Dressed To Kill in Black Lipstick

 For optimal viewing gratification please enjoy this video while perusing my post.

I'm super stoked  to be sharing my first submission for the Alternative Curves blog hop. Alternative Curves is an international community of blogger babes who have a quirky and unique sense of personal style. Once a month Alternative Curves bloggers push themselves to strange and unusual fashion extremes in a themed outfit challenge. This months theme is Black Lipstick. When I think of black lipstick the lyrics to Sharon Needles "Dressed to Kill" come to mind so I took inspiration from that song for this post.

Black eyes
Black lips
Black dye
Black hair
Black soul
Black blue, yeah
I'm dressed to kill
~ Sharon Needles

 My poison of choice when it comes to a black lip is Black Cat from Pretty Zombie Cosmetics. I'm totally addicted to liquid Matte lipsticks and find I wear them 99% of the time. I find the Black Cat lasts all day with minimal touch ups and next to no bleeding. Another awesome thing about Black Cat is the price, it's only $12 and lasts for months. A little of this product goes a long way. Black lipstick has improved so much from when I was a teen in the early 90s. Wet and Wild was the only black stick you could find back then and you had to stock up hard core at Halloween to keep you going the whole year. The product was horrid and transferred, bleed and faded super fast, but life was hard for the 90s goth.
