Makeup has no rules, that’s one place you can be as creative and experimental as you want to be! However, there are a few tricks that might help you enhance your makeup looks.
We upgrade our wardrobe when we transition from one weather to another to channel the vibes better. Similarly, there’s something amazing about switching your lipstick shades from summer to fall so you can add rich plums and warm chocolates to your collection.
Some people love going for a vampy, gothic look which does look amazing but I have always been a subtle-glam girl. So I always try to find a balance and try colours that help me channel the fall vibes but don’t look too over-the-top.
In today’s post, I have narrowed down some of my favourite drugstore lipsticks that you can wear this fall and beyond.

The shade Frick N’ Frack is a gorgeous muted, dark rosy-terracotta with hints of plum and warm undertones. It’s one of those shades that will look great on everyone irrespective of their skin tone. The formula is semi-matte but with time it gets more matte yet feels comfortable.
It looks like a dark plum shade on lighter skin tone, gorgeous rosy plum on medium skin tones like mine and a perfect rosy-terracotta nude on people with darker skin tone.
And it lasts all day so you can munch on Apple Cider Donuts and Pumpkin Spice Latte all you want without worrying about touchups.
This shade is named after the city of Budapest that is world-famous for its Opera House. It’s a deep mauve with red undertones that would look great on every skin tone.
Budapest offers you a nice wash of berry without giving you a vampy look so it’s great if you’re looking for something-berry that’d get you in the fall mood without being too bold. It needs two layers for opaque coverage and sets to a completely matte finish.
If you’re not ready to go full-throttle with a deep black-ish berry then Wet N Wild Sugar Plum Fairy is an ideal option. Sugar Plum Fairy is a purplish-berry shade that looks more ‘berry’ when you apply the lipstick on your lips or swatch it.
It’s a bold shade that screams fall and flatters people of all skin tones, from lightest to the deepest. It is also known to be a close dupe of MAC’s Rebel and has a semi-matte finish.
Kapish is a dusty warm brown lipstick that would look great on every skin colour but it will look exceptionally good on brown women.
The finish of the lipstick is matte but very comfortable and lightweight. The warm brown tones are perfect for fun fall activities like roaming through a pumpkin patch or taking a detox by spending quality time with family in a rustic cabin while sipping on cider.
Red never goes out of style! Crimson Silk is a deep, matte red that you’ll want to wear this fall and beyond. The Lakme 9to5 Lip and Cheek Color deliver a long-lasting, comfortable and non-bleeding formula that will last until you decide to wipe it off at the end of the night.
