I was very firmly against metallic lipstick for a while. I’m not sure what changed, but now I want all of the shiny things and glitter lipsticks. Is it because Kesha is back? Probably.
Also, fun fact, I originally typed “mouse” and it took me an embarrassing amount of time to figure out how to fix the word.
Anyway. Metallic lipstick. I got curious and picked up Hard Candy’s Metallic Mousse in Queen of Hearts.
I included the side view because this lipstick comes in a giant metallic tin that makes it look HUGE. It’s not huge. You only need to apply a really thin coat, so I’m not as irritated as I was when I first opened it. I hate intentionally misleading packaging. These people know I can’t visualize a fluid ounce.
This is me at the beginning of the day.
And me at the end.
This formula isn’t the greatest. It doesn’t streak or peel, but it’s sticky ALL DAY and comes off on my water bottle like no other.
A pro for the color is that it matches my natural lip color enough that when it inevitably disappears from the bottom half of my top lip, I don’t look like I’m walking around with just an outline of old lipstick.
I’m going to wear it until I run out, but I’m not getting any more colors or repurchasing.
I also think this may be a gateway lipstick for purple glitter lipstick territory. Send help.
