Welcome to the Butterfly Ball! Lipstick Queen is introducing a new lipstick formula for holiday. Butterfly Ball lipsticks are sheer*, contain Aloe Vera, vitamins E, C, and B for moisture, and have tiny blue sparkles to make your teeth look whiter. They’re $20 each, and if you don’t find one in your holiday stocking, don’t fret: they are a permanent addition to the line.
Now the reason for the asterisk on sheerness. Trance and Float are obviously sheer. Goodbye, Moment, and Fly will be a little more pigmented on someone of my skintone (or paler), but they’ll be sheer on darker skintones.
I tried on Trance and really liked it (it’s that sheer strawberry jam look again), but now I’m conflicted because I’m still pining for a Chinatown glossy pencil. I can’t confirm that I perceived any teeth whitening wearing the Butterfly Ball… but maybe I’m just self-conscious about my teeth now.
Help me out, readers! Chinatown vs. Butterfly Ball: which should I get?
[edit: I did spring for Trance, and after wearing it a few times, I do feel that the lipstick actually has a sort of bluish cast to it, which I don't love against my skin (you know I'm a warm lips kind of girl). The formula does feel amazing though.]
