This is expensive, but worth it. I love the color; it's not nude, but sheer with a beige tint. There is no smell or taste which is great! Not drying and stays true a long time. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a natural, easy to wear lippie!

Pros: sheer but can build up color, go on smoothly, not fake-looking
Cons: not inexpensive
I felt in the mood to splurge a bit on myself.
I love the lipsticks -- smooth and sheer -- easy to layer color -- great with or without lip-liner.

Love this. This is a very unique lipstick. It's not a nude (at least on my pale skin, on those with darker skin it might be) It has a look that's both retro and natural. It's a natural rosey brownish color that is somehow far more interesting than other lipsticks in that color family. I love the finish, it's very pigmented, yet still allows the natural texture of my lips to show through. It defines my lips, but it doesn't make them the focal point of my face. It's interesting enough to wear with no other makeup, but I can wear it with a smokey eye.

This is a very comfortable lipstick. No taste or scent (well, I guess it still smells like lipstick--it smells the same as the lipstick my mom used to use when I was little)--none added, anyway. I do have a small gripe with the packaging: the stick inside the tube I got is very slightly tilted--it hasn't started rubbing against the sides though--and that could just be a one-off defect. The other minor complaint I have with the packaging is that when you twist, you meet some resistance/friction, so that the it doesn't twist up and down as smoothly or easily as I'd like. I don't expect the luxury look and feel of Chanel or anything, but since this is more expensive than drugstore, I'd expect the packaging to be AT LEAST as good as the drugstore ones.
The color is very nice, and is easy to layer. It will never be opaque (and it isn't supposed to be), but you can change the look a bit with more layers. The first swipe gives a very nude (tan/skin colored) beige, which on me shows up as mostly a soft gloss (not high, mirror-gloss), but on a second swipe it's a bit more rosy-brown for a MLBB look. I like it a lot, but I don't think I'd buy it again.

Meh. It's too brown for my liking, and it doesn't really do anything for me. Some days it looks OK, some days it makes me look like death warmed over. I haven't been using it much at all. I just bought something I like much better, Boots No. 7 in Poppy King's "Allure." Sheerer, lighter and warmer.

Saint Nude is a beautiful brownish pink MLBB shade that I ifnd myself reaching for quite a bit. The lipstick is almost like a balm but the color goes on fairly pigmented but not as heavy as the Sinner line. I just wish it had a little more staying pwer.

If I had to choose just one lipstick to wear for the rest of my life, this would be it. The color is a beautiful warm "my lips but better" shade that is sheer, but still has a beautiful depth of color (if that makes sense). Saint Nude is something like NARS Dolce Vita, which some people claim is the universally flattering shade. While I find Dolce Vita to be a sheer rose that is neutral leaning toward cool, Saint Nude is a sheer neutral leaning toward warm. The packaging is a beautiful gold-toned tube, and when you put on the top it makes a satisfying little "click" so you know it's staying on. Lipstick Queen products aren't cheap or easy to come by, but this gem is worth the hunt and the price tag.

This is a great lipstick, which is extremely wearable for just about anyone.
Like all the Saint colors from Lipstick Queen, this comes in a small gold colored round brushed metal tube, with the Lipstick Queen logo in dark purple printed on the cap. When you lift the cap, you will see the By Poppy logo printed on the tube containing the lipstick. The packaging feels high quality, and is very attractive. Though some brands have larger lipsticks, these aren't tiny or disappointing in their size or anything like that.
The colors is a great nude, a "My Lips But Better" shade that will flatter just about anyone. It is a muted medium light pinky brown color with a hint of orange to it. It's near neutral, but a little on the warm side. My skin is almost neutral, but leaning towards cool, and I am very fair, about a MAC NW/C 15. This doesn't look overly warm on me, it's not like I'm wearing a coral or a peach, it's really a MLBB shade.
Despite this being Lipstick Queen's lighter lipstick formulation (the Sinner Lipsticks are the high pigment ones) I still consider this lipstick to have a medium level of pigment. It's more pigmented than Lipstick Queen's Medieval Lipstick, and more pigmented than tinted balms, or other light coverage lipsticks that have become popular lately. It's not 100% opaque on your lips, but the color definitely shows up.
The finish is neither matte nor glossy, I would call it a satin finish, and it looks very natural on the lips. The lipstick doesn't feel sticky, nor does it feel dry. It basically feels like a balm on the lips.
I was surprised by how moisturizing this lipstick is. I thought it would be less moisturizing than the Medieval Lipstick, but I actually find it just as moisturizing. I do not feel the need to wear a balm or anything to stop this from drying my lips, which is great because my lips start to feel dry very easily. The moisturizing feeling lasts as long as the lipstick does, which for me is about 3 or 4 hours (that's longer than Medieval which lasts more like 2 or 3 hours on me).
This is very comfortable on the lips, which is a big factor in why I keep reaching for it - it's so easy to wear! It looks great with everything, and feels great on the lips.

I'd read about Lipstick Queen for some time, and wanted to try the saint line. They became available on a sample sale site and I jumped at the chance. I purchased Saint Nude, Saint Berry and Saint Rouge all at the same time. LOVE! I have been a lipgloss person for years, because I like a sheer wash of color. The staying power of lipgloss is terrible, IMO. Lipstick Queen Saints are like lipgloss without the shine but with longevity!! Definitely worth trying. Love nude--MLBB. The other two colors are equally lovely and useful. Because they are sheer, they aren't so "risky" to try. The formula is moisturizing and nice, and the brushed gold cases are classy. Very nice.

The texture of this lipstick is amazing! It glides on so easily and stays put! It's not super sheer on my lips, but not totally opaque either, it's like a satin finish. The color is perhaps a little orangey, but not in a bad way. It's a nice, natural brick color. I'm going to try Saint Natural next, which I think is a bit less orange. I love this lipstick, so glad I found it!! Would repurchase in a heartbeat!

Think of the Lipstick Queen Saint line as gel blushes for the lips -- sheer, see-through color that doesn't obliterate the color and texture of the lips underneath. What makes them HGs for me is that the color lasts a long time, far longer than glossier alternatives, and wears evenly without sinking into liplines and gunking up. The finish is neither matte nor glossy, but more the natural texture of lips. On me, Saint Nude is MLBB, a natural tone that is the color my lips should be (rather than the uneven pink-brown that they are). It's a warm browned-down peachy tan with some pink still in it. It is browner than Saint Natural and more muted than Saint Rust, the other two Saints I own. Its closest match in my collection is Sue Devitt Zimbabwe, though Saint Nude is a bit deeper in color and sheerer in texture -- it's more natural-looking. For reference, I'm very pale (NC/N10-15 or so), warm-toned and muted, with moderately pigmented lips.
