Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

As a big fan of both Lipstick Queen and tinted lip balms, you can just imagine how happy I am to be using the Lipstick Queen Belle Époque Tinted Lip Balms! They are thick, rich, hydrating, long-wearing and non-sticky. They boast the perfect amount of cushion for comfortable wear, and the antioxidant-rich formula offers a light veil of color and a luminous shine that is very flattering on the lips.

According to Lipstick Queen,

Belle Époque is a range of three hydrating and tinted balms that bathe the lips in nourishment and comfort, whilst adding a hint of colour.

Rich, non-sticky and instantly soothing, these balms are fortified with an algae extract rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 as well as moisturizing Shea Butter and anti-oxidant Vitamin E.
With regular use, they improve moisture levels in the lips and minimize water loss thanks to Rice Lipids.

A subtle hint of flattering and wearable colour is the final Lipstick Queen touch for a beautifully natural lip look.

Overall Assessment: Love, love, love! I am a huge fan of sheer tinted lip balms, and this one is gorgeous, and it boasts a fantastic formula. That said, if you are seeking more intense pigmentation in a tinted lip balm, then you should be aware that these are quite sheer.

  1. From the pot I assumed they'd be so pigmented so I really love that they are sheer like this. Do they have a fragrance?

    1. They have no detectable scent or flavor, Marcia. Yes, the color in the pot would seem to indicate rich pigmentation, but in reality they really are quite sheer. I really love the formula!

  2. I think I would have liked a little more pigment, but these still sound pretty great.

    1. They are really great, but if you are seeking richer pigmentation these will not do the trick. You can, however, use them to top pigmented lipsticks!

  3. I believe I got one of these in either the Barneys event bag or the SpaceNK event bag recently but I haven't tried as yet. I should locate them and use this summer. Are they super-hydrating (for winter)?

    1. It's definitely worth finding yours! I find them quite hydrating, but I didn't use them on super chapped lips during the winter– so I don't know how they would stand up against lip balms that I have used during the cold months.

  4. These look like such good lip balms and I love the outer packaging, too. I like lip balms that give a hint of colour, they make me feel a little more pulled together, even when I'm slopping it in pj's and no makeup. lol

    1. They really are! They are perfect for daily wear, and they provide enough of a wash of color to add a little extra something to the lips! I love the consistency and finish too!
