A while ago, I had bought the shade “Private Party” from the Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope collection, and I absolutely loved that lipstick. So, I ended up buying one more shade from the same collection – “Brat Pack.” Read on to find out more about this shade and whether I loved this one as well.
This is pure glamour and luxury for your lips! A pigment-rich yet feather-light lipstick that delivers the drama and intensity of matte without compromising on comfort. The way this lipstick glides weightlessly onto your lips needs to be experienced to be believed!
- Glides weightlessly imparting rich, intense color in a single application with an ultra-soft, velvety texture.
- Vitamin E and Apricot Oil ensure lips remain moisturized and supple.
- The final addition of Peppermint Oil adds a clean and subtle scent.
My Experience with Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick – Brat Pack:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a gorgeous golden metal square case. The packaging looks and feels ultra luxe. It is slightly on the heavier side but that only makes it that much sturdier. The cap shuts with a magnetic closure. The name of the lipstick appears on a sticker on the bottom. The lipstick comes in an outer cardboard packaging which has a velvet feel to it. The outer packaging also looks quite luxurious. In short, a totally flaunt-worthy packaging which anybody will fall in love with.
Shade/Pigmentation: “Brat Pack” is a gorgeous glamorous shade of red. Lipstick Queen describes it as a pure red and indeed it is just red – no undertones of blue or orange or whatever.
Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen Founder had mentioned that this collection was inspired by the golden years of Hollywood when glamour was in every detail. And I must say this particular shade is everything I would associate with Hollywood glamour. Truly stunning!
The pigmentation of this lipstick is insane. It is deeply pigmented and only a single swipe is enough to deposit opaque color even on pigmented lips.
Texture/Finish/Staying Power: The texture of the lipstick is just perfect. It is creamy without being too soft or slippery. It glides on the lips like velvet and there is absolutely no tug. It is just incredible how little pressure is needed to get an opaque color intensity.
The lipstick has a light peppermint scent and you get a slightly tingly feeling when you first apply the lipstick, but that doesn’t linger for too long. The lipstick feels quite light on the lips and is very comfortable to wear. It keeps your lips feel moisturized and supple throughout its wear time which can be attributed to the presence of Vitamin E and apricot oil in its ingredients.
I noticed no feathering or bleeding even though this is a bright shade. It doesn’t settle into lip lines either.
The finish is velvet matte kind, not drying at all and with the perfect amount of sheen to give it some dimension. There is something about the finish of this lipstick which just feels and looks very glamorous.
The staying power of the lipstick is pretty good too. It does transfer but only slightly. It lasts for around 6 hours or so depending on what you are eating. The lipstick manages to look fresh and bright long after you have applied it and it fades evenly leaving a slight tint behind.
To summarize, this lipstick is a splurge for sure but one that you will not regret!
