Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous. 

 

I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost). 

 

Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick. 

 

I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet Smiley Sad has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?

Love this! I like to wear similar look ( it actually looks quite the same ) - Train Bleu all over, with a bit of Urban Decay's Shame on top/in the middle. Gorgeous! 

 

This is Train Bleu:

How would you use these colours? Line the lip first then the lipstick? what about the shiny sections on her bottom lip?

Re: Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

i believe the 'shiny bit' at the bottom of her lip is more lighting than lipstick application. but i suspect tom ford black orchid was applied in the middle while nars train bleu was all over. train blue is on the purpler side and black orchid lighter and redder. beautiful combination.

Going to borrow a friend's Train Blue to try this look out!

Re: Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

I have been trying to figure out this lip color for probably over a year now!!

Re: Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

Andy, once you told me what shade this was, I had to buy it. It's gorgeous!

Re: Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

Unfortunately, Black Orchid is discontinued. They replaced it with Bruised Plum, which is a great colour as well. I don't have train blue but may have to order it just to try this look!

Black Orchid is VERY hard to find. I think it's still out there, but i'm not sure.

Try Make Up Forever Rouge Intense #48 in Satin Blackcurrant. I have this and absolutely love it! It's a deep plummy burgundy, and it's surprisingly very wearable.

Is truffle a wine color? I thought it was supposed to be brown-ish.

Re: Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?

Yeah I agree that it's a wine, definitely not a dark brown.  Cognac is the brownest of their new collection.

Yes, Truffle is a wine colour. It looks brown on Sephora's product page, but it's definitely far from brown. I have Truffle on in my avatar Smiley Happy
