The Best Black Lipsticks You Can Wear All Year Round
Halloween might be around the corner but we’re here to tell you that black lipstick isn’t just for spooky moments – it’s a beauty must-have ALL year round. Whether it’s deep in the depths of winter or being rocked out in the sunshine, black lipstick is for all the cool kids (that means you) every single season.
So pucker up and take a look at the best black lipsticks you should snap up straight away.
Treat yourself to this Dior lipstick – you know you want to. This Ultra Night shade is super pigmented and long-lasting so there’s no need to worry about colour transfer throughout the day. Not to mention, it's extra hydrating which means no parched lips. Result!
Searching for an extra hydrating dark lippie? Look no further than this black rose oil-enriched Givenchy lipstick. The No 16 Noir Revelateur shade is the perfect way to add a burst of colour in an instant. Also, the metallic bullet casing looks fab in any makeup case or handbag.
Add a touch of pure glamour with DIOR Diorific Khol Powder Lipstick. This almost black, smoky shade is a great way to dip your toes in the dark lipstick realm without feeling overwhelmed. And with a pointed tip you can precisely apply this colour without worrying about smudges.
Channel your inner glam goth with the popular NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. This colour helps you make a BIG impact and takes your look from boring to bewitching. And with a low price tag, you don’t have to worry about spending the pennies before pay day.
We all know the pesky problems with black lipstick, but what if there was a formula that lasted up to eight hours? The Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick is the product of our dreams and a cult-favourite for good reason. The highly conditioning formula keeps your lips feeling soft without smudging throughout the day.
For a full coverage look, take a peek at this second offering from Revolution. Housed in a beautiful, rose gold casing this is a luxury, yet affordable, addition to any makeup collection. The almost black Private Members Club shade is the darkest in the collection and creates a sensational, bold look.
DIOR have delivered yet again, but this time in the form of a liquid lip stain. The black shade provides a long-lasting 12-hour coverage, which feels comfortable on your lips all day long. This makes a perfect gift for yourself or for beauty buffs who want to try something new!
On the beauty lust lists of many at Cosmetify HQ, the Fenty Beauty lip colour is a makeup must-have. Just take a look at that glam packaging! Inside contains a budge-proof, smudge-proof and even kiss-proof full coverage liquid lipstick. Of course, we love the dramatic black shade, but there’s plenty of other beautiful hues to get your hands on too.
Searching for a suede black lipstick? Take a look at this purse-friendly option from NYX Professional Makeup in shade Alien. Simply swipe the bullet directly over your lips for a full-coverage and fuss-free finish. It provides an intense colour payoff, while still feeling lightweight on your pout.
Don’t be intimated by the black Midnight shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It has a creamy texture that glides effortlessly and evenly across the lips. Not to mention, the angled tip makes it easy to apply. For extra precision and the ultimate colour control though, we recommend using a makeup lip brush.
Free from nasties, this Smashbox black lipstick is perfect for sensitive skin types. It also contains a winning combo of vitamin C and E, as well as shea butter. This helps moisturise your pout for a soft and smooth application. All you need is one swipe for a gorgeous sheer wash of colour.
Want a higher colour payoff? Rimmel have got you covered. Use the applicator provided to swipe one coat of dark colour across your lips for a long-wearing coverage. Despite the matte finish, this lipstick feels comfortable on the lips throughout the day and is perfect for special occasions.
Achieving an Insta-worthy black lip can be difficult, we know that. But you can get selfie-ready with this handy Bleach London Lip Kit in the colour Text Me Black. This handy kit has matte lip paint and matching lip liner to help you create a seamless look in just a few simple steps.
