Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor Lipstick

At Birchbox, trying new makeup is par for the course. We’ve dabbled in cerulean and navy liners and tested blue polishes of all shades, but blue lipstick? Yep, blue lipstick. The pigment swipes on a sheer, pretty plum shade and is made with moisturizing vitamin E for smoother, softer lips. Bonus: Teeth can appear whiter because of the blue tones. Cool, right?

Best lipstick ever!

I LOVE Hello Sailor! this isn't an opaque lipstick, but rather a smooth, moisturizing balm. It looks blue in the tube, but appears a berry shade with a hint of blue on your lips. It's actually very flattering, and very comfortable to wear, it feels great on my lips. I recommend it to everyone.

Words can't express how much I love this!
Purchased

I was so excited about this when I saw it online and HAD to have it. I tried it on the moment I ripped my box open and FELL IN LOVE! The berry hue, the sheer look and feel, and the fun color and packaging makes this product one of my new favorites in my makeup collection. BONUS: Apply the new Urban Decay ozone lip liner all over your lips before putting this on because it will keep the color longer!

Okay...but, not worth the price
Purchased

Disappointed with this. I was hoping it would plum up/raspberry up more. I have olive skin tone so purples, wines, burgandy are always my go-to lip color. It was extremely sheer (which would be okay if it just brought some more pigment). Feels good on my lips. Quite frankly...I could barely tell I was wearing anything. Total bummer for the price of this joke.
I do love the container and name! I wanted this to be worth it so bad!

Hello Sailor!
Purchased

This lipstick is SO moisturizing!!! I love the blue in the tube but not on the lips color. I normally just wear lip balm (no tint) and the hint of color my lips get from this is just perfect. My lips are naturally a medium pink so the sheer blue deepens the color just enough. Yes, it is kind of expensive. And I don't know if my teeth look any whiter, but it's nice to not have to break out the mirror to re-apply. :)

Close, but not quite a win
Purchased

I like Lipstick Queen a lot, but I'm not quite so sure about this one. I dig obnoxious lipstick, so I kind of wish it were more opaque - more obviously blue lipstick. It doesn't really go on as a plum color, it mostly just makes me look a bit cyanotic. I have been putting it on over red lipstick, though, to cool down the red a bit, which looks nice and lets me get a bit more variation out of the reds I have.

Sheer color, very moisturizing
Purchased

I really like this product, it's great worn by itself, appears as a sheer plum on my lips (my skin tone is fair to light). I tend to have to apply a lip balm before most lipsticks, but it was not necessary with this. To me, this is more of a tinted balm than a lipstick (I have not tried it layered over another lipstick). Although hydrating, the color does not last long.

Perfect Blue

I love all these Lipstick Queen's that are similar to this product. Nothing bad I can say about this, my lips are always feeling nice and it leaves a subtle colour that I can layer with others. I use these more so as a "chapstick" type and works for me that way. I don't mind shelling out the extra bit for it since it works so nice. They look really cool too!

Lipstick Queen Addict

I love all Lipstick Queen products! They colors are always amazing. They are often somewhat opaque and that sheer quality allows me to layer them for awesome effects. Hello Sailor gives a purplish blue shade, with the first swipe giving you great tint and future swipes building to a rich color. I layer it with the Frog Prince and I love the combo.

Not worth it

I was so excited to try this product because I’d heard so many great things about this brand. I tried the lipstick and it literally didn’t do anything except make me look like a kid who just ate a blue popsicle.
