Fall is upon us! Okay, fall isn’t upon me, seeing as how I live in LA and it is literally 100 degrees here today (what the actual f***?). The heat here isn’t stopping me from pulling out my vampier, more fall-appropriate lippies, though. Here are 6 of my favorite affordable lip products for you to try this fall!
The drugstore is hopping on that liquid lip train, and I am so here for it. Maybelline came out with their SuperStay Matte Ink Lip Color a few months ago. The Super Stay Matte Ink formula never fully dries down, so be mindful of that. The shape of the applicator is perfect for getting a precise, crisp application. The colors are vibrant and opaque – the color, Voyager, is a gorgeous deep burgundy color that screams fall.
Another drugstore liquid lipstick that has recently won my heart is the Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick range from L’Oreal. The applicator on these is really similar to the applicator on the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink lipsticks – it has the same pointed tip that allows for a precise application, which is a plus. The shade, Shakedown, is gorgeous for fall. It’s a reddish brown shade, with a hint of plum. It’s a unique color in my collection, and I think it would be flattering on any skintone. Another color to try from this line is Plum Bum, a cooler-toned plum shade.
What do you know, yet another liquid lipstick. SUE ME. The Liquid Catsuit liquid lipsticks from Wet N Wild are the most drying of the three I’ve mentioned here – that being said, it’s nothing too terrible or uncomfortable, I would just suggest a good exfoliating sesh beforehand. The shade Berry Recognize is a beautiful berry (duh), aubergine shade. If you don’t want to completely deep and vampy but want something bolder than a nude, this would be a great option for you. Another one of my favorite shades is Give Me Mocha – it’s the perfect everyday fall shade for me (I wear it a ton on my Instagram, so follow me!
In addition to the Liquid Catsuit Liquid Lipsticks, Wet N Wild makes some great traditional lipsticks as well. Their MegaLast lipsticks are a total steal at $2.49 (though check your local drugstores from coupons/sales) and are fantastic quality. The shade, Sugar Plum Fairy, is a really beautiful berry shade. It’s a nearly identical dupe to MAC lipstick in Rebel color-wise. Formula-wise, this Wet N Wild lipstick is more matte whereas MAC Rebel has more of a satin finish. Both, perfect for fall. Another color to check out from this line is Cinnamon Spice – a gorgeous, reddish brown (my fave fave fave color for fall).
5. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Notion ($6.00)
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip in Notion. It is the perfect deep, vampy red shade with a touch of raspberry. This is a true matte liquid lipstick, so these can be a bit drying, but as I mentioned earlier, just exfoliate them lips first and you’ll be all good. If Notion isn’t your cup of tea, Colourpop has a massive color selection so you’ll definitely find a shade for you!
Oh, Milani Teddy Bare, I am so thankful to have found you. The Milani Color Statement Lipsticks are so comfortable on the lips. They are formulated with vitamins A and C and are super nourishing. Teddy Bare is a beautiful brown-toned nude that would complement any skin tone. On lighter skin tones it’s definitely going to be more of a medium-toned, warm brown shade, and on deeper skin tones it’s going to be the perfect nude. Also, it smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher, sooooooo…A+.
