Brand: Lipstick Queen
Range: Endless Summer Lipstick
Shades: Perfect Wave & Stoked
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Lipstick Queen’s Endless Summer Lipsticks come in sheer pops of surf-inspired shades that add a burst of colour to brighten your look for summer.
  • Packed with punchy pigment yet sheer in colour, they’re incredibly moisturising, leaving lips soft, glossy and feeling nourished thanks to natural oils, Vitamin E and Candelilla Wax for a smooth non-sticky texture.
  • I’m especially loving the vivid orange casing, a refreshing change from the signature Lipstick Queen packaging.
  • Available in 3 shades – Hang Ten (sheer nude), Perfect Wave (sheer pink), Stoked (sheer coral)
  • Verdict: After taking these out for a test drive on the weekend, I have decided that Perfect Wave is going to be “the summer lippie” for me this year.  It looks so fresh when paired with my typical weekend makeup of slick of eyeliner, mascara and a pop of blush.  I love that you don’t need a lip balm beforehand as it’s moisturising enough on its own leaving lips with a healthy moist sheen.  However as it doesn’t contain any SPF, I do recommend layering on a lightweight SPF lip balm such as Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 or Blistex 5 Way Lip Protection SPF 30 when wearing this lippie out in the sun. Two thumbs up!!

  • If I’m not mistaken, Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown Glossy Pencils were the first to launch lip crayons, before other brands followed suit years later (feel free to correct me on this!)
  • Unlike the newer contenders, these come with a jumbo sharpener.
  • The packaging and artwork is inspired by the Polanski film “Chinatown”
  • These moisturising lip crayons are effortless to apply & are a low maintenance way to add a pop of colour to your look.
  • Verdict: The shades in Lipstick Queen are classics & managed to withstand their individuality through the test of time with so many new contenders.  The only thing I dislike about it is the fact you need to sharpen it. I hope Lipstick Queen revamps the packaging into wind-up crayons to keep up with the rest.

RRP: $34.95 AUD

Brand: Lipstick Queen
Range: Jean Queen Lipstick & Gloss
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Poppy’s latest shade “Jean Queen” is a special pink that offsets the blue in the denim and lights up your face.
  • Available in lipstick & lipgloss, this shade supposedly suits all skin tones, ethnicities, ages and styles.
  • The lipstick is feather light and sheer, hydrating and looks like my own lips and is my favourite out of the two.
  • The lipgloss is a little more opaque, smoothes your lip texture and evens out your natural lip tone. Texture is semi-thick but not sticky and no strong taste/fragrance.
  • Verdict: The perfect everyday shade if you love the neutral but polished lip look.

The lipgloss is a squeezable tube with a brush so you can keep the bristles clean after use!
(Read: Peace of mind that there’s no transfer of miscellaneous particles back into the tube..)

Unlike Stila Lip Glazes that overflow suddenly after winding it up, Lipstick Queen’s squeeze tube is very easy to control so there’s no wastage.

I applied a thick coat for maximum effect, but a single coat still delivers the smooth results.


LQ describes it as pink, but to me it’s more a light rhubarb or deep rose shade.
See how pigmented it is!


Jean Queen Lipstick



The lipstick is much sheerer, hydrating with a semi-gloss finish.
I like how it looks like my own lips.
