Welcoming Autumn with the ‘Dead Leaves of Lipstick’

In just a few hours now, it will be officially Autumn (in Portland, the equinox is supposed to be at 7:21 AM) so I thought I’d introduce some new Fall colors (along with some old favorites) with this ultra-sophisticated seasonal color chart!!!


Here is the color key:

A – Thee Psychic Berry

B – Irony

C – Good-bye, Little Yellow Bird*

D – Fleurocious*

E – The Coral is Coming from Inside the House*

F – Blood Red

G – Imitation Cherry*

H – Bitter Orange*

I – This Corrosion

J – Undead Red

K – Smug Pumpkin*

L – Chthonique*

*These colors are either new or were previously only sold at in-person events, by special order, or through shops. They are currently listed on Etsy in our shop at pdxblacklipstickco. They will be added to this website soon as well 🙂 🙂  🙂


Because EVERYONE looks good in black….
