Black Lip Gloss: Try the Trend!Nov 6, 2012 @ 5:19 pm
Don’t be fooled by their dark, vampy finishes—these black lip glosses are more glam than goth! Noir lip colors are typically reserved for Halloween, but we love how these sheer formulas instantly double our lipstick collection. Each gloss imparts a slight purple tint when worn alone, but when layered over lipstick, they transform your punchy neons into subdued fall hues. Swipe Urban Decay’s Perversion ($19; urbandecay.com) or Givenchy’s Celestial Black ($28; sephora.com) to turn a hot pink into a dusty mauve, or use over a too-bright orange to tone down the intensity. You can also mix the glosses with a bright red for your own custom wine lipstick. Bobbi Brown’s Black Pearl ($23; bobbibrowncosmetics.com) is a metallic plum that is transparent enough to wear alone.
