This is all the fault of En Vogue.
Black lips were the next big thing for fall 08, so that means that us mere mortals will be seeing it at our local makeup counter for more than just halloween this year.
Haute Macabre spilled the beans on MAC's plans for black this fall; creme lipstick, special brushes, 18 shades of black?
Last year the big deal was YSL's pur gloss in black (it's soooooo dark, I love it), and there will probably be copies of this black lip gloss on the shelves come september.
(it was halloween... I promise)
