Powerful lips have never been more on trend, but what if you want something a little subtler to take you through the summer days and sleepy evenings? Lipstick Queen herself, Poppy King, has added to her ever expanding repertoire of colours with the new ‘Endless Summer‘ collection for that very purpose. Consisting of three extremely wearable shades, these lipsticks have the texture of a balm, the sheerness of a gloss, yet the format of a lipstick bullet. I love Lipstick Queen because you’re always safe in the knowledge that you’re getting great pigment, without the dreaded dragging feeling you so often get with stronger shades. Poppy formulates her products so they can be worn all day, every day without drying lips – something I can absolutely testament to as I’ve been using the nude shade below as a lipbalm substitute.
Poppy states her inspiration for the collection as being based in film: “Iconic
60’s surfer movie ‘The Endless Summer’ follows two surfers who travel
the world, following the summer season around the globe and thus
creating an endless summer. I love the spirit of this and the idea that
we can each find our own endless summer, that thing inside our hearts
that can make us happy.” I love the concept and I love the colours –
you can choose from a very natural nude, blushed pink or orange-red
shade for a pop of colour, each providing a flush without too much
impact. The formulas are enriched with natural oils and Vitamin E to
ensure lips are left looking and feeling nourished, which prevents the
need for constant application of balm over the top throughout the day.
These are fabulous colours and shades that will suit any skintone,
complexion or mood; you really can pop one on and feel the summer, even
if it’s raining.
The Endless Summer collection is available for £18.00 each from Space NK.
