9 Black Lipsticks To Try (Blame It On Halloween If It Looks Awful)

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 1.12.37 PMLooking at this photograph of stone cold fox Nikia Phoenix is making me totally crave black lipstick, and I still haven’t found a shade that works for me yet. My co-worker Joanna suggested that I use my YSL black lipgloss over plain ‘ol black eyeliner, so I may give that a whirl today because the lipgloss by itself just gives my lips a berry sheen. We can also blame the amazingly lovely Lorde and her Tennis Court video for this, which shows a very plain face with a next to black lipstick.

I think with a neutral face and a simple eye, black lipstick can look totally up-to-the-minute and chic, unlike back in the day when some of us were smearing our lips with black drugstore eyeshadow in an attempt to look like Siouxsie Sioux. Plus, if it ends up looking wonky, you can always make the excuse you were just practicing for Halloween.

      Honestly, I’ve always been so nervous about black lipstick (I’m barely brave enough to try purple!), but these are convincing me. I think I’m gonna try the OCC one first :D

      The last time I wore black lipstick was about 5 years ago, and I didn’t know anything about makeup. Someone please explain wtf is happening with my eyebrows here? Not to mention everything else. I’m going for a redo this year, though I’m starting with deep deep purple.
