Makeup artists and hairstylists have told us countless times that modern-day beauty has no rules. One indication of that shift is the seasonless lipstick. Fall isn’t a time for just one shade of lipstick, as exhibited by a crop of new color options ranging from plum to poppy pink. The Cut played around with hundreds of new shades — testing out vampy purples, corals, reds, and even blues — to find the best lipsticks out there right now. Here are our favorites, paired with cozy faux-fur coats (another big trend for fall), and modeled by staffers and friends. Click through to find your perfect pairing.
