My Favorite Lip Colors

Recently I posted an Instagram picture of one of my fall lip glosses and someone commented asking me to post my favorites.. so here I am!

I personally look best in Fall colors, so as you can see, I have a number of fall lip colors (where in the spring and summer I only have two!)

Also, you'll notice I don't spend a lot of money on lipsticks and lip glosses and usually just pick them up at Target. The truth is I'm not a huge lipstick/lip gloss person.. usually I go without but will put something on before a meeting.

This lip balm adds just a hint of color and feels just like a regular lip balm (it's really moisturizing). A great "every day" staple. I especially like putting this on if I don't have much make up on, because it's pretty sheer and natural looking. 

Sonia Kashuk Hydrating Lip Balm in Plum 07
Honest, I don't know if they still make this. I bought it from Target last year (I think) and it's one of my favorites. It's very conditioning and the color is a perfect, true plum (but not too dark).

I have loved Cover Girl Lipslicks since high school! They are super cheap and are just plain great. This looks more like a lipstick (especially because it has some shimmer), but feels more like a lip balm. 

I just recently purchased this one and I had high hopes for it. I was hoping for a sheer plum color, but it looks a little more red than plum. BUT it's still a great color and a little more "fun" than the others. (I do have to note, these LeGloss lip glosses are my FAVORITE lip glosses out there.. the color Watermelon Crush is my go-to summer color)

This is another recent purchase. I'm a big fan of these lip butters. They are soft and last a long time. This is a good color, but again I would have liked it to be a bit more "plum". But it is very pretty and somewhat dark. 

This is the most expensive one of the lot (I think I got it at Sephora). It's the darkest of the bunch, and since it's a lip stain it lasts a LONG time! Great for going out at night. I really love the color and how matte it is, but it does get dry after a while.

And it's it! Please do add your favorite plum or fall colors if you have one!  :)


  1. I love similar colors (fall is the best time of year for me, color-wise). Have you tried Sugar Lip Treatment in Plum by Fresh? It's my favorite. SO creamy! I buy it at Sephora.

  2. Burts Bees are my favorites too!

  3. Loreal Color Riche BALM in Pink Satin is my favorite hands down. It's not plum (it's the "your lips but better" look) but it's universally flattering.

    I wore it on my blog check it out!

    Such pretty fall colors! Do you change it up for spring and summer?

  5. Love these colors! When you get my age, you wear color more. when you are young you can get away without any! These are great ones!

  6. Great colors! I've been looking for a new shade and I think I may have just found it! Thanks for the post!

  7. A little lip gloss tip courtesy of the fabulous Beyonce. I read that she always applies Aquafor to give her lips a natural gloss. I've been doing it over lip glosses and it makes the gloss stay on longer! (And is good for lip aging.) Thanks for the post! It inspired me to go out and get fall colors.
