It's very black, and the brush is super skinny for precise lining. It's about $2.99 in drugstores and I will never purchase any other liner again!"

Bold Lipstick 16 of 26
"The NYC UltraMoist LipWear in Mahogany. It's such a rich, vampy color that is perfect for this season's bold lip trend.

I would definitely suggest exfoliating your lips and adding balm before applying, though."
