When the season starts to shift from summer to fall, the first thing we do is refresh our closets. Why not our makeup, too? Few lip looks are as impactful and alluring as a bold red or pink, as it automatically brightens your skin and the rest of your face. (It also leaves a lasting impression in the eye of the beholder.) Practically speaking, too, it’s super-long-lasting––especially when it’s a matte formula, which provides extra grip and durability, making it longer wearing than other lip finishes.
Try: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipstick. This lightweight liquid matte formula delivers intense pigment two times as thin as a lipstick. Think the no-makeup feel of a stain combined with the opulent impact of a liquid lipstick. You’ll get a hit of hot colour that lasts all day long. Even better? The formula is non-drying, so you don’t have to keep applying lip balm for hydration.
Here, we’ve rounded up the top fall lipstick trends for 2019 and the best L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipstick shades to match them.
The hue: fire-engine red
How to wear red lipstick? Anytime, anywhere: A bright-red lip is a classic no matter what season it is. So, don’t toss your favourite red in your makeup drawer in favour of something more “seasonally appropriate.” This fall, anything goes! Reach for a racy red, and nail this striking look that never goes out of style.

The hue: oxblood
Nothing says “fall” better than burgundy (the colour and the wine!). Don’t be wary of a bold lip look: This vampy red-purple strikes the right balance between glam and go-everywhere.

The hue: burnt orange
When you think of iconic autumnal colours, burnt orange definitely tops the list. While orange lips are often saved for summer, this rustier tone hits all of fall’s high notes.
Try: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipstick in I Amaze.
The hue: pinky-nude
Bold tones are beautiful, but sometimes a simple look can be just as statement-making. There’s something about low-key that says “high-power,” no? Go barely-there with this soft taupe-pink for a your-lips-but-better look.
Try: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipstick in I Tease.
The hue: hot pink
Who says you have to wear a dark lip when the weather turns cold? One of the biggest lipstick trends this fall is to switch up your shade to shocking bright pink. Hot-pink lips feel fresh for fall because it’s so unexpected: We’re so used to reaching for reds and plums that an electric fuchsia feels new and fierce.

One of our biggest makeup tips for wearing fall’s bright and bold looks? Invest in the prep. Statement shades mean that all eyes will be on your lips, so you’ll need to ensure that they look their best. Start with a hydrating lip scrub, like L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub. Apply it using a gentle circular motion to exfoliate, and then clean it off with a warm, wet washcloth. Then, apply a lip conditioner for maximum moisture and nourishment.
Finally, application is key to achieving a bold-colour look. You need a precise lip line as it adds finesse and stops the colour from bleeding. Luckily, L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lipstick features a pointed precision applicator that shapes and lines lips with razor-sharp rigour. And there you have it: a perfectly painted pout.
