By my own admission, I’m something of a neutral lipstick hoarder. For day-to-day wearing, it’s always feels a bit easier to slick on a nude or a pink than head for a colour. But, when I caught sight of Lipstick Queen’s All That Jazz Collection, I just knew I needed to branch out into a more vibrant shade!
Before I even selected a colour, I had absolutely fallen in love with the packaging. It’s like the lipsticks were made for evenings out – the cases are a slick black and dotted with the glitziest of silver sparkles.
Out of the four available shades, I opted for Whoopee Spot, a stunning cool toned violet, which feels like such a fun colour to wear!
In the tube it looks like quite a daunting colour to wear, but when applied the lipstick has a semi-opaque formula. I am just in love with how glossy it is, and the formula’s glitter sparkles and shimmers in the light. It’s definitely an attention-grabbing shade, but it’s easy to tweak the colour to suit the effect you’re after. On evenings where I want something a little different, I use a single swipe, which leaves lips with a glossy, sheer layer of colour. For occasions where I want something a touch more dramatic, I’ve been applying the lipstick with my trusty lip brush. It means I can really control the placement of the colour, and build up a beautiful opaque violet shade which lasts throughout the evening.
