Berry Chic- Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Mystery Pushes all the Right Buttons

I have waxed poetic about my love for the Lipstick Queen Oxymoron glosses before, and my general experience with the brand has left me craving more. Well folks, there is a new lip product from the Queen of Lipsticks, and it has me all hot and bothered. Of course I am talking about the new Chinatown Glossy Pencil.

With fun packaging inspired by New York City’s Canal Street, Chinatown Glossy stick is a jumbo-sized pencil that houses a super-moisturizing, pleasantly pigmented glossy lipstick. The shades appear to be super bright on first glance, but are actually very wearable on. These conveniently combine the concept of lipstick pencil and gloss in one, and did I mention this chubby pencil comes with a super-sized sharpener too?

The shade I got was Mystery, which is a deep purple that looks almost black in the tube, but actually swatches a gorgeous sheer berry/plum on my pigmented lips. I love the precision in application I get with this chubby pencil, and I love how smoothly and evenly it applies. This baby keeps my flapping lips super moisturized all day, and lasted through a full workday.

I am going to be quite honest; I am usually not a fan of glossy lipsticks because I find them to be too sheer, too slippery, and too short on wear time. Happily, I experience none of these problems with this glossy pencil. Wear and pigmentation were superb, and I got so many compliments on this particular shade. I am in love!

Of course here are some swatches for you:

I am loving the Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil, and I am convinced that you will love it too! Be sure to check them out by visiting the Lipstick Queen website. Tell me in the comments what you are loving right now!
