Fall Beauty: Our Top 5 Oxblood Lip Picks


If it’s fall, it’s all about the lips . . . classic reds, playful berries and dark oxblood colors.  Here I’m rounding up our top 5 dark lip colors in formulas from matte stains to sheer lipsticks.  Add one for an easy way to update your fall look.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Rubino 

Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick has been one of our long-time faves here at TME.  It really does stay all day and doesn’t transfer when you kiss your littles.  Rubino is a gorgeous dark red color and my favorite pick of the bunch.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry

This is a classic lipstick formulation . . . not matte, not glossy, but a perfectly deep color that applies smoothly.  I’d recommend layering over a primer for long-lasting wear but this color is amazing.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Blackberry

Bobbi Brown’s Crushed Lip Color is like a lipstick that feels like a balm.  Super moisturizing, long-wearing and light, this was probably the most comfortable to wear.  It’s not kiss or transfer-proof, but it’s easy to apply and the color is buildable depending on the level of pigment you want.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Maestro in 201

Unlike other lip stains , this formula feels more hydrated and moist on your lips.  As a drawback, however, it’s not as long-lasting or feather-proof.  If you don’t like the feel of typical matte lip stains that are dryer, give this one a try.  I love the orange in this dark red color.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Heathers

Remember the brown-red lips that were everywhere in the 90’s?  This is it.  Another color that’s kiss-and-transfer-proof, I applied it more concentrated on the outside of my lips for a slight ombre effect (helps the lips appear bigger).    

Did I miss your favorite oxblood color? Let us know in the comments!





  1. Berries, burgundy, and oxblood are my thing all year round. My favorites are Laura Geller Love Me Dew in Plum Freeze, Bobbi Brown Your Majesty, Smashbox Fig, Tarte Tempted lip tint, Milani Matte Love, Milani Cabaret Blend, NYX Liquid Plum, and Besame Merlot.

  2. Love these! But I’d love to know what mascara you’re wearing. I’m always on the quest for the perfect mascara. Just tried UD Peversion this week but that brush is a bit tricky. For me it’s all about clump prevention. Your lashes look amazing!
