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.
History is a medium red with cool undertones. As mentioned before, these aren’t full coverage lipsticks, rather they are sheer washes of color. This red is a great red to start with if you feel red is way too bright or crazy to wear. It has a slight pink tone to it and is really shiny.
It feels very comfortable on the lips, not sticky, not dry, and there is no scent or taste at all.
Availability: Select Target stores and online at ShopBootsUSA.
What do we think about History? Is this a red you might feel comfortable wearing?
