Bags of Beauty Blog: Why I love the new No 7 lipstick and lip gloss range by Poppy King

The collaboration of No 7 and lipstick guru Poppy King means that we’re in for a treat as No 7 has recently launched the Poppy King lipstick and lip gloss range, which comes in 7 different shades; History, Glamour, Allure, Intrigue, Seduction, Confidence, and Power. All the more for us to choose from!

Here's Poppy talking about her new No 7 lipstick range in a little more detail:

No matter how jam-packed your handbag is, you’ll still be able to fit this amazing lipstick in as it’s tiny in its appearance, but you still have an average sized lipstick inside- reminds me a bit of the Tardis really…

On top of that, the lipsticks feel incredibly light when you're holding them in your hands. The design is also very sleek. I have to disagree with those who say that the lipstick and lip gloss range could have been more creative when designing the packaging because I think the lip sticks look really cute, and a simple design really works for it.

I was sent a lipstick and a lipgloss in 'Intrigue' which Poppy King describes as subtle and a "nude with a little bit of pink". I really liked this shade as it's quite a neutral shade but with a coloured element to it. My other favourite shades include Glamour (a flirty pink) and Confidence (a warm golden glow).

3 reasons why I love the lipstick:       
-   The lipstick moisturises your lips and keeps them smooth.
-   You're in control of the boldness of the colour: the more bolder you want the colour- the more levels of lipstick you apply.
-   When applying the lipstick, it has a very glossy feel to it, and it looks glossy too.

3 reasons why I love the lip gloss:
-   Acts like a lipstick/lip gloss in one.    
-   Provides your lips with deep colour and high levels of shine.
-   When applied, it doesn't feel as heavy as other lip glosses.   

Here are a couple of tips to remember when applying lipstick:
-    Place a folded tissue between your lips in order to get rid of any excess colour after applying the lipstick- this will prevent the lipstick from getting onto your teeth.
-    Try not to rub your lips together as the colour of the lipstick will end up over the outline of your lips.
-    After applying lipstick, if you feel you want to add some shine, but not too much shine, add some vaseline/lip balm onto your lips.

No 7 products are available to purchase at Boots.
