Why be a princess when you can be a Lipstick Queen! I was introduced to Lipstick Queen at my local Ulta store and was beyond excited to test out of a few of their new Cupid’s Bow collection ($22 each).
Fun fact! Clara Bow was America’s original “It Girl”, who inspired perfectly outlined, seductive lips. To this day, creating heart shaped, cupid’s bow lips is called “putting on a Clara Bow”. Yes, this will be on the test!
Cupid’s Bow is a collection of 8 Jumbo Pencils that double up as both liner and lipstick. I am certainly more of a gloss girl myself, but I gave them a whirl. Both colors were super pigmented and glided on with no hassle. They also had staying power, but I would recommend wearing a gloss over them, as they felt a little dry on my lips.
Cupid’s Bow Ovid complements my tan skin for the summer months, but will also be a nice raspberry color for fall. Golden Arrow had a pinkish tint to it, while giving off the nude lip vibe. Definitely one I would wear on a regular basis and the safer of the two colors.
I really want to get my hands on Lipstick Queen’s Frog Prince next. It is an emerald green lipstick that adjusts to your skin’s natural coloring and pH levels, transforming into a rosebud shade. Sounds magical!
Now go out there and rule the world, Lipstick Queens!
