Gothic inspiration: The Black lipstick Trend


Lancome’s new artistic director for makeup, Aaron de May, has created
 a  limited set edition  that’s scheduled to launch in November.
The set, which is inspired by a pair of Louboutins includes 
a red lipstick (Pita Red) and a sparkling lip gloss in Black (Piha Black).
You can wear the products separately or slick the lipgloss on
 over the lipstick to achieve a multi-dimensional dark lip.


Also in mid-september, YSL Gloss Pur Black is described as  a sparkle-free

 lipgloss that’s “transparent, yet intense.”

This gloss was wore in Yves Saint Laurent: Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear: a very classic and elegant look

 with white skin and black lips from the gothic look inspired by

 Louise Brooks haircut, Punk-Rock and Batcave make-up.

Urban Decay Lipstick in “Apocalypse” 








One of myspace friend the lovely and elegant Euridice is a great source of inspiration.

I love her pale skin look with black retro eyes mixed with vampire burgundy inspiration.
Her look is definitively more modern them the goth black eyes.

I wonder dear readers, if you will fall for 
this Gothic black and darker make-up inspirations?
