Nothing signals the change of seasons more than switching out lipsticks. You can go from the pinks of spring, the corals of summer to bordeaux for fall. The dark lip is a strong trend this season–here are 7 of the best bordeaux lipsticks to help you wear it beautifully…
What color exactly is bordeaux? Somewhere in the middle of red and wine lies bordeaux. That’s why the seven bordeaux lipsticks have a range of shades. No matter your skin tone, you’ll be able to find a color that works. And if you’re worried that the color is too intense for your comfort zone, apply, then blot off and wear as a stain. My top seven bordeaux lipsticks for fall include (swatched in order of listing):
CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Matte in La Desiree – From the Nuit Infinie De CHANEL Holiday Collection, this lipstick has excellent pigmentation and a semi-matte finish.
Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses – possibly the best example of a bordeaux lipstick, the color is true and the finish slightly glossy. Love this one!
COVERGIRL Lip Perfection in Euphoria – creamy finish, long-lasting and feels great on. The picture makes it look much more pink than it really is. Formulated with silk protein to keeps lips moisturized and help improve their appearance over time.
Senna Cream Lipstick in Ruby – another cream finish with great color payoff (Fall Collection review here) and rich color. This lipstick has good wear without being dry on the lips.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame – huge color payoff; long-lasting, creamy, excellent lipstick. You really need to try these lipsticks to believe how amazing they are. One of my favorite formulas of lipsticks that I’ve tried recently.
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Lush Life – I love this color; rich and creamy without being vampy and wonderful wear. This is a lightweight formula with a mineral complex in it to keep lips moisturized.
