Battle of the Black Lipsticks!

In my opinion, not all black lipsticks are universal. They vary in shade, consistency, drying and how much they actually cover. I swatched the four black lipsticks that I own so you can see the differences and hear some pros and cons of each! Enjoy!

To be honest, I only have four different black lipsticks. I don’t really see a point in having a thousand of them. There’s Black Moon Cosmetics, Makeup Monsters, Melt Cosmetics and Sugarpill.
Here are the bottoms of the lipsticks. We have some described as extra matte and matte. 

I did lip swatches and an arm swatch of all these for you so you can see how different they are.

Here are the four for you. This was taken maybe five minutes after I swatched them so they could be fully dry. You can see how some are darker and lighter than the others in comparison.

Here are some lip swatches! We’ll go in the same order as they’re arm swatched! Yay!

This one is my favorite out of the four. It is a liquid matte. It smells like vanilla and is a thicker and less runny formula. It dries very fast and isn’t patchy. It lasts super long and is comfortable to wear and doesn’t dry out my lips.
This one does need two coats to cover fully. It takes time to dry and depending how even you apply it, it can be patchy. It removes pretty well and does have a nice matte finish.
I love this one. To be honest, I think the lipsticks look better than the liquid mattes. This is with two coats but feels non-sticky, is even and doesn’t look super obnoxious. It also smells like vanilla!
This one is a bit lighter than the others. I did use two coats but has a very nice feel and wear to it. It also smells like orange cream! Yeah! This one is nice and subtle, where it looks almost natural.

There you have it! I would have to say that out of all of these, Melt’s Bane is my absolute favorite. It is matte, not sticky or drying, smells great and long lasting.
