I’ve yet to see one of the major mass market brands go this severe (as a Goth chick at heart, I’m not complaining. I don’t exactly wear black lipstick but I’ll love it from the sidelines 4ever!)
Soon enough, a black shade will be gracing Maybelline’s shelves…as will a gloss (it isn’t totally clear whether the latter will be as boldly Night-hued.)
It’s very runway, very punk…definitely more an Autumnal / Wintery than the timing warrants, but I’m curious all the same.
If it is too much for you for any wear beyond the confines of your house, but you’re secretly wearing a cloak and patent leather boots…by all means, indulge. You can always take a selfie of your lips and revel in the sassiness of the look later… No one will have to know, and I won’t tell if you don’t! 😉
