A nod to the ’90s goth girl, this seasons lipstick trend looks sultry and sophisticated when paired with a rosy complexion. Intense, near-black lips on the runways at Giles and Emanuel Ungaro led the pack, fading (just a touch) to bold berries at Marchesa. Translate the trend to a posh pout that’s wearable with these luscious lipstick picks.
