Burgundy is also not just limited to clothing this fall and winter; it is also the hottest lip color. (Above: Rochas; Gucci.) While it is pretty easy to pull off a classic fall color like burgundy as an apparel item, it can be a little trickier to pull off such a bold lip color. The trick is to find the right burgundy shade for your skintone. Below are some burgundy lipsticks for you to consider: NARS pure matte lipstick in "Volga" for $25 on www.sephora.com; Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick creme in "Black Cherry" for $9.94 on www.amazon.com; Sephora Rouge Shine lipstick in "Deep Burgundy Gold Metallic" for $12 on www.sephora.com; Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant lipstick in "Deep Plum Burgundy" for $34 on www.sephora.com.
