I know I show a lot of red lipstick here at Pretty Panda, but it is something I wear everyday. Although I love the bright, bold reds, I know some people are shier when it comes to this tricky shade. I found the perfect my lips but better red shade that wears like a balm and will make you feel like a medieval beauty.
If you like sheer reds, or just really want to be the star of you own medieval story where you overcome all odds to be with that prince or princess, or maybe just slay dragons, whatever you like…wear Lipstick Queen Medieval while doing so!
This shade was based off of the idea that since lipstick in the medieval period was a sin, women sucked on lemons to bring out their natural lip color. This does that for you, but without the pain. Only Vitamin E and pigment, Medieval wears on the lips like a second skin. The packaging is gorgeous, and it can transport you back in time (even if only in your head).
There are a lot of products out there that can give you this color…and many of them are much cheaper. At $22, this is pricey, but the formula is easy to wear. This certainly isn’t the only red MLBB sheer tint around, but it is a fun one.
The lipstick itself looks much more vibrant, but it has this almost jelly-like quality that smooths out lip lines and makes you look like you aren’t even trying. Natural beauty is the best anyway!
If you know me at all, you know this is very low on the pigment scale for me. Above is one swipe on my lips, but it creates this slightly glossy, almost juicy finish that I am in love with.
I’m taking a break from my high power pigments to look like a medieval princess for a while. Will you?
