Today I’m sharing with you two lipsticks from Lipstick Queen: Hello Sailor ($31 CAD / $25 USD) and Medieval ($30 CAD / $24 USD). This is my first introduction to the brand and I’m really excited to try them out! Let’s see how these lipsticks are…
The packaging is really nice and they each have a design that goes with the lipstick’s name.
The tubes match the colour of the lipsticks which I really like because you know right away which colour you’re grabbing for.
If you’re excited about the blue lipstick like I was, you may be a bit disappointed to know that it’s quite sheer. Both lipsticks are, but the blue one, Hello Sailor, is really sheer. Take a look at my arm swatches below.
That being said, I still like Hello Sailor. It adds a blueish tint to the lips that, mixed with my own colour, gives them a bit of a purple hue.
Turn the blackberry lip trend on its head with this ultra-modern, navy blue sheer lipstick… The sheer blue pigment is suspended in a protective Vitamin E treatment that can be worn alone as a nourishing lip tint… (source)
Medieval definitely shows up more on the lips.
During medieval times, when lipstick was considered a sin, women used the natural acidity of lemons to bring forth a natural blood-red stain on their lips… Medieval is purely Vitamin E and pigment, making it silky to wear and divinely transparent… (source)
I really like how they feel on my lips and they barely have a scent. You have to almost put them into your nose to smell something, and even then it’s really really light.
I reach for Hello Sailor on my no makeup days. I really like how it adds a nice sheen to my lips, and the hint of colour gives it a little je ne sais quoi. 🙂 And Medieval is perfect for low makeup days because it amps up my natural lip colour without looking like I’m wearing anything.
Would you wear these?
