Poppy King, aka The Lipstick Queen, has teamed up with Boots No7 to release an exclusive range of seven lipsticks and seven lipglosses.
Originally hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Poppy’s fascination with lip products started from a young age with the “Magic of Lipstick” range inspired by the different eras of make-up.
Below is a short video from Poppy King introducing the collection:
I was recently sent the “Intrigue” lipstick to try which is described by Poppy as “…a great universal shade that suits everyone”.
Upon first inspection it’s not the type of shade I would usually pick for myself. However, once I applied it I found it really flattering and ideal for day time wear. It’s a very subtle colour, giving a lovely pretty pink tint to the lips so would be perfect for anyone who is lipstick shy!

Whilst I tend to favour lipsticks that have a more intense coverage, I’m not a huge fan of lipglosses so the sheerness of this lippy makes a welcomed change for me
I also love how it applies, you don’t really feel like you have anything on and it seems to moisturise well too!
Boots No7 really seem to be upping their game with the recent collections they have been releasing. Whilst not as eyecatching as Poppy King’s own brand, Lipstick Queen, the Boots No7 collaboration comes in a super sweet lilac aluminium case. At first I thought it was a mini lipstick but the bullet inside is a full 3.5g.
I wish Boots would repackaging their core range like this! Classier finish and less bulky than the permanent No7 lipsticks.
The Magic of Lipstick range is available to buy now with the lipsticks retailing for £12.
