Poppy King Magic Of Lipstick for Boots No7







Just a little guilt-free impulse buy.

These aren't new. Poppy King Magic Of Lipstick for Boots No7 series has been around for over a year (two years, I think, in the UK), but I ignored it when the lipsticks first came out because as much as I like the texture and wear of Poppy King's Lipstick Queen line, I never found a color that really excited me (most of them looked just a little off). I forgot about Boots No7 collection even existed until I was placing a regular order on Drugstore.com and one of the lipsticks magically appeared on the side bar. Before I knew it, three of those were added to my cart.

It was a good buy.

The lipsticks are sheer, moisturizing, and unscented. The pigment intensity is medium-low (the swatches above are two coats each) as is the longevity, so they wear like a gloss, only with a satin non-glossy finish (did I lose you here?). They're great for applying on the go, give a shot of color with no fuss and look effortless and casual. The packaging is cute and the whole vibe is of something far more expensive than the $9.99 price tag.

I could have picked all seven shades of this Poppy King collection, but I've stuck with the first three:
#1 History- cherry red. It actually leans berry on my skin and lips . The sheerness makes it a great choice for beginners.
#2 Power- raspberry. It's one of my signature colors, so the sheer version is great for quick makeup looks.
#3 Glamour- a beige pink. In my universe this is a nude color.

When Poppy King Magic Of Lipstick collection for Boots No7 was released they said it was a limited edition. However, the lipsticks are still widely available, including at Target. $9.99 each at Drugstore.com.

  1. I picked up History at Target a while back and it's currently my favorite red lipstick. I should get more of these. They really feel like they're worth more than $10.

  2. This is one of my favourite lipsticks - I wear Intrigue, which is a more neutral, sheer red shade. (I'm scared of 'big lipstick'.) It's wonderful and feel so lovely on the lips. Fabulous.

  3. I agree with Elisa--these feel higher-end than $10! The tube is a bit lightweight, but the actual product is very good. I own Power, the raspberry shade that you reviewed above, and I love it.

  4. I have History which is a gorgeous color but for some reason I find that it feathers. So I wear it now with a clear lip liner and it's fine. I just have to remember to apply the liner.

  5. I love Poppy King lipsticks and have several. Unfortunately my gripe is not with the product but the top-they aren't quite snug enough and always fall off, usually leaving lipstick on the inside of my makeup bat. I wind up putting them in another container.
    I haven't found these at my local Target, I must bite the bullet and purchase online before they are gone!
