Lipstick Queen: Let Them Eat Cake Lipstick Review

Lipstick Queen's Let Them Eat Cake Lipstick (Barneys, Ulta, Lipstick Queen) was on my Beauty Wish List this Summer. Honestly I loved the name, but was unsure of the color. Add to that, it was only available at Barney's at the time (NYC) and $45! Well, that was a lot to chew! HaHaHa I was already disappointed with Christian Louboutin and his $50 Rouge Louboutin Nail Lacquer HaHaHa But I was reassured, when one of my readers, Rosemary of NYC Style and a Little Cannoli (who lives in NYC), went to Barney's after seeing my post (she loves sweet things also) and purchased it. She loved it! So that made me feel better, but I still held off. Well, I finally got the nerve and ordered it! I must say it is frosted fantastic-ness! The lipstick has a pinkish, purple-ish velvet and foil outer package. It's encased in a hard metal and magnetic closure lipstick case. This lipstick pays homage to Marie Antoinette. This lipstick is textured (but honestly, you don't feel it after you apply it...ah-mazing! hate grittiness!) and it gives off a sugary-iced frosted look. It's very smooth and decadent. Wear it alone, or atop another lipstick (accent lipstick). Do you know I would purchase another one? I love it that much.and I DON'T buy $45 lipsticks for anything. HaHaHa This one surprised me! It's my first Lipstick Queen lipstick and if their other lipsticks are like this one, then I'm in trouble. HaHaHa I guess I'll have to try Tom Ford's $50 lipstick. HaHaHa Do you like my Marie Antoinette cards? They're about the size of playing cards (but open like a greeting card). I got them on eBAY! I was looking for something else and ran across them (in fact BEFORE I purchased the lipstick...so I took it as a sign to buy the lipstick! HaHaHa). The cake? Oh, I just picked that up for a family gathering and thought it would fit in with this post. LOL Have a Frosted Fun-licious week!

  16. Kim, I really love the colour of this lipstick. You look beautiful and I usually only spend a bit extra on certain brand lippies, like Dior and Chanel, that's my most expensive lipsticks, otherwise I try to save, haha. Charming photos. :)

  22. Hi Kim, this lipstick is fit for a Queen. Very nice colour and packaging. It is more glossy than Matte. For sure Marie Antoinette will enjoy trying this out.

  23. This shade of pink looks fantastic on you, though I usually prefer darker colours and reds on you, this makes an exception. Everything in this post looks so sweet and fabulous!!!!

  28. What an absolutely gorgeous shade, Kim! I haven't seen one like it from any other brand - and that's saying something. I'm all for spending a little extra on a good lipstick as long as it's something really different, and this definitely fits the bill. Plus, that packaging is too pretty :)

  32. First I must say how much I enjoyed reading this review...you have the most adorable way of writing, very entertaining....

    Those cards are supercute and I'm not suprised that you took them as a sign to buy the lipstick! I even though (upon first glance) that they came together with the lipstick (that has a cute packaging, right?)

    Finally, the lipstick looks great on you...such a lovely shade of pink. I really like those earrings you're wearing- they remind me a bit of Marie Antoinette herself and all that decor:)

  45. Kim, I've always wanted to try a Lipstick Queen lipstick as I've heard nothing but the best about these (now, from you, too--I know it's good!). The fact that this one is a frosted mauve hue--is an extra plus in my book--plus, Marie Antoinette--sold! You look gorgeous, Doll!!! xx T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  47. Goodness, that is a lot for a lip color! I'm glad it was worth the price, though of course I think I'd then never want to wear it and feel like I had to 'save' it for a special occasion (or something ridiculous like that)
