When I fall in love with a certain makeup look, I absolutely become obsessed. In this case, my newest obsession is…vampy lips. Some people call the shade oxblood, burgundy, cognac, etc…I just like to call it vampy because it can be many different shades: dark red, dark brown, and dark purple lips. I like the dark red/purple and the red/brown shades as well as the red/black too. Here are several different dark lip colors I saw and fell in love with:
If I had to choose my favorite shade based on these photos, I think it would be the dark red lip look on Taylor Hill (photo is second from last). Which of these vampy lip look is your favorite?
I haven’t purchased one yet but here are the brands/colors I’ve been eyeing to find the perfect dark red vampy lipliner/lipstick:
-Nars Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte (oxblood burgundy) and Bette (bordeaux)
-MAC Lipstick Diva
-MAC Lipliner in Currant
-Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in 9C (burgundy) or 11 C (dark plum burgundy)
-Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar – Matte: Black Dahlia, Vintage, Anita
I’m leaning toward the OCC lip tars because the colors are gorgeous and they are vegan/cruelty free! I think I will also purchase the anti-feathering white lip liner they sell too to as the base of the lip tar. As a note, you apply the lip tar with a brush, which they provide when you buy the product. The lip tar starts off as liquid and then dries on your lips and become matte.
