I want to marry this lipstick. Seriously. I searched high and low for the perfect MLBB shade. Spent WAY too much time and WAY too much money. But this stuff? Wow. Not only does it feel freaking fantastic on (almost like I'm wearing lip balm) but the color is amazing. I swear it's magical. I put it on and I just look *good*. Everybody needs this lipstick in their arsenal.
The perfect pink
This is the perfect pinky nude. It offers a bit more color than the typical your-lips-but-better lipsticks like NARS Dolce Vita, but it's also sheer. I typically move on to my next lipstick purchase before making much of a dent in my current lipstick, but I'm almost through this tube and I only bought it a few weeks ago. It's not as moisturizing as I'd hoped, which is why I took off one star. I often have to apply a regular balm underneath this, but I love the color so much that I don't mind.
Perfect "Your Lips But Better" Shade
I have purchased the Jean Queen shade 3 times so far. If you don't care for nude lips, then this is a great "your lip color but better" alternative. It looks great with casual wear or an understated make-up look for work. I would say it is the most versatile color that I own. It has a good amount of pigment and is comfortable and creamy. I do add some gloss to refresh it after a few hours. Normally it wears well until lunch time. I have even given this color as a gift to a friend who is a true denim lover.
Not what I expected
I purchased this lipstick because I have been a "tomboy" for thirty years and a makeup addict for a year and a half do the idea of a lipstick that was created specifically to match my denim was very attractive. I was disappointed when I tried it on though. It looks like a lipstick bullet but it applies like a lip gloss instead and is not richly colored but more like, again, a moderately tinted lip gloss. Attempting to build up the color only resulted in an overglossed sticky mess and I couldn't even get the product to apply precisely enough to avoid clown-face.
If you are a gloss fan this is probably an amazing product for you and it does have some great qualities but I am not buying this again.
Look no more!
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Had my eye on it for a while and finally decided to purchase it and am so happy with it! I'm light skinned and this lipstick is perfect. I tend to stick more to chap sticks or natural lip colors and this adds a pop of color to my lips that is really flattering but still along the lines of natural beauty. As far as texture and application goes, it glides on smooth like butter. Not thick or heavy as most lipsticks, but nothing as sticky as lip glosses, which I can't stand. I had no issues with it drying out my lips or being messy as some reviews have mentioned. I completely recommend it ladies, you will not be disappointed!
