Sinner 90 Percent Pigment
Color: Rose Sinner
This was my first matte lipstick ever and I really love it. The pigment is great and there is a beautiful range of colors - I could buy 10 I think. There are some downfalls to it though - on me, it can be a bit drying. I think I'm going to try applying over chapstick to see if it's better but I figured as it is marketed to be moisturizing I shouldn't have to... wasn't really the case. Secondly, it doesn't fade beautifully. Throughout the day I had to reapply as the lipstick stained only the rim of my lips - not a pretty look. I would buy more as in general I was really happy with the lipstick and I think the quality is quite good for the price, but some improvements could be made. Would be interested to see how these hold up against Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution lipsticks....

Super colour and staying power
This was my first Lipstick Queen purchase( I am a MAC addict) and it compared really well regarding the great pink colour and its'ability to stay put for most of the day.
At the end of the day, there was still a hint of colour.
I loved the matt sheen and have been complimented on the bright, but not garish quality of Hot Rose Sinner.
I will definitely be sinning again!

Found my holy grail lipstick!
Just happened upon this in store. I'd pretty much given up the idea of ever wearing lipstick again - it's been a few years now. My drawers are full of expensive mistakes that just don't look great once I get them home. BUT THIS... Absolutely perfect! Not shouty or obvious but enough of an brown/red tint to lift my whole complexion & define my lips. Texture-wise, it's matt but not dull & blocky, not at all drying applied to bare but well hydrated lips & has some real staying power.
It's made me want to run out & buy every lipstick Poppy King has to offer.
I couldn't love this anymore if I tried!!
N.B. If you can't get to a store to try, search for images of colour swatches as they're not well represented online.
