We’re not talking POPEYE…

Hello Sailor is the name of today’s product and I’ve been singing its praises to just about anyone who’ll listen. Now it’s your turn to hear about why this one item is all that and then some.

Some products are fun, some are user-friendly, some are life altering…this one is all the above. Lipstick Queen’s ‘Hello Sailor’ is a sheer lipstick that feels more like a balm. Its loaded with vitamin E so your lips stay moist and hydrated all day, but the kicker here is it’s blue.

Whoa people, I haven’t gone all punk rock between blogs! This blue lipstick (and I mean hardcore, navy blue) goes on smooth and essentially enhances your lips’ natural berry tones. While all the magazines push the ‘berry/wine’ lip, Hello Sailor is actually something real people can wear in real life. What I love most about this product is that it looks different on every single person who wears it. For $25, it’s like getting a custom-made balm from Poppy King herself.

Available directly from Lipstick Queen online, you can also purchase this item at Barneys, Space NK boutiques and from Net-a-porter (whose link is above).

I’ll admit, the sheer terror on peoples faces as you apply blue lip color to your pout is pretty fun, but in all honesty, this product delivers in every way. It’s easy to use (you don’t even need a mirror to apply it), its flattering on all lip shades and with this in your pocket you’re ready to go from day to night without a hitch.

Fyi, I love this stuff so much I have every intention of trying Lipstick Queen’s ‘Frog Prince’ once it becomes available. I’ll let you know if that one ends happily ever after…until then I’m all aboard…

G’day Mate Indeed…

Prediction: You are all going to love me for this one!

Australia has been responsible for providing the world with many great gifts; Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman, Baz Luhrmann, Ugg Boots, Poppy King, INXS, Olivia Newton-John, Helen Reddy (don’t judge me, everybody loves “You and me Against the World”), the list goes on and on.

At this point I’m fairly certain you are rereading the list above, nodding your head at every name mentioned but taking a double take at Poppy King. You may not know her name now but you will remember it well once you try today’s item of choice.

Poppy King is a native of Melbourne, Australia who wasn’t quite satisfied with the lipstick selections down under, so she did what most awesome, take charge ladies do, she decided to make her own. Lipstick Queen is that company and today’s product is their Invisible Lip Liner.

All I can say is AMAZING! This is the perfect product and for so many reasons. Not only does it work with absolutely any lipstick color out there, it works equally well with glosses and stains. For lack of a better phrase, this product is idiot proof.

To be honest, I’m pretty bad at drawing any form of line, anywhere, even with a ruler, so you can only imagine the difficulty I have trying to outline the shape of my lips. This product is 100% colorless, so basically, you cannot screw this up. Even with the reddest of colors, you get a perfect shape every time, with no color bleeding at all.

Thank you Australia for Poppy King. I can forgive you for your creation of Vegemite, but only because you are also responsible for the creation of my brother in law and niece!

So line away lip lovers, this item is the real deal!
