Get The Smoky Look With Black Lace Rabbit

Lipstick Queen

Last month I decided to do a mail shipping service from the US (more to come on that soon), so I spent a while searching for products that I wanted which I couldn’t get here in the UK. From the first thing I read about the Black Lace Rabbit lipstick (from the Lipstick Queen brand) I was intrigued, what it essentially was was a black lipstick with a bit of shimmer/ glitter which you put on top of other lipsticks in order to give them a darker more smoky look. Now I love dark lips and suit them much more than bright lips so knew this would be something interesting to try.

I could not find anywhere stocking it in the US which offered free shipping (and I didn’t want to pay for shipping twice with the mail forwarding service) but low and behold I found it listed on the Space NK UK site. It was out stock but available for backorder so last month I placed my order and waited patiently. Fortunately I only had to wait a few weeks before it dropped on my doorstep alongside some lovely free samples, cause who doesn’t love samples?!

Firstly the packaging of the Black Lace Rabbit Lipstick is just so pretty. I love anything black and the lace design just made it feel very halloweeny and gothic which is exactly the kind of packing I like. The casing of the lipstick itself felt pretty solid and not the flimsy style you sometimes find with more unique items like this. On first looks you can see the gold sprinkles running through the lipstick and itself it looks really pretty (if they did an opaque matte version of this I’d so buy it!)

If you choose to wear the lipstick on it’s own then it’s quite sheer and won’t produce a huge amount of colour on the lips but more of a smokey glittery sheen which is pretty but probably not something I’d wear. But now for the real challenge, using it alongside other lipsticks. I made sure that when I applied my base lipstick I waited a few seconds so as not to smudge the colour all over the Black Lace Rabbit lipstick, that would have been a disaster. Because it’s more sheer the lipstick glides over and allows the colour underneath to be seen but with a sort of filter and it’s absolutely beautiful.

I tried it with a bright red to begin with and was left with a slightly vampy red colour which is pretty much the lipstick I’ve been dreaming of for years so thanks, Black Lace Rabbit! I’ve tried it with pinks, corals, purples and other bright colours and it works on them all. The only thing I don’t feel it works with are nudes (unless they’re quite dark more browny) but then you wear a nude for it’s namesake reason so probably wouldn’t want to put this over the top.

Have you heard of Black Lace Rabbit before? Would you ever try something like this?

    I have never heard of Black Lace Rabbit before but if it works so well with other colours I definitely need it, I always struggle to wear lipsticks because my lips are quite pigmented!

    So I’ve never heard of this before but OH MY GOD I AM SOLD! I need one immediately, gold shimmer and black lippy is completely my thing. I wonder what it would do to a purple-y colour? BRB, purchasing…..haha!

  • Oh I was just looking a this the other day and was a bit disappointed at how sheer it was (the goth in me wanted it to be opaque, glittery goodness!) But wearing it over other colours makes total sense, I bet that looks divine. xx

  • I’ve not seen this or head of this before. Not my kind of shade but it does look nice.
