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.
