These Are the Best Maroon Lipsticks, Hands Down


It's kind of sad to think about, but summer's almost over. Cue fall foliage and cooler temps, which might mean swapping your tube tops for leather jackets, your sandals for booties, and doing some rearranging on your makeup vanity. It's time for all those deep, sultry shades you've been saving for the fall and winter to sit front and center. Whether you tailor your makeup to the season or not, a wine-colored lip is a staple fall look. Not to throw shade on classic red lipstick, but maroon lipsticks are wayВ moodier (and we mean that in the best way).В
