Review: Lipstick Queen Rear View Mirror Lip Lacquer

Rear View Mirror Lip Lacquer in shade Berry Tacoma
Lipstick Queen knows how to make a great lip product. I've loved the brand for years and can vouch for the performance and quality of each of its lipsticks. The Aussie brand recently launched a new lacquer range and I've been loving it. It is called Rear View Mirror and it is designed to emulate the same reflective surface of a shiny new car. Ambitious.

The Rear View Mirror Lip Lacquer, which launched in January 2019, is a glossstick that has a smooth, balm-like texture that melts on the lips. It is pigmented enough to add a hit of colour to the lips, while not covering them completely. However, for those that like their lip colours opaque, don't worry - this baby builds beautifully.

As for colours, Rear View Mirror is currently available in nine shades:

Little Nude Coupe - Pinky Beige Nude
Drive My Mauve - Mauve Infused Taupe
Thunder Rose - Warm Lively Pink
Joy Ride Java - Subtle Warm Cocoa
Little Red Convertible - Classic True Red
Berry Tacoma - Bright Raspberry
Fast Car Coral - Vibrant Ruby Red
Magenta Fully Loaded - Lustrous Bright Plum
Low Rider Raisin - Deep Plum Wine


The new lip lacquer provides the most beautiful non-sticky shine. It feels incredibly comfortable on the lips and has impressive lasting power, thanks to its inclusion of film formers (water-dispersible polymers). Its formula also includes vitamin E to keep those lips protected from free radical damage.

Each Rear View Mirror Lip Lacquer is £20 and available from net-a-porter.com.
