If you want in on the super dark lip trend of the moment, survey says burgundy may be the most universally flattering hue of them all. As makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor notes, "Burgundy is one of those rare colors that you can apply without taking your skin tone into account. It's so deeply saturated, that it's more about creating beautifully sculpted lips than anything else." Here, a few of our favorites.
