Spotlight: Dark Lipstick

deep dark vampy black plum berry lipstick swatches best drugstore high end illamasqua film noir pristine sephora cherry bomb wetnwild Transylvania nyx copenhagen rosary sugar plum fairy
For some reason I found several old posts in my drafts this past week. I've been slowly publishing some of them and I realize that this one was more appropriate in between autumn and winter but better late than never, right? I'm still wearing my dark lipsticks! Anyway, here are a few of my vampy shades (yep, I have more) ranging from $2 all the way up to $25.


01. Wet'n'Wild MegaLast Lip Color in Sugar Plum Fairy: Allegedly this is a dupe for MAC's Rebel. I can't say for sure because I don't own that, but what I can say is that W'n'W lipsticks are long wearing and cheap! I recommend you give a few shades a try!

02. Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in Wine Not: Revlon's matte formula isn't always my favorite, sometimes it's too dry on the lips. Regardless, Wine Not is a nice alternative if you're looking for an affordable deep berry shade. 

03. Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Black Cherry: Dark colors can be unforgiving on chapped or dry lips but the Milani lipsticks have a very emollient formula. You would also like this if you're not looking for something quite as matte.

04. Wet'n'Wild MegaLast Lip Color in Cherry Bomb: This color is gorgeous. If you're looking for a cheap vampy red lipstick then Cherry Bomb is the one.

05. Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Rosary: Sadly this lipstick line (Painted Love) has been discontinued from the KVD range. I reviewed Rosary a long time ago and mentioned that the texture was stiff but that the thing wore for hours on end. 

06. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen: I love this color because it's very dark but has a noticeable hint of pink. The Soft Matte Lip Creams are affordable and have a great formula. 

07. MAC Satin Lipstick in Film Noir: Out of all my dark lipsticks this one is probably the most unique thanks to its brown undertones. It may not suit everyone's taste but I love it!

08. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania: I wore this so much during December. It's one of the prettiest Lip Creams that NYX offers. It feels comfortable even on dry winter lips (like I had in the swatch). 

09. Sephora Lip Cream in Dark Berry: The Sephora Lip Cream formula is one of the best liquid lipstick formulas I have ever encountered. I don't know what's up with this color, though. It's no longer listed on their website and always seems to be sold out in stores. I'm been dying to get a backup since mine's been hi-jacked by a friend. ;)

10. Illamasqua Matte Lipstick in Pristine: And finally, a pure black lipstick. This one is pretty good albeit not flawless. Matte blacks are hard to master. Pristine works very well over black lip liner (aka eyeliner) which is something I didn't do for these particular pictures. 


As always, don't be afraid to rock a dark bold lip. It's just lipstick! It takes some getting used to but I promise you the only comments you'll be getting are compliments (unless you're at a stuffy family party or something, we've all been there).

What's your favorite dark vampy lip color? Happy Friday!

  4. Ohh I'm loving your dark lips pick! I find that dark lips compliments my skin tone better than nude ones - will definitely give the Milani and Revlon one a go!

  23. Sugar Plum Fairy and Cophenhagen are my favorites! I don't own any truly deeper reds/berry shades and would love one! They all look great but I can tell how deep dark shades can be patchy!
