Last week I was sent a brand new lipgloss to review. The lipgloss in question is an exciting new collaboration between lip stick Queen Poppy King and Boots Number 7. The new range features 7 shades especially developed by Poppy King to celebrate the magic of lipstick: History, Power, Glamour, Seduction, Intrigue, Confidence and Allure.
Poppy King is an Australian entrepreneur. She is best known for her company Poppy Industries and the range of cosmetics available at Poppy Stores in Australia, during the 1990s. Poppy is renowned for creating a daring range of lip products born from her love affair with lipstick and designed to make every woman feel special.
"It was in danger of going the way of the Sony Walkman," Poppy King says of the fate of lipstick, the once essential cosmetic that's spent the last decade in the shadows of sparkly gloss. But with opaque shades of orange and fuchsia all the rage on the Fall runways, a bolder approach is back in favor, and who better to lead the charge than this Aussie native and former Estée Lauder executive? Now she's collaborated with No7 to create a gorgeous range of must-have lipsticks and glosses.
On Intrigue, Poppy says; "For over a century now women have been intrigued by the ritual art of dressing up their lips. For this look I designed a subtle pinkish nude that is incredibly flattering without being fussy. The right lip colour will light up your skin and hair giving you a stunning glow - Intrigue is the colour of natural lips, but bolder and brighter".
And here's what I say;;;
Although I feel this colour isn't best suited for my skin tone, there is no denying that the formula is highly pigmented, long lasting, non sticky and shiny.
All the shades in the collection are really wearable and it's nice to see a sensible brand such as No. 7 colaborating with such a quirky brand which is proven in the choice of packaging they have produced for the collection. It's colourful and fun.
All lipsticks and lipglosses are onsale now in Boots stores or online and retail at £12 and £11 respectively.
