NYC Trip Review: Poppy King's Medieval Lippie
I always make a point to visit a Poppy King counter while I am in NYC. She is a personal hero of mine.
She created a lipstick empire.
From the goth girl packaging to the quality lippie formula, it is all genius and fun.
The latest from the mind of Miss King is Medieval. This is a red tinted treatment inspired by the look of lips in medieval art. The women used lemon to sting their lips to look flushed and blood red. Poppy King eliminates the zing of a lemon and instead gives us just a sheer pigment with vitamin E.
The texture is soothing and surprisingly creamy. This lippie delivers a rich yet sheer shade of red. Color delivery depends on your lip pigment along with your application. Layering delivers richer more noticeable results. The bonus of this lippie is that it keeps lips hydrated and flake free. Plus it leaves no messes or trails.
It retails for $20 and is available at Barneys and Henri Bendels.
Poppy King will be reading "lips" this Saturday(November 15th 2008) at Barneys in NYC. Call and make an appointment at 212-833-2017.
If you attend please tell her that we would love for her to make a glittery gloss.
Lots of glitter, sprinkles and shine.
