Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be pigmented, hydrating, long-wearing, and have a “wet-look” for finish. They’re fairly pigmented, wear long, feel somewhat hydrating, and have a glossy (or wet) finish. The consistency of the lipsticks is thin, and they don’t feel stiff when applied, but they almost need to “melt” a little to glide on really nicely. They are mint-scented but don’t have a noticeable minty tingle except for the first couple of minutes of wear.

Lipstick Queen Play It Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly–it appears almost like a stain with the translucency it has. The color wore well for five hours and felt hydrating. Bite Beauty Framboise (P, $24.00) is lighter, more matte. MAC Catharina (P, $23.00) is darker. Guerlain Very Pink (360) (P, $37.00) is similar. Too Faced Melted Candy (P, $21.00) is brighter. MAC Red Balloon (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Dominant (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Feeling Amorous? (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is sheerer. MAC Lickable (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lipstick Queen Have Paris Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm-toned, coral-red with a glossy sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, and again, this one almost looks a bit like a stain. The consistency was less creamy compared the other two shades I tried. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was slightly hydrating. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Trip (LE, $22.00) is more orange. Bite Beauty Grandifolia (LE, $28.00) is brighter, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lipstick Queen See Me Silver Screen Lipstick ($50.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lightened, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had opaque color coverage–surprisingly more pigmented than the other two!–and had a creamier, easier-to-apply texture. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating. MAC Style Approved (LE, $22.00) is darker, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (LE, $49.00) is pinker. Givenchy Mandarine Bolero (304) (P, $36.00) is darker, redder. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is darker. MAC Sushi Kiss (P, $16.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Agree! 50 bucks is a ridiculous amount and would only pay it, as I have, if the product feels and looks luxurious. And tjough these are cute, don’t seem as unique or luxe to me. And to top it, Christine is givimg them a B or so… So no…

Sunny Avatar

Hey Christine, while I like these shades on you, I think I’ll pass! I saw these in real life recently, and already I knew the packaging bothers me s little too much (I don’t think the base makes it easy to hold). If they can’t get an A from you at this price point, I don’t think I’ll end up liking them, either.

These remind me of that MAC play land or toy land whatever it was collection…the bright eye liners, lipsticks and whatever else earlier this year. Pretty but summery (so I say in 75+ degree weather). As I say often, that $50 price point is a tough hurdle for me…

Eliz Avatar

Christine, do you possibly have “Have Paris” and “Play It” reversed? I looked on Lipstick Queen’s website and the descriptions and swatches show “Play It” as the hot pink and “Have Paris” as the red. They all look great on you!

Jane Avatar

I drooled at Have Paris for a bit, then I realized that I already have three of the dupes. I’m probably good for blue-toned fuchsia pinks for a while…

These look very pretty, although pricey. See Me is surprisingly flattering; I thought it would have looked more chalky, I’m glad it didn’t! I would love to see more reviews on the Lipstick Queen brand.

Somehow, Guerlain manages to have a $54 and $36 range, but perhaps because Rouge G was their almost-only line for so long, that the introduction of more $35-ish ones was welcome vs. your normal price point being $24 and then doubling at $50 for a few lines.

I really like her regular lipsticks & still have a few from a while bk but when I see the new ones & then the price point.. I just don’t get that ooh I need that feeling, like alot of people get when they see a Tom Ford lipstick or how I feel about Givency lipstick & Guerlain products.

Benni Avatar

I love Lipstick Queen’s $24-$30-something lipsticks. I love Hello Sailor, Endless Summer line, and the new Ice Queen. But I’ve tried Velvet Rope and Silver Screen, and these just aren’t $50 lipsticks. I’d rather buy Guerlain Rouge G lipsticks at $50–lipsticks that actually feel worth the $50.

Veronica Avatar

I’m kind of surprised at the rating, given that the luxury matte line is excellent and worth the $50 price tag to me. With all the competition on the market, including her lower priced line, I don’t see this faring particularly well.

Clare Avatar

I’d be interested to see if you felt the Velvet Rope lippies were a better range than the Silver Screen ones, given they’re the same pricepoint but a different formula.

Jules Avatar

I like her regular lipsticks & have often recommended them, but these I don’t see it. I think if the colors were more unique & not so “I own it already” or “I don’t like that color on me”, I still wouldn’t pay $50…but I’d desire to. Lol

Whitney Avatar

For lipsticks that are $50, I expected the packaging to be a bit more luxurious because these just make me think of a semi-fancier adaptation of Maybelline’s. The colors of Play It and Have Paris are fetching but I’d just as sooner by Guerlain’s KissKiss lipsticks in Very Pink and Rouge Kiss before even paying either one of them mind for the packaging alone. The colors do look awesome on you though, Christine. It’s as though you can pull off any color. So jealous!

I’ve seen Lipstick Queen lipsticks in magazines but I’ve never seen them in a store before. As far as I’m concerned, this is a drugstore brand. Cute packaging, but not $50 worth of cute.
