Black lips have always been a go-to for all goths but this trend is now breaking into the mainstream beauty community quite successfully. Looking on the bright side, this have proven a great opportunity for us to get our hands on black lippies much easier than before. And not only that but the variety they offer makes it possible to find exactly what you’re looking for. Be it a long lasting lippie, matte, vegan or kiss proof, there is something out there that will meet your expectations if not exceed them. Check our recommendations below and find the perfect black lipstick for you!
Let’s get started with Jeffree Star Cosmetics and the shade Weirdo of their Velour Liquid Lipsticks. As you can guess from the name, it is a liquid to matte lipstick. It is highly pigmented and you can even layer it up for a more opaque lip. It’s also transfer proof, vegan and cruelty free.
Kat Von D offers two different types of black lippies. The first one is a classic lipstick from the Studded Kiss range and includes not one but two black shades. Slayer is a long lasting black lipstick with an amazing packaging that you have to carry with you everywhere and show it off when you touch up your makeup. If you’re more into shimmery lippies, then Naeyon is for you, with a gunmetal shimmer that is guaranteed to make an impression.
The second type of lipstick you will find at KVD is from the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick collection and is named Witches. It’s a medium-dark black with neutral undertones liquid to matte long-lasting wear lippie with yet an amazing packaging. It has a high-pigment color for an opaque coverage.
If you’re looking for something more affordable, then you have to check NYX Cosmetics. Their Macaron Lippies include the shade Chambord, which is a black lipstick with a very creamy formula and satin matte finish.
Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in the shade Perversion is a deep black with neutral undertones and a slight shimmer. It has a light cream texture that prevents your lips from drying and it’s also long wearing.
Back to liquid lippies, ColoredRaine contributes with their Matte Lip Paints and specifically with the shade 2 AM. It is a matte, long wear and smudge proof lippie. Thumbs up for being vegan as well.
Midnight is a deep black liquid lipstick with a matte finish and neutral undertones by Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is long wearing and has a very intense/ “ultra saturated” pigment for full coverage.
