“Glamour is about to get volcanic with these high-gloss liquid lipsticks.” Poppy King
Lipstick Queen has a brand new liquid lipstick out called Vesuvius ($24) and it is hot hot hot!
This ultra-pigmented liquid lipstick is pretty amazing. The texture is thick, yet wonderfully emollient with fabulous slip. It feels downright luxurious on the lips. This lipstick hybrid isn’t the least bit sticky, but it does stick around and the color lasts for hours without feathering. The formula is super moisturizing with jojoba and vitamin E.
Vesuvius Liquid Lips is just a joy to wear.
I like the convenient twist-up brush applicator. I twisted up quite a bit of product for the photos, way more than is actually needed for complete opaque coverage of lips.
I was sent two shades to try: Red and Blush.
Red (described as a burning scarlet red) definitely turns pink on me. I think it’s just my body chemistry because when I had my daughter try it on it was a deep red on her. Luckily I like the deep pink it morphs into on me.
Blush (described as a smoldering natural peach) is a beautiful glossy peachy-pink neutral. This is a fantastic shade that will work with just about any skin tone. It’s a YLBB color with enough oomph to not fade out into zombie territory. I adore it and I always have this in my purse.
Other shades available include Bare (shimmering gold nude), Candy (warm elegant pink), Coral (bright, fiery coral), and Fuschia (scorching hot pink). I definitely want to add Bare and Candy to my collection.
I think Vesuvius Liquid Lips is absolutely amazing – Poppy King has done it again! I can’t recommend this moisturizing, pigment-packed liquid lipstick highly enough. So…which glamorous volcanic shade sounds perfect for you? – Lisa
