i love lipstick queen

27/02/2013



my first ever product sent to review was lipstick queen (you can read it here) and although i think you can see how much i've grown as a blogger since then, it's still a brand i am interested in and love. after being sent this not too long ago, after trying it i hopped onto the lookfantastic website and i'm now currently uhm-ing and ah-ing to buy a sinner opaque lipstick too! what striked me the most about the product was how amazing the packaging was. the colour really does make me feel like a lipstick queen. out of everything the extra detail on the inside makes all the difference to me. poppy king who designed this lipstick i think her logo is amazing. one of my favourite artists is rennie mackintosh and it just reminds me of his designs! i suppose to all of you though the most important thing i need to talk about is the lipstick, right? sorry for getting a little distracted in my own babbling. i think the consistency of the lipstick is perfect for the colder days as it's incredibly moisturising, so if you're having a flaky lip day which i seem to be having quite regularly at the moment you won't have to worry when wearing this. i know some people will say the price tag is a little high but for me i think the quality shines through. i bought hue from MAC after several great reviews in the past which i'd say is quite similar with this lipsticks finish, however it's the worst lipstick i could have ever bought. it highlighted all the imperfections in my lips when it's supposed to do the opposite and make them look better, and it had the worst staying power. the shade is perfect to just add a little tint to the natural colour of your lips, great for when you are creating a bold eye look. i've definitely been reaching for this regularly just because it's so great for everyday use and only requires maybe one top up. cannot recommend enough.

finally, i have some great news i'm going to the beauty bloggers meet up on the 7th of april in manchester! i'm so excited as i've already got my hotel booked so it's 100% on the cards for me. i can't wait to put names to faces so if you're going too please let me know. x

  17. Such a beautiful color.
    When you say, it has a very similar finish to mac Hue, how do you mean?
    I´ve heard it is quite sheer, and Hue covers my natural lip color.
