Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick Review & Swatches
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick is a new luxurious matte lipstick created by the Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen herself. Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick is a completely new lipstick for the brand as it is a bit more upscale with a formula that’s incredibly complex, luxurious, and oh so beautiful.
I’m going to throw it out there and say this is the best matte lipstick I have ever had the pleasure of using!
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick ($50) will be available in five pigmented packed shades. The lipstick is formulated with dense pigments that glide onto lips like butter with a smooth, velvety formula and a luxurious, weightless matte finish. The texture isn’t drying, it isn’t tight, it barely feels like you’re wearing anything at all on your lips yet it still manages to provide completely opaque color on a single stroke.
As strongly as I dislike matte lipsticks or matte anything for that matter it comes as a great surprise how much I adore this lipstick. Truly a lot of love went into this formula. The lipstick packs incredible pigment which in turn provides a very dramatic and old Hollywood look. A new ingredient, Silicone Elastomer, makes Velvet Rope Lipstick glide lightly onto lips and requires very little pressure to get the color intensity you see in my swatches and look below. The formula is packed with moisturizing waxes as well as Apricot Oil and Vitamin E so lips remain moist and hydrated through the wear and the lipstick won’t flake up, tighten, or migrate around your mouth. I had no issues with color transferring, feathering, or taking a road trip around my mouth. Color wears strongly for a solid five hours without losing intensity and begins to show minor fading at hour six with a staining effect left behind just into the six and half hour point.
Even the packaging is elegant as the lipstick comes housed in a vintage gold style square tube with a magnetic closure and the Lipstick Queen’s emblem inscribed on the top.
This is truly a stunning formula that isn’t to be missed if you’re a lipstick girl!
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick is a luxurious formula that will convert anyone to a matte finish lipstick. A formula like this will spoil you for all lipsticks that come after it!
