I adore dark lips. It just gives my overall look a touch of mystery and alluring sophistication. For me, it's the easiest way to make a statement.

Nars' Rouge Tribal is one of my favorite dark lip shades at the moment. It's in gloss form, and you guys know that I'm not very fond of lipgloss. But I made an exception for this one because it's such a head turning color! Click READ MORE and check out my review, plus get tips on how to wear dark lips!

It comes with a small brush applicator. It works so well with the lipgloss' consistency.

Rouge Tribal is a beautiful burgundy color with flecks of gold glimmer. It is part of their Fall Color Collection for 2012. It has a semi- opaque finish. You can apply one or two layers for a just- bitten stain, or layer it on for a bolder finish. Its consistency is semi- sticky, yet feels lightweight when worn. Staying power is pretty good for a lipgloss: It's in a long wearing formula, and the color fades gradually whenever you use your lips--it doesn't get wiped off in an instant unlike other lipglosses.

However, it has a tendency to settle into fine lines, but I don't mind because it gives my lips a lovely 3D look.

Here's me wearing Rouge Tribal

It clings so well to my lips, but it doesn't dry 'em out. It even moisturizes them!


1. When you wear dark lip products, you are highlighting your lips. So make sure to tone down the rest of your makeup.
2. Find the right shade of dark lipstick for your skintone
3. Dark lips can wash you out since they're striking and bold on their own. Balance your look by emphasizing your eyes. Stick to neutral shades like black and brown because in general, they look good on almost all dark lip products.
4. Use a light shade of blush as bold and bright shades may clash with your lip color. Or better yet, just stick to contouring powders. Less is more.

Once you have mastered these basic steps, you can finally experiment with dark lips. I'll expound on these tips in a separate post. :)

I recommend this lipgloss because the color is unique and gorgeous! Totally perfect for fall! It's now out in all local Nars counters, so please check it out. :)
