I am already royally impressed by The Lipstick Queen, a new line of amazing opaque and ultra-sheer "sinners and saints" lipsticks. So I am very excited for creator Poppy King's new product, a lip gloss collection called Oxymoron, which hits stores this week.
What makes this product so unique is that it’s a matte finish lip gloss. Yep, a gloss with a non-glossy finish. Now doesn’t the name oxymoron make perfect sense? This product does to your lips what blush does to your cheeks, giving you a sweet, romantic glow in a less-than obvious way.
The $20 gloss is available in four shades with hysterical names: honest politician (pink/brown), free ride (apricot), deafening silence (beige nude), and minor crisis (rosy pink). All of the colors are designed to look like "lip blushes," so although they are matte, they are more subtle than you might expect.
Simply apply them with your fingertip or the mini-brush that comes with purchase. Oh, and feel free to blend a little bit on your cheeks too!
