The Lipstick Queen

Happy new year!

I am completely aware that I am very late to the game on this but nevertheless, I hope your 2018 has begun with a positive start and is becoming the year you were hoping for. I have abandoned my blog (since Halloween to be precise) as I have been far too busy and enjoying some much needed time with my girlfriend. However, I am back and ready to get into the swing of things.

I have missed blogging oh so much but decided it was best to come back when I was ready to wholeheartedly jump in!

Today I am talking about something that I believe is fairly new (and very exciting!). A brand called ‘Lipstick Queen’. I had never heard of it before but I was given many a piece for Christmas and I think it is so different to anything I use I thought the old blogging space would be interested.

Can we just take a moment to adoreeeeee this packaging. I am absolutely obsessed with it. It is pretty simple but so effective. All the textures are sleek and velvety and the logo is consistent. Yes, even if the products weren’t amazing, the marketing is absolutely phenomenal. Let’s jump right in…

The Oxymoron Matte Gloss in the shade ‘Minor Crisis‘. IT IS A CRISIS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS! Slight exaggeration, sorry… But seriously, this lip gloss is like no other. Some how it appears and goes on as a matte lipstick. Then, as if by magic, wears like a glossy superstar. I have never had a lipstick that makes my lips look so shiny and photoshopped perfect. Honestly, this was the one I was least excited by but most impressed with. A massive thumbs up… and the colour is gorgeous. It is a dark berry nude… as are all of my lip shades. What can I say, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.

The Famous Last Words Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘See Ya‘ (oh my god I love these names). This one is amazing. I like this one because it does exactly what it says on the tin. This brand is quite exciting- it is one for colour changing lipsticks and fun, inventive cosmetics. However, if you want to try out the brand but not a massive fan of the crazy products, then go for this one. They come in classic colours and it is a wonderful texture.

 

The Frog Prince duo. So these are a colour changing lipstick and creme lush duo. Let us start with the lipstick- it changes with the pH of your skin to create the perfect pink tone for you. YES YES AND YES. I never wear pink lipstick, ever, so I was a bit dubious if it would suit me. But this is one of those shades where it is your lip colour… but better! I love this lipstick and it is perfect when a bold lip just will not do or doesn’t suit the vibe of the event. The creme blush is also a dream. Theres two ways to use this. One way is underneath powder (on top of foundation) to give a really natural pink glow that can be built up with powder blusher! I have worn it this way a couple of times and it has just made my make up and face feel more alive. Another way is to put it on with a BB cream or face tint and have a ‘no make up’ make up look! It is natural but very effective. The two products together are a match made in heaven.

Finally, Lipgloss in the colour ‘Jean Queen‘. It is no secret that I live in denim. Denim jeans, red denim, green denim, denim shorts, denim skirts. I love it all. So when I was given this over Christmas I was extremely intrigued to see if it is the ultimate jean partner. I can confirm, it is a lovely subtle dark red that compliments all of your jean friends. I have only worn this a few times (because my goodness I have a lot of lipstick to be loving! No complaints here) and every time I do I feel very coordinated!

So there you have it… my new obsession. You can find them on Lookfantastic and spacenk or their own website! They have a good instagram page as well to keep up with all their new products. I adore them and I hope you do too!

Let me know what you think

    Nice to see a post from you! 🙂
    I’ve not tried anything from Lipstick Queen but I’ve heard lots of great things. I’ve been interested in the Frog Prince shade for ages – I love colour changing things. 😀
