How could I not write about this beauty product when it combines both lipstick and a history connection? I feel like I have been writing a lot lately about makeup–I suppose because it is almost fall and the change of seasons lead me to mix up my look. Lipstick Queen’s Medieval Lipstick fulfills a lot of the things that I like in my lip products. It is hydrating, sheer, and the packaging is pretty snazzy too. I never like feeling like I have layers of paste on my lips (but who does?) so the sheer part is important and since my lips are perpetually in a state of chapness, I need something that won’t just highlight that. The lipstick was inspired by women in medieval times who used lemon to stain their lips a light red, enough to make them look extra sensual but not enough for men to call them a harlot.
