Lipstick Queen Saint Wine

By Get Lippie

Lipstick Queen Saint in Wine may very well be my new most favourite lipstick shade.  I swatched it on Thursday, and HAD to have it.  It’s not left my lips since.

In the bullet, it’s a deep, deep berry shade, that has a hints of brown and mauve, and, frankly it looks pretty scary.  But the beauty of the Lipstick Queen Saint formulation is that it only has 10%  pigment, and leaves a rather sheer effect on the lips as a result.  Whilst possibly not as cushioning and “balmy” on the lips as my beloved Chantecaille Lip Chics, the Saint lipstick formulation is very, very comfortable in wear, and leaves a nice wash of colour on the lips too.

Yeah, I swatched before I photographed, sorry!

 The beauty of this shade is that, because it is quite sheer, it allows the natural colour of your lips to shine through, in the swatch, it’s a little brown-looking, but as my lips are naturally quite pink (and pigmented) this turns it to quite a red shade:

It’s an easy-to-wear shade, not too red to feel self-conscious in, and extremely flattering. It’s  in Poppy King’s signature unscented formulation (such a relief to have unscented products once in a while, I find), and it feels like it’s doing your lips good when you’re wearing it.

I’m going to have to pick up the Sinner version (90% pigment) too.  As soon as I do, I’ll show you a comparison, with lip swatches ….
