Not that you need an excuse to buy new lipstick, but I've gotta say—this season's crop of new shades is very exciting!

It used to be that fall lips meant red lips, and that was that. But now, there are so many more interesting colours to choose from.

Think '90s-inspired browns and brick reds, vampy oxbloods and purples, shimmery plums and glossy raspberries. Plus the always on trend nude, and bright magenta (which used to be strictly for summer, but not anymore).

Fall and winter lipstick colours

The best new lipstick colours for fall and winter.

I've rounded up my top picks for fall and winter—all available at Sephora—and there's bound to be a shade (or three) here that you'll love.

Here are my top lip picks for fall and winter:

1. Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in No. 437 Oxblood

Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in No. 437 Oxblood

Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in Oxblood No. 437.

Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in Oxblood No. 437 is a gorgeous deep burgundy with a semi-matte finish. If you love a stained look, this is for you! The formula feels weightless and gives you a muted, lived-in finish. For a similar but slightly subtler effect, choose Damson No. 425

2. Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1993

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1993.

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1993 is a matte medium brown. Don't be afraid; even though it is '90s-inspired, it's actually a super-flattering and very modern-looking shade! The formula is comfortable and not at all drying.

3. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Chula

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Chula.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Chula is a rich, warm sienna. Compared to predictable blue-reds, I find these orangey-brown undertones so much more interesting! The formula is matte and high pigment; I recommend wearing a lip balm underneath.

4. Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in True Liar

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in True Liar.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in True Liar is a beautiful bold plum. You could also blot it down to a softer mauve stain. This is a hybrid with the rich pigment of a lipstick but the fluid texture of a gloss. Unlike most liquid lipsticks I've tried, it doesn't dry out your lips.

5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 976 Be Dior

Dior Addict Lipstick in 976 Be Dior.

Dior Addict Lipstick in 976 Be Dior is a glossy raspberry with fuchsia shimmer. The colour is universally flattering and the finish is very forgiving—just swipe it on and go. With its moisturizing oil-based core, this will be a great one for cold winter weather.

6. Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Definition in 294 Le Pourpre

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Definition in 294 Le Pourpre

Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Definition in 294 Le Pourpre.

Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Definition in 294 Le Pourpre is a deep purple. Don't be alarmed by how dark it looks in the tube; it goes on with a bit of a sheer quality, and has a hint of red that makes it very wearable. The finish is a creamy matte, thanks to jojoba and essential oils.

7. Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Cherries Jubilee

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Cherries Jubilee.

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Cherries Jubilee is a bluish red. This is such a great face-brightening shade, and I love the wet shine. Even though there's a lot of colour, the formula is still very balmy, packed with nourishing vitamins and butters.

8. Guerlain Kiss Kiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm in R374 Wonder Violette

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm in R374 Wonder Violette

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm in R374 Wonder Violette.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm in R374 Wonder Violette is a sheer violet. As the name indicates, this is a tinted balm, so you're getting tons of hydration (thanks to rose oil) and a soft flushed look. The white packaging is so chic!

9. Estée Lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Desirous

Estee Lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Desirous

Estée Lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Desirous.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Desirous is a deep chestnut brown. I really am warming up to browns! The berry in this one makes it come to life. With a creamy matte texture, the effect is oh so dramatic.

10. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Fig

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Fig is a pearlescent wine tint. How cool is this combo of shimmer and plum? Again, very '90s! As per usual, the formula is insanely hydrating, with an addictive lemon sugar scent.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Kiss & Love Collectors Lipstick in 19 Fuchsia.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Kiss & Love Collectors Lipstick in 19 Fuchsia is a magenta. With its sumptuous creamy colour, it is definitely one of the nicest cool-toned fuchsias I've ever tried. And can we talk about the lip-print packaging? Swoon!

12. Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Park Ave Princess

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Park Ave Princess.

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Park Ave Princess is a nude. You can't go wrong with this pretty pink-tinted neutral, infused with natural ingredients. The colour is subtle and shiny; it would work on anyone, and feels especially great on dry lips.

13. Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Chic

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Chic

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Chic.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Chic is a glossy berry. I love these formulas for their mirror-like shine and single-swipe application. Also, the colour is a bit subdued, which makes it a good choice for days when you don't want the impact of a full-blown lipstick.
