Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil Review and Swatches

With names like Chinatown Chase and Chinatown Thriller the Muse can’t help be tickled by the Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil. Seriously, I’m a total grindhouse movie geek and the names just reminds me of some cheesy little flick that features chases through Chinatown in beat up Monte Carlo Chevrolets with hot chicks at the wheel and possibly bad dubbing. Bad dubbing always makes grindhouse movies the awesome doesn’t it?

Take the jump to watch this grindhouse movie unfold.

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Matte Gloss Review and Swatches

Oxymoron: A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist.


Lipstick Queen scores again with her incredible Oxymoron Matte Gloss!

Click ahead for it.

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Matte Gloss contradicts itself with a smooth, sheer formula that wears like a gloss but has the finish of a matte lipstick. With incredible vintage Gorey-like illustrations on the packaging this matte gloss is chic and multitasking for cheeks and lips.

I know I’m one of those that falls into the category of being deadly scared of matte lipstick…well ok..I admit it…matte anything scares the hell out of me. Matte colors be it shadow, lipstick, or other proves a difficult medium to work with as it’s particularly a daunting task to blend and apply correctly. No worries Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Gloss is creamy, moisturizing, blends flawless onto cheeks or lips, and leaves behind pigmented color that’s flattering, healthy, natural, and very pretty. Possibly one of the best matte formulas I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Not unlike that of Stila Convertible Color compact these glosses are long wearing on your face for a fresh burst of color. The formula is slightly tacky and holds a certain stickiness to it but applies like a dream to cheeks leaving behind just the right amount of color. That tack in the formula allows the product to remain on cheeks for a nice, long wear especially in humid, hot weather!

As for lips, the gloss comes with a decent enough lip brush (if you have your own you might like to use that) for application. Shhh I tend to apply with a finger tip, gives me more control, just be sure you use nice clean finger tips before dipping it into the compact! The gloss smooths onto lips easily leaving behind very pigmented color with a tiny hint of subtle glossiness that contradicts that of the very matte finish. I noticed the formula was a bit drying on my lips but not over much however those with VERY dry lips should probably prep well prior to use and perhaps add a bit of gloss on top to prevent the gloss from feathering or drying lips out further.

The shades I tried are quite similar in color with very slight differences. Free Ride is a nude peach where as Honest Politician brown rose shade. On my lips and cheeks I didn’t notice much difference between the two shades but regardless both were flattering.


In the photos below I am wearing the gloss on my lips and cheeks!


Overall, with it’s ability to act as a blusher and a lip gloss (or lipstick if you please), Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Matte Gloss is worthy of a check out. As with many of her products I’ve tried I find I’m not disappointed and quite impressed. Very good stuff and worthy of my Muse Approval.

Anyone a lover?

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron Matte Gloss is available via Lipstick Queen’s website for $20 each.
