I’m introducing a new feature today! I know sometimes arm swatches just aren’t enough, so thanks to a few kind volunteer lip models, TNBTTGSY will begin incorporating lip swatches to the lineup. If you’d like to model your favorite lipsticks, glosses, and stains, send me an email!
Today’s lip swatch (and review) is from the lovely glossedup:
(See my on-arm Lipstick Queen Sinner swatches.)
Lipstick Queen is my favourite lipstick brand, so we’ll kick off with Rouge Sinner! A slightly deepened matte mid-red, it is fully opaque in one coat. It wears fantastically well and in my experience, neither dries out nor hydrates, wearing to almost a silk-powder-esque finish. The result is a lipstick that lasts at least six hours on me (no eating though) with minimal bleeding, even without liner. It’s not a true matte — there is a little sheen to it — and it’s a colour that would look best on warm-to-neutral ladies. (Cooler girls can look to Red Sinner.) There is no taste nor smell, and the Art Deco satin-finish packaging is gorgeous. The only issue that I’ve noticed is that the lipstick is prone to becoming a little “grainy,” with some product balling on the lipstick surface. This doesn’t affect application, and is not a preservation factor as I have seen it in near-new testers.
