I love that these $22 Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow lipstick/jumbo lip pencil hybrids are so smooth, pigmented and easy to apply, and you can get a nice outline around your lips with them. Lipstick Queen is a new brand to me, but I’m loving the luxe vibe.
I’ve reviewed my share of lipstick/lip pencil hybrids (remember the ones from Glo Minerals?), so I like to think of myself as a bit of an expert on the subject.
“Inspired by the artful precision of a perfectly applied cupid’s bow, this jumbo pencil is packed with pigment and works just like a lipstick and lip liner together in one. Loaded with hydrating ingredients to keep your pout in perfect condition, these pencils give lips a velvety drama that can be drawn on with one simply stroke. Lips are instantly saturated with rich, plush pigments and a dramatic yet moisture-rich satin matte finish. Naughty, nice and playful, with allow-like precision…just like Cupid himself!”
- Plush, powerful pigments with intense staying power and a satin matte finish

Luxurious formulation cushions lips in comfort
- Artful precision with one effortless application – glides on with intense color pay-off

What do you think of the two super vibrant shades I’m wearing in this post (here are the other six in the line)? Metamorphoses is a bright orange, and Apollo is a rich berry.
I LOVE these two bright shades, so I’m going to check out the other six next time I’m in Barneys. These are also available at Ulta for $22.
These feel super smooth and comfortable on my lips, but they’re not exactly “long wearing,” because they will transfer when I’m eating or drinking. However, since they’re as pigmented as they are, the color still lasts for a few hours.
Also, I really like that these lipsticks aren’t too soft, because sometimes these lipstick/lip pencil hybrids are so soft that they wear down super quickly, but that’s not the case here, so I think these will last a little longer than similar products. While they’re pricey, the quality is awesome, and the colors are sooo good for warm weather!
I’m also wearing Becca Cosmetics Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation in Warm Honey, the Zoeva Warm Spectrum eyeshadow palette (swatches in this post), Zoeva Luxe Color Blush in Burning Up, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and Colourpop Brow Pencil in Black N’ Brown in these pics.
What do you guys think of these lippies? If you’ve tried other products from Lipstick Queen, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
