“Luke, I am your father!”
Wha!? Who you talkin’ to? Ain’t no Luke here, buddy. My name is Karen, and this is my cat Tabs.
“JOIN THE DARK SIDE, LUKE!”
Man, you are cray, but OK. Sure, I’ll join the dark side…of lipstick! BOOM! What!? Surprise attack! Get him, Tabs! Attack his ankles!!
Yes, fellow fierce force users, dark, vampy plums and wines are giving me So. Much. Life. There are so many great gothy glam lip colors out there, and here are five fabulous ones for fall.
1. NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv ($22)
Oh! I love Liv’s deep, satiny aubergine finish and rich, creamy formula. It livs (get it?) online and at NARS counters, where you can find it now for $22.
2. Dolce & Gabbana Matte Lipstick in Dolce Inferno ($37)
I am burning up with love for $37 Dolce Inferno. It’s hands down one of my favorite deep, dark lippies around. A moody matte plum, it has the faintest essence of pearl that gives it a little kick.
For a dark lipstick, it’s also easy to apply. The smooth, opaque formula feels fairly thick, and it doesn’t slip and slide all over my lips when I apply it, which I do with a lip brush. You’ll find this hot ticket heating up Dolce & Gabbana counters now.
3. MAC Satin Lipstick in Cyber ($17)
My dry lips love MAC Cyber’s comfy, creamy formula. This dark, satiny plum is so creamy that it tends to scoot beyond my natural lip line, so I like to wear it with MAC Cyber World Lip Liner, because 1) the two products are like peas in a pod (the colors match very closely), and 2) the liner totally keeps Cyber under control.
Skynet approved! Look for it passing Turing tests now at MAC counters and online.
4. NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in Bewitching ($6.49)
This deep, pigmented satiny plum won’t disintegrate your wallet because it’s only $6.49, and the pencil packaging means that I can apply it without a lip brush if I want.
All it takes is one layer for full coverage, too. This bewitching beauty is a bargain, and it’s available now at drugstores, Ulta stores and online.
5. NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in Aphrodisiac ($6.49)
Talk about turn-ons! The NYX Simply Vamps are SO good that I had to include another. Aphrodisiac is a deep, opaque matte plummy reddish brown, and it’s smoother than the smoothest operator (you hear that, Tabs?). Check it out now at Ulta or your favorite drugstore.
Fall lip colors. Are you on the market for any new lipsticks this fall?
