Lipstick Queen 15 minutes of fame lipgloss
These are the new offering from Poppy King, Lipstick Queen. Non-sticky, moisturising creamy glosses with no shimmer, in varying shades from baby pink nude to deep berry. There are 15 shades, each corresponding to one of the 15 minutes of fame.
I received this as a gift from a friend in shades 9 (a sheer red) and 12 (a creamy rose.) In the picture below, 12 is on the left and 9 is on the right - you can see the difference in opacity between the two shades.
9 gives me a red tint. It's pretty similar to the look of Lipstick Queen Medieval on my lips, but a bit more glossy.
12 gives me my lips but better rosy, shiny lips.
These glosses are not sticky, and are very comfortable to wear. They feel almost cushiony-balmy on the lips.
Lipstick Queen is currently only available in SpaceNK in the UK, and I think these are retailing for £14 each here. That is a little on the expensive side, as you don't get a huge amount; each gloss is 1.45ml. They are a nice option for anyone looking to replace the now discontinued/hard to find Stila lipglosses in the click tubes.
