My first Lipstick Queen purchase is, well, not really a lipstick. It's more of a tinted balm.
I've always been into that look women in medieval shows have, they always had natural-looking red lips and just some hint of color on their lids and cheeks.
Packaging is on point, at least, according to my aesthetics. I love the feel of the tube, sleek with good weight on it.
From the bullet it looks pretty intense, but here it is swatched below:
The reason I got this, instead of the numerous (and stunning) colors available from Lipstick Queen, is because I needed a simple, fuss-free "mom" lip product. I needed something that wouldn't necessarily stain my baby's face (because to be honest, I can't resist not kissing him all the time hehe) but something that has an appropriate amount of tint, something that wears out evenly, and something moisturizing. I JUST WANTED AND NEEDED SOMETHING EASY. This doesn't last on your lips a great deal, as with most sheer lip balms and lip butters, but the beauty in this is in the ease of reapplication--that is, there isn't much need for a mirror to do so. (Note to self: I could've gotten one of those Fresh lip balms, too. But Lipstick Queen presented itself unto me.)
Despite Poppy King's declaration that this is a "red anyone can wear", I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to everyone. I would, however, recommend this to anyone who is looking for something easy to wear, or those not quite ready for vivid reds on their lips just yet. This is an easygoing red; one that you don't need to worry about.
