Lipstick Queen Look of Love vs Jean Queen Comparison

Last Lipstick Queen post for a while, I promise!  In my Look of Love review last week, I mentioned that  if you owned Jean Queen you might not need Look of Love too, and a reader (waves at Pink Sith) asked if I could compare them.  So here you go.  Artificial Light Daylight  I was a bit surprised to see that Jean Queen, although brighter, […]

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron in Minor Crisis and Honest Politician Comparison

  It’s not often that a product goes straight from a goody-bag into my everyday makeup bag, but Lipstick Queen Oxymoron in Minor Crisis has managed it.  A nude-mauve (I’m a bit obsessed with mauve) rather pigmented cream, you can use this as either a cheek or a lip-shade.   I like the packaging (for the purposes of that statement, I’m ignoring the rather rubbish […]

Lipstick Queen Look of Love Lipstick Library

Long-time readers will know that I’m a big fan of Poppy King, and her company Lipstick Queen, and short-term readers might have noticed that there’s a bit of a theme this week, after yesterday’s post.  Both of you would be right.  After discovering an old classic yesterday, it’s time to look at something new from the range. If you haven’t got an ABC earworm right […]

Lipstick Queen Saint Wine

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 […]

Lipstick Queen Liptropolis Lipstick Library

 Anything new from Poppy King and Lipstick Queen always deserves a good looking at, and this latest release from Poppy is definitely worth a second look.  Visualised as the first in a series of “books” of lipsticks, Liptropolis is heavily influenced by New York, and the film “Metropolis”, it’s rather gorgeously designed, and is a real thing of beauty in a cluttered makeup collection: The […]

When Poppy King met No7

A brand new range of lip products were born:   I can’t deny that I have a bit of a fangirl crush on Poppy King, aka the Lipstick Queen,  she’s a stylish lady who is basically dedicating her life to lipstick.  Much like myself but, you know, with style and a lipstick company, and business sense and stuff.  I own something from practically every release […]

Lipstick Queen – Jean Queen.

I’m a sucker. No, really, sometimes I am.  I’m always on the look out for great neutrals and when I spotted these in SpaceNK (gah!) I had to indulge.  Poppy King’s latest addition to the Lipstick Queen line is a lipstick and a gloss designed to go perfectly with jeans. Yes, jeans.  Now, I love my jeans, don’t get me wrong, but one thought in […]

Makeover: Helen S

 Gosh, it’s been a few weeks since I posted a makeover, I’m really sorry! I hope you’ll all make Helen very welcome, she’s a great friend of mine, and we’ve been makeup shopping A Lot over the years. Mainly because it took me a very long time to cure Helen of her frosted mauve lipstick fetish …. Here she is, all fresh-faced, and only slightly […]

Mini Makeover – Ruth

Yes, it’s a mini-makeover again this week, mainly because I AM the world’s worst photographer, and I owe Ruth a massive apology as a result. Anyhoo, on with the “show”, as they say!  Please meet Ruth: Ruth is someone I’ve known virtually for longer than I care to remember, but up until her makeover we’d never actually met in the flesh!  Ruth runs Love it […]

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

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