The Vampy Fall Lippie Wardrobe

As cliche as it is, every year around this time we find ourselves whipping out the darker, more vampy lipsticks. Don't know the inclinations that means for our psyche, but I do know dark lippies look really good. Well, needless to say, I have accumulated a ton of deeper shades in my lippie collection, but I thought I'd narrow it down to my top five know, just in case you wanted to take a walk on the dark side (sorry, that sounded a lot cooler in my head).

My Top Picks

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Berry - For those of you who aren't ready to take the plunge into the world of ultra-dark lippies, this is a good start. Melted Berry is a deeper berry shade with very flattering pink undertones.
LA Splash Lip Couture Waterproof Liquid Lipstick in Vampire - Now if you need a formula that will not budge, this is definitely the one for you. Personally, I'm not a fan of the scent, but I can look past it because of the shade. This is not just your run of the mill deep red, this liquid lipstick contains micro-shimmer throughout that gives it a semi-metallic finish. However, due to its waterproof nature, I'd recommend wearing a lip balm underneath.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu - An iconic shade that always seems to be sold out at Sephora, Train Bleu is the deepest a plum shade can get. What I like is that the formula is very soft, smooth, and pigmented. The pencil format is convenient for lining and filling in the lips, as well as for on-the-go purposes.
NYX Intense Butter Lip Gloss in Black Cherry Tart - If you're feeling like a little daredevil, a glossier dark lip is right up your alley. Don't be fooled by the fact that this is a gloss, the Intense Butter Gloss collection from NYX packs a punch in the color department. I love this particular shade because somehow the deepness makes the purple more wearable in my opinion.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Potion - A step below wearing straight up black on your lips, Potion is a deep dark violet shade (purple with blue undertones). While it may not be the most daytime appropriate lippie, it does look good for a night out or even Halloween.

Vampy lips are by far one of my favorite fall trends to pull off, but I must admit that it makes me look really pale. Not really an issue a little self-tanner can't fix. But enough rambling. Now that you know my top five, I'd like to know yours. C'mon, cough it up!
