Back in February I purchased The Lip Bar Dark and Stormy Lipstick (along with Noir). Today I wanted to share Dark and Stormy with you because it’s gorgeous. The Lip Bar is cruelty free and their products are vegan.

Lip Bar lipstick in Dark & Stormy
The packaging for this lipstick line is sort of large and clunky, but I do find the cage design to be cute. It definitely stands out in my collection of mostly round lipstick bullets.
I was sad to find out that apparently Dark & Stormy was LE and is no longer available. One thing I’m really tired of is companies making products and then just a few months later they’re gone. This is one of the things that irks me and will keep me from purchasing from a company in the future. There have been a few indie companies that came out with products, hounded me for a review, and by the time I got my review up they’d discontinued the products.
The formula was really comfortable, pigmented and creamy. I wore the lipstick for 4 hours before removing it. I kept this look pretty simple and tried to focus on glowing skin. I definitely love deep charcoal grey lipsticks like this one! You can recreate this lipstick by mixing OCC Tarred and Sebastian pencils. I would definitely purchase from the Lip Bar again in the future.
Edit: This shade is coming back for Fall 2015!
What do you think of Dark & Stormy? Do you like deep grey lipsticks?
