When it comes to dramatic makeup, Lipstick Queen always come up trumps. I’ve tried and loved their frog prince range (review here) which turns from green to pink, but that seems like nothing compared to their Black Lace Blush.
A dinky little compact covered with what looks like the finest French lace, Black Lace Rabbit is one of those products you’re going to want to apply in front of friends, just to see the looks on their faces! Describing itself as a ‘haunting black’ which turns into the perfect berry shade when applied, this is one magic trick which you don’t need to reserve for parties!
Shot through with a delicate golden shimmer, even though the blush looks like a true black in the pan, when applied it’s a sheer berry which can be built up depending on how dramatic you want your look to be. Talking of buildability, it is possible to go overboard with the blush, so take it slow at first. A gentle pat with fingertips give cheeks a perfect tinge of colour, whilst on the lips it looks berry-stained.
It’s such a great product for autumn (and especially Halloween) and the berry is a flattering change from my usual pink and nude shades of lipgloss and blush. The formula of the blush is an absolute delight too! Designed to mimic silk stockings, it’s incredibly lightweight – leaving a sheer trace of colour on the skin. It lasts for a good eight hours as a blush and around two on the lips without feeling in any way drying.
