The Law of Attraction
Frosted lipstick is not, and never will be, my jam. But the delicate veil of gold shimmer found in Lipstick Queen’s new Metals collection had me hooked in one swipe. Founder of the brand, Poppy King, was inspired to create this unique finish by her high-school chemistry class, and how magnetic metals “exert a force on the world around them.” Interestingly enough, she explained, lip color exhibits the same ability. The brilliant sheen in this formulation can be attributed to finely milled metallic pearls and rich pigments. And although there is a nude and pillar-box red in the trio, I was like a moth to a flame upon uncapping the bold burgundy—a fatal and, dare I say it, slightly frosted attraction, indeed.
