It’s time to talk about black lipstick. I know it’s not for everyone. In fact, I never thought it was for me. But girl, let me tell you. Swipe on some black lipstick and you’ll feel like a badass babe in about one second. I was looking all over for a good black lipstick, and I finally got my hands on this one from Kat Von D. I actually purchased this lipstick at Sephora when I was in Spain last summer. Guys, I’m obsessed. I’m getting back into my “Dark Grace” (because the old Grace can’t come to the phone right now) phase being that Reputation is dropping in a few short days. And while we may have rang in Red a few years back wearing crimson lips, I’ll be awaiting Reputation in black.
Did you guys like my Taylor Swift analogy? 😉
For real, I love love love Kat Von D lipsticks. I had one in the shade Lovecraft (a soft, angelic pink color) for years and it was my favorite lipstick ever. The only reason I got rid of it was because I realized I had kept it way too long and it was simply too old.
The colors are so pigmented- what you see on the label is exactly how it appears on your lips. The colors range from natural to bold, and the formula is very thick and creamy for a lipstick. They stay on for a long time and they don’t dry out your lips.
Now let’s talk about this specific color. I love the black because it is buildable. You can dab on a bit and blot it for a more refined, dark look, or you can layer it up for an opaque black. It’s not too dramatic, and it’s actually perfect for everyday wear because it has a bit of transparency.
If you’re afraid to take the plunge and go for black lips, deep purples are a great way to transition. But, if you’re like me and you’re ready for a bold twist…well, Kat Von D’s Slayer is for you.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading.
