Generous Gifts – Lipstick Queen Lipstick in „Saint Coral“

Finding some one that shares your passion for something makes life so much more enjoyable, don’t you think?

And while I am lucky to have a husband sharing my love for hiking and lots of other stuff, for some very strange reason he just isn’t as much into makeup as I am.
Me going on and on about skin tones, lipstick finishes and eyeshadow fallout isn’t his idea of a fun conversation, so I started this blog (among other reasons) to connect with likeminded people, as they are rare among my friends.

Lipstick Queen Lipstick in „Saint Coral“

Rare, but not non-existent.
My gorgeous friend Pia is as crazy as I am about all things makeup, and we can spend hours discussing new releases or browsing the aisles of the local drugstore.
She also is quite different complexionwise, having dark hair and fair, cool-toned skin (think Snow-white, she really is very pretty!)

And when she ends up with something that just doesn’t work with her skin tone, I am the lucky profiteer.
This is how I got my hands on my first ever Lipstick Queen product.


What Lipstick Queen claims:
Each easy to wear shade contains 10% pigment, giving just a hint of long-lasting color. Build the shade for a more dramatic yet casual approach to glamour.
Moisturizing and long-lasting sheer color. Fragrance and shimmer free.

Facts:
Sadly, Lipstick Queen isn’t available in store in Germany.
All lipsticks Queen lipsticks come in different colored, sleek tubes. The Saint Lipstick packaging is of a golden color with purple writing.
Inside are 3.5 g (0,12 Oz) and it retails for 21 € on Amazon.

As claimed by Lipstick Queen there is no scent and no shimmer.

Despite containing Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil, the formula isn’t very moisturizing on my lips. It isn’t drying either, it just leaves my lips the way they were before applying.
Even though the color is marketed as sheer, it shows up well enough on my lips and can be build up when using several swipes.

Weartime on me is average. If I only drink, I can still see the color after 2-3 hours, but I have to reapply after eating. But considering this is a sheer color, I wouldn’t have expected anything else.

All lipsticks are available in a corresponding „Sinner“ formula, containing 90% pigment, thus providing opaque coverage and longer weartime.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes.
It isn’t as moisturizing as I would have hoped, but that may be due to my moisture zapping work environment more than due to the lipstick itself.

Will I rebuy?
Yes.
I like the formula and think it is well worth the price.
And I love the color. It has quickly become a staple in my handbag.

Who do I recommend it to?
Anyone willing to spend that amount of money on a lipstick.
You will find your preferred coverage either in the „Saint“ or in the „Sinner“ range, the formula is easy to wear and the ingredient list full of goodness, so I think the price is justified.

Have you ever tried Lipstick Queen?
And are you a Saint or a Sinner?

    I really like this awesome color of this lipstick.

  • Beautiful color! I definitely don't mind investing in a lipstick since, let's be honest, the more expensive brands are better quality for sure, well the ones I've tried before

  • I've not tried a Lipstick Queen lipstick yet. I have been tempted a few times, but never actually bought anything.
    Rubi | Instagram | The Den | http://www.the-den.blogspot.com

  • Sounds and looks like a winner!

  • It does look soft and smooth on the lips! Gorgeous colour xx

    Erin | Erin and Katherine Talk Beauty

  • That looks like a stunning color!

  • I really like this color, since it's sheerer it's exactly a coral shade I like. I haven't tried any Lipstick Queen lipsticks yet though even though they are easily available here.

    And what a nice friend. None of my friends are that much into makeup. Sure they will go shopping with me and ask for my advice but nobody ever understands why I need a 100th lipstick or another blush! But that's why I am friends with you 🙂

    Agata http://herandmakeup.com

  • I heard about them a lot, but never cared, as they are not available here. Now that I finally got to try one, I am convinced.

    She is the only friend I have as crazy about makeup as I am, and I just love to talk beauty to her for hours. Sadly, we don't get to go shopping very often, as we live in different towns.
    I would really, really love to go makeup shopping with you one day!

  • I guess the word is "adjustable". I wouldn't say I am a complete Saint either, but that may be a topic for a different blogpost.

  • It really is, a very pretty coral with a lovely sheen.
    Do you like corals?

  • It is, the texture is very comfortable to wear, non-sticky and very smooth.

  • And it was free. Triple win!

  • There are just so many great brands out there, I sometimes feel overwhelmed and stick with what I already know instead of trying new things.
    But as proven above, if you don't try new things, you probably miss out on great stuff!

  • I love my Revlon ones and I know Maybelline do some great options, too, but most of the times I agree. MAC is my most owned lipstick brand, as I know they will always deliver.
    What is your favorite brand?

  • Thank you. What is your favorite color to wear?

  • It is so pretty! Do you wear a lot of coral?

  • I haven't tried a Lipstick Queen lipstick yet, but I'd probably be a Sinner, lol!
    None of my real-life friends are into lipstick, so my blog and online interactions are my only opportunity to share my passion. My husband is getting more and more knowledgeable about makeup though, the other day he was asking me if I was wearing a lip stain because my lip color survived a meal!

  • I love corals! But I haven't found the perfect coral for me yet.

  • Kate

    I've never heard of this brand but this is such a pretty lipstick shade. I love the sheen on it too. X

    Kate Louise Blogs

  • Then good luck searching. My hunt for the perfect Pink isn't over yet, too. So many options…

  • Oh wow, I'm surprise how different the shade is on your lips. It looks orangey, coral in the tube but on your lips, it's a very pretty red. You're so lucky to get this, it's great to have friends who are beauty obsessed too! I have yet to purchase anything from Lipstick Queen, the price is quite steep for me. :-/

  • Maireem Maneje

    Lovely color and review 🙂 I'd like to think a both a Saint and a Sinner. Maybe more of a Sinner most times….

    http://www.maireem.blogspot.com

  • Hi! Thanks for the review. I love the colour because it's coral but not "too coral"-orangey!

  • Normally it's nude or neutral shades but every once in a while I'll use a gorgeous coral shade 🙂 xo

  • Анна-Алина Гевелюк

    Aw, I don't think so. I almost always wear transparent lip gloss and many people ask me what color I'm wearing, as I have pretty bright color of my lips, I think it looks like this because my skin is very white.
    But this lipstick looks so gooood. ♥

  • OOO this is such a stunning shade that I'm sure I'll love! So here is a more pressing question: WHERE ARE ALL THE MAKEUP-LOVING GIRLS IN REAL LIFE? LOL I also started my blog partially because this is an interest I don't share with the majority of my friends, but maybe they just don't go as far?!

  • The Beauty Highlights

    That is such a beautiful shade.

  • such a stunner shade

  • Beautiful shade! It looks totally different on you than I would have expected from the bullet. Lovely though!

  • This shade is so pretty, so sad that it's not available in Germany 🙁

    Ich danke Dir auch für diesen Test, ich glaub, das ist der Lippenstift, den ich mir als nächstes kaufe! Und der Grund, warum Du Deinen Blog angefangen hast, der kommt mir sehr bekannt vor, auch wenn es bei mir nicht um Make-Up geht 🙂 Schönes, verlängertes Wochenende!

  • Lovely color! I am not a make up girl so I don't know if I would purchase it! Looks great on you!

  • You sound very endearing and funny in yours posts 🙂

    Saint Coral looks absolutely lovely! x

  • I've heard of these but never tried any from the range. I guess I'm really boring with lipstick and would always pick up MAC over any other brand first. Maybe I need to experiment more 🙂
    Becca | theBeautyInbox

  • Yes, my lips are pretty pigmented as well, so I can get away with wearing balm and still looking dolled up.

  • I havent gotten into really nude shades, I look like dead when I do.

  • Wow, that is quite an expert question coming from a man! I am impressed.

  • I like the glossiness, too. Matte lipsticks feel like winter to me.

  • I am very pleased I got to try it.

  • I guess they are all locked up in their bedrooms, writing blog posts?

    Most women I know like makeup and own up to three lipsticks and maybe two foundations, so I guess it is the obsession that sets us apart.

  • Yes, it is a different coral from my other corals, and I love it.

  • I guess most of us have it both. Life would be quite boring if we just were one thing, don't you think?

  • Thank you. Do you wear a lot of corals?

  • It definitely is one of the pricier lipsticks, but I find the quality of drugstore products to be disappointing sometimes.

  • They are pricey, but in TKMaxx there is always a great discount and brands that aren't readily available in your country, so it is a win-win.
    Too bad I don't have one where I live, so I have to wait until I get the chance to go shopping at my parents place.

  • Are you a coral lover?

  • Yes, I would have thought it´d be different, too, but I like how it turned out.

  • I want more!
    But where on earth do I put them? So many lipsticks, so little space…

  • Yes, I have the feeling we always miss out on the good stuff.

  • Thank you for sharing this giveaway and for stopping by.

  • Und ich dachte in Deinem Job hätte man zumindest gleichgesinnte Kollegen?
    Gut, dass wir in Zeiten des Internets leben, was hätte ich sonst nur getan?

  • Each to their own. I buy all the makeup, you buy all the clothes.

  • Oh thank you. I have to turn to the WWW to hear someone call me endearing and funny 😉

  • I used to be MAC only, too, but then I branched out and have had no regrets. Although MAC still holds a special place in my heart.

  • I love moisturising lipsticks as my lips get dry so quickly! Great review and thanks for sharing 🙂

    Pop over to my blog 🙂

  • Have you ever tried anything of Lipstick Queen before? And what is your secret best moisturizing lipstick?

  • Dressed With Soul

    Gleichgesinnt, was Einkaufsthemen und auch viele sonstige anbelangt, aber das Thema Mode versuche ich unter Kollegen zu vermeiden 🙂 Von dem her bin ich echt froh, in den Zeiten des Internets zu leben!

  • Jaa

    "I guess they are all locked up in their bedrooms, writing blog posts?"

    HAHAHAHAHAHAAH PERFECT ANSWER! LOLOL!

    It's true, though. None of my friends is really "into" makeup as much as I am. You're lucky to have Pia as your friend! 🙂

    I have tried chubby lip pencils from the brand. They are sheer and lightly tinted which I like for minimal makeup days. 😀 Saint Coral definitely doesn't look sheer on you at all!

  • I am so thankful for having her, but I am even more thankful to live in times of internet, so I could get into contact with all these lovely bloggers from around the world.

  • Ich verstehe.

  • I haven't tried anything from Lipstick Queen but they are definitely on my list to try 🙂 I do like the sound of this one for Summer. It is so nice to have someone who shares your love of makeup and who you can go makeup shopping with 🙂 xx

  • Oh this is so juicy on you! Does that color darken once you apply it? The bullet seems a bit lighter to me! 🙂

  • Haha, lol! x

  • We have Lipstick Queen in the UK but I have not tried it yet. This coral shade your friend gave you looks lovely. x

    Renata | Speaking Beauty UK

  • Lovely shade by a lovely friend. She just knows my taste too well.

  • It looks darker on my lips than in the bullet, but straight when applied, no darkening over time. I guess it is my natural lip color showing through.

  • If only I´d see her more often.
