It's finally here: a lipstick for those women who hate lipsticks. Lipstick Queen has come out with Velvet Rope, a silky smooth, mega pigmented lip shade that isn't like other lipsticks. A favorite is Brat Pack ($50, available this month at Barneys New York and Space NK), a bright red that smooths on like silk and smells of mint. Plus, it wears down so well, you don't get that ugly red ring around the outside of your lips when it's gone. We're sold.
