The Best Dark Lipsticks for Halloween and Beyond
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.
It doesn’t get darker than this. Whether you want to channel your inner Rihanna or add the final touches to your spine-chilling costumes, black is the way to go. The NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick is our favorite liquid lipstick and will give you the wickedest lip with minimal effort.
It's not quite as daring as a matte black, but it's still packed with drama. Drop Dead Red is the dark lipstick every beauty guru needs for Halloween and beyond. The rich burgundy hue suits all skin tones and is infused with a Volulip complex for a no-sting plumping effect.
It’s time to start gathering deep berry and plum hues as autumn is the perfect excuse to flaunt a pretty purple pout. Burt’s Bees bring you a gorgeous cream lippy that will keep your smackers hydrated through the colder weather.
Pair this with spooky nails to create an all over vampy look.
Give Dracula a run for his money with this deep red from Urban Decay. Bad Blood is the fan favorite that leaves lips with a devilish matte finish. It's the number one choice if you want to add a scare-worthy but sultry statement to your outfit this year.
This color is perfect for creating a Wednesday Adams inspired Halloween makeup look, head over to our Top 10 Halloween Makeup Looks to find out how.
There's no better night than Halloween to sin. Not only is this autumnal lipstick a 90s favorite, but it's the ultimate deep dark blue red that'll perfect any spooky costume. If you just so happen to have a 90s-inspired 'fit this year, then you might be on to a winner.
If dark lipsticks aren’t really your thing, then cast your eyes over this stunner. Night Orchid is the ultimate deep pink-purple shade that allows you to channel your inner vamp without having to part from the pink side.
Deep Secret by Estée Lauder is one sure-fire way to achieve a sultry pout. As well as coating lips with a deep berry hue, this lipstick provides a matte cream finish that doesn't crease, cake or bleed.
A midnight blue lipstick is exactly what you need if you’re looking to raise hairs and score some ghoulish points. Ciate London provide a deep, dark blue with a hint of shimmer for a mirror-like, cold matte finish.
While orange might not be vampy so to speak, it provides total pumpkin-spice vibes, which is what October's all about, right? Boasting a gorgeous orange shade, the Lime Crime liquid lipstick will add a little spice to your makeup look.
Love your vampy lip look a little too much? The glam doesn't have to stop after spook-season. Wear your favorite dark lipstick beyond Halloween and check out The Best Black Lipsticks You Can Wear All Year Round.
