5 Deliciously Vampy Lipsticks

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.

What’s YOUR favorite vampy lipstick?

I loooove deep lipsticks, especially for fall/winter!
It can be somewhat of a higher-maintenance look, but I think it’s worth it.
Pale, wan, “nude” lips are getting veddy old, in my opinion.

I am extremely pale (cool-toned) with naturally pink lips so most of these shades unfortunately look too dark on me. Not black necessarily (I love black lippie!) but just an odd dark brown color.

MAC Diva is my favorite vampy lipstick. I like MAC Dubonnet for a nice daytime vampy lip too.

I seriously love vampy lips. Although some dislike the contrast, I like them against my pale skin. I loved the mattenes from the Style Black and Cult of Cherry collections, as well as the Chanel ones from the “Les Noirs” collection. I keep holding out hope for a gorgeous, dark Rouge G one of these days…

These are so beautiful! Vampy lipsticks are a little too much drama for me so I use Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Jesse. Its kind of a sheer vampy gloss to me. So awesome!!

It gets no Vampier than MAC Prince Noir, I love that lippy so much and I’ve got my eye on KVD Foiled Love Lipstick in Oh My Goth that one looks fantastic for holiday parties.

Seriously these are vampy!!!:
Chanel Rouge Coco No. 29 Ballet Russe.
Laura Paige No. 130 Plum Spice
Wet’n’Wild No. E522A Dark Wine

DuWop Twilight Venom.
Bourjois Lipstain in Praline Dis Moi Oui

Dior Addict Lipstick No. 624 FΓ©line
Bourjois Lovely Brille No. 10 Cocktail des cerises

These are all used by me, and I have great experience with them all. But it’s also because vampy-purple-dark-rosy-colours suit me very well πŸ™‚
