I don't like dark lipsticks; but I've found myself warming up to them recently (I'm sure it has everything to do with watching Kat Dennings in 2 Broke Girls with her dark lips constantly, I LOVE this show, it has so many laugh out loud moments for me, if you're looking for an easier light hearted comedy then do check it out).
While on a trip to Boots, I picked up one of the Sleek Matte True Colour Lipsticks in Vamp (yes selected Boots now stock Sleek, hurray!), and I have been so impressed. The colour is out of my comfort zone; I am a nudey pink/ nudey brown/ nudey nude/ pinky nude, pinky brown -you get the idea- kinda girl. But it looks great and feels really great. What I really like about this lipstick is the texture of it, once on it sort of feels and looks like part of your lips. Its a matte texture but not at all drying and it lasted a good few hours on me. They can be picked up from Boots or Superdrug or Sleek and retail for £4.99. A great value lipstick.

I do look a bit grey due to awkward lighting in my room..
The colour Vamp has been touted as a dupe for Mac Diva according to LookAMillion, so if you're looking for a darker lip to venture away from your comfort zone or just like darker lipsticks this is a great one to try.
