Fall is right around the corner, and the fashion set has already zeroed in on the lip colors we'll all be coveting this season. It's hard to believe the time has already come to start tailoring our hair, skin, nail, and makeup routines to the upcoming cooler climate, but after a long Hot Girl Summer, we're honestly ready for a Chill Girl Fall. (No, seriously, can we make that a thing?)
Just in time for the seasonal shift, we slid into the DMs of some of our most fashionable friends to get the scoop on the lippies they're already loving. From berry tints to versatile nudes and even some super-bright and happy hues, our trusty crew gave us the details on the fall lip colors they'll be imprinting on the lids of their pumpkin spice lattes.
Ahead, find eight shades that made the cut, and where to get them.
