Black Is Back: Channel Your Inner Goth Goddess With These Must-Have Black Lipsticks

Black Is Back: Channel Your Inner Goth Goddess With These Must-Have Black Lipsticks

For most of us, black is our favourite colour or at least one of the favourites. We all have the trusted LBD in our wardrobe and a basic black tee and leggings is a must for days when you’re feeling low. But surprisingly, our beauty vanity is devoid of this colour. Like really, black lipstick is not for everyone! But with the spooky season, aka Halloween around the corner, it is time we all think about giving this unconventional colour a try.

Black lipstick is definitely not for the fainthearted but you gotta admit, it looks hella cool in pictures. While we usually prefer dark shades such as wine, chocolate brown, merlot during the winters as they look aesthetically pleasing, it’s time to give the black lipstick a try too.   

If we have managed to convince you to try a black pout, check out these best black lipsticks that are calling out your name:
