Wicked Ways is a gorgeous brownish brick red that lasts for hours, applies like a dream and looks gorgeous on everyone.
This moody plum shade looks great when it's blurred out around the edges of your lips or built up for a dramatic slick of colour. Plus the unique bullet tip makes it a dream to apply.
A true dark chocolate brown - this is like Bournville for your lips.
A reddish grape shade, Smashbox's Fig is perfect if you want that wine-stained effect to your lips. It has a slightly sheer texture, meaning you can blot it on and get a blurred, diffused French-girl finish.
Layer Everglades on top of your favourite lipstick to give it a grungy autumn feel.
These unique powder-puff lipsticks give your lips a completely matte effect, whilst somehow feeling nourishing on the lips. Puppy Love is not only the best shade of lipstick ever, but it's also the most glorious autumn brown.
