DARK MAT­TER

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

Al­ways wanted to try black lip­stick? The moody hue is newly ac­ces­si­ble, mak­ing an ap­pear­ance in mul­ti­ple col­lec­tions this sum­mer. For Katy Perry, it was a must-have in her de­but line for CoverGirl. “They’ve never had a black lip­stick,” says the singer, ad­ding with a smile, “I’m like, ‘Guys, it’s 2016. Every­body’s wear­ing black lip­stick!’” Look for mois­tur­iz­ing matte for­mu­las—Perry’s in­cludes shea, aloe and av­o­cado but­ters—that will stay put with­out crack­ing. “You can layer black lip­stick with other colours to add more depth,” says Veron­ica Chu, makeup artist for CoverGirl, should you be thinking that black lip­stick isn’t your ev­ery­day kind of look. “[It’s] a great way to make the most of your lip­stick col­lec­tion.”

From top: CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lip­stick in Perry Pan­ther ($11); May­belline New York Color Sen­sa­tional Loaded Bold Lip­stick in Pitch Black ($10). Been wear­ing black lip­stick since ’97? Grad­u­ate to Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lip­stick in Kale ($30) and Hard Candy Fierce Ef­fects Lip­stick in Night Queen ($5.98).

“Even if you don’t have time to do very much, pop a black lip­stick on and you’re still say­ing some­thing. You’re still mak­ing a state­ment that’s cool, edgy and dif­fer­ent.” – Katy Perry
