Lipstick lovers unite! Poppy King, creator of cult Lipstick Queen, has created 8 lipstick and lipgloss shades for No. 7, the Boots in-house makeup brand. Released some time last week, I emailed my best friend in UK about it.
"It is," I wrote, "your duty to check them out and pick one for me."
"No problem!" she replied cheerfully. "Just tell me which swatches you want to see."
"Everything, of course," I told her.
An hour later, my Blackberry started blinking.
"I am at Boots!"
From top to bottom: History, Power, Glamour, Seduction,Intrigue, Confidence, and Allure.
Formula wise, the lipstick feels like lipstick but apparently the glosses are on the sticky side.
"What on earth is the difference between History and Power?" I asked. "They look the same to me."
"I can't tell the difference either. But Power is supposed to be raspberry while History is red. Allure is on the peach side and I can't tell the difference between Confidence and Intrigue."

We have no idea if this collection is a limited edition release. Hopefully not as I am hoping to get one of these. The sheer formula sounds quite similar to the Lipstick Queen Saints range so it would be interesting to compare it again my favourite Saint Rust.
Agent Bunny is frankly doubtful if it's worth paying full price for the lipsticks in this range as the packaging is smaller and slimmer than other lipsticks.
The Poppy King for No. 7 lipsticks retail for GBP 12 while the glosses are priced at GBP 11. If any UK readers picked one up over the weekend, leave your comments and share!
