Wave goodbye to your favorite pink gloss and number one nude: Halloween is just around the corner and things are about to get viciously vampy.

Spook season is just as much about ghoulish makeup as it is crazy costumes, and one thing we love about October is the fact that we can rock a petrifying pout without question.

While fake blood and face paint is all fun and games, there are tonnes of luscious lippies on the market that’ll give you a dangerously daring pout.

We're here to spice up your Halloween makeup ideas with the best go-to goth lipsticks that are darker than your soul.
