Dark Lips for Fall...
Nothing groundbreaking: dark and intense lips are one of the biggest beauty trends for this fall.
You 've probably already seen that on the runway, or looked at promo pics of almost any fall collection from the majority of the beauty brands: YSL, Chanel, MAC, NARS - they all included a few dark lipstick options for their fall collections.
Now, I don't know how many of you would agree, but up until a few months ago, before this trend went "mainstream" so to speak, I found dark lipsticks to be slightly indimidating.
I 'm a sworn nude lipstick fan and not exactly the person that would get out of their comfort zone that easily, so it took a bit of time until this trend grew on me!
The turning point was all of those Style Black hauls and the gorgeous bold lipstick looks that all of the beauty bloggers went for - all of your looks ladies were so "high fashion", goes to show that a dark lip is not just a goth culture signature!
Clearly, a black lip is too much for me, I 'd most likely end up looking...weird to say the least, but I 've explored a couple of other options:
- MAC Amorous. It's a satin finish (my favorite), and it's a gorgeous deep berry/plum shade, that would probably work for most complexions. It looks quite darker in real life and it's one of these vampy shades that will surely get you noticed (sexy & seductive: check)! ;)
- Sephora Splendid Violet from their Lip Attitude Chic range. A real deep violet shade. It reminds me of the promo pic from NARS fall '09, it's the same shade of purple, only this one is even darker! Great dark lipstick, if you want to add a bit of colour to the...darkness, then this one will do the trick for you! (P.S.: If you have any good lipliner recommendations for this one, do let me know)!
So, have you been into the "dark lip" trend this fall?
And if you have, what lipsticks/lipglosses did you go for? :)
