For Poppy King, owner of Lipstick Queen, there is nothing more empowering than a lipstick and this lipstick obsessive wants to share that empowerment with you. Poppy set herself on an adventure to create a range of lipsticks tailored to all lipstick lovers needs, personally designing all the colours, textures and products in her range of lipsticks on her way. The story began with two very key lines: Saints and Sinners. Saint: sheer texture and bold colour. Sinner: opaque, adds a hint of colour. Every shade comes in Saint or Sinner formulation so you can choose between full coverage or a hint of colour in your favourite shade, no compromises.
Many a line of lipstick has been added to the Lipstick Queen selection since it all began but I've been heading back to the lipstick queen roots and putting the original formulas to the test. Prepare to be blown away by my top pick of the collection - Sunny Rouge.
Lipstick Queen lipsticks are packaged in fantastic gold packaging with a twistable bullet hosting 3.5g of lipstick. The lipstick is just beautiful just to look at and glides onto well buffed and smoothed lips with absolute ease. The formulation is really moisturising, it feels soft on my lips and doesn't highlight any problematic areas, in fact I'd say it nourishes my lips during wear.
Sunny Rouge is a subtle pink-toned red, it's a warming hue that brightens up your teeth beautifully. Wear time will vary person to person but on me the lipstick lasts around 3 hours before fading into a charming tint. I've got Sunny Rouge from the Saint collection here, meaning it's a bold pigmented with sheer colour; if this isn't your style the exact same hue is available in a more opaque formulation as well.
