I am not into very sheer, glossy lipsticks. When Medieval arrived in the mail, I was very excited, but then it was not at all buildable and it certainly is not a stain. You can apply layer after layer and blot and start again, and the color will never get deeper. I was very unhappy that I paid so much money for a barely tinted gloss when I expected something so much better. It looks beautiful in the tube but almost nothing on the lips. I haven't bought another Lipstick Queen product for myself. So many of the LQ shades are the same: beautiful in the tube, but almost nothing on the lips. Seriously, I want at least some color for my money. That said, I have found a use for it. I keep it in my purse, and when one of my pigmented or liquid lipsticks needs maintenance, a dab of Medieval can help redistribute and moisturize the pigment on my lips without changing the color. I'll probably use it up this way or as a chapstick alternative. I like the metal packaging though.

I love this lipstick formula. It's very heavily pigmented. People complain that it's dry, but they can always add a swipe of chapstick if they want. It lasts a long time, but if it starts needing maintenance, it's easy to reapply or to use a bit of chapstick to simply redistribute the pigment still on the lips, because there is still quite a lot of pigment to work with. My favorite thing to do is go over it with a Burt's Bees lipstick I have in Sunset Cruise that I keep in my purse. The Burt's Bees lipstick isn't my thing on its own because it's glossy and sheer, but it becomes one with matte pigmented lipsticks and liquid lipsticks that are slipping a bit after meals, etc. Sunset Cruise turns any shade into something really beautiful and warm that is unlike any color of lipstick I own and then it lasts the rest of the day. I have several of these Studded Kiss lipsticks and absolutely love and recommend them. You can always tone down the pigment with chapstick or some other balm to make them less dry or intense if that matters to you. You can't do the opposite with a lipstick that only has a small amount of pigment to it. I'd rather get a lot for my money, and with these lipsticks, I do. I have Bachelorette, Bauhau5, Lolita I, and Hexagram. They are all fantastic.
