Covering up darker or pigmented lips can be a little difficult, so we bring to you 10 shades that work really well on dark lips! And before you go on to buy these beauties, remember to a couple of things! Firstly, avoid sheer lipsticks and lip colours. Secondly, look for intense colour and high-pigmentation when choosing a lipstick.
