Tired of your smokey eye? The smokey lip is promising to be the next big trend. Lipstick Queen is making this trend easy with their new sets.
Both Smokey Lip Kits include two lipsticks, a colour and a smokey top coat. For now, the sets come with pretty neutral lipstick tones. I tried the Bright Natural Sinner as my base coat, but you can also choose the Pinky Nude Sinner. I wish there were more options. Maybe something a bit bolder, but I think this was a wise choice for the brand to start neutral. This makes the trend easier to dive in to.
Both sets also come with the Black Lace Rabbit. It’s a sheer black lipstick top coat with a slight shimmer. You can wear it alone, but I think it’s more fun when you layer it over your lipstick.
Don’t freak out when you see the black colour. It doesn’t turn your lipstick black. It just gives it a light, well, smokey finish. It turns neutral tones a bit more sultry.
Because this is just a lipstick top coat effect, the possibilities are endless on how you can use it. Try it over your favourite lipsticks to make old colours feel new again.
My one qualm is that I do wish it lasted a bit longer on my lips, but I don’t mind reapplying in this case.
