Lipstick Queen’s Butterfly Ball collection of lipsticks has gotten some buzz, particularly since this collection is inspired by the famous quote from legendary boxer Mohammed Ali, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”

These lipsticks seem to be an exercise in juxtaposition – like sweet and sour or butterfly wings and bee stings – with the “sting” coming from the turquoise blue-purple flash of shimmer in each lipstick.

[fyi: Lipstick Queen is currently on sale at Gilt including the Chinatown Glossy Pencils, but unfortunately Butterfly Ball is not part of the sale!]

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.
