Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Vesuvian Candy | Review & Swatches

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

There is no question that liquid lipsticks have become among the most talked about lipstick formulas to adorn the lips of beauty editors, bloggers and It-Girls, but the one that isn't being talked about as much as it should be is Lipstick Queen's Liquid Lipstick– that was, incidentally, around before the trend gained such traction.
Lipstick Queen Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Vesuvius Candy, which is described as a warm elegant pink, boasts a lovely long-wearing formula that neither feathers, nor bleeds. It has a beautiful shiny finish that is ultra-flattering, and it isn't in the least bit sticky. The formula is ultra-comfortable on the lips, has the perfect amount of cushion, and the Jojoba Seed Oil moisturizes the lips while the Vitamin E protects the skin. The inclusion of the Peppermint Oil makes this a very refreshing liquid lipstick, but it is neither overpowering, nor does it cause any discomfort for sensitive lips. The scent does fade soon upon application, but if you dislike peppermint you should be aware that one does initially experience its aroma.

I love the brush applicator, and the twist dispenser because it is handy, self-contained, and perfect for travel.
According to Lipstick Queen,

Experience intense color that erupts on the lips like molten lava, with pigment so deep it creates an explosion of glamour.

  3. I have this somewhere in my stash & I love it. I had no idea that it contains the dreaded peppermint oil. I wear it with no problem but can't wear OCC Lip Tar. Wonder what the diff is???

    1. I was actually thinking about you as I was writing the review because I was sure that the peppermint would bother you! I haven't pulled out one of my Lip Tars in a while, but it seems to me that it is both more pepperminty, and the formula is less hydrating– at least that is how I remember it.

  4. I agree that Lipstick Queen doesn't get the attention it deserves. Their products are unique. The color of this one looks perfect for you too.
