Trend Crush: Plum Lips

By fashion editor Ashley

It seems that lip colors for this fall are either a bold plum or a light nude. I decided to focus on the plum for this weeks trend crush! I love the options of this color… you can go with either a purple or red, deep or light plum. I personally like a little more red to my plum, it goes better with my skin. Here is a round up of some of my favorite plum options out there. I tried to find a good range of lip products because if you are anything like me I often prefer a tinted balm over a lipstick. Which plum do you prefer? Do you have a favorite brand to recommend?

ILIA Lipstick: Femme Fatale $24.00

Clinique Chubby Stick: Grandest Grape $17.00 (my favorite!!)

Clinique Gloss: Black Honey $15.00

Burt’s Bees Tinted Balm: Red Dahlia $7.00


The Clinique chubby sticks are my new favorites. Lovely pigment that lasts and feels great on.

This color looks gorgeous on the model and it works great on women with fuller lips and the right skin tone. I haven’t worn this color since the late 90s so maybe its time to give it a try:)
