If you’re thinking it’s about time for another installment of the Lipstick Bandit chronicles, you’re right! It is time. Last fall, I brought you Laura Mercier’s Courtisane, a shade that reminded me of “ripe apples and golden sunshine.”
Oh gawd, did I just quote myself? Must be running out of material.
This year, things are taking a turn for the vampy with Milani’s Black Cherry. In the tube, it’s a purple so dark it could almost pass for black. Swatched on the arm, it translates as a deliciously juicy shade of blackcurrant:
The intensity of the color means careful application is needed. No smearing haphazardly with this one unless you want people to think you just drunk-scribbled on your face!
Of course, you could always blot it with a tissue for lips that look like they’ve been stained with a grape popsicle (well, that but more attractive than I’m making it sound right now).
I’ve already reviewed the Milani lipsticks here, so click through for a brief overview of formula and wear time. Oh, and did I mention this tube of glorious vampiness will only cost you $5 at the drugstore? Get it. Get it now.
Take me home with you. I’m vampeh.
