Beauty Trend. Black Lipstick – Hot or Not?

September 8, 2010 • Beauty


I've always been an advocate for 'individual style' as it relates to both the fashion and beauty industries. However, most recently, there are talks of black lipstick topping the makeup favs list on the runway this season, and I must admit that this is one trend I absolutely will not try. Whatever happened to the number 1 trend of soft, pretty makeup palettes that grace the covers of Vogue and Glamour? What about the perfectly painted face of Barbie? (Even Ken had flawless skin). Since when did "less is more" go out of style? Don't get me wrong, if gothic makeup is your thing, by all means go for it, but please don't become agitated with the bystander who gives you the doe-eyed "WTF" stare. Yes, makeup is fun – and should definitely display cool traits of your personality, but we have special days of the year that allot for extreme dress up time, better known as Halloween.

We'd like to hear from you! Would you wear black lipstick?
