Liptropolis is the first edition in the Lipstick Queen Library a collectable storybook series of limited edition lipstick trios. Liptropolis tells the story of Lipstick in The City and is a tribute to chic women in cities everywhere!

Liptropolis introduces a new formula. Not as sheer as the popular Saints, and not as opaque as the Sinners, these medium pigment lipsticks allow great laydown of the shade yet are slightly see-through with a super moist sheen.

Each lipstick contains Shea Butter, Avocado Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil to moisturize, soften and protect the lips.

The name Liptropolis was inspired by the 1927 Fritz Lang film "Metropolis." Each of the three new lipstick shades in the Liptropolis collection is named after a different New York City neighbourhood:

  • SOHO – the fashionable red
  • Upper East – the elegant nude
  • Central Park – the refined peach

Comments about Lipstick Queen Liptropolis Volume 1, 1 ea:

This is a lovely collection with wearable colors. Plus you save a few dollars per lipstick off retail by buying this adorably packaged trio. Unfortunately for me, the shade Upper East is the only one that brings something new enough to my quickly growing lipstick collection. I like the formula and prefer it to the Saint lipsticks from her collection as these offer more color payoff. They have a shiny/satin finish. I love that the lipsticks are unscented and flavorless. The colors are beautiful, but I think Soho is the only shade properly described.

Soho is a blue-leaning red, but would likely work for most skin tones (I usually look better in warmer lipsticks, but can wear this color). A comparable red is The Balm Read My Lips in Wanted -Soho is just a bit deeper and more opaque. It's the most dramatic color in the trio.

I've been looking for a color like Upper East, but would not describe it as "The Elegant Nude". It's a warm pink, almost bubble gum or coral tone that has a brightness to it that I think makes it a far call from nude. However, it's the sheerest of the three and I guess some may consider it in the range of nudes. It can be layered for intensity. I don't own NARS Niagara, but I recall it being a similar color (with the NARS being creamier). My favorite lipstick of the three.

Despite my naturally rosy lips, I cannot imagine Central Park looking like "The Refined Peach" on anyone. Definitely the least accurate color description -who chose to describe it as peach??? It's rather standout as a bright and warm pink/poppy red color. It's nearly identical to NARS sheer lipstick in Manhunt (tried on side-by-side), but doesn't stain the lips and is not as sheer a formula. (I personally would stick with my NARS color, but will use this one up first). I think Soho and Central Park would be more wearable for every day if they were a little less intense, but again, great colors and formula. Just be weary if you actually want the colors described.

      Comments about Lipstick Queen Liptropolis Volume 1, 1 ea:

      The color names were completely misleading. The Elegant Nude is pink, the Refined Peach is pinker, and the Fashionable Red is pinkest. I have some of Lipstick Queen's other lipsticks, which I really like, but these were a disappointment. The best part of product was the box they came in.

      Comments about Lipstick Queen Liptropolis Volume 1, 1 ea:

      Lipstick Queen is without a doubt my favorite lipstick brand, and I am a fan of the lip liners as well. Poppy King, the brand's creator, is known for combining innovative concepts with vintage flair, so I was really excited to see this new set. The Liptropolis formula does a wonderful job of covering the middle ground between opaque and sheer lipstick, as promised. This three lipstick set is also well-priced in comparison to typical Lipstick Queen lipsticks, which cost about $20 each. Like virtually all of Lipstick Queen's shades, these are designed to flatter most if not all skin tones. As for the formula, it is fairly hydrating, with impressive color pay-off. The packaging (and I am not just referring to the "Liptropolis" book that the set is housed in) is also top notch as well: each dark gray metal lipstick bullet has a slight grip to it yet it doesn't manage to pick up all of the lint in the universe while it's stashed away in your handbag. The color selection is pretty wise as well, though I wondered why King chose to include to such similar shades in the set (nude - more on this below - and peach) instead of replacing one of those with a darker shade like something in the berry or wine range.

      My only complaint? I think that the official color descriptions are significantly off, and generally lacking in detail. I have worn all three lipsticks, and in the interest of helping others here's what I have found (and for reference, I have medium olive skin, with pretty pigmented lips):
      Soho: is a neutral, candy-apple red (in other words, a tad darker than a cherry red like that of Saint Red);
      Central Park: a neutral, medium peach. I found it flattering, but also noticed that it pulled pretty bright on me after a bit;
      Upper East: is not *anywhere near* nude...I think that this has got to be an advertising error, in fact. Upper East is definitely a strong medium pink that flirts with fuchsia. I know that color is subjective, but even accounting for that there is no way that this is a nude lipstick. Regardess, it is a very wearable pink and I am happy to have it, as non-fuchsia pinks are difficult for me to find.

      Moral of the story: if these colors sound appealing to you and you are interested in trying Lipstick Queen, I would certainly recommend this set. Just don't expect any nude lipstick!
