It’s that time of the year! While summer screams fun and bright lips, Fall is the season to sport dark and vampy lips. Here are 5 shades to flaunt this season…
This isn’t your typical classic red. It is a deep dark red with a hint of brown undertones that has a matte finish. It does fade like most lipstick but leaves a stain behind, and same as most MAC lipsticks, it has a vanilla scent.
When I heard that Laura is coming out with matte lipsticks, my heart skipped a beat! It claims to have a revolutionary MOISTURIZING matte finish. Not entirely true. For me, it is bordering a matte and a satin finish which makes it very comfortable on the lips. An Affair is a deep plum colour. I love how creamy these are with full pigmentation in just one swipe.
Not to be confused with their original Revolution Lipsticks, this one comes in a MATTE finish. After Dark is described as a medium-dark berry pink. It is opaque and long-lasting. What I adore about this shade is that it has fine iridescent fuchsia pearls that makes it look somewhat “metallic”. This shade is similar to MAC Fashion Revival ($16) without the unique pearls.

One of the most sought after shades in the Soft Matte line. It has a mousse-like texture and dries into a true matte within a few minutes. Copenhagen is a gorgeous rich plum. You may need to apply a second layer to achieve your desired colour. It’s not heavy on the lips, affordable, and they smell like cupcakes!
Described as an elegant burgundy. Though it looks deep red in the tube, on my skintone, it appears more of a brown. The formula is somehow similar to the NYX Soft Mattes except they don’t dry entirely matte. They are opaque and they smell like coconut.
