The only difference between saints and sinners is that every saint has a past while every sinner has a future.
I visited NYC two weeks ago and spent some time loitering in front of the Lipstick Queen counter at Barneys. The SA was very helpful and let all three of us try the entire collection. Tbone caved on the red sinner shade while I opened my wallet to purchase the sinner shade of Rose. We stayed away from the saint shades because deep in our hearts we are very naughty girls.
Actually...the sinner shades are opaque while the saints are a sheer formula.
This shade concept is genius. Each of the ten colors has a sinner and saint counterpart.
The standout shades are the Red(think Dita Von Teese) and the Rose. The sinner's formula is heavily pigmented with no hint of shimmer or frost. It is a matte-like formula that is easy to wear. It does not dry out your lips or require around the clock maintenance. The saint shades give you just a hint of color.
Poppy King is a lipstick fanatic.
She is obsessed with lipstick and vows that her line will only be about lipstick. She sounds like someone that I could be friends with.
The SA dished on a future gloss product called Oxymoron.
I swore that I would not blog about it so all I say is.....I can not wait to get my hands on it.
This is a company that will be creating lippie lemmings for years to come.
