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.

Every day red

I love the texture of this, it's not too glossy or gooey like a lot of sheer lip colors on the market. The color is a perfect flushed lip red however it does have the tendency to feather can be a little drying on my lips. The wear time is also pretty lousy so do as I do & wear it over an invisible liner/lip primer and these problems are solved!
I'm about to buy my third tube of this because the color and texture are perfect for a day time, casual red lip and I wear it a lot. This one is a staple lip product for me.

Took a few wearings, but now I'm in love
Purchased

I thought this would be more of a berry, so was slightly disappointed when it came in the mail, but now I can't stop wearing it. All you need is one swipe for a gorgeous wash of color (that looks natural!) - glad I gave this lipstick the chance to prove itself.

Feels & looks good
Purchased

I like the color and I like the feel of this lip stick. It's a little darker/redder than what I normally wear in the daytime, but plenty of women would wear this during the day. It's a nice product; I'd buy it again.

Lipstick for a no-lipstick day
Purchased

Lovely sheer red. My lips, only better. Doesn't dry like a stain but acts like a sheer one; then again, not slippery like a gloss (texture of a true lipstick). Glad I tried it.

less drying than other lipsticks, still drying!

Medieval is beautiful but you'd better be doin' lip scrubs and balmin' 'em up overnight if it's winter. Great degree of sheerness/buildability.

Love it!
Purchased

Perfect lip balm that offers color! The red was a slight red berry tint with one pass, as I put on more it got darker. Normally red lipsticks look bad on me, but this was a very pretty color. Definitely worth the price.

Nice layering
Purchased

I really like the smoothness of this lipstick and how it feels like I'm just wearing chapstick! I also like how the color can be intensified with layering. Love the color. Sometimes I have to put a lip balm over top to keep my lips moisturized, but it's winter, so that usually goes without saying.

amazing color
Purchased

I love the way this lipstick feels and colors. The color really enhances my natural lip color. And I have noticed after a reapply, it leaves a natural stain to my lips for the rest of the day. It feels very light and smooth on my lips and does not dry out my lips.

Not your grandmas lipstick
Purchased

This color looks scary in the tube but glides on like a balm. The more color you want the more you swipe on your lips. It adjusts color depending on the person wearing it and enhances your natural lip color. Love love love it!

Wow
Purchased

I feel compelled to join the chorus of those raving about this lipstick. I've just started re-wearing lip color after many years of going without, but am sticking mostly with glosses for the moment. I decided to give this a try, though, based on the rave reviews, and they are not wrong. It's a terrific, sheer, flattering color and it feels terrific on. I'm really impressed and now want to try other lipsticks from this brand. Worth the price.
