My Favorite Dark/Bold Lip Products

Hey Everyone!

     Glitter Girl and I have a new obsession: bold lip colors. Not only do they photograph beautifully, but you can apply these pretty quickly to pull your look together. I would wear any of these with my neutral eyes look, or any other natural makeup. I swatched the color to the left of the product, so check those out as well!

My first pick is more of a darker lip, it is Mac's Morning Coffee lip pencil. This is a deep reddish-brown, and it will work with any skin tone. You could top this off with a sheer neutral gloss, or you could make this even deeper with something more opaque. This is a pro long-wear lip pencil, this seriously stays on all day without budging. I like to apply my EOS lip balm to the middle of my lip so I can smudge the pencil around more. This will also lighten the color up in the middle, creating a highlight.

If you are looking for a brighter lip, I love the Basic Red Chromagraphic Pencil. This is so opaque and creamy, the texture of it is incredible. This is a limited edition product, but most CCO's have it. This is more of a orange based red, so it is a nice change from the basic blue based red. Chromagraphic Pencil's are typically a Pro product, but they came out in the Mac For Fall Color collection last fall, so check it out at your nearest outlet!

 My favorite opaque red gloss is Cherry Shine from Sephora. This is a really deep ruby red with a hint of sliver shimmer to it, and this works for layering or on its own. This has SPF 8 in it, so it does include some protection. I love wearing this with a softer shimmery color on my lid and black liner, it is so simple and easy to do if you are in a rush.

Bright pink's can be really flattering on cooler skin tones, but Blossom by BH cosmetics is universally flattering! I love layering a sheer pink over this, you can customize it by putting your favorite sheer lipstick/gloss over it. The BH cosmetics lip liners are waterproof, so they will last throughout the day.

If you want a really bold, opaque, matte red, my favorite is the Tarte fiery Lipsurgence natural matte lip color. This delivers an opaque layer of color in one swipe, it is the perfect blue based red. I actually got to try this in one of the Sephora Beauty Insider Sets, and it has been one of my favorites ever since. This does have a chunkier, round tip, so make sure to use a brush around the edges for the most precise application.

My next favorite is not really bold or a darker color, but it is definitely unique! It is the NYX Black Label Lipstick in 165 Pewter. This is the strangest coppery bronze, but it is actually a really pretty sheer copper. I do not understand why this is called Pewter, the color is the complete opposite. Anyways, this is my favorite color when I want to add a sheer, bronze sheen.

My final deeper lip color is Too Faced Cougar Lipstick. This is a really deep metallic coppery reddish-brown, and it is a lot prettier then the complicated description makes it sound! This is a darker color, so I like to wear it as more of a sheer wash. I love the packaging on this, it feels really secure. I love wearing Mac's Love Nectar over this, the combined shimmer makes your lips look so much fuller.

These are my favorite lip colors of the moment! I really love experimenting with different colors in Fall, you can get away with deeper lip colors and still look put together. Make sure to follow if you haven't, and tell me in the comments what your go-to lip color is for transitioning into fall. Thanks for reading!
