I have nothing bad to say about dark red lipstick pretty much 365 days of the year. In fact, I’m crazy about dark lips in general, the darker the better. But I can understand why most people choose to bring out their vampiest looks towards the end of fall, because theoretically some people believe in “seasonal fashion” and “not looking like a witch.” Oh well.
If you’re hoping to try out a darker lip these days, you’re probably being bombarded by options and pushy make up salespeople. We saved you some time and rounded up 10 fantastic options that either we wear or our friends wear.

I wear this lipstick at least three days a week. It’s definitely a dark red, but a little softer than your typical super dark lip. I think of it as training wheels—a way to ease your face into full on wine-colored.
