Best for fair skin: Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink in Lover
The chicest way to mouth off: this long-wearing matte formula, which feels like a gloss but has the pigmented punch of a lipstick. One coat delivers a petal pink hue just a bit deeper than your natural lipcolor.
$9.50; drugstores

Best for medium skin: Clinique Pop Lip Shadow Cushion Matte Lip Powder in Fiesta Pop
The super-saturated pink powder can be layered over a gloss for a satin finish or applied directly onto lips for a matte effect. Either way, it’s fabulous.

Best for dark skin: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paints Metallic in Liquid Venom
Want to strike it rich? This crown jewel delivers an ultraflattering brilliant amber color and a superglossy finish in a liquid lipstick that won’t feather or bleed.
$10; drugstores

One for All: Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt Lipstick
With complementary light and dark colors in one bullet, this indulgent lipstick— available in five shades—is the easiest way to do one of fall’s biggest beauty trends: the ombré lip. One swipe creates a chic two-tone look.
