Ever since Lorde hit the Grammy’s wearing dark, vampire-esque lips, celebs everywhere have been popping up with heavy plum lipstick. This goth-lite trend is perfect timing, since it goes fabulously with midwinter pale skin (very Wynona Rider in Beetlejuice). Of course, some celebs look more Manson than others. Kylie Jenner and Rihanna manage to look uber-intense in the look, while Selena Gomez and Katy Perry seem to be playing dress up with their depressed girlfriend’s gloss.
Either way, we’re so into it. The best part? There are a ton of shades on shelves that flatter all skin tones. If you’re fair to medium, try a neutral plum like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Goldpearl Plum. Darker tones look fabulous in a deeper eggplant, like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Black Plum.
