The new Lipstick Queen Saint & Sinner Lip Tint collection should be along any day now at SpaceNK. I had every expectation not to like these, but in fact, they’re amazing – especially shade Rose which turns out to be a vivid coral pink. Lip tints don’t like my lips – I prefer gloss because I do have crinkly lips and suspected that the tints would be deeply unflattering and drying. However, the Lipstick Queen Saint & Sinner Lip Tint has defied the odds and not made things worse.
After a couple of hour’s wear, the stain is still very well in place and I’m not getting any drying. In the formula is black soybean extract and an omega 3 rich ingredient called Algomega, so those are clearly helping.
In the swatch, they look shiny – the actual finish on the lip is a very slight sheen and it’s that, I think, that stops my lips looking too shriveled. They’re definitely more matte than gloss or sheen, and I think if I’m honest, I would always put a slick of balm over the top for personal preference, they are certainly highly stainy. So, the shades, from bottom to top are: Pinky Nude, Wine, Rose and Deep Red.

They’re £22 each. In the event that you’re a Lipstick Queen fan, and you can’t wait, I’ve spotted some LQ bargains on the SpaceNK site such as the Lipstick Queen Dancing Queen Trio for £8 (you’ll need to like shimmer, though!) HERE.
