Jungle Queen Lipstick

I admit I had this weird moment of Jungle Boogie playing in my ear when I applied the new Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen Lipstick! You just might want to boogie down with Jungle Queen this Summer as she’s the perfect on trend orange for warm, Summer-y looks.

And to think I thought she was going to be coral!

Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen

Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen Lipstick was developed to be paired with animal prints. How weird is that? Poppy King, creator of Lipstick Queen products, was inspired by fierce animal prints when she created the Jungle Queen shade. She actually calls it a coral pop and a juicy papaya shade. Personally it’s a full on orange for me…but strangely enough I tested it on my friend Jai and it comes across as a lighter papaya on him. Apparently the shade is suitable for all complexions so obviously the color has a little switcharoo when applying it on different skin tones. On me it was a juicy orange with hints of redness! There wasn’t a lot of warmth to the color for me but it was more a cooler on trend sizzling Summer orange.

Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen Lipstick Swatches

They call it a semi-sheer formula but I find it applies opaque where as the formula feels more like a sheerer lipstick. Like it’s cousins, Jean Queen, it has a buttery, soft glide across lips with a little slickness and full opaque color on the first application. It has a hint of shine and incredible wear of around five hours without migrating, fading, or feathering.

Poppy always amazes me with her formula as they wear so lightweight and comfortable yet they pack such incredible pigmentation.

If you’re a fond fan of the orange lipstick trend for Summer I’m sure that Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen Lipstick will be an instant pick up for you!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m so happy to see this reviewed! I love the color but wish it came in both this and something closer to the saint formula – for summer I like something sheer enough that I can just slap it on without a mirror. Still, it’s freakin fierce!

    • Isabella Muse

      you can sheer it out easily saffron if you wanted it ๐Ÿ˜€

    I always hated orange lipsticks on me and for some reason this year I’ve become absolutely obsessed with them! This looks like it’d be a lovely addition to my collection ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    • Isabella Muse

      i had that issue with nudes, I hated them now I’m all about them ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Majick


    This is SO freakin’ pretty I can’t wait to try it myself. ROck that orange MUSE!

  • Jade

    I was just thinking to myself today that I LOVE the formula of Jean Queen but I wish it were warmer-toned… HELLO LIPPIE!!

  • Amber

    I love orange and coral lipsticks and I have to agree that Lipstick Queen has superior formulas. Jungle Queen looks a lot like one of her others I own -Saint Fire Red. Wish I could see a side by side. I’m torn! I’ve been eyeballing Let Them Eat Cake too!

    • Isabella Muse

      oh wish I had Saint Fire Red I’d have swatched for you side by side! Let them Eat Cake looks delightful ๐Ÿ˜€
