I saw this lipstick on QVC and I couldn't stop watching- I had to have a sheer red that WORKS. I've been on the hunt for a sheer my-lips-but-better color to have in my purse at all times, and Medieval is my SAVIOR. It is smooth and creamy, and delivers just the right amount of color. If I could only own one lipstick (horrors!), this would be the one. One coat gives you a bit of …Read more

Great sheer red and is buildable too. I am afraid of red lipsticks since I am pale with dark hair. They tend to make me look too clowny or too vampire. This one is sheer and 1 coat looks like a natural but rosier lip or several coats can look more intense. It wears well and is moisturizing. Like the reviewer below, most reddish tints or stains tend to go pink or me or wear unevenly but this …Read more

Would I buy this again? Hell yes! This is exactly what I've been looking for in terms of color. I use it over Chanel Aqua Rouge Crayon in Rouge for perfect red lips. Unfortunately, it doesn't last as long as I'd like, but as it wears off, the stain left behind is beautiful - quite pleased overall. Now to find the sinner/saint version. (I can tell you right now, it isn't Red …Read more

I was excited to try this so I'm really disappointed that Medieval didn't work for me. It went kind of orangey and didn't look bitten or flushed at all. It seemed moisturizing but had a greasy feel I didn't like. I'm still giving it three lippies because it seems like a quality product that was just wrong for me. <br>

IMO, $25 (with shipping) is way too …

Alert! Alert! I am going to declare something my first ever HG lip product! This stuff is awesome! For reference I am a neutral leaning NC20 with dark brown hair.

Pros
Awesomely moisturising, doesn't dry lips out at all. I think this is the only lipstick I have used that isn't drying.
Gorgeous glossy finish.
The colour is awesome- it looks a frightening blood …

Generally I don't like wearing lipstick or gloss during the day so I was delighted to find a tinted lip moisturiser. Medieval is super-moisturising - perfect for these cold winter days when my lips dry out so easily - and tinted a gorgeous red. I have brown/black hair, green eyes and very fair skin and Medieval looks amazing on me. There's nowhere near as much pigment as in lipstick but …Read more

I don't know why so many people are saying this is just a coloured lipbalm! It is fairly sheer, but it has far more pigment than any lip balm I've ever seen and isn't really as moisturising as one.

Price and packaging: I bought this for £19.50 from SpaceNK (I live in England but the product is the same.) This is very expensive for a lipstick, but I truly think it's …

I honestly don't know how i lived without this. Before I bought Medieval I would either chapstick for moisturizing or lipstick for color, but there was never a middle ground. Sometimes I wanted more color than what chapstick offered, but didnt want the uncomfortable waxy feeling of wearing too much lipstick. When my best friend makeupjunkie90 dragged me too Henri Bendel and I tried the …Read more

Finally, a wonderful natural sheer red balm for very pale women. I'm NW15, and all these so called stains and sheers did nothing for me. Either they applied unevenly, made me look blotchy/ill, or dried down to a hot pink, or left a red/pink ring around the lipline when wearing off. I've tried Benetint in liquid and balm form, Nars, Laura Mercier, The Balm, Lorac, Vincent Longo - …Read more

Yes, it's a beautiful color and almost universal, or as near to it as anything I've encountered. Yes, the packaging is a delight. But...yes, it's a glorified $20 USD lip balm. And it feathers like crazy.


The product itself is quite soft, as lippies go, and it wears down quickly on application. It's not long-lasting on the lips, so that's repeated …
