Lipstick Queen Big Bang Gloss

Lipstick Queen Big Bang Gloss
I've of course heard the story of Poppy King, the gal from Down Under that couldn't get enough of lipstick yet could never find a good one, and so created her own brand just barely out of high school. That original line (Poppy) because a cult favorite and while no longer around, it is still talked about on sites like Makeup Alley. These days she still has another small company that makes lipsticks, this time called Lipstick Queen.

I tried out Space, which reminded me quite a bit in the tube of my beloved Bobbi Brown Black Pearl. However, I did find that the color from Lipstick Queen was much more wearable and flattering. It gave me the hint of taupe that I wanted, without washing me out or being too obvious.

Overall this is a great gloss! Nice shine, it feels hydrating and it lasts for hours. Even through my morning coffee. Not to mention that the tube is really fairly large, you get a lot of lipgloss for your money!

  3. I like the packaging, but the color seems a little light. I have been looking for a new gloss, will have to give it a try.

  5. Dear Christine,
    I found your blog right now while researching about Le Mer. I read your great review about the facial cream (thanks for the great review!) and then I kept reading other posts, your about page...

    I just wanted to say that your blog is wonderful. It is unusual to see a blog about beauty products that is great/smart. I really appreciate all the information that you have gathered here. I will include a link to this wonderful place in my blog.

    Have a great day!
    Elsita :)
