I was inspired by my little trip to see Amanda… so I decided to brighten up my face with a little shimmer and a lot of orange for this FOTD:

Lipstick Queen: Chinatown Glossy Pencils

I love this brand. I ignore it for months on end… then I pay attention to it… and I fall in love all over again. Lipstick Queen continues to wow me with fabulous formulas, high pigmentation and staying power.

I got a chance to play with the Chinatown Glossy Pencils, and had to reprimand myself for not doing so sooner!

Love these! First of all, they’re MASSIVE. Bigger than the NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils, AND they come with their own sharpener. They’re also cheaper (20.00) What’s awesome is that none of the colors are the same as NARS, so you could have both and never overlap. I ended up with the orange color, Genre:

LOVE! This is the color that stood out the most to me, but I’m sure I’ll be back at Space NK soon enough to swatch (and perhaps purchase) the rest. Lipstick Queen is back on my radar… watch out!
