Poppy King Raindrops Lip Crayons for No7

I was so excited when I heard from a friend that Lipstick Guru- Poppy King was launching a new lip-wear collection for No7 at Boots; I loved her lipstick range when it hit the shelves last year!

She has recently launched a range of lip-crayons which is called the 'Raindrops' range, consisting of five different shades.

I love the trendy packaging of the crayons! The box packaging is coloured according to each shade, and is patterned with raindrops!

The lip-crayons have a built in chunky pencil sharpener above the lip-crayon, and is covered by a cap. The amount of times is countless when I've lost a pencil eyeliner or a lip-liner because I can't find a sharpener when needed. I always love a product with a built-in accessory!

I haven't tried all five of the shades, but they all seem quite wearable to me, personally. Boots were very kind  to send me two samples to try; 'Dancing' and 'Playing', which are two very lovely shades!

'Dancing'
A pink coral shade which comes out positively sheer and glossy on the lips. It isn't a bright pink, but it's a neutral pink shade.
'Playing'
An orange/red coral that comes out on your lips as a subtle orange shade if you apply a thin, gentle layer, or a glossy coral red if you build up the coverage.


Here are some swatches. On the left are some light swatches, and on the right are the full coverage ones on the back of my hand. 



The top swatch on both images are of the 'Dancing' shade, and the bottom swatch is of the 'Playing' shade.

You can basically choose whether you want a 'lipstick look' or a 'lip-gloss look' depending on the coverage you desire. I'm surprised that I haven't seen much beauty blogger hype around this yet!

I love wearing these lip crayons with a delicate, subtle coverage- and the best aspect about these lip crayons is that they leave a lasting tint on your lips for ages! Plus, the crayons are very good at moisturising your lips- making this product something that I can really benefit from! And because they're moisturising, the lip-crayon glides onto your lips so easily!

Also, before you ask- no, these lip-crayons don't have a sticky or a tacky feeling when you wear it! In fact, the lip-crayon locks in the smoothness of your lips due to the moisturising effect it provides.

No7 Poppy King Lip Crayons retail at £11.50 each, which I think is a fair price considering all of the benefits I have experienced, plus the built-in chunky pencil sharpener! :)

What do you guys think? I really recommend that you give these a go!
