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.
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!5
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.5
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!5
My only wish is that it stayed on longer, but I love this lipstick anyway! It feels nice on my lips and the color is really pretty.5
This is like a grown-up version of all those tinted balms I loved to collect as a teen, but without the waxy feel or synthetic flavoring. Great buildable color for all skin tones. I have neutral yellowish undertones (I'm sallow, and not in the sexy vampire way!) but this makes my lips pop without seeming as obvious as lipstick. Not sticky or heavy, even with three coats. It's so smooth, and it matches every outfit, any time of day. It gives a bit of a sheen, so if you want matte you should look elsewhere. It seems to feather a bit, so I'm using it with liner or a little balm underneath.4
This color is amazing. It leaves my lips feeling smooth and the more you put on, the more color you get! It's an amazing color and I will continue to buy!5
I've been eyeing Lipstick Queen lipsticks for sometime and I finally splurged with my points and bought Medieval. The description is right- it is sheer, much closer to a gorgeous, high-end balm than a lipstick. But it is the perfect red for anyone. You just can't go wrong with this! My lips are always so dry and lipstick just doesn't last for me. This product is so moisturizing and so much more glamorous than a plain old lip balm. I foresee Medieval as a staple in my purse!5
I have been obsessed with this lip treatment ever since I bought it on a whim at an anthropologie store last year. I was running low and decided to see if birchbox carried it so I could buy another tube and was so happy to find it! This lipstick goes on sheer with a sweet red tint-- the packaging says that the color mimics a beauty treatment from medieval times in which women would rub lemon into their lips in order to give them a red tint. This stuff is super moisturizing, makes my lips really soft, and the color is really pretty!5
I love the versatility of being able to adjust the color on this depending on my mood - perfect day or night!5
I purchased this to try for a friend that never wears color...I wanted to give her Black Honey (my usual "natural" lip tint)or this and I LOVE this so much I am keeping one for myself...I am gonna let her try both and see which she prefers...this is a perfectly natural lip color appropriate for anyone, even a young preteen who may insist on wearing a tint...this is so natural and lovely!5
