How to get the perfect Black Glossy Lip: Review & Swatches PART 1

As requested, here is a review video purely dedicated to black lip gloss! So I'll show you three black glosses complete with hand and lip swatches with my thoughts and favourite black lip gloss.

Check out Part 2 of the perfect Black glossy lip video which will show you different ways to get a black glossy lip!


Lip Glosses Featured in the video

Illamasqua Intense Gloss in Repulse $26.77 7mL for 0.2 fl.oz. from Illamasqua here

Some other tips...
With a translucent black lip gloss or one that isn’t opaque enough for what you want, you can apply it over a coloured lipstick to darken the colour. For example you could add a light black lipgloss over a lipstick for a vamped up lip.

It also works the other way, you can dab on the lipgloss lightly and make a highly pigmented lipgloss give softer effect. Check out this lip tutorial where I lightly used the Illamasqua Intense gloss for a darkened berry kinda lip here.

Also you can mix a loose black eyeshadow with the non-pigmented black gloss and make it more opaque and as dark as you like. And you can even add some sparkle to it. If you mix Stella loose chromalust pigment from Sugarpill Cosmetics you could add some darkness and also some light glitter throughout your custom lipgloss.

Other Black lip glosses I haven't tried but could be ok...
