The Black Orchid Is This Season's "It" Color

Laura Mercier Lipstick

Dark tones like black orchid are in for spring! Celebs like Leighton Meester have worn dark shades on their lips to perfect the glam night-out look and now you can, too!

Black orchid isn't just a hot color for the season, it's also a beneficial ingredient in beauty products. This rare flower blooms only at night in exotic locations like Hawaii and Thailand, and its essential oils help hydrate your skin to leave it in excellent condition.

That's why it makes such a great lipstick, like this one from Laura Mercier ($20). It acts as a lip balm and a lip color to show off and maintain your lips. Remember: If you're going to rock this look, keep the rest of your makeup minimal and neutral. That way the cutie from American History won't be able to take his eyes off of you — In a good way!

Be sure to become a fan of Laura Mercier on Facebook!

Will you wear black orchid beauty products?
