no7 and poppy king lipstick

I'm sure that most of you have seen a few posts already about the new No7 & Poppy King lipsticks so I won't ramble on for too long. There are seven lipstick shades and seven lipglosses in the collection all priced at £12 each. I got sent the shade 'seduction' which I'm really pleased about as I love dark wine coloured lipsticks. Given my age most people might think that's quite odd but I'm always happy to take on any lip colour as a challenge no matter how bright, or in this case dark. Well I say dark but it's a rather deceiving lipstick and just comes off as an opaque wine colour on the lips. I also really like the sleek packaging, the lippie come in a violet toned metal tube and is really small and dainty in size. It has a great moisturising consistency which stops your lips drying out in this hot weather. Pair the lipstick with sun bleached hair and you have the perfect day time slightly grunge inspired look.

''Lip colour has a seductive mystique that is as inviting as it is mysterious. For this I designed a rich blackberry shade. This shade has enough depth to look great at night but is also appropriate for daytime wear - simply slick on the gloss to glam up your look for the evening.''

  1. I really want to get a couple of these but man do I wish the No7 vouchers were still on.

    That shade is gorgeous! Would love to see it on you.

  2. This has to be the most pigmented I've seen. I gave them a miss because of the sheerness. x
