product review - lipstick queen

04/01/2013



i'm a huge fan of trying to be experimental with lip colours. however with my skin tone i always thought i was best suited to red or nudes shades. as a result of this, even though i would buy them, would shy away from wearing oranges and purples simply because i felt they didn't look right on me. one of the favourite lipsticks i own is 'vegas volt' by MAC. however as it is a bright coral shade i usually wear it only during the summer BUT i have now find my all year round alternative! lipstick queen is a new brand coming soon to HQ hair and lookfantastic and i was fortunate enough to be sent this product to try it out. they are similar in size to the clinique chubby pencils, meaning they are perfect for easy application. the lip pencil is a mixture of a gloss and a lipstick so you don't have to worry about using a balm beforehand as it's already moisturising. this is perfect for me as i have dry lips all year round and constantly have to worry about putting carmex on before applying a colour. the product also comes with a large pencil sharpener; which i think is great as i can never find them the right size. even so, i believe the vital question when reviewing a product is whether you would you buy it yourself, and for me the answer is yes. it's sheer but pigmented. it moisturises. you can use it all year round and it's going to last an extremely long time. i'm now lusting after another glossy pencil in the shade 'chase'.

  12. I love coral lipsticks! But I tend to stay safe with pinks. I've never heard of this brand before but will be sure to check them out, any lip product that is naturally moisturising is a plus for me. :)
