Taylor Swift's New Dark Lipstick Look Has Twitter In A Frenzy
Ah yes, the time has come for a new Taylor Swift revenge single. Opinions on "Look What You Made Me Do" are varied, as are thoughts on Taylor's 15-second teaser for the single. But here's one cold hard fact: Taylor Swift's new dark lipstick look has Twitter ablaze.
The singer wore a dark shade for the album cover, and a deep oxblood for the new "Look What You Made Me Do" teaser trailer. Both are a pretty major departure from her signature retro red, signaling a shift in Swift's image.
But the star's new lipstick look is pretty much as divisive as her new single. Half of Twitter seems to be rolling their collective eyes at Swift's new Hot Topic lipstick phase, while the other half is running out to the aforementioned Hot Topic stock up on the stuff.
Here's what the fans have to say about the bold beauty move.
Some Teased Taylor For Her New Look...
"NO BANGS, DARKER LIPSTICK, LET'S DO THIS." -Taylor Swift announcing a new era— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) August 23, 2017
she threw on black eyeliner and dark lipstick and suddenly the "old taylor swift is dead." 🙄— E. (@edwnmndz) August 25, 2017
taylor swift really out here putting on dark lipstick and pretending she's edgy and jaded now— Michelle (@vacationgoth) August 25, 2017
If Taylor Swift is even wearing a DARKER shade or red lipstick now, we know it's serious— not great, bob! (@geeequinn) August 23, 2017
"The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Because she's dead."
... Though Many Are Here For The Makeover
LWYMMD makes me wanna put on blood red lipstick, wear all black and open the chamber of secrets for all the enemies of Taylor Swift— G (@TweetingForTay) August 25, 2017
I need the lipstick that @taylorswift13 is wearing in the Look What You Made Me Do video. And her hair stylist— Denise Wengert (@DeeWengert) August 25, 2017
With all the snake emojis flying around, Taylor should take that Chamber of Secrets tweet and run with it.
Some Called Out The Look For Its Hot Topic Leanings...
So from what I gather, Taylor Swift finally discovered Hot Topic?— Carli Velocci (@velocciraptor) August 25, 2017
She's acting like a teenager who thinks she's all hardcore cuz she wears dark lipstick and went to a Green Day concert once. #TaylorSwift— Samantha Talavera (@sjtalavera) August 25, 2017
So I guess this is the Taylor Swift equivalent of locking herself in her room & listening to Type O Negative as she tries on black lipstick?— Lissa Reed (@lissareedbooks) August 25, 2017
To be fair though, who didn't go through a brief phase where they thought Hot Topic was cool?
While Others Love The Goth Makeover
This new Taylor Swift song is making me want to wear some grungy flannel and black lipstick.— Molly Wied (@mollifers) August 25, 2017

Say goodbye to 'cherry lips and crystal skies', because Taylor Swift is a goth princess on her new album cover for… https://t.co/yCmGUjO5bP— Luca Forzin (@Luca_Forzin) August 23, 2017
Goodbye forever, "cherry lips."
And last but not least?
Some Fans Want A Makeup Line
@taylorswift13 If you planning on releasing new perfume, please make lipstick too. I'M DEAD FOR YOUR LIPS— tayn | REPUTATION (@darkestswiftiss) August 25, 2017
The old Taylor would have done well partnering with a cutesy brand, like Too Faced or Benefit. The new Taylor, though? Kat Von D all the way.
