5 Lipstick Shades That Are Trending This Year
Expand your repertoire to include the season's hottest lip shades
If summer is for lovers, then fall is for romantics. It’s the perfect time of year for harvesting those seeds of summer love, or for simply sipping your favourite latte sitting in a cozy cafe. No matter how you’re embracing this change, one thing’s for sure, fall is all about depth and warmth. Ok, I'm not suggesting you can’t continue wearing your hot pink lipstick into fall, if that’s your thing (you do your thing, girl!). But I am suggesting it’s the perfect time to revamp your beauty routine and expand your repertoire to include the season’s hottest lip shades. Think about it...what’s better than taking a brisk walk in your fur-lined coat with a black cherry lippie or a passionate purple pout?
Vivid Violet & Purple Passion Lips
For a fall approved pop of color a vivid purple is a fun color to throw into the mix. Color is great, but it's a lot like corn; it's more exciting when it pops! To make this shade work keep the rest of your makeup simple - this will give a color-blocking effect, and will keep your lips the focal point.
Here are some of my favourites from the Merle Norman collection....you can't beat Lip Glaze in Berry Jubilee! Lip Glaze is a little bit of gloss + a little bit of lipstick = a whole lot of glamour! This botanical-infused lipstick in a gel formula provides shiny, sheer color with a non-tacky, lightweight feel.
Black Cherry & Burgundy Lips
THE lipstick shade of all lipstick shades...a deep, dark, burgundy cherry is an essential for fall. If you're going to wear one thing this season make it this bold lippie! This lip is just like your friend that stands out anywhere, yet simultaneously fits in everywhere. Probably because she's spirited and down for almost anything.
Try one of these stunning shades from the Merle Norman collection....these dual-function wood-clenched lip pencils are one versatile product, with 2/3 lip color and 1/3 lipliner. Available in beautiful coordinating shades, it provides full coverage and long-wearing color in a semi-matte finish. Perfect for creating an ombre lip! Or for a super matte finish use the liner side alone.
Scarlet Red Lips
Red lips are classic year round...but come fall, the redder the better! Make it matte or gloss it up...just go for a rich, striking red that brings all the focus to your lips, smile & smirk. And be ready for the influx of compliments!
To keep your lipstick in place and prevent feathering or bleeding line lips with a clear, wax lipliner before applying your scarlet lip.
These are my top picks for the reddest of reds, from the Merle Norman collection....try the newest addition, the Kiss & Hug Lip Glosses! The Ultra luxe lip gloss kisses lips with stunning full-on color and mirror-like shine. Lightweight formula hugs lips with sensational moisture. Lipstick-bullet-shaped applicator follows lips’ every curve and delivers rich, opaque color impact in a single swipe.
Coffee Lips & Nude Pouts
Unfortunately not real coffee...but coffee color lips and nudes add just the right amount of warmth and dimension to pair with your cozy fall knits and messy topknot. Whether it’s a coffee cup or something sweeter, you’ll be sure to leave your mark on this season.
I'm in love with so many of our coffees & nudes from the Merle Norman collection it's hard to pick just one or two....try the Liquid Lipcolor for the perfect lippie! This revolutionary hybrid formula has the full color pigment of a lipstick, but glides on like a gloss. The ultra-plush applicator deposits just the right amount of smooth, stay-true color onto lips. Its unique whipped texture makes the product easy to apply and a multi-hydration technology system of DL Plum Oil (French), which comes only from plums grown in the South-West of France, Argan Oil and Meadowestolide makes it very comfortable to wear. It also includes a lip-plumping ingredient that helps lips appear smoother (without the usual tingling feel). You’ll love the way your lips look and feel for hours!
Vamp It Up With A Vampy Lip
The perfect way to add a bit of polish to your look...vampy lips scream fall chic. Don't be shy...a bold lippie will make you the sophisticate in a matter of seconds!
For your best vampy lip try one of these deep, dark shades from the Merle Norman collection....you won't get much more vampy than Cocoplum in our Age Defying Lipcolor. Available in matte and shimmer shades, this smoothing lip color with our exclusive age-defying complex increases moisture retention and helps diminish the appearance of fine lines while providing full color coverage.
