I know if I get a bag like this arriving at my door, there’s something pretty exciting inside.
And sure enough!
Meet Hello Sailor, Lipstick Queen’s take on the blackberry lip trend.
Yes, you’re seeing right, it’s blue. If you wear it alone, it gives the sheerest blackberry hue to your lips; quite hard to describe – like adding vamp to a neutral lip.. it’s there but not there and actually, it’s a pretty sexy look. There is definitely some pink in there, it isn’t all blue, so the result is very, very slightly wine stained lips but with a sheer, low gloss finish. A gorgeous texture, in fact.
You can see the pink tones on the swatch, but also the grey/blue shades as well. The other way to wear this is to add it over an existing lipstick to add a glint of grey/blue. It’s kind of mysterious, bondage but not quite, and I never thought I’d say it but I’d wear it. In fact, I am wearing it.
This is a Lipstick Queen Limited Edition Lipstick and it’s £20 at SpaceNK from May 1st.
