As if we really needed another excuse to spend money at Sephora and our local beauty supply store, summer is officially over and it’s time to revamp that lipstick collection. Pucker up!! From a classic, vampy dark red to some surprising new trends, here’s your 2018 guide to the perfect pout this fall.

Ruby Kisses Forever Matte Liquid Lipstick – Tippy Toe 

With brown and mauve undertones, this color is the perfect soft pink for an everyday look, and at $1.99, a steal too. Living up to its name, we found that it stayed put most of the day with very little transferring. Line your lips with a dark brown liner before applying to really make this lipstick pop.

Benefit GogoTint Cheek and Lip Stain – Bright Cherry 

The Korean beauty trend of lightly stained cheeks and lips has finally made its debut stateside. This two-in-one combo promises to be smudge proof and long wearing, while giving you that “I woke up like this” look. Pair it with winged liner and mascara, and you’ve got the perfect trendy look with minimal effort.

Black Radiance Brilliant Effects Lip Gloss – Love Sick

If Fenty Beauty lip luminzers are out of your budget, here’s an affordable alternative. Black Radiance’s glosses are not only moisturizing but also non-sticky which is always a plus. It has just the right amount of glitter to make you stand out, and yet, subtle enough to wear on a daily basis. With just a hint of color, it’s a great accessory for those who shy away from lipstick.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip – Arriba

Want to drink coffee at 10 but got a hot date at 6? No worries! Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip is not coming off until you’re ready for it to come off. Apply this once at the beginning of the day, and you’re set; there’s no need to reapply. This classic dark red not only looks great with anything but will make your pout particularly noticeable during the holiday season.

NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream – Transylvania

We stan a dark burgundy lip! This color has long been a makeup must-have which is why we’ve included it on our list. This creamy texturized, light-weight lip cream is just the product you need to create your best vampy look this season. Wear it at the football game or while roasting marshmallows at the fireside.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color – Pitch Black

Halloween and Black Friday are upon us, so how could we not include a black lipstick? Whether you’re looking for something a little more edgy than a traditional burgundy lipstick or casting spells, this shade is sure to be a stand out in your makeup collection. Be sure to wear a good lip balm underneath to prevent dry lips.

Ruby Kisses Forever Matte Liquid Lipstick – Azure 

We’re closing out our list the way we started with another bargain from Ruby Kisses. Now, we know what you’re thinking. Believe it or not, this unlikely color is this season’s hottest new trend especially with Tom Ford x Cardi B’s version retailing for $55. This shade is so fun and unique. It’s just the thing you need to spice up those boring Saturdays. Azure is a head turner but in the best way possible.
