Perfect your application with Lipstick Queen's Invisible Liner.

Lipstick Queen

Birchbox Breakdown

Sure, it’s called a lipstick, but we think this supremely moisturizing and wearable formula deserves its own category. Unlike some heavy, chalky formulas, Medieval is a hydrating veil, delivering just enough sheer pigment to give you a perfectly berry-stained pucker. Even the most lipstick-averse will love this silky, wearable shade — and if you’re a color pro, simply layer it on for more oomph.

How it Works

Lipstick Queen perfects its formulas so that they feel good and look good. This formula has a Vitamin E base to make it the smoothest, most wearable lipstick you’ve tried.

How to Use

Use just like you would any other lipstick, but remember that you can layer the color on until you get your desired hue. A single swipe leaves your lips looking tinted but natural; two swipes gives you a noticeable red; and three swipes delivers a full-on crimson pout.

Great color, feels like buttah!

This winter really did a number on my lips, this was such a relief after realizing that every lipstick in my bag was too irritating and drying. The color is a pretty soft sheer red that builds nicely-I have a feeling this is the kind of shade that looks different but amazing on everyone. So silky smooth and moisturizing, not goopy or sticky at all. I love the nice metal tube it comes in as well, it has a nice feel and weight that you don't get from drugstore lipsticks. A bit of a splurge but worth it when you need more excitement than clear Vaseline!

The go-to lipstick

This is my everyday lipstick and has been for several years. It's very versatile, hydrating and the perfect shade. I'm always open to new lip colors but ultimately return to this one.

Not worth the price

This is a nice lipstick, but nothing any more special than something I would have bought from the drug store. The shade is pretty and I'll continue to wear it, but I won't be buying it again.

Worth Every Penny

I have been stalking Lipstick Queen for some time -- but it's hard to convince myself to pay that $$ for a single tube of something I've never tried. Have to say... it is worth every penny. The texture is AMAZING. Leaves lips feeling cushiony and moist (not slick...but moist). I bought Medieval. While intimidating in the tube, the shade gives the perfect hint of red to my lips -- enhancing what nature gave me. Beautiful shade. Will order multiples for office, home and purse.

love!

I rarely, if ever, make a repeat buy of a cosmetic. But this lipstick is my one exception. It is the perfect shade of red. It goes with everything and packs a punch without being too obvious about it.

the perfect tinted balm

The best way to describe this is a tinted lip balm which is perfect for me as I am not really into wearing lipstick. It is moisturizing and the perfect amount of color for that just-bitten look on your lips. You can apply this without a mirror since it is sheer yet you can control the amount of color by adding more layers. I would definitely recommend this product!

Pretty Great

This red looks bright in the tube but goes on very sheer. It's a great every day color, but can be layered for more of an impact. The color fades quickly, and I find myself reapplying every hour or so.

The lip color I've been searching for!

In the tube this color appears dark and rich. However, when I put it on, it was so sheer and perfect. I have very pale skin, but vey dark eyes and hair, so trying to find a lip color that isn't too much or not enough has been a decades long struggle. The best part of this lip color is if I want a more intense and dramatic look, I just apply a second or third coat. All my daily and special event looks in one tube and moisturizing to boot! I'm stocking up!

A pretty, sheer stain

Don't let the color in the tube fool you...this goes on beautifully sheer and adds a sheer stain of color. Very pretty, and I love the packaging.

Lovely

This is the first Lipstick Queen product I've ever purchased, though I've admired their products for a long time. It was everything I expected it to be! Lovely color - a single swipe leaves a sheer, nice everyday color, that can easily be built into a much more striking look. The color is fresh and not overdone. Also feels kind of like a balm, not waxy or dry like a lot of lipsticks. Impressed with the packaging too, it is simple and minimal and elegant (I hate overdone "cutesy" packaging) but is attractive and very high quality, the metal case feels sturdy. I'm a convert! Will definitely be buying more LQ, I have tons on my wishlist!
