While browsing SpaceNK at lunchtime with a friend, we spotted the new Lipstick Queen Peacock Alley trio.
This is a trio of non-sticky glosses (they feel more like lip balm swatched on the hand, and have a similar texture to the By Terry Baume de Rose) in a clear with pink shimmer suspended in it, a mid toned candy pink shimmer and a light pinkish peach shimmer. The glosses are beautiful, if quite sheer, and would work very well layered over lipsticks to give matte colours a pretty lift for the holiday season. The set is also well priced at £29 for the three (although each tube is on the smallish side).
Why didn't either of us buy it, despite admiring the colours? The lids on two out of the three testers did not stay on when closed. They weren't just a bit loose, they didn't stay on at all. It could just have been an issue with the testers, but there's no way to test that theory out without buying a set. If anyone has bought these already, I would be interested to know if the lids on them are sound. I will check back at my local SpaceNK next week to see if they've been able to resolve the issue and determine if they were just sent some shonky testers, or if it's a wider issue.
Edit to add: Please see the comments to this post. SpaceNK have identified an issue with some lids, and have removed current stock to replace.
