Tag Tuesday: Lip Lovin’

It has been eons since I did a Tag post, partly because I haven’t been tagged for anything in a while. Sniff! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyway, I came across this tag at The Makeup Honeyโ€”the blogger, Sian, created the tag herselfโ€”and thought it’d be fun to do.

Tag Tuesday: Lip Lovin’

1. What was the first lipstick you ever owned?

CoverGirl in Honeyplum Glow! I can’t remember if my mom let me buy it, or if she gave it to me. Or maybe I just “borrowed” it and she never said anything! I used it all through high school. JUST ONE LIPSTICK. Boggles my mind, now.


2. Which lip product has been the biggest disappointment?

Lipstick Queen’s Sinner Lipstick in Berry. Horrid. I also hate all those pastel lipcolors that end up so chalky and showing every line and bit of dry skin on the lips! I’m looking at you, CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Coral Cat and MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Fashion City! Another two fails I remember well were Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Blackberry and Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Flashing Lights.

Lipstick Queen โ€” Berry (Sinner Lipstick) Swatch & Review

Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick

For at least a year now, I have been searching for the perfect vampy red lipstick. Perfect meaning: looks just like the discontinued NARS Spanish Red, but is less drying and doesn’t go bad in a couple of years. I was pretty disappointed when NARS launched the Audacious Lipsticks and there wasn’t a dupe for Spanish Red to be found. So the search continues.

One of the first lipsticks I got in my search was Lipstick Queen’s Sinner Lipstick in Berry. The Sinner Lipsticks are simply their line of opaque lip colors; the Saint Lipsticks are sheer. Cute.

I’d heard great things about LQ lipsicks, so I was very keen to try one. I ended up ordering it in the US and having it brought up to me here in Canada.

The tube itself is pretty nice, but it has a rubberized texture which collects dirt and dust like nobody’s business. Arrrgh.

But, I can’t adequately express my disappointment when I opened my new lipstick and saw this:
