Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

The same statement can be said for a woman in a great shade of lipstick.  I guarantee that you’ll never forget a women wearing an incredible shade of lipstick that complements both her skin tone and her overall look perfectly.

When it comes to fall makeup trends. the colours that reign supreme are inevitably reminiscent of a colour palette favoured by Marilyn Monroe, Gwen Stefani and Dita Von Teese; crimson lip shades elevate your power suit and up your sex factor, but the one thing this colour has that transcends time and style is that it will always be classic and there will always be a shade that suits everyone.

Now that we’re deeply entrenched in fall weather, here are my top picks for crimson lip shades that will keep you looking impeccably stylish and incredibly sexy:


  • Stephanie

    Love the picture! I always feel intimidated by this colour but want to join in the fall trend. Which one do you think would work best for the uninitiated? Or is just more buildable rather than Wa-BAM opacity and colour upon first swipe?

    • Hey Stephanie! This is definitely a fun colour that would look great on you, but if you want to start out slow then I would suggest Ilia’s lip gloss in Gypsy. This gives you a hint of a deep crimson hue without being too intense. All of the options have buildable colour, but if you’ve never worn red before then you could feel like it’s too much. Another great intro to the red family, without being too in-your-face, is Ilia’s Arabian Knights. It’s a lip conditioner so the red isn’t intense. I hope you take the plunge! Let me know if you do and what colour you go with! xx

    First off that pic is gorgeous! Second I think I need to try RMS diabolique. And soon! Thanks for the post!

    • You’re welcome! Diabolique is a gorgeous shade, just be sure to have well hydrated lips as it’s a tad on the drying side. Let me know if you end up getting it 🙂 xx

  • I love this color! I’ve also been adoring the RMS beauty in diabolique, I have been using it so much. It just instantly makes me look more put-together and autumnal. Have also been eyeing the lip products from Kjaer Weis and La Bella Figura. Thanks for sharing!

    • I love reserving diabolique for night time for when I really want to punch up an outfit 🙂 You should definitely give Lover’s Choice a whirl and if you have Ilia’s gypsy lip gloss pair it with diabolique for a fun new berry shade!

  • How gorgeous is that girl! Her lipstick suits her perfectly. I love deep lips at this time of year 🙂

    • I know right?! I love her cute smattering of freckles and reddish-orange hair 🙂
