5 Deliciously Vampy Lipsticks
These are five deep, dark, and unabashedly vampy lipsticks that will add a whole lot of drama. I love pairing a really dark lip with nearly naked eyes–just inky black mascara and taupe eyeliner.

Dolce & Gabbana Lust Lipstick
Dolce & Gabbana Evocative Beauty: Lust
Dolce & Gabbana Lust Classic Cream Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a dark, purpled berry with very fine, barely-there violet micro-shimmer. It has a glossier finish than many of Dolce & Gabbana’s other Classic Cream lipsticks, actually! It almost looks like a lip stain, because it has some sheerness. I found that this particular shade was more prone to bleeding, and I don’t often find lipsticks to bleed–but the slicker feel of the formula combined with the dark color proved otherwise.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Cream Lipsticks wear an average of four hours on me, but this shade is pigmented and deep enough that I get around five and a half. It is heavily scented with rose, but I mostly smell it in the tube, not so much when worn.
