The Blue Lipstick

Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor

I just read an article about Lipstick Queen’s new lipstick color called “Hello Sailor.” It is actually navy blue in color. Someone from Allure magazine tested the lipstick and found to her surprise that the lipstick was an attractive raspberry color once she got it on her lips. The theory goes; blue and red make purple or a subtle shade somewhere in between. The funny thing is I actually remember a blue lipstick just like this one.


Many years ago I joined a makeup club. This was before on-line stores so it was pretty much a catalog thingy. You paid a flat fee each month and they sent you makeup based on a questionnaire you filled out when you signed up. You were supposed to get colors that matched your skin tone and likes and dislikes. I either filled the form out wrong or they just didn’t pay attention, either way I quit after a short time. 
You would think it would look like this...
I did learn a couple of things, one, brown and purple eye shadows do go together and if a lipstick is blue it will still look good. In one of my shipments I received a lipstick that was blue in color but produced a beautiful natural pink stain on my lips. It was one of my favorites for quite some time, until it ran out and I was never able to find it again.


Now that I know of another I just might have to give it a try. It is a little pricy at $20.00 at the local Nordstrom but it might be worth it. It has vitamin e and if it’s anything like the one I had years ago it made my lips feel soft and moisturized. It was the perfect summertime lipstick because it added just the right tint and it felt light, no heavy gloss for me. I may take a trip to the mall today, maybe they have free samples.
Allure Magazine tester found it looked like this...so pretty
