Unless I’m roped into a group costume at work, you won’t catch me in these streets wearing a Halloween get-up. My reasoning is hardly profound—I’m just lazy and one of those people who almost always waits until the last minute. I learned my lesson years ago while standing in a Party City line for a couple’s costume that would sell out before I got to a cashier. Unless I’m thinking way ahead, the stress-free moves are as follows: find the best black lipstick, swipe on a cat eye, and call it a day.

Of course, not all lip formulas are created equal. When I’m going for a dark color that I want to last, a matte finish usually wears the best. Liquid formulas and satin finishes aren’t necessarily off the table either; it really just boils down to personal preference. For instance, while some of us want a true black, others may want their’s with a blue undertone or shimmer. Whatever the case, these options prove that black is more versatile than meets the eye and more importantly, that you actually have options.
