Double Layer is the way to go.
Manic Panic make-up often gets rather mixed reviews, some claiming it's the best make-up you will ever use, and others complaining about a lack of pigmentation. Manic Panic's Raven Black Lipstick is certainly bold and matte, however in a certain light, it kind of has like a very dark purplish color to it, which isn't much of a problem. To get the best results, you're going to need to put about two layers on, as the color of your lips is still visible after one application, but you'll find this is the same with just about every black lipstick. As always, it's highly reccomended you line your lips first and then fill it in with the color, and then concealing the area around your lips. A lip brush will DEFINITELY help.
Long lasting and brilliant color! You will get noticed in this lipstick!
My wedding anniversary is Paddy's Day and I always wear a costume for the Paddy's Day parade in Tampa. This year I wanted to try green lipstick again. I'd never had any success with any green lipstick before. It was always too sheer with not enough color popping through and it would always wear off immediately. I found Manic Panic green lipstick on ebay and purchased it much to my delight! The color was vibrant and very noticeable. I only had to reapply the lipstick twice. Once after dinner and once after I kissed my husband's cheek so he'd have a green kiss! I got compliments all night long and one girl marching in the parade wanted to know where I got the lipstick! I highly recommend this lipstick and I just hope they're making it next year so I can buy a new tube for Paddy's Day next year!Read full review
This is a great lipstick, vegan friendly, and not too costly.
The application of this lipstick is really smooth and creamy. It applies a bit transparent, but if you line you lips first and fill it in with a pencil it looks great (I have the black color). Especially if you don't want such a bold black color, line and fill with a dark red liner and it'll look almost like a blood red color. I also love that it's vegan! I really enjoy this lipstick, most black lipsticks are cheap, look too obnoxiously glossy, and even greasy, and are available only during halloween, Manic Panic did a great job on this! This is a great color for the fall in my opinion. The price wasn't too bad, I honestly wouldn't spend up to 10 bucks on a simple lipstick, but this has proved its worth.
Great Product, I will definitely buy again.
Actually a pretty great black lipstick. Goes on well, not too light, but also is not too thick or pasty like most cheap black lipsticks sold at Halloween time. If you like to wear black lipstick on a regular basis, not just for a costume, I'd highly recommend this brand.
one stop shop for alternative styles
Excellent application. Attains the desired effect for gothic, emo, punk, and general rocker styles. Also, the company is vegan so those who adhere to the humane treatment of animals would be pleased to support Manic Panic. Product stays on after a bit of smudging with little fade away. Clearly a good choice.
