I’ve always been curious to try deeper hues on my lips. Colors that look like dark chocolate or Merlot seem so enticing. Until now I was a bit hesitant, because I didn’t know if they would work for me. I associated really dark makeup with goth or a dominatrix-type woman. Not that I wouldn’t mind walking around wearing a black patent leather corset and carrying a whip, but I wasn’t sure that dark lips were right for me. Well, don’t knock it ’til you try it. I’ve finally discovered five hues that are rich and sultry without being too unapproachable.
