Lip Service: Lipstick Queen’s ‘Hello Sailor’

Anyone remember ‘mood’ lipsticks? They’d come in these weird shades of green and blue and orange… and they’d all turn this hideous shade of fuchsia on everyone. The idea that they actually adjusted to an individual ‘mood’ was just a sales gimmick. It was the same color… no matter who wore it.

Poppy King of Lipstick Queen has decided to take us back to the ‘mood lipstick’ era, with a new blue lipstick called ‘Hello Sailor.’

This blue lipstick actually does NOT turn the same color on everyone. I’ve seen some pale skinned beauties featuring a distinctly berry colored lip. On me, it’s more of a soft rose. It wears very neutral, and I think it’s safe to give this lipstick ‘apply in the dark’ status, because it’s pretty hard to get it wrong.

As I understand it, Hello Sailor is a Barney’s exclusive. You can find out more about this ‘updated’ version of the quintessential mood lipstick HERE.
