Hello Sailor by Lipstick Queen might appear to be the most intimidating lipstick on the market. It. Is. Blue. As in, blue blue (think smurfs, blueberries, bluejays...you get the idea). While blue is a pretty color (my personal favorite), most of us aren't eager to slap on a blue lipstick. But that's where Hello Sailor is misleading.
Rather than apply as a rich navy blue color (as the bullet above would suggest), Hello Sailor is delightfully sheer when applied. It gives off barely any color at all, but does add a healthy looking sheen to the lips. After sitting on the lips for a few minutes, Hello Sailor makes it appear as if I ate a bowl of blueberries hours ago. It gives a subtle blueish purple cast to my lips. Poppy King, the creator of Lipstick Queen, describes Hello Sailer as a whole new take on the blackberry lips trend--sheer and modern, instead of dark and vampy.
