Sinfully Matte Lips

Like many beauty addicts, I’ve been in love with lipstick since I was a little girl and now I feel like I found my lipstick soul mate. I’ve been lusting after Poppy King’s Lipstick Queen line for a long time now and I recently found out a local store that carried her line. I couldn’t get there fast enough.

Lipstick Queen Lipstick I tried one of Lipstick Queen’s Sinner lipsticks, they are known for being richly pigmented. Lipstick Queen loads their lipstick with 90% pigment and as you can imagine, the color is insanely rich. A Sinner lipstick is a matte lover’s dream. It’s long lasting and isn’t too harsh on your lips. There is a touch of dryness involved and it settles into lines on the lip but no more than your standard matte lipstick. It goes on smoothly and I was very impressed with how this lipstick wore on during the day, The first time I tried it I put it on at 7am and after coffee, breakfast and lunch, most of the color was still on my lips at 2pm. I was stunned and I became a believer right then and there.

If I really had to pick at Lipstick Queen’s Sinner lipsticks, the one thing I’d shade as that the shades seem to run a little darker than expected. I swatched quite a few and ended up settling on Nude Sinner. Given the shade’s name, I expected a “your lips but better” look with this lipstick but I found this shade was quite a bit darker. It ventured over on to the brown side a bit more than I wanted for a nude lipstick. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just something to keep in the back of your head when you select a shade.

Now that I’ve become a “sinner”, it’s time for me to try Lipstick Queen’s Saint lipsticks. I’ve already tried Oxymoron so I’m sure I’ll love the Saints.

  1. Hey Carla,

    I actually have Saint Nude and it is a nude colour on me. I had tried the sinner version too and found that to be too dark (like you said). Next time try the Saint version of the same lippie and you might like it – it’s not too glossy either so don’t worry about that being the problem.

  2. I really like coral sinner! I think its the perfect pop of color and a bit more different than red. I also find that Lipstick Queen is great because you never get “white line”.

  3. I picked up the Nude Saint this weekend (wearing it now!) and I love it, it’s a great “your lips but better” color on me.

  4. I love Rose Sinner,
    I never wore matte until I tried this brand.
    Def try the saints too.
    Nude is an amazing shade!
