A LOOK AT FASHION: BLACK LIPS

Yes this is the new "IN" for the season. Up until now I have loved all the purples, pinks, & mauves I've seen, but this, I just can't do.

Mac new collection is ALL black, from the eye shadow to the lipstick. Chanel is launching a very deep black/purple lip. Smashbox has their own Cranberry black. All I see is pale faces & black lips.

YSL & Estee Lauder already have their black Lip glosses in black. I have actually swatched them, & they are not completely black on the lip. If you get a chance & your walking by a counter swatch one.

Do we remember Madonna's Vamp & Very Vamp by Chanel? I remember waiting for mine on back order. If only I had a picture of me & my almost black lips. I wore it though, it could not have looked good because I'm sure I paired it with my pale fall Michigan skin.

This may be the trend I won't be following this year. Ladies if you want to tr the black lip, Halloween stores are open now as well as the drugstores with $2 black lipsticks in the costume section.
What do you think of all these black lips? Do you follow trends or are you the trendsetter?

I think this look would have to be done in a certain time and place. Clubbing perhaps. I can see teenage girls giving this a gothy try at school, in fact I've seen them doing this for quite some time. I think I would op for a deep near black (red or purple) rather than full on block black.

I don't ever plan on trying this one out...I can't even pull off the darker berry lip colors.

EEK! I don't think I'll ever buy from that collection. I do not like black or dark lips :[ maybe for halloween, yes and maybe red lips but not black lips :P

Hey Gigi! I was born and raised in Kentwood/Grand Rapids, Michigan :) I just graduated from MSU in East Lansing! I always loved visit Novi & Farmington Hills Areas : )

It's so cool to meet someone who has roots in Michigan =^_^=

I'm moving to Seattle, Washington on the 19th of this month! It would have been so nice to stop by your parents restaurant! Thank you so much for stopping by and for the sweet comment.

Do you come back to visit MI often?

*I think the black lipstick would be fun for Halloween, lol
