I picked up this Lipstick Queen lipstick—its deceptive hue is called Venetian Masquerade—as an afterthought a few months ago at Bigelow’s. I’d purchased another very serious lip color that day, and thought that would be the one I’d start wearing routinely, but instead, I just kept reaching for this stuff: it looks purply in the tube, but when applied, that quickly turns into a sweet berry-ish pink-ish hue that lasts surprisingly long. And it’s got a slightly glossier feel than most of the lipsticks I like—because mostly those are matte—but it’s not a sticky glossy, which really is the worst, just nice and light and emollient-feeling. I’m hanging on to the last dregs of my tube of it, which is rare for me with a lip color, because usually I lose interest. What are you down to the last drop of these days?
