Yesterday we looked at the Lipstick Saints, the “10% pigment” lipsticks from “lips-only” brand Lipstick Queen. The Saints’ counterparts are the Sinners: same color ideas, same names, but in matte, full-coverage glory. If you need instant 40s glam, it’s right here. To tell you the truth, I found the Sinners more interesting than the Saints.
About the bonus two lipsticks… Black Tie Optional lipstick was sitting on the Saints and Sinners display unit, and since it comes in the same color tube as the Sinner lipsticks, I thought it was one of them. It’s not. Black Tie Optional is a mattifying black lipstick, meant to be worn on top of something else to make it extra sexy (kind of like Lancome’s Piha gloss).
Lipstick Queen also makes Medieval Lip Stain, a sheer red lipstick that turned out to be my favorite product from this brand. I think everyone in the world is looking for a sheer red lipstick — this could be it.
Lipstick Queen lipsticks are $18 each, and can be purchased through her website, Barneys New York’s website, and in a scattered selection of physical stores.
