4 stars out of 5

Lipstick Queen Medieval Tinted Lip ‘Lixir ($20) is a new liquid lip color or lipgloss varation of a old favorite shade from LQ. Who doesn’t own Medieval Lipstick from Lipstick Queen at this point? It’s their universally flattering sheer blood red color that everyone adores. It might be the shade that got you into the brand or even your first purchase from them since it’s so well known in the niche makeup community.

I’m pretty happy to see not one but two different formulations of it for Spring 2019. ‘Lixir is just one version but there’s also a new intense lipstick shade as well!

If you’ve been waiting for some sort of lipgloss shade in Medieval you might just enjoy the new Lipstick Queen Medieval Tinted Lip ‘Lixir.

Let’s take a look at my thoughts and review.

Lipstick Queen Medieval Tinted Lip ‘Lixir arrives in a rather regal tube with a aubergine shaded top. It’s 0.09 oz in size so a little smallish for a lip color/gloss at $20. None the less, still a welcome and refreshing change from the solid formula.

I hesitate to color this a lipgloss as it almost feels like they melted down Medieval Lipstick and turned it into a liquid form. This is a balmy texture that applies a little patchy at first but as you go over the color a few times with the sponge applicator it smooths out to an even finish. Application is a little tricky as the formula seems to slip and slide around a lot and getting it even can be a little pain. You do need to built it up a few times and that will result in the smoothest most even finish. I actually liked the texture a lot since I have drier lips as this has a nice moisturizing feel and it remains quite hydrating through the wear at around three hours. It also has a nice glossiness to it! The color is sheer at first layer but around layer three it intensifies and becomes blood red in color the same as its solid version. It has no flavor nor any fragrance.

It’s pretty cool to have a liquid version of Medieval as it’s a shade I reach for quite often! The application of this version isn’t without a minor fault but you can work around it. If you’re a fan of the solid version I’m pretty sure you’ll like the liquid one!

Where to buy

Ulta

Lipstick Queen Medieval Tinted Lip ‘Lixir is a new liquid version of the brand’s popular blood red shade lipstick, Medieval. This lip color is 0.09 oz in size and $20. It contains no fragrance nor flavor and has a balmy consistency that almost feels like they melted down and liquefied a Medieval Lipstick. The finish has a nice bit of glossiness but application is tricky as it sort of slips and slides around my lips and has a patchy look. If I stroke the application over my lips a few times I get the smoothest most even coverage and also, the best color pay off. Color wears for around three hours without migration or feathering!

Pros

  • Gorgeous blood red shade!
  • Hydrating.

Cons

  • Expensive for the size.
  • Faulty application during initial application.

Who

Lipstick Queen Medieval Tinted Lip ‘Lixir is an ideal pick for anyone who loves the lipstick version! It has some application issues but once applies looks gorgeous!

    Hey, let’s get priorities straight. Medieval Intense? Hell, ya. Maybe both. Ultabucks are burning a hole in my mind. It’s far more blue on me; never would call it a blood red. It’s so sheer that your lip color has a major influence, which is probably why most people can wear it. Good tip. Thanks.

      haha ;-D I hear ya! True! Lipstick is more sheerer blue red but this def a blood red imho!

    Looks pretty, but it annoys me that they left the “E” off of Elixir. Why do brands do that??
