It takes a lot to be admitted to any hall of fame and the gorgeous lipsticks in Lipstick Queen’s Hall of Fame Collection ($48, a great price as the set is a $66 value), certainly earn the honor. This is a wonderful set with three superior shades that look great on virtually anyone – hence, it’s a superb gift choice. My advice, though, is to get this set for yourself. Trust me, all three shades will immediately go into your regular lippie rotation.
Butterfly Ball in Float, Jean Queen, and Medieval are all Lipstick Queen bestsellers, each with varying levels of sheerness. All three lippies are extremely moisturizing and a pleasure to wear. They all have shea butter, aloe vera, and vitamins E, C, and B, which leaves lips soft and sexy.
Butterfly Ball in Float is a pale shimmering nude with a bit of turquoise iridescence.
To be honest, most nude lippies don’t work for me. I have so little pigment in my lips that nudes usually make me look like I’m about to suffer from hypothermia, so they go to Marcia who can wear them well. But this nude…I love it. It has just enough color to define my lips and it has the best texture and slip. The bit of blue in the formula helps teeth appear whiter, which is pretty cool side effect.
Jean Queen is a subtle, laid-back pink that is perfect for casual outfits.
I love the concept behind this lippie. People were constantly asking Lipstick Queen creator Poppy what shade to wear with jeans, so she created the ultimate shade. It has a little more color than Float, but it’s definitely sheer and casual. The pink shade is a perfect contrast to the blue in your jeans and it really is a universally flattering shade.
What you have heard about Medieval is not rumor. It’s true…anyone can wear this red.
Medieval is a like a little black dress. It works on everyone and goes with everything. It’s a subtle, sheer red that looks natural yet glam at the same time…I didn’t even think that was possible! And the story behind the name is awesome. In Medieval times lipstick was considered rather wicked. Instead, women used lemon juice to irritate lips, creating a blood-red stain. This lipstick recreates that shade, minus the misuse of citrus. The texture is beautiful, it glides on and feels very silky, and the red shade really makes teeth and skin look amazing. It’s kind of in between a lip gloss and a lipstick and it is fantastic.
Lipstick Queen Hall of Fame Collection is a big winner. All three shades deserve their spot in Poppy’s hall of fame and you want these shades in your collection! - Lisa
