Lipstick Queen - Smitten

A few weeks ago I got my very first Lipstick Queen lipstick! I had been hankering after one for a long time and finally decided it was time to be brave, go and swatch a few and pick one. Well having swatched a few, okay a lot, I was really torn between which shade to get. The choice between Liptropolis - Elegant Nude, Butterfly Ball - Soft Rosebud Blush, Lipstick Queen Saint, Sunny Rouge or Smitten - Butterfly Ball.

In the end I opted for Smitten from the Butterfly Ball range, an absolutely stunning lipstick in a subtle rose shade. 

Described as being

"The light, airy and magical look of the butterfly wing is the ultimate in glamour produced exclusively by Mother Nature. All the subtle Butterfly Ball shades pay tribute to this. They are as sheer as a butterfly wing with a beautiful hint of shimmer and radiance when they catch the light. The formula is incredibly soft and moisturising to condition your lips, while dressing them in colour at the same time".

As well as being a stunning lipstick, the packaging is magical.  With a black and purple background, the Lipstick Queen and Butterfly Ball words stand out.  Then there is one side of the box which features two beautiful blue butterflies with the word 'smitten' written between them.  The lipstick tube again features the Lipstick Queen name and is a stunning mauve shade.

I absolutely love this lipstick, it is light once on the lips and the formula is incredibly soft and moisturizing and not in the slightest sticky. Each lipstick from this range is said to contain a subtle flash of blue pearl, which is flattering on the lips and also helps teeth appear whiter.

Priced at £22 it is an absolute bargain and I know already that I will be back for more from this range.

  8. I can't see how £22 for a lipstick is a bargain tbh. I've never heard of this brand before and the colour looks a little to sheer for me, however it is pretty. x
