Most Helpful Positive Review Best sheer lipstick formula ever
This is a holy grail lip product for me. For daytime I'm not really a full lipstick girl and it's been tough to find semi-sheer lippies with decent formulas. I have these in 6 colors and they all give incredibly smooth, even coverage, even when worn very lightly. This is key because most semi-sheer products don't cover my lighter areas well enough and I need to wear a lip liner to show the complete fullness of my lips. They have more pigment than most sheer lip products and are opaque with a couple swipes. NO WAXY TEXTURE! And no slipping around. They're not long lasting, but they do last much better than other sheer lipsticks. I've owned tons of expensive lipsticks and sheer lipsticks and nothing compares to how smooth these are. No lines no clumps no stickiness. They always feel amazing. And when my lips are lightly chapped, they don't draw attention to the rough spots. These are cremes with only the slightest sheen. Not really noticeable but keeps them from looking totally flat.
I have Bordeaux, Rouge, Deep Red, Natural, F*re Red, and Rust. I usually can't wear blue reds, but these seem to work for me, especially Rouge. It's a gorgeous color that should look great on everyone. (And FYI, it's actually redder, less pink, than Deep Red, but is the same degree of intensity. i.e. It's also deeper than the Red shade.)
The one thing I wish this line had was a better warm red. F*re Red is too coral colored. I know LQ is known for reds but I've yet to find a red that looks true red on me. I need a warm red for that and all her warm reds have a very coral hue. And her "true" reds are very pink on me.
Most Helpful Critical Review Love the colors but chapped my lips
I'm Asian with light medium cool toned skin, it's hard for me to find a lip stick that's not matte nude (although it's trending, I learned it's not my go to day wear) when you put it on even though it looks pinkish. Lipstick Queen's Saint - Pink and Pinky Nude are the perfect colors I was looking for! Beautiful, it enhances your makeup instead of taking over, great for day wear, night time too if you're going for something casual. I think they're great with smokey eyes makeup too since they give the perfect hint of happy pink but keeps it natural and not overpowering. Anyways, for me, the initial application was always nice and smooth, but after a couple of hours, even if I'm not eating, I'd have to reapply. By the 3rd application, I noticed that my lips would get dried up and a bit chapped. I would have to do a clean wipe off, then apply it to make it look nearly smooth as the initial app again. Maybe it's just me. I notice that during the day time, I tend to be in areas with colder temperature (can't help it) so perhaps that add to the drying and chapping. I also use Bare Mineral Gen Nude Radiant and love their XOX color; has been a better experience, not drying, longer wear. Bare Mineral colors are a bit more mute though.
Worth a shot if you adore the color. Hope it'll work out better for you than it did for me.

I was so disappointed in this lipstick ! I expected a balmy sheer nude peach instead it was more like a semi-opaque lipstick. Smells & tastes like plastic ! May try the Lipstick Queen nudes !
Nude should be arrested...
MBeth from ohio
...for being a big fat lie! There is nothing nude about it. It is a slightly sheer formula in that it has a clear base but it is far from lacking in pigment. I tapped this on my lips, barely any product, and my lips were bright pink. But not a good bright pink. It's an old timey brick-pink. Also not the nude I ordered! My mom won't even wear it and she still does her makeup like she did in the 80's.
My favorite ever !
Ck from AZ - Arizona
LOVE this shade, no taste, it feels amazing on..the only down side of this particular shade is it tends to warp and melt faster than the others in its tube. Not even exposed to heat but it breaks down quicker and I've had to throw the last bit just because it gets to messy. Ive gone through several of these tubes. Still worth it though !!
A lipstick dream come true!
Bootsie from Little Rock, AR
These lipsticks are perfect. I bought 4 shades (hey, it was national lipstick day!). Beautiful sheer colors. I can wear darker colors in this type of lipstick. Goes on smoothly, no sticky feel, no taste. The color gradually wears off without any caking. It will not last all day, because of its sheerness, but it does last through some eating and drinking. The colors are divine. I am so happy to have found these.
Love the color and texture!

Love the color and texture!
Absolutely would buy this again!
Gussie from Houston, Tx
This lipstick is very moist and the perfect shade for me!
Finally......I found my nude
Bren from Sherwood, AR
I finally found my NUDE color! I have naturally brown pigmented lips so finding a nude color is sooo hard. I use "Saint" everyday! It's a very natural color on my lips that doesn't make my lips more "brown". Perfect for work!
Natural is not Natural at all!!
De from Ca
This color is more like terracotta then a natural lip color. I am very very disappointed in purchasing this lipstick. I wish I had just purchased another Frog Prince lipstick and instead of trying something different. I have learned my lesson.
Best lipstick I've ever tried.
C from San Francisco, CA
This product is my go-to. It's replaced lip balm and all other lipsticks. (Other than my other lipstick queen colors)
I wear it daily and it looks great on everyone.
Plum Saint is amazing
CDF from lakeland
Plum Saint is absolutely gorgeous! The color goes on easily and it's super hydrating!
Not Even Close to Nude
CrammiNg Carolina from Concord, North Carolina
Lipstick Queen used to be known as Poppy. She had fabulous colors. I decided to try Lipstick Queen's "Any More Nude and You Would be Arrested." This is NOT nude. It turns bright pink. And it's not a pretty pink. It's ugly. I can't imagine it would look good on anyone. Try some other color.
Heather from West Des Moines
plum saint is exactly what I wanted! I have no bold lipsticks and this is just perfect. moisturizing, sheer and a beautiful true plum.
Best lipstick out there...
Citycat10 from Niagara Falls NY
Lipstick Queen is simply the best lipstick formula out there. Soft, lightweight, moisturizing and gorgeous, gorgeous color. I have several from the different lines of LQ. The Saint goes on sheer, with very subtle sheen, not as shiny as a gloss. Stays on a long time and is so moisturizing. I'm a lipstick junkie and have purchased pretty much all the high end brands and this is by far the best. Ulta, you need to feature this brand alot more than you do.
GFMc from PA
Love lipstick queen! This sheer lipstick is just that, very sheer, beautiful wash of color. I like filling lips in wLQ liner then apply this lipstick, lasts longer that way. Nice selection for me, at 65 yrs!
Just another lipstick
Sunshine from Spring Hill,Fl.
I didn't care for this lipstick.
M from Ca
Nice going on. A bit drying not as bad as the color changing ones that blistered my lips. Good staying power
KLewis715 from Madison, WI
I really just wanted something with a kiss of color, and this is more than that. The color was darker than I expected and I hardly wear it. I'd try something else from this brand... but this wasn't what I was hoping for.
Meli from Kansas
Lipstick is unpleasant. Felt stiff and dry. Took it off within 30 minutes of application/
Donna from Indianapolis
Great quality... every day use
Love!! Will definitely buy again!
KA from Louisiana
The lip liner and lipstick are a perfect pairing. Beautiful color and feels great on your lips!
Sticks to your lips
Angietz from Gilbert, AZ
This is a really great lipstick. I have only used 1 brand/1 color lipstick so I am glad I found this one to change things up.
J from Montana
I have not always succeeded by going with a color chose on line but TOTALLY pleased with this- perfect blue undertone classic mauve that wears wonderfully!!! & would definitely recommend getting the lip liner to match! =)
AZchic from Phx
My favorite lipstick brand—moisturizing & the right amount of color for me.
Great lipstick for everyday wear
Kaylala1104 from Colorado
I use this lipstick for everyday use. It's the perfect color to brighten up pale lips. It's easy to apply and lasts throughout the day. Only needing to reapply after eating. LOVE the color selection and the bright natural is best for everyday use since it's orety close to my lip color, just adds a brightening factor.
Pleasantly surprised with this lipstick. Pricey.
Sally from CA
Everyday use. Keep it in my pocket.
