The Best Soft Autumn Lipsticks

Lipstick Choices

Ahh, lipstick. It’s my personal favorite makeup item, but I don’t think I’m biased in saying that the quest for even one lipstick that seems to work is what drives many women to seek out a personal color analysis. Being able to know that exact perfect shade, wear it until the tube is worn down to the nub, and buy another one can sound like livin’ the dream if you’ve been trying shade after shade, only to become quickly disenchanted with each new one after a brief honeymoon period.


My Tips

I do have some basic tips for you when shopping for the right shade of lipstick now that you know your personal colors. (Don’t know yours? Check out Personal Color Analysis)

  • Stick to Tried and True brands
    • While it’s fun to try random brands, going with brands that have stood the test of time will mean a quality product every (most?) time.
  • Use Your Palette
    • It may sound so obvious, but bring that palette with you to the makeup counter – you’ll be shocked at how well it works, and the staff will thank you as well.
  • Stock Up
    • Just like that perfect shirt you found, when you go back to get another version, it’s never there. The same can be true with lipsticks. When you find that daily go-to, buy a few.
  • Use Your Resources
    • You aren’t alone! If you are a member of The Society, post in the Facebook group to seek suggestions and peer reviews. Plus it’s fun to share a score when you find one!

My Complete Shopping Guide

View my full list of recommendations from lipsticks to eye shadows to some of my favorite things.


  1. What season palette would Mac Viva Glam 2 fall? I am stuck between soft autumn, or with a tan can do some warm spring. This color was recommended to me.

    • I haven’t personally swatched it, but I’m pretty sure it would fall in the soft summer to soft autumn range somewhere. It has a definite mauvey undertone that doesn’t seem right for a Spring season.

  2. I love that you put this together. I just received results and I’m Soft Autumn. I’ve already had Twig in my makeup box but I rarely wear it because it washes me out. Could the professional color analysis I had be wrong? I just find that with makeup soft autumn recommended makeup colors rarely work on me without washing me out.
