Beauty bandwagon: 8 lipsticks to work the dark lips trend

If the runways and red carpets weren’t telling enough lately, dark lipsticks are beauty’s next big thing. It’s not a new trend — sultry, dark hues have always been a mainstay for the fall, but dark lips have evolved into being wearable no matter what the season (not like it matters for Singapore, since it’s sweltering all year round).

For anyone keen on embracing your inner vamp, here are eight lip products in a variety of finishes that Morticia Addams would approve of.

Dark colours aren’t especially forgiving on drier lips, so opting for a moisturising, glossier dark lipstick is the way to go. Bobbi Brown’s Nourishing Lip Colour comes infused with vitamins, avocado, olive oil complex, jojoba oils and cocoa seed butter, creating a deeply hydrating cocktail for your lips.

Available at all Bobbi Brown boutiques.

theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes’ formula one to try out if you’re an inch away from giving up on liquid lipsticks that always seem to make your mouth appear like you face-swapped with CryptKeeper. It dries perfectly matte without being unforgiving, doesn’t flake or crumble, and is infused with mint, making your lips feel cool upon application. Adoring is a dark red, with plummy undertones, perfect for those who want to sample dark lips without going full goth.

Available at Sephora online and Sasa.

Too Faced Melted Matte in Drop Dead Red, $33

Instead of blood red lips, try a deeper mulberry colour like Drop Dead Red. It’s bluer undertones helps whiten your teeth too. The Melted Matte formula is one to try if you favour liquid lipsticks with a thinner consistency, and while it doesn’t last all day, the colour pay-off is rich and incredibly even.

Available at Sephora.

Tarte Tarteist Naughty Nudes Lip Paint in Brownie, $33

While brown is technically a nude tone, a really dark shade like Brownie introduces an alternative to all the plummy tones that saturate dark lipsticks. The Tarteist Lip Paint has a very moussey consistency, which applies comfortably. While it dries matte, it’s not a particularly long-lasting formula.

Available at Sephora.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv, $44

NARS’ Audacious formula is incredibly pigment rich, comfortable to wear and bears just a hint of sheen. Liv is a cool-toned, dark aubergine colour with a tinge of red — take it as the hallmark hue of the dark lipstick trend.

Available at Sephora.

Lancôme Shine Lover Lipstick in Plum d’Audace, $36

Almost like a balm in texture, Lancôme Shine Lover is a deeply moisturising sheer lipstick that’s easy to apply. It’s sheerness allows for even fading, making it a safe option to try if you’re someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to check and re-apply your lipstick throughout the day.

Available at Sephora and Lancôme stores.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Witches, $31

What better way to be adventurous with the dark lipstick trend than apply a full matte black lipstick? The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is also extremely long-wearing and rich in pigment, though it veers towards the drier side, so be sure to moisturise and exfoliate your lips before application.

Available at Sephora.
