Dark Lips: Va-va-Voom or Vampiress?
With the popularity of the “Twilight” series by Stephenie Meyer, it is no surprise that the Dark Lip Trend is here. Blood red burgundies are showing up all over in fall releases of many cosmetic lines. These are some of the products being featured in the 2008 fall catalog of Sephora. Deep liners, glosses and lipsticks from Urban Decay, Bare Escentuals, Benefit, Clinique, MAC, and Smashbox.
Sephora writes, “This fall, take a turn to the dark side,” followed by the statistic that 78% of those polled at the Sephora blog site love these moody hues.
These dark wine shades were popular in the mid-90’s. I remember my cousin wearing this shade of lipstick for her wedding ceremony. Not completely horrible, but noticeably very dramatic and easily dated, and I can still remember that she wore it. My opinion is that these shades will look incredible on some, particularly those who pull off any dramatic look (Mo, DecoDiva) and for the rest of us, yikes! It is what it is, a trend.
I’d like to ask you, what do you think of the Dark Lip Look? Va-va-vooom or Vampiress?
And, if you are a”Twilight” series fan, Edward or Jacob?
