Lipstick Queen Aloha | The Perfect 'Sunny' Red

I’m not sure what has come over me, but I am having a bit of a red lip moment, especially orange toned or what I like to call ‘sunny’ reds! This shade of red compliments the season perfectly and is the best shade to flatter my skintone. I spotted the Lipstick Queen Endless Summer lipstick in Aloha on their Instagram feed, the beautiful orange metallic packaging contrasting with the red bullet of the lipstick looked so pretty and summery, I just had to give it a try (and they were offering free shipping in the US!).

What I love about this lipstick is that it is actually incredibly sheer, even though it looks so vibrant in the bullet. This makes it so easy to apply even without a mirror, and leaves a lovely wash of sunniness to the lips, without feeling heavy. It actually feels more like a balm as it is incredibly hydrating on the lips keeping them moisturised and nourished, but the colour still stays put for a good few hours. It also contains SPF15 to protect the lips from harmful UVA/B rays, making it a winner during these summer months.

I love everything about this lipstick, it has one of the nicest formulations I have tried recently and also comes in three other shades, which are now well and truely at the top of my wishlist! One of my top picks for the summer.

Available from or Ulta in the US ($22) or Space NK in the UK (£18).
