So you must have been living under a rock if you haven't heard about the No7/Poppy King collaboration to create a beautiful range of 7 wearable lipsticks. I had two of the £5 vouchers stashed away ready to make my purchases and so I went for Glamour and Power - making them £7 instead of £12 each. If you check out the product videos, you can also see the make up looks that celebrity MUA, Lisa Eldridge has created for No7 and the gorgeous Keeley Hawes. This includes a full product listing. I'm building up a shopping list and it's all Lisa's fault!!
Anyway, back to the lippies. Glamour has taken inspiration from the 1950's and screams femininity with it's flirty pink shade, whilst Power is a shade inspired by the 1930's and was created to celebrate women's inner power. It's a raspberry shade that I think would be flattering for all skin tones. It kind of reminds me of Viva Glam Cyndi.
I haven't used either shade yet, but when I swatched them in-store they appeared to be fairly sheer, but buildable and they were quite creamy. Their diminutive size is something of an advantage. I like the fact that they can slip into a side pocket in your handbag. But you've all seen how much crap I carry about with me, so this should ease my back pain somewhat. I also really like the satisfying 'snap' when the lid is replaced. It feels quite safe, for want of a better word. You wont end up with bag fluff all over the bullet when you go to apply. Always a bonus!
Anyone else tried these lipsticks? What colours did you go for?
