Super Vampy Black Lips

I love fall!  I love the clothes, the weather, no more worrying about sweating your cuteness off as soon as you walk out the door and most importantly the colors.  I love the richness and darkness of the colors, oranges, burgundies, brown, red.  We've all seen the loveliness that is Cult of Cherry but how about adding black lips to your vamp palette.  I love some black nail polish but I'm not quite sure how I feel about black gloss.  The only folks I knew who wore black lips were goths railing against "the system" which were the nuns in my high school.

YSL is introducing Pur Black which was available pre-order and is now sold out.  Pur Black is being described as a sheer color so I guess it will be really good to layer with.

 Lancome has their Color Fever Lip Gloss in Phia Black which when paired with the Color Fever Lipstick in Phia Red, inspired by the infamous Christian Louboutin red soles, isn't so bad.









So what say you?   Will you get your vamp on rocking the black or the combo black and red lip this fall?

I don't yet...it makes me think about in the 90's when you saw a lot of black women wearing black lipstick. You remember that? I know it's a gloss but still, lol! I'm hoping it might have a 3D effect if that's possible! And I don't want to look like a 30's comic book character! :)

The picture is so high drama!!! It's beautiful but I know I would probably look like a Halloween costume gone wrong.

hmm for a dark lip i'd only go as far as the deep browns (cult of cherry).. for an artistic look.. yes... but then mac pro and black lipliner and gloss just may have to do... everything on the runway isn't for real life.

what say you suzie?

@ twinkle - I kinda want it too but I think I may look for a cheaper one.

@ amina - I'm curious to see how it will look on brown girls. I love reds too!

@ beautiful brown skin - I know what you mean I have mixed feelings about it.

@ anjela - I remember rocking the black liner and the red lip...lol It's pretty sheer so I think it will add a wash of color.

@ seymone - I can't wait to see it!

@ shawnta - The pic looks really nice but there is a big possibility of having a when glam goes wrong moment,

@ yummy - I say maybe. I curious to see what it looks like in real life so I may check the beauty supply stores for a cheap dupe.

The more I read the posting and see pics of the black gloss, I'm having a change of heart. But a black cherry would probably be the darkest I can go. NYX has a black gloss that can be found out mydivascloset.com it's only $5 I'm not sure how much shipping runs though.
