When it comes to makeup it seems as if black lipstick is truly uncharted territory – only a few have been daring enough to try it out. We’ve all fawned over strangers bold enough to pull off the look on Tumblr or YouTube, and when we see our favorite celebrities give the powerful, yet mysterious shade a go we’re even more thrilled. But, only a few seal the deal and take their newfound glory to the streets for all to “ooh and aah” over.
However, it seems like more and more are cozying up to black lipstick – and not just to fulfill their Halloween costume look. Just like your favorite go-to little black dress, a black lip has surpassed the stamp of gothic and is becoming a true must-have for that chick who can’t get enough of noir.
Recently, CFDA’s proclaimed fashion icon Rihanna rocked a black lip to the unveiling of her forthcoming album, R8. Even still, this isn’t a first for the bad gal who always stays true to her eclectic and ever-evolving style.
