Lipstick Queen Girls Will Be Boys Lipstick & Primer ($25) is the brands first ever lipstick primer and considering we live in a world of mattes this is the perfect way to prep lips prior to color application. But wait there’s more! It’s also acts to give lips a kissable look.
According to the brand it’s not so much a shade but a tone that changes the appearance of your lips makes them look like you’ve been using them all night. Kissing I suppose? Ahem…!
It’s actually matte in finish but has a suede-like texture that provides hydration while filling finer lines and giving a smooth, even finish on lips. Apparently the finish is photoshop-like in appearance. It contains vitamin E, shea, and mango butters to give it a soft, cushy texture that hydrates as it preps for lipstick or of course, it can be worn alone.
It looks lilac in the swatch that Lipstick Queen provided and gray or translucent in the promo photos. But I suspect it’ll likely turn pink like most pH lip balms do.
We shall see though! I like the way they describe the texture. I mean, I don’t like matte by any means but I suede sounds positively lovely! And I can always use a prep for my lipsticks.
