Lipstick Queen Endless Summer Lipstick SPF15

So I have a thing for Lipstick Queen, and these Endless Summer Lipsticks have been on my wishlist forever. I kept waiting for them to go on sale but they never did. Then this past May came along and there was a general sale, I was ready to give in and just get them, only to find that they've vanished from LQ's online store. I can only assume that means they've been discontinued, so I jumped over to Amazon and thankfully found some at a discounted price (should've just done that from the start...)!

There are 4 colors in this range, Aloha, Hangten, Perfect Wave, and Stoked. I skipped Hangten because I'm not that fond of nudes.

All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

These are in orange metallic tubes, though unfortunately with that sticky rubbery feel like the Saint Lipsticks. I wish they were smooth brushed metal but in the end, it doesn't bother me that much.

I love the formula. These feels similar to the Saint lipsticks to me, thick, buttery smooth, and with a glossy shine. But the two lines aren't identical--these are slightly more balmy, and with added SPF.

I don't know about Hangten, but the 3 colors I have are all shimmer free. Despite being labeled as "sheer," they show up very well, if not decently pigmented on my lips.

- Aloha: translucent warm-leaning red. I say warm-leaning because it appears neutral on the back of my hand but is warmer on lips. Definitely want a backup of this color! I love it when I find the perfect translucent red like these--I have several from different brands but still can't have enough and probably won't stop hoarding anytime soon. I think I might need help ^.^"

- Perfect Wave: semi opaque bubblegum pink but turns hot pink on my lips. When I saw this color in the tube, I was terribly disappointed. It looked like it'd turn milky on my lips :( Thank goodness it doesn't and barely missed the milky threshold.

- Stoked: perfect orange-coral. Whereas Perfect Wave is semi opaque, Stoked is semi translucent and is lovely on the lips. Want a backup of this also!

Aloha, Perfect Wave, and Stoked.

The red and orange look lovely! And with SPF, I am tempted!

Yeah, those 2 are the apples of my eyes also. But they've been discontinued, so if you want to try them you should grab them before they're gone forever.

Yeah, but trying to use up my fresh lip balms first :P

You're much better disciplined than I am for sure!
