The Best Red Lipsticks for Fall

Aaahhh Fall. The return of cozy knits, hot chocolate, and deep sultry makeup shades! I rarely wear makeup during the summer, so I eagerly anticipate the cooler temps of Fall and Winter that are perfect for stay-put-all-day makeup looks! Now that it’s time to put red lipstick back into my rotation, I have been cataloging all of my go to brands and shades, and thought I’d share them with my fellow Socialites! Drop your favorite red lipstick shade in the comments below so I can go test it out! ??

1. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Red Carpet Red. I love everything Charlotte Tilbury, and this gorgeous, rich red is no exception!

2. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in shade Rouge in Danger. YSL oil-in-stick lipsticks will always be my fave, because they are sooo moisturizing. The shades are slightly sheer due to the oil content, but they are buildable.  This would be a great choice for someone new to red lipstick shades, as the color is not as strongly pigmented!

3. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in shade Fiery. I love Stila; their lipliners can’t be beat! But I also adore this berry hued red, that works great on all skin tones!

3. NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipstick in shade Lucy. NYX really makes great products at a reasonable price point! This shade is your basic red, but it’s feather/bleed resistant, and quite moisturizing!

  4. Wow, these colors are amazing! Loving the red lip for Fall, but lately have been leaning towards a darker red too which I am obsessed with. The Aria color from Stila has been my go-to! Def going to have to try these next time I’m at Sephora!

  5. The CT and NARS are great shades for my complexion. I have about 3 red lipsticks already but…. I mean you know…. one more won’t hurt. Lol

  6. I love the shade Mac red it is my favourite red. I might start digging out my red lippies for the autumn months, thanks for the inspiration

  7. i use MAC ruby woo but there are a couple in here i need to try!!

  8. Those are great picks. A bold red lip can be such a mood booster! I love the first choice, and the slight berry hue of the stila one.
