When a normal woman (as distinguished from a total wacko) says something like this, I’m inclined to pay attention:
The only lipstick I’ve ever used up completely is Lipstick Queen’s Hello Sailor. I’ve bought three of them.

So I looked it up, and it’s, um, blue. Not a tiny bit blue either; this is some serious navyesque shade. This is, of course, by design:
Turn the blackberry lip trend on its head with this ultra-modern, navy blue sheer lipstick. In a nod to the nautical, Hello Sailor tints lips in a cool, berry tone with a hint of deep sapphire.
The sheer blue pigment is suspended in a protective Vitamin E treatment that can be worn alone as a nourishing lip tint or teamed with its Berry sisters in Saint or Sinner, to add a topaz glint to your berry lips.
- Turns a sheer plum on the lips
- Pure Vitamin E keeps lips ultra-moisturized
- Teeth appear whiter due to blue tones
So you don’t look cyanotic after all:
It’s a transparent blue! It plays off the pink in your lips and ends up looking slightly berry-colored.

“Hello Sailor” sells for $25, which strikes me as a heck of a deal if you think enough of it to buy three sticks.
