I don’t know what it is about lipstick, but I kind of, sort of, well LOVE IT! I have always liked make-up but as I’ve gotten older I no longer wear a ton of it. One of the few items I still wear religiously is lipstick. I remember years and years ago my mother once said to me “Go put some lipstick on, you look dead.” Not the most flattering comment she has ever given me, but still it helps emphasize my need for a little color in my life. I do tend to be rather fair skinned and with my (now) gray hair, I can look a bit washed out if I don’t add a subtle color to my lips.

So when I recently took a trip to Ulta I headed straight to the makeup department. That is where I was introduced to Lipstick Queen. I had never heard of this line before and still don’t really know much about it. I do understand it was started by a woman named Poppy King from Australia who couldn’t find the right lipstick and instead decided to make her own. Well, I have to say  I love her lipstick (at least the ones I’ve tried so far). I have only decided to purchase 2 lipsticks so far, but I’m going to add at least one more to my collection by asking Santa for it this Christmas.

Jean Queen

Jean Queen is actually the second Lipstick Queen lipsticks I purchased. After buying Saint Pinky Nude I decided to do a little research on Lipstick Queen and found out about Jean Queen. It is supposed to be the perfect color to wear with blue jeans and is considered appropriate for all skin tones. Although the color looks rather intense it is actually very sheer. For me that is a must as I like to look a bit more natural with my lipstick color. I do find the color to be really appealing and natural looking while still offering a kick to my less than colorful lips.

Saint Pinky Nude

When I first encountered Lipstick Queen I saw this really lovely nude color. It was Saint Pinky Nude. The sample tube was labeled Pinky Nude and I kept seeing Saint Pinky Nude and Sinner Pinky Nude on the boxes. Took me a few minutes to realize they were 2 separate incarnations of the same color. Saints, in the Lipstick Queen line, are sheer colors while Sinners are more matte and opaque. As I said above I like a sheer lipstick as I feel more natural in it. This Saint Pinky Nude perfectly mimics my natural color while supporting it with a fresher, slightly more intense look. I adore this lipstick and it is my go-to daily color. This is perfect for those times when you want to look put together but not made up! It is my everyday, kick around the neighborhood, go shopping and picking up the kids at school-color. For me, it is the lipstick that started my new obsession with Lipstick Queen.

So I mentioned above that I want to get a few more colors and that I might just be asking a certain man in red for at least one more this holiday season. Want to know which one I am obsessing over now? Hello Sailor! It is pretty funky looking since it is a blue lipstick. BUT fear not. It can be worn alone, but I want to use it as an understain to my other colors. I think it will add a richness and depth to some of my M.A.C. lipsticks I currently own. I have to say, Lipstick Queen is easily outpacing M.A.C. in my opinion.
