Okay, fine — I only rounded up 7shades of dark-as-night lip cover, but “50 Shades” makes for such a better title, doesn’t it? As nights get cold and spooky, I like to sport a lip so dark it would make Dracula shiver. There’s kind of nothing that makes me feel sexier.
Here are seven great shades you can try for smoky, dark, vampy lips of your own:
Paint it Black 1 of 8
Go goth, go vamp, or just go nuts.

Matte Black Dahlia 3 of 8
From Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics comes this Lip Tar, with high opacity and impressive longevity.
Black Tie Optional 4 of 8
From Space SK is this sheer black overlay for your favorite lip color. Watch bright turn smoky and slink off into the night.
Semi-Goth 5 of 8
Ardency Inn Punker brings this high shine lip pencil that works as an all-over color.
