I would like to open my review by welcoming spring! Early sunrises, late sunsets and the chirping of the birds in the morning, I enjoy the most! Today, I am reviewing Lipstick Queen Cupid’s Bow Pencil in Eros. Lipstick Queen describes this shade as “hotter than hot pink”. It is, indeed, a beautiful matte pink shade, which gives a velvety finish to the lips. To know more, please continue to read.
Inspired by the artful precision of a perfectly applied cupid’s bow, this jumbo pencil is packed with pigment and works just like a lipstick and lip liner together in one. Loaded with hydrating ingredients to keep your pout in perfect condition, these pencils give lips a velvety drama that can be drawn on with one simply stroke. Lips are instantly saturated with rich, plush pigments and a dramatic yet moisture rich satin matte finish. Naughty, nice and playful, with arrow like precision, just like Cupid himself!

My Experience with Lipstick Queen Eros Cupid’s Bow Pencil:
IMBB has really got me experimenting with new products and believe me I am really enjoying this phase of my life, touchwood! In fact I am surprised with myself; I have discovered a person hidden in me, or it was always there? Coming to the review, I have two lip crayons in my vanity right now one from Jane Iredale (review pending) and the second one I got from Lipstick Queen (this one).
Eros is a beautiful hot pink or a light magenta pink. It is a matte shade, which gives a velvety finish to my lips. The texture is smooth, creamy and soft. It glides easily and enables smooth application. It does not smudge or spread. This shade is intensely pigmented and very long lasting. After tea or coffee, it remains on the lips as if freshly applied. It tends to become dull after meals, but still remains. It does not easily transfer to cups or glasses, however if you press hard then it transfers, especially if you happen to kiss someone.
When I first got it and just happened to do a trial swatch on my hand and did not bother to remove the swatch, the stain was there till next day morning. This should be enough to tell you about the lasting power because I must have washed my hand several times. It does not dry my sensitive lips, keeps them hydrated and soft and supple. It gives a beautiful definition and a radiant, velvety finish to my lips. Yes, love this new addition to my vanity!
