Pretty Pout

Lipstick Queen Poppy King was in Australia last week, visiting from New York for Kit Cosmetics where she was running in-store events & playing match-maker, uniting woman with their perfect lipstick shades all across Australia.

I have long been a fan of Poppy's - I loved her book Lessons of a Lipstick Queen, which gives a backstage peek into the phenomenal story of how she created & built a cosmetics empire, starting when she was just 18 years of age! I love her entrepreneurial spirit, her creativity & most of all, her passion.

Following the phenomenal success of her Poppy King lipsticks in the nineties (there wasn't a single glamazon that didn't own at least one of her legendary matte red bullets), she has now re-launched with a newly formulated range of lip treats. Part of this range is the Saints & Sinners collection. As their names suggest, they offer two widely different options. The Saints collection features sheer, semi-glossed lipsticks with just a wash of colour (10% pigment), while the Sinners are rich in colour & intensity, perfect for making a statement. Both offer a wide selection of shades, ranging from subtle nudes, through pretty pinks & corals to daring, punchy reds. Each equally gorgeous, it's purely a choice of how you like to wear your lip colour.

My perfect match? Prescribed by the Lipstick Whisperer herself - Saint Rose for subtle daytime prettiness and Saint Red for a pop of sheer colour, perfect for nights out with the girls drinking cocktails...or days that just demand a little glamour, Poppy-style.
