Don't be afraid of the dark.
Black lipstick works on the fashion runways - and on the occasional rock goddess like Karen O - but it's tough to pull off in real life. And while there are deep purple and black berry options, a truly bewitching lip is hard to find.

Urban Decay gives it their best shot with the new Lip Junkie, a new line of gloss hitting stores this month. Their darkest color, Perversion, is a sorcery mix of black, gray, blue, and purple that turns lips into a truly shady pout.
The gloss also has a tiny bit of plumper, in case you're looking for maximum effect. And though it's filled with sparkles, you can't see any glitter when it goes on your lips - so the effect is more Cauldron Chic than Pixie Punk.
And if you're still not convinced? Lip Junkie comes in other colors, including the way more conventional pink - although, this being Urban Decay, it's called "Peroxide."
