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.
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
Great — even if, or especially if, you have difficulty wearing red.
Highly recommended for a variety of skin tones. Goes on sheer, which I love. That said, if you're looking for something super matte, pair this with a lip pencil or another lipstick.
I like how berry kissed my lips look after putting this on. It's very moisturizing and smooth when I apply it.4
I love this lipstick! It's great for those who aren't that confident wearing lip color, as it looks natural, just slightly brighter. But it also builds easily with just a couple of extra swipes into a gorgeous sheer red. I honestly think it would suit everyone, and it has a lovely moisturizing feel and doesn't wear off unevenly. Even for non-lipstick wearers, this is a must-have product!5
This product is foolproof, no matter what color eyes, skin, hair, outfit you have on, this lip product is going to work. I have an extensive lipstick collection, but this is always on high rotation - I use it several times a week, if not every day. It turns my lips a wonderful color that looks like my own natural color but better ("my lips but better" MLBB). It goes on creamy, and lasts quite a long time. Then a stain is left. The packaging is divine, the case does not collect thumbprints. It is beautiful to pull out and apply in public, and it clicks securely and locks the cap tight. I joke to my boyfriend that I need two tubes, one for my purse and one for the bathroom, so I am never without. Hopefully he takes the hint!5
