This fall, we’re lusting after deeper shades of lipstick, from burgundy and bordeaux to darker version of traditional pink. These intensely pigmented colors are universally flattering and can be paired with everything from a cocktail dress to your studded leather jacket. Application can easily get messy, so be sure to use a primer (this one is only $3!) and lip brush for precise results. Ahead is every shade you could possibly want this coming fall — from your favorite high-end designer offerings to some unexpectedly awesome drugstore standouts.
