No7 and Poppy King

No7 have collaborated with Poppy King to introduce a range of 7 Lipsticks and Lip glosses. The shades, although bang-on trend are still completely wearable on an everyday basis.

I have a Lip gloss in Allure(£11) to show you today. Isn't the packaging so cute? Polka dots are classic and never go out of fashion.

It is a gorgeous watermelon shade in my opinion, with a hint of terracotta peeping through it. The finish is extremely wet and glossy and the pigmentation is translucent and quite natural.

Although it looks like a my-lips-but-better shade below, it is no where near my lip colour. My lips are pretty ghostly and pinky-lilac on their own. This is what I like about this gloss is that it injects a hint of colour and coats it onto the lips in a subtle manner, so much that it looks like your lips, just better. 

The gloss itself is not sticky at all and surprisingly enough can be layered on easily. It stays on for a few hours and wears off nicely, meaning it does not get all over the face. 

I like how its super reflective finish give a slightly more fuller appearance to the lips. Although its not extremely pigmented, it can be worn alone to counteract pale-ghostly lips like mine or it can be layered over a complementing lipstick. I personally like wearing it on its own as its such a fresh colour.

Quite a nice shade to have for summery, juicy looking lips. I like their consistency and might give another shade a try.

You can watch an Introductory video about the Poppy King and No 7 range below. I know it features the Lipsticks in the range but the Lip Gloss shades are designed to compliment the lipsticks and are similar to the Lip stick colours shown below.

Will you be picking up any Lip products from this range?


Disclosure: I was sent this lipgloss free to review. All views and opinions expressed are my own.

That shade looks lovely. I hadn't really considered buying one of the lipglosses but you're tempting me! I bought the lipstick in Glamour when they first came out. It's such a lovely pink and because it's quite sheer, I felt more confident going with a brighter colour.

Thanks for you great review and pictures,
