Guys, I have a new obsession that I have to share with you. I used to collect nail polish but in the last year or so I’ve really gotten into lipstick instead. I like Bite a lot (made in Canada) and got a few of those over the summer that I really like but today I discovered Lipstick Queen and I am absolutely hooked. Like I said, I’m obsessed and I really splurged!! Lipstick for my coloring is quite tricky but I’ve found that lavender based pinks are the most flattering for my eye/skin/hair color combo and I’ve gone as far as buying an opalescent clear gloss that I can layer over other colors to add that lavender. Sometimes lavender pinks can be too Easter egg purple, goth, matte or just plain crazy but if it’s the right balance of pink with a hint of dusky lavender it’s perfect for me. The ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ lipstick caught my eye today because it is a gorgeous rose gold bullet. I swatched it thinking it would be a fun but garish metallic and it’s actually a lavender pink with little flecks of gold! I got to try it out in store on my lips and I was amazed out how glowy it was and hydrating with really great color payoff I then tried the Butterfly Ball ‘Sigh’ and it also has a touch of mauvey lavender to it without being a nude and I just had to bring them home. I decided to go for lunch first before making my big makeup purchase and over an hour and a half of eating and drinking (afternoon date day) my lips where still stained the most pretty pink. I went back and tried them again and it’s now been 4 hours (without eating) and the ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ has stayed in place. Also, this brand of lipstick is cruelty free according to their website and made in Canada. 

Watch this Youtube video I found swatching some of these colors. First Impressions: Lipstick Queen. I now have 3 more colors on my *neeeeed* list. Definitely I want to try Queen Bee, Frog Prince, Hello Sailor and another one I saw in store in the Butterfly Ball line called ‘Goodbye’.

Have you guys tried this brand before? What do you think?

The packaging on these is unreal. 

Lipstick Queen

Butterfly Ball – Sigh 

Description from the website: 

The light, airy and magical look of the butterfly wing is the ultimate in glamour produced exclusively by Mother Nature. All the subtle Butterfly Ball shades pay tribute to this. They are as sheer as a butterfly wing with a beautiful hint of shimmer and Iridescence when they catch the light. The formula is incredibly wet, soft and moisturizing to condition your lips, while dressing them at the same time.

  • The subtle flash of blue pearl in each shade is flattering on the lips and helps teeth appear whiter
  • Super moisturizing and conditioning with aloe vera and vitamins E, C and B
  • Contains film formers to help seal in moisture

Lipstick Queen

Let Them Eat Cake

Description from the website: 

The lavender trend gets a Lipstick Queen makeover with Let Them Eat Cake, a delicate lilac lipstick shot through with sugary rose gold sparkles that will light up your entire look. Paying homage to Marie Antoinetteā€™s lavish taste and her total rejection of the ordinary, Poppy created this ground-breaking and truly extraordinary lipstick that captures that same spirit of rebellion and decadence. Pretty pastel is given a special metallic finish with a rock and roll edge that shimmers flirtatiously on the lips.

Can be worn alone or as a topcoat, it will transform your favourite Lipstick Queen shade with its unique metallic pearl effect. The icing on the cake, if you will!

  • With anti-oxidant Vitamin E and nourishing Apricot Kernal Oil
  • Suits all complexions
  • Cool tones of lilac are cleverly countered with rose gold lustre pigments that catch the light and create voluptuous lips
  • The lilac trend made flattering

    Another obsession we both share! I have actually had Lipstick Queen "Stella" (Silver Screen) and Let them Eat Cake on my "list" for awhile but haven't pulled the trigger. I love shades of lilac/mauve/purple. Both of these shades look great on you!

      That is funny!!! I just gravitated to the packaging today and had to check it out. I'll need to look at 'Stella'.

    Love those colors on you!! Lipstick is so fun. I need to start wearing it more. It makes me feel grown up!

    You look so pretty! I have to admit, I'm not much of a makeup fan, I actually haven't worn any makeup at all since I was 17/18 and I'm now 40! I think I'm weird when it comes to makeup, I don't know what my problem is but I just don't feel like me with it on, it feels so strange on my face too… I don't know if it's just me or what…

      Thanks!! I'm the same with makeup. I love lip gloss. As in, clear lip gloss. I don't wear makeup day to day but I am starting to feel like I can get away with that less and less. mostly because my eyes look tired and my lips look pale. I'll never ever know how to competently do my eye makeup but I can slap on some lipstick and concealer like a pro.

      You're welcome! Thank for the nice response! It's good to know I'm not alone. I have got away with it over the years, but these last couple of years I have been feeling like my face and features are more washed out, if that makes sense, they just don't seem to stand out the same the same anymore. They could probably use some help, but I wouldn't even know where to begin with makeup, but as I mentioned before, it just feels so strange on I don't think I could get used to it. Anyway, I think you look very pretty wearing your new lipsticks and just as pretty without any makeup as well. Your eyes are gorgeous all on their own!

    Pretty lipsticks. I always wear the same brands of lipstick because it doesn't have a smell. Does this lipstick have a scent?

    • Lulumum

      I haven't noticed a smell but reading online that some of them do. I think the Queen Bee smells like honey and some of them smell like vanilla. I haven't noticed a scent at all though.

    Wow those shades are gorgeous and look great on you! I love when my favorite bloggers do beauty tip posts. I'm with anon above, I'm going on 40 and never wear makeup bc it looks funny on me. But there are times when I absolutely need to, and it's nice to see what works for others so I don't have to go through a bunch of trials to find something good.

      I'm glad to see your comment, anon 8:00 AM. I always thought I was an oddball when it comes to this!

      Lulumum, the lipsticks look really nice on you. As you know from my comments, I'm certainly not an expert on makeup, but it is easy to see that they look very natural and complement your features nicely – this is how I would like lipstick to look on me if I wore it.

    • Lulumum

      Thanks!! Yes I struggle with wearing makeup. I feel really odd in it, especially lipsticks. Lipsticks usually look very harsh on me but I found these somehow looked very natural despite the built in shimmers.

    I love Lipstick Queen. I used to wear the brand like 6 years ago but I haven't bought any since they expanded from really only selling online and at Barney's.

    You look so pretty in this lipstick. You have inspired me to try the brand. Like you, I love lipsticks and Lulu!

    BTW, you also have the most lovely eyes!

    Where did you get it? I really like the slightly lavender pinks on myself too. Love that it is made in Canada.

      I got it at Nordstrom but I was looking online last night to see what Canadian retailers sells it and the only place I could find to buy them was Amazon. I don't understand why something made in Canada is not really sold here.
