There’s a certain struggle for those of us who like black lipstick. Let’s face it, with jobs to go to and an assortment of night out makeup to try, it’s hardly going to become the wardrobe staple that we could justify spending $16+ on. On the other hand, finding a drugstore black lipstick that’s opaque and not completely crayon-like is no easy feat. Luckily, I think I’ve found the answer with Wet n Wild’s Pagan Angel.
Color: There’s no beating around the bush on this one. This is black. It has a slight sheen to it, and I like that it is mostly opaque on the first swipe.
Texture: The texture is a little thick, but otherwise pretty much what you think of when you think of a standard lipstick. It’s not drying, and might be a teensy bit moisturizing.
Application: Personally I think this fun to apply because it goes on so opaque. One swipe should give you even coverage. This doesn’t tend to cling to dry patches or sink into lines, which is a plus. For this and most dark colors, I recommend a lip liner, as going even the slightest bit out of your natural lip line will make your pucker look a little wonky.
Wear: Wear on this is not great. It’s not going to stand up to eating or drinking and in a few hours, it will be completely gone. And as you can tell from the picture, lipstick on the inner lip, which tends to be wetter, didn’t even hold up long enough for me to take the picture immediately after applying it.
Price: I got this for less than $2, but it’s listed on line for $3.50, so it probably depends on where you chose to buy/what sales are going on
So what do you think? Have you ever worn black lipstick? Would you give it a shot? Let me know in the comments below.
