Lipstick Colors: 8 Shades You Should Try This Season

Whether you’re running out the door with no time to put on an entire face of makeup or you’re getting prepped for a huge event, lipstick can make all the difference. Paired with no makeup whatsoever, red lipstick can give you a cool, French girl vibe; finishing an entire face of makeup with a nude lip brings everything together in a polished way. In short, you should be wearing lipstick whatever you’re doing.

If you’re already on your lipstick game day in and day out, it might be time to switch up your color choices. For those girls who are hesitant to try in the first place, you need to know your options. Whichever category you fall into, we’ve found a lipstick color (or eight) that will work for you, inspired by none other than the runway. Take a look at some of our favorite lipstick colors above!

Give yourself a completely new look with these gorgeous lipstick colors!


Matte Red: If you’re thinking of trying a matte lip but you don’t quite want to commit to it yet, use a lipstick you already trust and top it with loose pigment to give it a matte finish. At Altuzarra, […]


Pale Pink: At Carolina Herrera, models’ lips were given a pale wash of pink color to balance out the Twiggy-inspired lashes. To get this look, try MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Saint Germain.


Sunbaked Brick: J Mendel’s look is all about the sporty, glamorous girl, so a glossy brick color is just the perfect choice. For this lip, try Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Sunbaked or Lip Butter in […]


Metallic Purple: We spotted this look at Marchesa, where Revlon makeup artist Gucci Westman mixed colors for the perfect metallic purple lip. For this color, mix Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Adore with […]


Coral Lips: At Christian Siriano, the lips were just coral enough for the beach but just pink enough for a date, which means you can basically take this color from day to night. To get the look, apply Hourglass Cosmetics Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse with your finger for a more natural look.


Bright Orange: This color isn’t for everyone, but if you’re going to wear orange lipstick, we belive in going all out. At DKNY, girls were given bright orange lips and the rest of the makeup was kept […]


Almost Red: We loved the lip color at Marissa Webb because it’s almost red, but in the right light it could be more pink or more orange, so it’s great for most skin tones. For this lip, use Bobbi Brown […]


Satin Wine: Our favorite part about the look at Helmut Lang is the fact that this color will never, ever go out of style. Use NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Golshan to get this lip at home.
