Lipstick Queen: New Chinatown Glossy Pencils

Thursday, June 18th, 2009 | Makeup, Photos, Stores | 5 Comments

Why I haven’t written about Lipstick Queen products yet, I don’t know!
Available at high-end department store Barneys New York, the Lipstick Queen cosmetics line by Poppy King seems to have developed from a mixture of luxury noir glamour and tongue-in-cheek vision.  (The line first become known for its fascinating Saint and Sinner lipsticks, light and intense versions of the same lipstick shade.)

Now, the latest example of why Lipstick Queen products so effectively capture our imagination is their new product, the Chinatown Glossy Pencil, inspired by both the Roman Polanski film, Chinatown, and also by New York’s Chinatown.  The minute I found out that the pencil has “Lipstick Queen” written on it in Chinese, I knew I had to try it!

The Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencils currently come in 5 bright-but-sheer colors, and these jumbo pencils even come with their own sharpener.
