No7 and Poppy King Limited Edition Lipstick in History Swatches & Review

No7 and Poppy King History

Boots and Poppy King have joined forces to create a collection of seven limited edition lipsticks and matching lip glosses under the No7 brand name.

I have never used anything from Poppy King, but I definitely know the name. She loves old-Hollywood style and has been creating cosmetics for 20 years now. She has some amazing looking red lipsticks out there!

These lipsticks are not totally opaque, but rather build-able and somewhat shiny. This makes them much easier to wear for those people who are intimidated by bold colors. If you just use one layer you get a nice sheer wash, then for more color, add more layers.

The colors in the collection include:

  • History – deep red
  • Power – rose red
  • Glamour – flirty pink
  • Seduction – deep berry
  • Intrigue – pink nude
  • Confidence – classic nude
  • Allure – peach

The lipstick tubes are a really nice silvery lavender and come in a metal case. They look small, but are actually full-sized lipsticks inside.
