Does Black Lip Gloss Work? You Be the Judge.

Big surprise, the black-lipped runway trend didn't exactly take off for Fall. Can't say I'm shocked, particularly because, really, everybody looks healthier with a little color. Still, it can't hurt to try a trend, right?

Judging by the way GiggleSugar shrieked and hid her eyes upon seeing my glossy coal lips, maybe it can. I had Le Métier de Beauté's Black Magic gloss on; it's rich, dense, pigmented and quite luxurious. But I don't think that vinyl-style lips are for me. What do you think?

No, this would make even the pearliest whites look ashen. Besides, sometimes even if something is trendy you have to think about whether or not your sweetie would want to kiss those lips. My guess is no.

Black lipstick/gloss has it's place. I personally will never be seen with black lips. Not my cup of tea. I like color. Then again, I don't like black nails either. I used to do black toenails in my early-mid teens but now... forget it. Black is only for eyeliners and mascara. Lol.

I don't think it looks good on anyone.

I actually kind of like it in a theatrical way, or if you were taking pictures for fun, but it's not something I'd see anyone leaving the house in.

I wore it back in the late 80's , but then again it went with my outfits. Never would wear it now, unless it was halloween

This looks good for runway and photography, but I can't see it in real life, hon.

Not so bad. I expected it to be lots scarier. I think you're wearing it fairly well considering it is black lipgloss. It almost works, just not in real life, more for fun. Cool pic, though.

For everyday normal wear, hell no. But like Bella said it would be fun to wear to a rock show or perhaps a private, play dress-up photo shoot or something. :P

Annie, someone should put that picture in a high-fashion magazine. You are seriously gorgeous.

To be honest, I think it really only "works" in the context of a "concept look" - like a costume or a photo shoot or something like that. Real life, real people? Not so much. Not that you aren't gorgeous, but that gloss... uufffff.

Looking at those lips, the word "kissable" doesn't come to mind. I'm not buying it!

i dont see anything wrong with it but i dont think i would like it on myself...and it really depends on how u wear it....sometimes dramatic lips can set a nice contrast

I think it looks good and could work for the right setting. Like certain bars or, as you said, a concert. It's a look that very few people appreciate though. And I bet men would HATE it.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. The funny thing is, Fab tried the gloss and loved it, so I've passed it along to her. I feel like maybe it would be fun to wear this color to a rock show, but I'm going back to my pinks and reds for everyday wear. :)
