A couple of months ago, I qualified for a beauty goody bag after I made a substantial beauty/fragrance purchase at Barney’s. I got a ton of great beauty products in the bag, and I’ve been making my way through them all.
One of my purchases was a Lipstick Queen Endless Summer lipstick in Aloha, a translucent red. It was my first Lipstick Queen purchase, and I love it. It’s a great everyday red. Very hydrating. Not an in your face red. I wear it often.
In the goody bag, I found a full size Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lips. What a surprise! Two Lipstick Queen lipsticks! I loved the bold look of the packaging; black block letters on hot pink.
Vesuvius Liquid Lips is a long slim pen and it has a brush applicator like my favorite Milani Power Lips that’s been discontinued, much to my chagrin. I find the brush applicator very easy to use.
And the color, Candy, a medium pink shade, is very similar to the Milani Power Lips Macaron that I loved.
I’m relieved that Liquid Lips isn’t a matte as many liquid lipsticks now tend to be. Mattes don’t go with my dry lips. Fortunately, it’s a very glossy cream. So hydrating, not sticky, so lovely to wear.
Poppy King, the creator of Lipstick Queen says:
“Glamour is about to get volcanic with these high-gloss liquid lipsticks.”
Here’s how Lipstick Queen website describes it:
“The intense formula features rich, high-impact pigment that protects and nourishes your lips while giving you a color explosion.”
It has no taste or fragrance. It’s not a long-wearing lipstick, but that’s fine with me. If I want it to last longer, I’ll apply it over Too Faced Lip Insurance. Or I’ll just put on some more with no problem.
Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lips comes in 5 other shades in addition to Candy: Bare, Peach, Coral, Fuchsia, Red. The pen contains 0.08 oz/2.4 ml. It’s sold at Barney’s, Nordstrom, Net a Porter, and on the Lipstick Queen website, and it’s priced at $24. Made in Germany.
