Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque 1

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque ($20) is a new tinted lip balm available in three shades that adds a flush of color to lips along with a hydrating rich formula that contains shea butter and vitamin E to keep dry lips happy!

A few days ago I was discussing Vanity Worthy Makeup with beautiful packaging and Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque fits right in! This is such a pretty little luxurious lip balm that will look lovely atop your vanity. The little pot has a certain Victorian feel and the delicious little formula will keep your lips happy and lovely looking!

Take a peek!

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque was formulated with omega 3, 6, and 9 as well as vitamin E, shea butter, and rice lipids which minimize water loss and moisture levels so lips are improved with daily use and feel softer, smoother, and more nourished!

Housed in a tiny frosted jar with a rose gold top each balm contains 0.28 oz of product and is available in three shades of Belle Wine, Belle Nude, and Belle Pink.

This is a sheerer lip balm but the color I tried, Belle Wine, provided a good deal of color, a nice hint of shine, and lovely lightweight moisture that wasn’t sticky or tacky. The balm had no fragrance or flavor which is a plus if you’re sensitive. I like the texture as it feels barely there yet still provides such a nice bite of color to my lips. I wouldn’t say it was super hydrating at first application but my lips weren’t complaining through the wear and they felt nicely moist and softened. The wear time was very nice as well since this lent a nice burst of color to my lips for about four hours before fading.

I always crave a natural lip look. I like products that give me a my lips but better appearance and finish and that’s exactly the look I got from Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque!

Pretty packaging, lovely lightweight moisture, and a hint of lovely color made this a very nice little lip balm!

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.

    The box and pot is very pretty but I don’t like dipping my fingers into pots, prefer a tube

  • Margo

    OOH I love the packaging and how natural it looks on you. Also, I’ve been a longtime reader and don’t always comment, but thanks for all you do and keep us updated on in the beauty world. You rock!

  • Natalie

    Really pretty color. It does remind me of a color artists would us to paint women’s lips in portraits during the art nouveau period in the Belle Epoque era. I also don’t like pots otherwise I would have to get this.

  • Jessica

    I love the name Belle Epoque! Just the name alone makes me want to try this product! πŸ˜‰ I also love a MLBB look. I may have to pick this up!

    ooooh, that IS pretty! both the packaging and the color, and if the color sticks around for 4 hours, i’d be willing to give this a shot. i like lipstick queen and usually avoid blams b/c they only last about 4 nanoseconds on me, but if this color stays, i’m going to go check it out!

    Love it! Reminds me of the old Poppy lip gloss pot in a similar color (I forget the name). I loved gloss in pots and I wish it would make a comeback. P.S. No hygiene issues if you wash your hands or use a brush – back in the day, if you had a nice lip brush, you were considered tres chic in my circles!

    Holy moly! After years of pining for my beloved discontinued Benefit Benetint potted lip balm, you may have found its reincarnation! Now if only I could get my wallet to yield itself to me… *Rushes to find a wizard’s hat to do my version of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” with my dollar bills.*
