Make Up Forever Black Lipstick

source
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.

If you're interested in buying a black lipstick, purchase it while you can; it won't be around forever.

  1. I love the more brown toned black lipstick-- like what it seems to be in the last photo. My skin tone and the size of my lips make wearing black lipstick more misses than hits lol. It looks really great on you however!

    1. Black lipstick is really difficult for anyone to wear. I'm not so sure how well I pull it off, but it's more of something to wear for special occasions.

  2. I think you pull that off marvelously! Unfortunately, I've got rather large lips, so any sort of lipstick makes me look ridiculous, but you look stunning :)

  4. Morgana cryptoria makes the absolute best black lipstick. It applies completely opaque and it's a true black. It lasts all day on me, I just reapply it after eating. I'm so happy with it, she has other great colors too~
