Lipstick Queen: AMAZING LIP PRODUCTS!

February 26, 2010

I am a hugeee hugeee fan of Lipstick Queen. I am usually not one to purchase lipstick or lipgloss because of my bad experiences in the past with them. They are usually too sticky, too pasty looking and leaves my lips dry once its worn off. Well – ladies and gents (but mostly ladies), I bring to you the end to all lipsticks – Lipstick Queen!

Here are my two favorite products from them:

1. Chinatown Glossy Pencil: This chunky pencil really gives lip liners and lipsticks a run for its money. You’ve got your lip liner PLUS lipstick for a shiny, sheer gloss coat. It’s super easy to apply (obv.) and really the best part is that its easy to just throw in your purse. No mess or fuss! Don’t ask me how they make it shiny, but they do and once its applied, it feels super silky and moisturizing. The color that I have is Genre – you think orange – gross! But no, looks pinky and is very complimentary with my olive toned skin. This is definitely a must-have in my makeup bag.

2. Fifteen Minutes of Fame: If you want a super super shiny lip gloss, then this is for you. Also, very easy to apply and travel with (I’m a huge fan of ease), one turn of the base and you’ve got a great drop of concentrated color. When I first applied it, I thought the color was a bit too strong, but after brushing it evenly over my lips, it was very sheer with just a hint of color. I have #3, but I’d love to try something more HOT PINK… maybe #13?

Think Pink, Lips

I am newly obsessed with hot colored pink. I don’t know where this urge all of a sudden came from, but now I am on a hunt to find the perfect shade of hot pink. I found this awesome brand, Lipstick Queen and I think i have to order something! They have lipsticks, lip glosses and lip balms, lip pencils – you name it!

My favorite is Lipstick Queen’s 15 Minutes of Fame. They label each lipstick according to the minute! Clever! Hmm, I think I need number 7 or 8. What do you think?

Do Yourself a Favor, Don’t Share Makeup

Makeup isn’t cheap – especially for the high quality kinds, and we all know that we’re on a tight budget. But please remember to refrain from sharing makeup – ESPECIALLY stuff that you use on your eyesΒ  and lips. Why?

1. Eye make up has the highest risk of contamination with possible irritation and eye infections. Since our eyes are so sensitive, it does not take much bacteria to cause an eye infection. What a horrible way to get pink eye!

2. Lip gloss is also another bad offender. Because it comes in contact with your saliva, it’s easy to share lip infections like cold sores.

3. If you have shared makeup, remember to clean all your brushes (you should be doing this once a week, anyway) and keep the containers on your makeup closed tightly to prevent more germs from getting in. Makeup usually has some preservatives that help with germs, but this is not 100%, so be safe.

And last but not least, here are some safety tips to keep your makeup clean:

  • Keep makeup containers closed tight when not in use.
  • Keep makeup out of the sunlight to avoid destroying the preservatives.
  • Don’t use eye cosmetics if you have an eye infection such as conjunctivitis (pink eye), and throw away any makeup you were using when you first discovered the infection.
  • Never add any liquid to a product unless the instructions tell you to.
  • Throw away any makeup if the color changes or an odor develops. Preservatives can degrade over time and may not be able to fight bacteria

I’m not a lipstick wearing gal. Mostly for the fact that I don’t like getting lipstick onΒ  my food, drinks and in my mouth. I wanted to find a deep red lipstick that I could wear when I go out and I automatically thought M.A.C because it’ s my favorite makeup line. This lipstick is the perfect color and I noticed that it also supports HIV and AIDS.

Does anyone have have any good suggestions on colors and lipsticks that don’t fade easily?
