Lipstick Queen: Let them eat cake

Quickly ladies, I need to be diffused. I want this lipstick badly, but its $45. Somebody tell me a really good dupe and/or talk me out of buying.Pic: Temptaliaupload_5805545151529636201.jpg

Did you get the lipstick? Can we see swatches?

Hi czikimonkey! Thanks for asking :smileyhappy:

 

During Birthday/Mother's Day week? You bet I did!

 

I just took some pics in boring house light, but I want to do some more in daylight.swatch2.jpgswatch3.jpgswatch1.jpg

 

I like it! There is certainly some frost in it, but it easier to wear than one might think. It is a neutral/MLBB/pinkish shade but spicier!

It looks amazing.  Great purchase.  Glad no one talked you out of it.

I'm tempted by it, but what's holding me back is that I don't much like Clinique's Bamboo Pink. I think LTEC looks different enough to be possibly more flattering on me, but I wish I could see it in person before splurging!

I found a good lipstick dupe! It has slightly less sparkle though.

A really close dupe but perhaps? slightly more lavender/cooler (a good thing in my opinion) is Clinique Heather Moon -- and it's only $15!  It's more frost/subtle shimmer than "metallic" microglitter (which seems like LTEC might be to me).

 

I think that large pic on top from Temptalia is really warm compared to other LQ LTEC reviews I've seen, but I could be wrong.  She does do great reviews and pics!

 

I think it might read a little warm on Temptalia because she has very warm peachy lips underneath and it's not a mega opaque color to hide that.

 

Here is Heather Moon:

Here is LQ LTEC in a review I read that calls it a "lilac" shade, cool toned lip but with gold (warm) shimmer, so very layered/perhaps versatile:

What I normally do in these cases is go and see it for myself. If you are just me-eh about it when you swatch it, pass on it and get a dupe. If you absolutely love it, then it's worth the money!

 

Possible dupe: I own Nars "sexual healing" (I hope that doesn't get bleeped). It is very similar but less pink. Sephora sells it $26.

Re: Lipstick Queen: Let them eat cake

Hi Jay -

 

When I goggled to find the size of the lipstick, I did notice it for sale on the Lipstick Queen website. (Yes! More enabling!)

Re: Lipstick Queen: Let them eat cake

It is exclusively at Barney's New York.

 

Maybe it may come out elsewhere in the future.

Re: Lipstick Queen: Let them eat cake

I will add my 2 cents' worth...i have the CLinique bamboo pink, it is gorgeous. also, there is a bamboo pink lipgloss, and it is much more of a sheer pink shimmer like the LTEC  pictured.  You guys are making me want pretty much all of these colors, now!  I do agree that you could very likely spend 45 dollars trying to find the duplicate. how long does a lipstick last you? i have never, ever, e.v.e.r used up a lipstick and repurchased it. ever. i just don't use them that much. so, 45 dollars for me would be a once in a lifetime thing ( for that color anyway) it isnt like you would go through one a month...so, maybe you could justify it? the  other colors look amazin, though... I like them all now! :smileyhappy:
