Must-Have Lip Colors For Autumn/Winter

Monday, February 7, 2022

best autumn winter lip products

Lipstick is one of the most versatile beauty products and has the power to transform any makeup look. A single swipe of your favorite shade can revive a tired complexion or stand beautifully on its own. Interestingly, specific tones have become synonymous with certain seasons throughout the year. Luxurious red tones are often opted for during the winter holidays whereas poppy pinks and corals are reserved for the warmer months of the year. With a dense catalog of lip colors currently offered on the market, what lipstick hues is one to use during autumn/winter? While the choices may seem overwhelming, I've minimized the confusion by refining the lot and landed on six must-have lip products both new and tried and true that need to be in your autumn/winter lip wardrobe. Read on to discover these irresistible and luxurious shades for picture-perfect seasonal lips. 

MERIT // Shade Sick  Tinted Lip Oil (Cara Cara)
If you're in the market for deliciously hydrating and color-packed lip product which enhances your pout, look no further than MERIT Beauty's Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil. This highly coveted, pocket-sized wonder is formulated with grapeseed and jojoba oil which work to nourish and soften lips while providing the perfect wash of conditioning color. The shade Cara Cara is a lovely autumnal pop which not only looks great swiped on bare lips but pairs wonderfully over a similar toned lip liner. 

A lovely muted rose tone, YSL Tatouage Liquid lip in 16-Nude Emblem offers a pigmented applicated without the weight or tackiness of a traditional liquid lipstick. It's unique formula feels incredibly light on the lips and dries down to a rich matte finish. For this crisp autumn/winter season, 16-Nude Emblem is the perfect pink tone to sport as it provides a chic pop of seasonally appropriate color. Unlike the poppy pinks known to the warmer months, this terracotta toned pink creates an eye-catching look which complements the natural warm and fiery foliage hues signature to this time of year. 

MAC COSMETICS // Powder Kiss Liquid Lipstick (Sorry Not Sorry)
Perhaps the best and my most reached for lip color this time of year, MAC Cosmetics Powder Kiss Liquid Lipstick in Sorry Not Sorry is a flattering pumpkin orange tone which not only wears beautifully with a variety of warm-toned eye looks but provides a long-lasting, smear-proof finish. The seasonal punctuated pop offered by this mask-approved lippie makes it a standout shade you'll want to wear well into winter. 

Lisa Eldridge // Lip Velvet (Cinnabar) 
An authority in the beauty industry, Lisa Eldridge has created an incredible lipstick range which is wildly loved by both beauty fans and seasoned professionals. Her most recent Lip Velvet launch includes a shade named Cinnabar, a beautifully spiced crimson ideal for autumn and the chilly months ahead. While the color itself is stunning, the formula is a dreamy matte which glides onto the lips leaving behind a richly pigmented, non-drying swipe of color. 

Charlotte Tilbury // Matte Revolution (Catwalking)
Tilbury's lipsticks are some of the best I've used in recent years and her beautiful range includes an array of ultra-flattering lip colors in lovely formulations. Some of her best tones fall in the nudes category including Catwalking, a rich neutral matte lip fitting for the cooler months. A modern peachy nude with soft spicy undertones, this elegant lipstick offers a sleek finish to your A/W makeup looks without looking too summery.
