Fall Trend To Try: Oxblood Red Lips

This vampy, burgundy shade is everywhere this season and I love it. Along with my new oxblood sweater, I’m eyeing faux-leather pants too. But we’re here to talk about the makeup and the dark black-red lips are a bold trend that’s actually totally dramatic and wearable. You can go sheer, deep, glossy or matte. But if you go for the full color, it’s important to keep the rest of your makeup neutral — these lips don’t need to compete with eyes and cheeks. Here are a few of our favorites:

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Noir, $34

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga, $25

Cover Girl Queen Collection Lipcolor Lipstick in Fine Wine, $7

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, $15

Would you wear this shade in full color or go sheer?  Share your thoughts.

    This was my favorite look in high school. It’s great to see the dark burgundy lips make a come-back. Love it!

  2. Just googled swatches of Chanel Rouge Noir & NARS Volga & they’re AMAZING.

    On my wishlist now. Thank you!

  3. I work for Estee Lauder and I’m going to choose the perfect Oxblood color lipstick……
