Kiss Me, Kate
A review of Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick
By Jessica M and Angie W
Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen, is sharing her talent and knowledge in several collaborations this year. She has created a signature lipstick for J. Crew, a range of seven lipsticks for the Boots no. 7 makeup line (soon available in the U.S.!), and a set of four lippies for the design house Kate Spade.
The four shades in Poppy’s “Supercalifragilipstick” line for Kate Spade are Pop Art Pink, Fuchsia Fete, Bashful Blush, and Adventurous Red. They all strike a nice balance between classic and trendy, just like Kate Spade’s clothing and accessories.
Jessica has been trying out Pop Art Pink, a richly pigmented shade that looks almost hot-pink in the tube. It can be dabbed onto the lips and patted in with a fingertip for a sheerer look, or applied in a stronger swipe for bolder color. Jessica, who has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and pale skin, has been complementing Pop Art Pink with a little bit of rosy blush.
Supercalifragilipstick will be released in early September and will sell for $24 at Kate Spade stores and the Kate Spade website.
