This season I have been lusting over dark lipsticks that have featured in every magazine I pick up. Always more of a subtle lip gloss kinda girl I usually shy away from such a statement coloured lip, however, I decided now was the time to bite the bullet and jump head (or lip) first into this make up trend. Usually, if I was going to buy a lipstick I would spend a bit of money on it so that I could make sure it would be a really long lasting yet moisturising product but, since this was an impulse buy that might be relegated to the back of a cupboard after one use I decided to go with a cheaper 'throw away' purchase.
After turning my hand into a rainbow of burgundy and plum coloured swatches, I finally chose the Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry from Superdrug for £7.49. It's a perfect mix of red wine and purple berry and was dramatic enough to pull the look off without looking like an extra for The Vampire Diaries.
Cess and Me
As the drinks began to flow I forgot all about 'lipstick etiquette' until my fifth Jagar Bomb when it dawned on me to have a quick bathroom/beauty break! By some kind of miracle the lipstick had stayed strong AND stayed put, even still I felt the need to top it up, wait - minus the lip brush!! I don't know if it was the alcohol that had given me some dutch courage or what, but somehow I managed to reapply without causing a scene!
So, all in all my trip over to the dark side had gone without a hitch! I would definitely buy other shades from this range of Revlon lipstick as it was so creamy and pigmented with great staying power. I can now officially say that I am a big fan of darker coloured lips and long may darkness reign.
