Recent releases:

Reign & Shine Lip Glosses ($20):


Bestow your lips in crown-worthy color with Lipstick Queen's regally-glamorous Reign & Shine Lip Gloss. Featuring 6 ultimate shades, each providing a beautiful, non-sticky, buildable sheer hint of color coupled with ravishing crushed golden pearls that give your lips lustrous, brilliant shine.

With an enriched, super-hydrating formula, lips become nourished and conditioned, while sodium hyaluronate plumps and defines for the illusion of a fuller pout, securing the throne as true lip gloss royalty.

The applicator becomes your royal scepter as you glide on gorgeous, golden-laden, shimmering color, with a comfortable, non-sticky finish that's fit for a Queen!

Baroness of Bare (sheer, nude w/ neutral undertones)
Empress of Apricot (sheer pop of peach w/ warm undertones)
Ruler of Rose (sheer, petal pink w/ warm undertones)
Mistress of Mauve (soft, subdued mauve w/ neutral undertones)
Countess of Cocoa (sheer, neutral chocolate brown)
Monarch of Merlot (sheer, buildable berry w/ blue undertones)

Blue By You ($25):


Emanating the free-spirited glamour of the 70โ€™s, Lipstick Queenโ€™s Blue By You Lipstick is a playful tribute to the lavish glitz of the decade, with a modern twist. Evolving the iconic transformer collection, luxe Blue By You is a soulful indigo blue that transforms into a metallic raspberry pink.

Enriched with Shea Butter, Mango Butter and antioxidant Vitamin E, lips are left soft and hydrated, while the sheer, shimmering finish provides easy-to-wear, comfortable, long-lasting color. Reminiscent and iridescent, Blue By You encourages us all to get out in the center of the dance floor, and strut our stuff.

Starting as a bold, soulful blue, the color transforms into a flattering, metallic raspberry pink that perfectly captures the medley of glistening magic within a disco ball, transforming you into a dancing queen in one swipe.

Saint and Sinner Plum ($24):


Both lipsticks are described as a "Glamorous Blackberry Hue."

Saint formula details:
Designed for when you just want a tint of super flattering color. Each easy to wear shade contains 10% pigment, giving just a hint of long-lasting color. Build the shade for a more dramatic yet casual approach to glamour.

Sinner formula details:
Poppy designed Sinners to be the ultimate full-coverage matte lipsticks with 90% pigment.
The Sinner formula takes creaminess to a whole new level. The formulation glides on, lasts beautifully and feels great on the lips. Each shade has been meticulously designed to be the ultimate in its category - lighting up your face and your mood!

Dating Game Lipstick ($24):


What it is: A lipstick available in flirtatious shades that are vying to win your heart.

What it does: Lipstick Queen invites you to take a chance and play the dating game. Choose between full-coverage, creamy, pink suitors all with a rich, silky and polished finished. Nourishing shea butter and vitamin E combine for beautifully conditioned lips.

Mr. Right Now โ€“ a high-impact pink with cool blue undertones
Mr. Right โ€“ an upbeat, vibrant, bright rosy pink with a hint of cherry coral
Good Catch โ€“ a soft pink with warm undertones and a rosy blush finish
Bad Boy โ€“ a shocking pink with cool berry undertones

Morphe Parent Buys Lipstick Queen

Lipstick Queen is the latest line to join the Morphe family under new parent company Forma Brands.



The parent company of Morphe has acquired Lipstick Queen, WWD has confirmed. 

Lipstick Queen, founded by Poppy King in 2006, makes a range of $25 lipsticks that are sold at Space NK, Ulta Beauty and Mecca in Australia. The business was previously part of Manzanita-owned Space Brands and is well-known for its Frog Prince shade โ€” the lipstick looks green, but turns lips pink. Industry sources said the plan going forward includes global expansion. 

Lipstick Queen is the latest line to join the Morphe family under new parent company Forma Brands. Earlier this year the business acquired Playa, a high-end hair line sold at Sephora. 

Forma will look to continue making acquisitions, incubate its own brands, and help run back-end operations for other brands, including influencer Jaclyn Hillโ€™s Jaclyn Cosmetics. 

Incubated brands include Morphe 2, a subbrand aimed at Gen Z and fronted by TikTok stars Charli and Dixie Dโ€™Amelio, as well as Such Good Everything, a supplement line that aims to capitalize on the formulation and format interests โ€” vegan and gummies or powders versus pills โ€” of young wellness enthusiasts. Body-care and skin-care launches are planned for later this year. 

Long ago Morphe started as a trade show-based makeup brush operation. It was taken over by Linda and Chris Tawil, a sibling duo who partnered with then up-and-coming influencers like Hill and James Charles to mutual benefit.


The Tawils expanded Morphe further into makeup. Morphe secured an investment from Summit Partners-backed Elevate Brand Partners in 2017 that furthered the brandโ€™s makeup expansion, and also led to the creation of a line of multibranded retail stores. 

In 2019, General Atlantic bought a 60 percent stake in the business that was said to value the company at $2.2 billion. The plan included buying and incubating more brands, and possibly setting the company up to hit the public markets one day. 

โ€œWhen and if it does make sense, or the company could be a public company, we want to be prepared to do that,โ€ said chief executive officer Myles McCormick in an interview earlier this year. โ€œThatโ€™s the goal โ€” we want to be a company thatโ€™s capable.โ€ 

As the business has moved through 2020, itโ€™s had to make some changes, including closing retail stores during coronavirus-related stay-at-home orders and severing partnerships with canceled influencers, including Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson. 

Now Morpheโ€™s strategy looks different. The business is still partnering will well-known social stars like the Dโ€™Amelio sisters, but itโ€™s also branching into music celebrity partnerships (like with Madison Beer) and at the parent company level, into noncelebrity territory, like with the Lipstick Queen and Playa acquisitions.

Three new releases are up at Ulta!



Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

Lots of newness from LQ lately!


Three new shade shifters, two new additions that turn Medieval into a line instead of just a single shade (I might need the intense version at some point ๐Ÿ˜), and a revamped lip liner.















There also appear to be several new shades in the Saint (3, I think) and Sinner lines (4, again, I think). 


ETA: oh, and if you like the Altered Universe glosses, there are several new shades available as well! I have two (Space Cadet and Time Warp), and holy cow, if you like glitter in your gloss, these are for you!!

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

These three shape shifters, plus a bunch more items, are on discount at I can't speak to how old any of the stock is, though.

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

@RGbrown I just saw this is an e-mail today, and I can't wait to try it!  I'm still kicking myself for not buying a lipstick from the Butterfly Ball line, so now I make sure to stay on top of LQ newness.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

@RGbrown, thanks for sharing! LOVE the packaging, and I hope the pigmentation is great too. I really want Lipstick Queen to focus back on delivering high-quality, beautifully-pigmented lip products, instead of re-hashing the PH-adjusted, gimmicky lipsticks again and again.

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

@MlleCC I've managed to amass many of her pH lipsticks through gwp's and such, and they don't even work that well for me. I have an ancient Physicians Formula pH gloss that works way way better ๐Ÿ˜


I have loved everything else I've tried from her though, so I'm happy to see a new product!

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

Think I'm gonna go have a look. ๐Ÿ˜„  Thx @RGbrown

Re: The Lipstick Queen Thread! ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‘‘

Another Lipstick Queen direct sale! Same items as before, but a good chunk of them are further discounted.
