Fall Beauty Trends 2009: Bold Lips

Hey Bombshells!

Today's trend is all about fabulously bold lips! That's right, this season is all about the statement making pout. The two hottest ways to get in on this trend is with bright colors and with deep, dark, moody shades.

Think reds, brick, and fuscia for perfect brights for brown skin. We brown girls can pull of any deep shade, so go crazy with plums, eggplants, deep wines, even black if you're feeling daring! If you want to try black lipcolor, but don't want to go all the way, layer it over red lipstick for a deep, sexy look.

Also, lipstick is what's hot right now, so give your lip gloss a rest for the season and try out one of these sexy lip colors for Fall!

2.Wet ‘n’ Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Fuscia With Blue Pearl, $1

4.Yves Saint Laurent FARD À LÈVRES ROUGE PUR Pure Lipstick in 131 Opium Red, $30

Dark lipsticks and rich jewel tones fascinate me. It's one of the reasons I love Fall/Winter so much. I am waiting not-very-patiently for the MAC and Chanel collections. I've been obsessed with dark lipsticks since Revlon was an expensive purchase. I have MAC Verushka, but only use it sparingly, as it's discontinued. Chanel's Eyeshadow Quad is a must for my wishlist, and I have to test Maniac and Obscure to see if they want to come home with me. As for MAC, I plan to play with most of it in the store and figure out what I need once I see how it behaves. Some of the must-tests include the Night Violet Mattene Lipstick, Blackfire Glimmerglass, Bat Black Cream Colour Base, and Baby Goth Girl Polish.

@Arionne I think Impassioned is an amazing shade. It gives a nice pop of color without going overboard. You should def check it out!

@Karla You are on it, girl! I too am in anticipation of MAC's Style Black collection. Not sure if I'll pick it up, but I def want to try it out. What I really want are those Chanel lipsticks! I cannot WAIT until they come out!
