Get Started
DrHauschka Play of Lights Lipstick Novum_Miraculous Rose
Trend: New Romantic
Dr. Hauschka Play of Lights Lipstick Novum in “Miraculous Rose”

Part of the new sheer Play of Lights collection from Dr. Hauschka, this romantic rose has a soft (not tween) glimmer effect that’s simple enough to apply without a mirror, and goes from work to yoga. (We swear it’s not overkill.) And it wouldn’t be Hauschka without a few overtly beneficial ingredients: Each of the shades is loaded with antioxidant black tea and argan oil for extra lip-nourishing moisture. $23.95,


w3llpeople_oxblood_lip_trendTrend: Once Bitten
W3LL PEOPLE in Crimson and Gold

To get this seductive oxblood lip look, combine the Universalist 5 Crimson Multitasking Stick (it’s gorge on cheeks pictured here, too) and the Paganist 2 Supernatural Gold Gloss, which is the eco-sexiest combo ever. Both are infused with organic aloe and omega-rich plant oils, so you’ll get loads of lip drama with products that are just as nourishing as a balm.

$33 for Universalist Multitasking Stick,; $21.50 for Paganist Gloss,


vbeaute_lip_glossTrend: Sex Pot
Vbeaute Lip Spread Anti-Age Tinting Lip Gloss in Vixen

This is a thick high-impact gloss that packs in anti-aging peptides along with a whole lot of wet and shiny pigment. The hot, tropical shades (especially Vixen at front right) have serious sex appeal—and did we mention shine? They also deliver an almost bee-stung finish. $19,


5/12 Ultra Violet
Armour Beauty in “Purple Rain”

Named for the ‘80s Prince album, this bright-pinky purple hue, created by former model and Lunachicks frontwoman Theo Kogan, is shimmeringly chic with a LDB or a moto jacket. It’s loaded with antioxidant oils and has a little stay-put stickiness that lasts longer than cocktail hour. $21,



tatcha_gold_balmTrend: Gold Dust Woman
Tatcha Gold Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm

In addition to the nutrients your lips get from this balm’s camellia nut oil, they get a super special something something—a hint of gold shimmer from a hand-placed 24-karat gold leaf. It dissolves on contact and blends beautifully. $36,


Ilia_lipTrend: Modern Love
Ilia Lip Gloss in “Heartbeat”

A simple shiny red with modern, edgy amount of transparency. It works with your Steven Alan button down and boyfriend jeans and the after-work networking night out. It’s part of a new six-piece gloss collection from lip savant Sasha Plavsic. $24,


vapour_magnetic_purpleTrend: Grape Expectations
Vapour Siren Lipstick in “Magnetic”

Want get in on the gorgeous grape trend without going bananas? This matte shade with chocolate tones is the latest launch from organic makeup powerhouse Vapour Organic Beauty. It’s office appropriate, super flattering, and not a bit severe. $22,


Nude_Lip_TrendTrend: Totally Nude
(Or, Just Jumped Off a Spin Bike)
Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in “Kaylee”

Ideal for pulling together a look as you dash from your cycling studio into a 9:00 a.m. work meeting, this creamy matte nude looks especially good with naturally flushed cheeks and smudged eyes. It’s loaded with moisturizing (and popular) moringa and avocado oils, plus organic pomegranate blackberry extracts. (It’s part of a new 24-shade collection.) $25,



orange-lipTangerine Dream
Kjaer Weis in “Sweetness”

The subdued orange tones with a beachy-coral context have been a hit since spring. Fall is no time to stop: It looks great on so many complexions and is less serious or vampy than red. Orange is red’s brainy beauty cousin, and we like the creamy restraint shown in Sweetness (a bit more sheer than shown here). Plus, Weis’s palettes in Zippo-lighter like stainless steel are the beauty industry’s most gorgeous, both in and out of the natural aisles. $48 with compact ($24 for refill),



Bite_LipCashmereRIOJARed, Red Wine
BITE Cashmere Lip Cream in “Rioja”

You won’t believe the amount of pigment packed into this new shade—and in the rest of BITE’s innovative category of super-matte lip creams. The formula makes every color super dramatic yet light, almost like the effect you get when using a lip pencil or a stain. Or both. It goes on with a wand and won’t budge or feather, thanks to Japanese silica. And the clean ingredients and infusion of resveratrol give it serious natural cred. $28,
