I’ve had an obsession with finding the perfect purple lipstick ever since I watched this video by Chloe Dykstra. I swear she influences like half my make-up buys, probably more since it was through her that I discovered indie makeup. Either way, bar flying to New York to go to the Bite Beauty Lip Lab (although that temptation only got stronger after Ashley went), I have to shop around for the look I want.
Stella! by Lipstick Queen was a present from my mum and looked promising. Along with being super luxurious as far as packaging goes, the Silver Screen collection is very old Hollywood, the colour in the tube is so dang pretty!
Here’s the thing. It’s a little too sheer for the look I’m going for. It’s still lovely, but it mixes with my natural lip colour/ my lipliner and looks more pink than it does in the tube which is a bit of a bummer. I still really like it though because a sheer purple look is a little easier to wear and I think it suits me so- yeah. The formula is nice and smooth and it builds up a little but not a huge amount. It’s welcome in my collection- but the hunt continues.
Want to pick up Stella!? You can get it here!
