Lipstick Queen makes my favorite lipsticks. I own four, and the brand has never steered me wrong.
Their lipsticks are also very unique. The brand is known for their color-changing lipsticks. That’s right, I said color changing lipsticks. Think Hyper-Color t-shirts. (Don’t know what that is? Ask someone born in the ’80s or Google.)
Their Hello Sailor lipstick looks blue in the tube, but turns your lips a sumptuous berry color. And their new Frog Prince lipstick turns your lips the perfect shade of pink. But how does it work?
You swipe on the sheer lipstick, and after a few moments, it reacts to the pH balance in your lips to turn them a shade of pink that is uniquely yours. InStyle tried it out on three members of their editorial staff, all with different complexions, to show the personalized hues.
So if you have trouble finding the perfect lipstick for you, try these Lipstick Queen personalized shades. They go on sheer, keep your lips moisturized, and aren’t sticky. I highly recommend them.
I love Lipstick Queen lipsticks but apparently purchasing directly from their website often leads to your credit card number being stolen. Several bloggers/YouTubers have written about the owner’s shady practices.
I choose to buy the lipsticks from Ulta, which is obviously still indirectly supporting the company, but I’m at less of a risk.
That’s insane. I’ll have to Google that.
Casey, are you possible referring to Lime Crime? I’ve never heard of Lipstick Queen having this issue but Lime Crime definitely has the reputation you describe (and went through a pretty big scandal recently because of it).
I googled, and I didn’t see anything. Went back to page 10 of the results.
You’ve confused this brand with Lime Crime.
Must be Lime Crime. Aptly named.
I gotta say, it looks like the exact same color on the InStyle ladies. Lovely, but definitely the same color.
I think that’s probably the point. The same color would look completely different on different people depending on skin and natural lip color, so this creates the intended shade no matter the starting point.
The differences are subtle, but it’s a lot “rosier” on me than it is on my friend E, who gets a brighter color. It’s kind of like having your hair color toned at the salon, if that makes sense.
