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? 

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

this is the perfect color. and train bleu is cult status.

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

Yes Andy! I love this look/photo, one of my favorite Pinterest finds Smiley Happy

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?

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?

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.

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

Thank you!

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?

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:

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

So after seeing so many people suggest it on here, I picked up Train Bleu in store today! Thank you!

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

No problem Smiley Wink It's a gorgeous, gorgeous lip color! No wonder so many of us love it. I'm sure you're gonna love it, too.

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

Do you know where this picture is from?  I see this on pinterest EVERYWHERE but there's never a proper to link to where it came from.

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

This work of art is created by makeup artist Liz Castellanos ( Makeup By Liz ). The girl in the photo is Brittany Brousseau. She's a model. I can PM you links to makeup artist's FB and Websta page, and the rest of the photo shoot on photographer's ( Solmaz Saberi ) Tumbler, if you want to. 

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

I found it!  Thanks!  So interesting to see the real story behind this ubiquitous picture.  It's all over pinterest!

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

What lyravega said! The makeup artist's website is makeupbyliz dot com and her instagram is also makeupbyliz.

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

Yeah. Just wanted to add that she has a website, as well. And a list of complete makeup used for this look!

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

I'd say this is from the same photo shoot... I read somewhere that the gorgeous lipstick color from the photo above was photoshopped, not real. I don't know if that's true, though. Maybe the photo below is changed. Who knows. Or maybe the makeup artist just felt like changing the colors in the middle of the shoot.

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

love it Kenny!

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

As mentioned before Tom Ford Bruised Plum and NARS Train Blu are also my cult fall classics. One that I always use during the fall is macs Rebel! I'm obsessed with it. The whole Limecrime Salem Velveteens are totally fall colors so you should check them out too. I think Violine Precieux would be great! I'm a little biased because I'm so in love with the Le Rouge formula.

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

My favorite fall combo ( asides from obvious Train Bleu + Shame Smiley Wink ) is MAC Heroine over MAC Currant lip pen. The combination is drop dead gorgeous! I'll try to take some pics tomorrow, and post here. 

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

My HG Lipstick for Fall is Tom Ford Matte in Crimson Noir.

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

It is a gorgeous red--not only for Fall but for any day you feel super confident. Smiley Happy

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

I love MAC's "Chili." I's a dark, warm, browny red. Perfect for fall.

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

my faves of this color genre, currently:

 

NARS velvet matte pencil train bleu (as seen below)

REVLON lustrous lipstick in black cherry 

MAC viva glam III (a dark brownish red, matte)

 

MAC has some great brown tones which i'm excited to get to know better. classics like their SPICE lip pencil come to mind.

 

a good affordable place to start with browns is NYX matte lip cream in london (only $6!)
