Top Six High End Dark Lipsticks


I like to embrace my inner Goth/Vamp/Emo/Whatever occasionally. And I love dark lipstick. It’s really classy if you wear the right shades. I have a fair few in my collection, and it was hard to pick just five, so I went for six this time instead.

So here are my top six darker lipsticks. Once again swatches are in the order that they appear in the list.


♥ Clinique Plum Pop ♥

This is a very hydrating, beaustiful colour for everyday wear. It isn’t the most long-lasting but it’s so easy to apply, just keep it in your bag for future applications if you are planning on having a meal out that day. I still love the colour.

♥ Nars Audacious in Vera♥

This is a much lighter colour than the others in this list. It’s a very wearable semi-matte lipstick. It’s less likely to smudge than Rita, which is weird since they have the same formula. Never mind! I love this colour; it is a perfect pop of something extra if you have gone a bit more neutral on the eyes.

♥ MAC Viva Glam Lipstick in Ariana Grande ♥

This is the darkest lipstick that I own. It so so dark, it may as well be black. However it has some plum and red undertones, which make it more wearable. I have this on today with a plum smoky eye. It looks stunning and doesn’t draw colour out of the face like some near black lippies. And like all Viva Glam lipsticks, all money made from selling this goes to help fighting AIDS. Which is a really good thing for MAC to do. They make nothing from this.

♥ Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Femme Fatale ♥

This is a very matte lipstick. I love this one in the winter for when I want to have a more long-lasting lipstick. This doesn’t budge and looks amazing. It can be worn quite sheer, but I build it up to the full shebang.

♥ Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Live Large ♥

This was my first Bare Minerals lipstick. It’s also my most used. This is a beautiful almost neutral dark lipstick. It is gorgeous, quite long-lasting and very hydrating on the lips. I absolutely adore this one.

♥ Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Lead the Way ♥

This is a slightly creamier version of the Ariana Grande lipstick, but this has a more blue undertone. This applies quite sheer, so it’s a good one for experimenting with a vampy look. However, this does build to get a very full-on vampy dark lip. I love it so much!

So those are my favourite vampy lipsticks. What are your favourites?

Bye for now!
