Vamp It Up!
Published Nov 17, 2011
We've already told you how popular they were on the runway, but dark lips are a major statement during fall and winter, and look gorgeous when paired with lip gloss for a night out. Whether you prefer a luxurious wine-colored shade or a deep blood-red, there's always a way to wear a vampy lipstick. Pair your pout with a little black dress and opaque tights, jeans and a sparkly top, or a velvet dress for extra glamour.
Although Tom Ford's new line of lipsticks is at the pricey end, this decadent formula is creamy and highly pigmented, so your lips will practically scream old Hollywood. This shade is a deep purple plum that works just as well on light complexions as it does on darker ones.
This creamy formula is a deep wine-colored red that gets darker as you apply more coats, and instantly makes your lips feel protected and moisturized. It comes out matte, but is also stunning paired with lip gloss for a shiny, candy-apple look.
For a perfect dark lip, nothing beats a burgundy shade. These lipsticks really do moisturize dry lips, so they're ideal for the colder months. They also last for hours without requiring a touch-up, so you can dance the night away without thinking about your makeup.
