I have a confession. I always wear white after Labor Day. While some may say that I'm committing a serious fashion faux-pas, the rebel in me couldn't really care less. And honestly, I take the same approach when it comes to my makeup. The beauty handbook may say that when fall and winter roll around, the "acceptable" shades to wear on our lips are only deep purples, reds, and nudes. But as that famous Marilyn Monroe quote emphasizes, we're not looking to follow the rules here. 

So if you're reading this in hopes of finding your new favorite burgundy lip, stop here. But if you're looking to amp up your routine this season with a bright color that screams, "Look at me!" we've got you covered.
