Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick*

I’d heard rather good things about Lipstick Queen lippies. From bold, bright colors to hydrating formulas I was intrigued.

So when I had a couple of evening events this weekend, I knew exactly which lippie I would be sporting – Brat Pack. A true Hollywood Red; but before we get into lipstick-specifics, I think we should just take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous packaging. It looks exactly how you want a lipstick to look, and it makes me feel as if I’m in some Grace Kelly movie.

Before applying Brat Pack, I thoroughly exfoliated and moisturized my lips (first I used a Victoria’s Secret Lip Scrub, and then I patted on a little Kiss Mix). Once I let the balm sink in a little, I then carefully painted on the shade using a lip brush, blotted, then applied again.

This is a serious lip colour – it’s the most beautiful true red, with just a touch of blue to keep my teeth looking pearly-white. Since it’s a matte shade, I did worry a little about my lips feeling a little parched, but really, I shouldn’t have bothered. It feels like silk to apply, and once this lipstick is on, it’s on! I barely had to look at my mouth all night, as this just sat looking pretty the entire night. Possibly the best part? It has a light, minty flavour and scent which kept me looking and feel great all evening!

The lipstick is priced at £35.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
