I got a black lipstick for my Wednesday Addams costume but the lipstick isn't pigmented very well. Which is what I get for going to Walmart for this lipstick. Like when I put it on, I can still the pink of my lips. Do I just put on the lipstick, powder it, apply more, and repeat until I'm happy with it?

Why don't you get a new lipstick? There's still time until Wednesday and it's not expensive.1

I feel like I literally bought the same exact lipstick you did a few years ago for my costume because the same thing happened to me. It was so cheap and super waxy, it didn't even feel like real lipstick.. just more like a candle they'd put a bit of food coloring on.
Basically I just applied like 10 coats of the stuff until I got more color out of it. Honestly unless you plan on regularly wearing black lipstick, spending 15$ on a quality tube isn't worth it. It's just one night, you can totally deal.1
