The Black Lip...Guess it's Better Than a Black Eye!

OK, all joking aside, what is up with this black lipstick trend? I wasn't going to blog about it because I didn't really think that it'd get very far. Most runway trends never translate to real life, but dark lips are all the rage right now.

I don't know if it's so popular because it's just plain out there, but brands are actually getting rave reviews on this trend. In fact, Lancome's version, Fever Gloss in Phia Black, already has a waiting list of customers at Bloomingdale's. Only 500 sets of this shade will be sold, retailing at $48.

If you really want some black lip gloss now, have no fear. MAC is selling Lipmix in black for a mere $11.50.

So what is your take? Valid beauty trend? Or, over-hyped look?

I actually want to hear that someone is going to purchase this shade of lipstick. While it's not for me, I have to admit that anyone who wears it has some courage, and a love for fashion.

i'd definitly not wear it. i can just see myself feeling overly self concious and covering my mouth with my hands while looking at people, as if i have some hidious pimple or something near my mouth. lol

For a party, why not. But if you don't have a strong style, this colour will look ridiculous on you !

I don't think that a black lip is a 'real-life' trend for the everyday person.

What's my personal take? I like it! It's strange, it's different, it's daring. Would I wear it? Sure, for Halloween or some over-the-top event.

Great post, girl. =)

I'm getting the Lancome but I expect it to be more red than black.
