New York Street Beat: The Bold and The Beautiful

When models boldly marched down the Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2008 Runway in black glossy lips we were a bit skeptical that the trend would catch on. Fast forward a few months and guess what – that YSL Pur gloss? Finito. Nada. Gone!

Black is the new red, and bold lips are being spotted all about town.

Though it’s hard to see in the photo, the gal on the right is one of the lucky few that grabbed the black gloss before it disappeared from store shelves – and we have to admit we’re impressed, she pulls it off without looking costumey.

If you’re not quite so bold then the classic red on the left just might unleash your inner siren.

i LOVE the look of dark lipstick. i've only worn it once on halloween, but the tube is still waiting patiently in my make-up drawer.
