Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Saint Rose
I recently spent the weekend in London and picked up this lipstick whilst I was there. The Lipstick Queen is Poppy King, who has designed a range of colours and textures that belong to two extremes, Saints and Sinners. All of the lipstick shades come in both formulas with Saints being sheer washes of colour and Sinners being more bold opaque matte shades. I went for a Saint formula and the colour I chose was Rose. First off, I have to say I thought the packaging was gorgeous, and looked very old school glamour, the case itself is gold and metal, but I loved the card and little picture on the sleeve of the packaging.
Saint Rose is a delicious, sophisticated sheer pink, which felt amazing and moisturising on my lips.
This particular colour is very natural looking, but there are a range of colours to suit which can be found on the Lipstick Queen website and definitely if you were looking for something more bold, I would go with a Sinner formula which has way more pigment. What I love about these lipsticks in both the Saint and Sinner formula is that there is no glitter, shimmer or frost to them, I'm really not a fan of this in a lipstick (maybe a gloss but that's different :))
However, if that is your thing Poppy King also does a shimmer treatment lipstick in her Butterfly Ball range which has a turquoise type iridescence to it, which, in theory because of it's tone, makes teeth appear brighter!
