7 Best Black Lipsticks to bring out your Inner Goth
Whether you feel like spreading those witchy vibes or black lipstick is a staple in your everyday wardrobe, it can be difficult to find the perfect lipstick. It’s already hard enough with lighter shades. Still, when it comes to finding the perfect shade of black lipstick, you’re looking for a lipstick that has hyperpigmented color and quality staying power, so it doesn’t rub off at the beginning of your night.
Black lipstick also comes in different finishes, such as glossy and matte, and you have to be careful when you apply this lipstick. Black lipstick can be treacherous to use, but as long as you get the right lipstick and a precise applicator, you can build up your lip color gradually and avoid mistakes.
Here are the seven best black lipsticks for your Halloween festivities or your everyday goth lifestyle.
Wet ‘n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in Oh So Noir

This first lipstick is not only affordable, but it offers long-lasting staying power with high pigmentation. It has a buttery smooth application, and once it’s on, it stays in place. The best part is that it doesn’t feel heavy on your lips either.
Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Alien
The worst part about applying black lipstick is making mistakes, and the best way to avoid making mistakes in the application process is to pick a quality, precise applicator like the one that comes with the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream lipstick. This lipstick has the perfect applicator tool so that you can apply it perfectly the first time.

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Color Enhancing Lipstick in Noir

Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment in Paint it Black
There’s nothing worse than getting your black lipstick all over your teeth or smudging it across your face, and this Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment solves that problem. This pigment does not move! It stays in place, feels lightweight, and has opaque and matte coverage.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Midnight
ANASTASIA Beverly HillsANASTASIA Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick
If you favor bullet lipsticks, then you should invest in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Midnight. This formula has all the things you love about a liquid lipstick in a dry formula. It has an opaque and matte finish without the dryness, so it’s perfect for a person who prefers bullet lipsticks over the liquid options.
Lime Crime Velvetines Matte Liquid Lipstick in Black Velvet
Lime CrimeVelvetines Liquid Lipstick
Finally, the last lipstick on this list is Lime Crime Velvetines Matte Liquid Lipstick in Black Velvet. While this brand has been under some controversy before, it’s hard to deny the quality of this product. Lime Crime’s black lipstick has a long-lasting formula that doesn’t budge, shift, or smudge. It also has one of the deepest shades of black on the market.
Applying black lipstick isn’t just about the lipstick you purchase. It also has a lot to do with the application process you use. To apply your black lipstick properly, it starts way before you even pull out your lip color. Because dark lipstick amplifies any imperfections you may have on your lips, you need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips. You don’t have to utilize a lip liner, but it will give a much cleaner finish if you do.
Once you’re ready to apply your black lipstick, press your lips together so you can see your lips’ natural outline, and then start applying your lipstick from the middle, continuing outwards. Once you’ve applied your first coat, blot your lips on a towel, and then apply a second layer, so you have a long-lasting lip color. Optionally, you can dust your lips with a finishing powder just to set the look before you walk out the door.
Kylie x Grinch - Worth the Hype?
Review time!!! I just received the entire Kylie Cosmetics Grinch Collection in the mail this week & I want to break down each product and tell you what I loved and didn’t love. Palette: I’m not one that reaches for tons of colour usually but all the greens in this palette are gorgeous! There’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, and as usual, the shadows blend like a dream! The good thing about this palette is that there are still some neutral shades rather than just greens. I definitely appreciate the mixture of shades. Shadow Sticks: The Kylie shadow sticks are probably one of my favourite products they have ever released. They are so extremely pigmented, and so easy to apply. They’re basically fool proof, and they set as a shadow. If you haven’t tried them out, I highly suggest you do! In this collection we have a super pretty light shimmery green, light gold, and two rosy toned shadow sticks. Shimmer Eye Glazes: This product is insane. They are a super intensely pigmented eyeshadow that leaves the lids looking wet & dripping in glitter! One swipe of these on the lid is literally all you need for that intense shimmer. If you’re someone who loves super shimmery eyeshadow, I recommend giving the Kylie Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Glazes a try. This collection came with 2 shades: a minty turquoise green and a gold - & I’m obsessed and so happy to be adding these to my collection!! Olive Kyliner: My go to liquid liner is the black Kyliner, so i wasn’t surprised when i loved the easy application and long wearing quality of this olive Kyliner! The liner applies a lighter olive green and dries down to a deeper olive shade. It’s definitely not something I’d reach for everyday, although it’s definitely cute for the holidays or even for a pop of colour to a neutral eye! Blush: I am a huge fan of the Kylie Cosmetics Blushes as opposed to the other blushes I’ve tried from the brand this one had some shimmer in it! It’s quite similar to the NARS “orgasm” blush but with a stronger pink hue. I love the shimmer in it, it adds a pretty glow to the cheeks, perfect for the holidays.. or any day really :P Highlight: Def on theme, but probably my least favourite product in of the collection :( Don’t get me wrong, it’s super blinding and glowy. Although, once I applied to my face it showed off as very green. Personally I don’t want a green glow on my face! But hey, if that’s your vibe that’s cool! Definitely not a highlight I’d reach for everyday. Lip Kit: Obsessed. This red is EVERYTHING! This Lip Kit is one of the best reds I have ever tried. It has a matte finish and is extremely long wearing. I know it’s sold out but a similar shade would be “BOSS” by Kylie. Lipsticks: These shades are gorg for the holidays and I love the shade range! Long wearing & comfortable on the lips. High Glosses: Kylies high glosses are high shine, but very sticky! So if you’re not a fan of sticky glosses you won’t love these. These shades are perf for the holidays and everyday!

Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.
