We often hear that bold lips are for fall and winter and lighter, more colorful lips are reserved for Spring. Lipstick Queen’s founder, Poppy King, is bucking the trend with one of her latest collections, Bete Noire.
The Lipstick Queen Bete Noire collection was inspired by the dark sensuality that resides within us all. Of the collection, King says, “I wanted to design a singular shade in three contrasting moods.” The trio of lipsticks are all nourishing with a warm blackberry tone but they vary in finish and intensity.
- Possessed Metal is a shimmering berry that glides on the lips without a hitch. It is for your “playful and naughty dark side.”
- Possessed Intense is a deep and decadent blackberry shade that I think is simply a great color and finish to add to any lipstick collection
- Possessed Sheer feels like a balm and has just the right amount of color with just one swipe. However, it can be built up a bit for a more opaque and semi gloss finish.
According to Poppy, “This seductive collection will bring drama and intensity to your lips so get ready to embrace your dark side!”
