Fall Trend: The (Budget-Friendly) Dark Lip

Hello Beauties!

As we're getting deeper into the fall season, I have been taking a gander at some of the latest fall trends.  I love exploring the trends in fashion as well as makeup and it looks like this year, the dark lip has returned.  Last year, I really embraced this look and since it's back again, I know just the lippies to grab from my stash.    In fact, two lipsticks I have in particular were the first to come to mind and the great part is you can get BOTH for $4.



If you saw my review of Wet 'n Wild Mega Last Lipsticks, then these colors will be no surprise to you.  The two colors I'm referring to are Cherry Bomb and Raivin' Raisin.


Cherry Bomb:  Deep, Plum/Red  

Raivin' Raisin:  A lighter purple.

I love both of these shades, but Cherry Bomb is my personal favorite!  These colors are definitely in style and with Wet 'n Wild, they are always affordable and long lasting.

Are you into the dark lip trend?

  1. I love this trend. I'm just afraid of buying the wrong colour lipstick to match my skin tone. I've never actually bought lipstick. What tips do you have?

    1. Hey Audrey! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I definitely think lipstick can be worn by any woman and the great thing about women of color is that we can wear a variety of shades. I think great colors on you would be peachy nudes, plum, brick red (like Cherry Bomb) and deep orange. I would also invest in lipsticks that last awhile. I love Wet & Wild because they literally do last at least four hours on your lips.

  2. I don't wear lip stick BUT I keep hearing good thing about wet and wild. I might pick up a few since they are buy one get one free. I guess it never hurts to play in makeup every once in a while. I love the Raivin' Raisin on you!

  13. Oh I really love those colors! You are making me want to go out to CVS today! I saw a makeup guru on youtube also do the cherry red lipstick look for this fall and because of this blog post I am even more inspired to go pick one of these up.

  15. For a very long time, I was afraid to try darker bold lips. Once I did get into it though, there was no stopping me. I think I own most of what you mentioned...I love the trend!

  20. I actually just got into the pinks. I've been so afraid to try this because my lips are so full but these colors are enticing me to do so. And Wet n Wild is definitely affordable enough for me to try it without breaking the bank.
