Boots No 7 Poppy King Lipstick Number Two Power  ($9.99 USD) — No7 has collaborated with lipstick legend Poppy King to create an exclusive range of lipsticks to change women’s’ views of lip color forever. Wearing lip color has a powerful effect on both the wearer and the beholder. It brightens your day and everyone around you. Poppy King designed a rose shade that is as powerfully stylish as it is pretty. The lipstick is quite  sheer but is easily buildable by dabbing on the color with feather strokes.    To finish it off? Poppy suggests layering on a slick of the accompanying lip gloss ($9.99 USD) for a shiny finish.  Purchase at www.shopbootsusa.com or Target stores.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Lip Gloss ($23 USD) — This long-lasting, non-sticky gloss delivers shimmery color. Formulated with conditioning botanicals and vitamin E to moisturize, hydrate and protect lips. Plumping shades provide noticeable results without the tingle and irritation experienced by most lip plumpers.  Available at www.ybskin.com. Enjoy!

New Products From Lipstick Queen

My favorite lipstick maven, Poppy King, has come out with some bright lip colors for fall. I love wearing light shear lip glosses in the summer, but when the temperature dips, I like to wear brighter colors for the fun of it!

I love the 15 Minutes of Fame lip gloss ($16.50USD) which is inspired by Andy Warhol’s Pop Art movement. He predicted in 1968 that, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes”. Kind of evokes todays reality stars, huh? This shiny, not shimmery gloss is available in 15 shades ranging in very light pink, bright orange and dark red. A color for everyone! These glosses are fantastically glossy and full colored, which is great for the fall. I have shade 14 Minutes — Gorgeous Grape. It is dramatic and fun, great with a little neutral shadow, black liner and lots of mascara.     

Chinatown Glossy Pencils ($20.00 USD) This jumbo sized pencil (that comes with a jumbo-sized sharpener) comes in 5 bright colors that glide on so smoothly. Don’t be afraid of the shades because they are super sheer and moisturizing. My favorite color is Thriller, a sheer scarlet red. I do not wear reds because they make me look like a kid wearing mom’s lipstick; but this one is fabulous. If I keep the rest of my face in neutral colors, I actually look cool and sophisticated. 

I highly recommend that you visit www.lipstickqueen.com and purchase any of the fab products. They are all great!
