A good black lipstick can be somewhat difficult to buy. I've tried two other black lipsticks before my recent buy. One of them was Hot Topic brand, and the other was a cheap Halloween lipstick. Neither of these were satisfactory. They were thick and difficult to apply. I found out that the main ingredient in the cheap Halloween lipstick was Castor Oil, which would explain the sticky, thick texture. When I found out Sephora carried Make Up Forever black lipstick, I was eager to try it.
I'm pleased to say this Satin Black was such a refreshing change to the other black lipsticks I've tried. It has a very smooth texture that glides onto the lips. It feels very comfortable to wear; this is important considering it's very opaque. It does have a nice satin finish as the name implies. As far as the wear goes, it's long lasting but it does stain a bit. The price for this lipstick was $19. It's a little expensive, but not unaffordable, and it's definitely worth the buy. Overall, I would definitely recommend this lipstick.
*Just as a note, Sephora's website has marked this lipstick as "Sold Out." I'm still able to find this lipstick in-store, so I'm thinking other Sephoras will carry it too. You can also find it on ebay, but the prices are marked up.
In a recent trip to Sephora, I was able to take home a sample of their "Glossy Gloss" in "Royal Icing." It looks only slightly shimmery in the photo, but it is a silver gloss on the lips. It's $10 for a tube. It is good quality and worth the money. It also looks great layered over black lipstick.
