Today’s beauty trend seems all about the more natural look, aka the no-makeup makeup look, and with it came the rise of nude lipsticks. While the natural shades are an essential to your beauty arsenal, we say don’t be afraid to amp things up and add more drama to your look! One way to do that is by making a statement through your lips. This Halloween season is the perfect time to have fun with your looks, so for the meantime, set aside your bright lip stains and sheer tinted balms, and go all out and paint your lips a dark, rich shade. Here are some lippies that’ll give you gorgeous dark lips that’s more spectacular than spooky—and totally wearable even after Halloween. After all, it’s completely fine if you want to be more experimental with your looks.

Nars’ audacious lipstick in this deep burgundy color with a creamy texture and luminous finish is sure to last you through the night. It’s a sure win if you’re going for a more mature, seductive look. Available on Lazada.
Mac Satin Lipstick in Cyber
This lipstick formula has a soft cushiony feel on the lips, and just the right sheen finish, which makes this dark purple lippie totally wearable without it feeling too goth so you can wear it even on the day. Available in Glorietta 3.
NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania
We love this lip cream by Nyx because it’s super-lightweight and feels velvety smooth on the lips. Its matte finish is also durable. Its sweet scent doesn’t hurt either. Their rich Transylvania shade will make your lips stand out. Available on Zalora.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip in Uninvited
Nothing can make you feel more bad ass and ready to take on anything, as putting on this rich black shade by Fenty Beauty, which they described as “bad b*tch black.” It has a one stroke, watery formula that’s long-lasting so your tube can last you for months—unless of course, you’re obsessed and make it your go-to shade. In which case, we understand. We’re obsessed, too. Available on Sephora PH.
