If you don’t have at least one vampy lipstick in your beauty arsenal, we need to have a serious conversation.

As much as we love a neutral lip, there’s something irresistible about wearing deep, sultry shades—especially during the fall season, and extra especially with Halloween exactly one week away. Here are some dark-hued lipsticks sure to help you achieve a scary-good pout.

TIP: When wearing darker shades, it’s important to make sure your lips are extra hydrated so the ultra-pigmented colors apply evenly.

Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lip Color in Travis

This rich mahogany color takes those typical autumn-inspired lipstick shades to the dark side. Infused with exotic ingredients and specially treated pigments, Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lip Color delivers a creamy swipe of deep color with a metallic finish. In fact, we think Travis makes the perfect finishing touch to a glamorous vampire makeup look this Halloween.

Inglot Cosmetics Lipstick in 435 Matte

We love how this deep sangria shade plays with brown and purple undertones for a truly bewitching pout! Formulated with vitamin E and apricot kernel oil, this lipstick delivers colorful moisture so you can avoid frightening chapped skin.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Chianti

With every great lip look comes great responsibility. Sometimes deep-toned shades can fade or transfer to your teeth—especially when you’re enjoying your favorite Halloween candy. This imperial purple shade from Stila provides an intensely pigmented wash of matte color that doesn’t stray or bleed for up to 6 hours.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Lipstick in Zero

We think everyone needs a pure black shade in their makeup collection, just in case you get the sudden desire to go full-on Wednesday Addams for the day, or night. This silk-textured color from Sugarpill Cosmetics delivers dark matte coverage without blue or brown undertones.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Lip Kits in Unicorn Blood

Deep red lips are always a good idea. We love how this rich burgundy color is available in both lipstick and liner—because who wants to spend time shade matching when you should be trick-or-treating? Jeffree’s creamy Velour Lip Liner glides over skin to cleanly trace your pout, while his Velour Liquid Lipstick infuses your look with bold, transfer-proof color.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Nocturnal

Bring out your inner night owl with a lipstick that makes you want to stay out past curfew! This edgy indigo shade features a non-drying formula that comfortably dries down to an opaque, matte finish. The flat tip applicator delivers a precisely drawn pout that lasts from the start of your Halloween party until you see the morning light.
