Four Dark Lipstick Shades for Fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year to wear lipstick! No matter what you wear (hot pink or black) it looks amazing!

I have actually never tried black lipstick, but some of the shades are wear are pretty close!

I love dark reds, purples, oxblood, etc colors for Fall and you can find them all at Nordstrom! Did you see my latest ‘Pink Shades for Fall‘ post? Nordstrom just has the best variety!!

Nordstrom carries all of my favorite lipstick brands (NARS, Clinique, Mac, Chanel) so I really don’t need to go anywhere else!

These are my favorite four dark lipstick shades for Fall, and all of the outfits in these photos are from Nordstrom as well! Just click the links below each photo to shop or pair similar items you already have with these lipstick shades!


Four Dark Lipstick Shades for Fall:

The Miller Affect wearing Janet by NARS Lipstick

1. Janet. Janet is a NARS lipstick very similar to Mac’s rebel. I think Janet is just a little lighter and is more a mix of dark purple and hot pink. I love the purple look for Fall and I get so many compliments on this shade! As mentioned previously, NARS is the most moisturized lipstick I have tried!


The Miller Affect wearing Diva lipstick from Mac

2. Bette. Bette is my favorite dark oxblood shade. The more you put on, the darker it gets. This is just with one layer. It is also from NARS (can you tell NARS is my favorite?) Many dark shades clump up on your lips and end up looking horrible. With NARS you never have that problem. It goes on so smoothly so you always have all over coverage. I think Bette also has a little dark red it in too so it looks so pretty in the sunlight!

3. Perfect Score. Perfect Score is from Mac and is hands down the BEST red shade for Fall. I love bright reds, but having a dark red in the Fall is so important. It looks gorgeous with all of my ‘going out’ outfits and I definitely love wearing it at certain black tie events. Classy and classic, it looks great on everyone!

4. Diva. To be honest, this is the first time I tried Diva. Since this shoot, I basically wear it every other day. I walked to the Mac counter at Nordstrom and asked what their most popular shade for Fall was and they all said it was Diva. I can see why. It is basically a mix of all three shades above! It is the perfect burgundy color, not too bright and not too dark. It is great for everyday wear! Definitely a color I will be wearing for years to come!

    I do love the dark colors….more on you than me because I have too many lines (wrinkles) around my lips and the dark shades bleed into those craters (lol)
