Lipstick Queen Fifteen (okay, Ten) Minutes of Fame …

By Get Lippie

I was at the Space NK Sale the other day, and I managed to pick up these babies:


And all for £22!  That’s 10 Lipstick Queen lipglosses, that normally retail at £13.30 each.  Okay,they’re only 2/3s the size of the full size product, but when that difference works out at 0.2gms, that not such a big deal, still a bargain!  Poppy King is kind of a heroine of mine, so I was delighted to be able to pick up more of her products, I don’t think there’s a duff one in the range, I love my saints and sinners lippies too.

The Berries set contains glosses 2, 5, 11, 14 and 15, which are described on the website as: Watermelon Pink, Pale Peach, Vibrant Purple, Gorgeous Grape and Sexy Wine.  Here’s how they swatch on the skin:



My personal favourite from this pack is number 15, which is a gorgeous sheer red, and not as blue as the “wine” description makes it sound:

The Nudes set contains 1, 3, 4, 12 and 13, which the website describes as: Pale Ballet Pink, Smooth Apricot, Pale Peach, Deep Rose and Pretty Raspberry.  Here’s how they swatch on the skin:



My favourite one of this pack is number 12, here’s how it looks in wear:

Lipstick Queen Fifteen Minutes of Fame glosses are unscented, non-sticky and shimmer-free, which makes a nice change.  I find them lovely and emollient, and highly pigmented, and – for a gloss – fairly longlasting.  Go snap some up!

Lipstick Queen glosses are available from Space NK branches nationwide.
