Throwing on a black lipstick is a super simple way to get into the Halloween spirit, but what if we told you it’s a general must-have for your fall makeup collection? Some of our favorite celebs like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner have rocked the bold hue, but you don’t have to be famous to pull off a sultry black lip.

Black may be a bit edgy compared to other fall lipstick options, but it also makes for a bigger statement. Much like little black dresses, black lipsticks come in different variations and textures. Whether you like your lips matte, satin or velvet, there’s a black lipstick out there with your name written all over it.
