Trend Crush: Plum Lips

By fashion editor Ashley

plum lipstick-01

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.

I agree! I’ve been using them for the last few years…. they are amazing!

Wow! I have been wanting to give plum a go. Thanks for the suggestions – yay fall!! 🙂

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:)
