Do you like the ease of a lip pencil? The slip of a glossy sheer lipstick? The come-hither shades which make your lips irresistible? Then you want the New Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil ($20.00).
Poppy King describes her line this season as getting “romantic and soft”, with stunning pinks and nudes to express a softer side of film noir. These wonderful chubby sticks come in 3 new shades (8 in total): Cameo (swatched), a soft nude; Catalina, a flirty fun yet subtle pink and Pink Bluff, an earthy nude.
This Glossy Pencil reminds me of sidewalk chalk — the way I hold it in my hand brings me back to when I would play with my mother’s makeup. It was so easy-to-apply and looked natural on my lips. Not a hint of stickiness detected.
Enriched with shea butter and mango, my lips will always be hydrated. I was very pleased at the wearability of the product as well. Not only did my lips look plump and hydrated, the color lasted through dinner!
