Lipstick Queen Medieval Review and Swatches

I’m about to get all Medieval on you! Ha, I crack myself up. I so wanted to review Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick just so I can use that catch phrase. What? I’m easily amused, sue me.

Why was I under the impression Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick was a deeply pigmented, possibly matte lippie? Oh how the very confused I was. Turns out it’s an incredibly sheer, lightweight lipstick that’s simply gorg!


Jump for the review!

This lipstick was inspired by Medieval times when full coverage lipstick was considered a sin, hey they had lipstick in Medival times? Who knew? Better yet Lipstick Queen explains that women used lemons to stimulate the lips and stain their lips a see through blood red. Ha! That’s like my tip of the day who wants to hit up Trader Joe’s with me for some lemons? Ok, maybe mess, we’ll stick with Lipstick Queen Medieval Lipstick, same effect and pretty packaging too!

I’ve been privy to much of Lipstick Queen’s line and have loved just about everything I tried thus far. For some odd reason or another I was under the impression that Medieval was in fact a very bold, bright, matte red. Is there any reason why I was under said impression? It’s any wonder as Lipstick Queen is known for brighter, bolder shades of lipstick that’s for sure.

Turns out Lipstick Queen Medieval is anything but…..

This lippie is a very sheer, subtle kiss of red that’s ideal for Summer lovin’ lips. It’s a universally flattering shade of what I deem “Snow White” red. You remember the fairy tale that told us Snow White had blood red lips well I suspect Snow White was guilty of going Medieval. The shade is that of a bitten lip look for a very natural, fresh kiss of color. I’m in love.


With the market saturating itself with plenty of sheer lip treatments lately, ‘ello Dior, ‘ello Fresh, I must say that Medieval sets itself apart in a sea of red. The formula is a moisturizing blend with just the right touch of red pigment. It’s nothing overly dramatic, nothing crazy or bold. It’s simply natural, fresh, and rather ideal of you’re a minimal makeup kinda gal.

As for me, Lipstick Queen Medieval is simply gorgeous and my new Summer Must Have Make Up Item. I multitasked it in my below picture by applying a generous layer on my lips and proceeding to follow up with some on my cheeks. Yup, that’s right, I used it as a blush. The formula can easily be used as as a subtle lipstick or a cheeky little blusher for gently flushed skin. No making fun as I didn’t have time to slap on foundation or concealer this morning so I’m being really minimal today with my makeup eep!

    Hi, recently I went to Melbourne and it was the first time I saw this brand. I bought 3 lippies from the brand – Saint Pink, Jean Queen and Medieval and I simply adore all 3 of them :)
