Poppy King has teamed up with Boots No7 to create her new Rain Drops Lip Crayon. These launched mmmm, I’d like to say Summer 2012 in the UK but it could be Spring. Don’t quote me there. I did originally blog them on the launch in the UK but I never actually tried them.
I’m happy to report though that the Boots No7 Poppy King Rain Drops Lip Crayons have launched here in the US.
Take a look!
Supposedly these Lip Crayons are already available at Target stores as of August 26th but I haven’t yet caught a glance of them in my stores however, perhaps I wasn’t looking hard enough!
These chubby pencils are $9.99 each and available in five shades. It’s nice to have a budget version of Poppy’s Chinatown Glossy Pencil as you can get two of these for the price of one of the Chinatown Pencils!
These are a little bulky since they have a large attached sharpener on the top of each pencil. Not really a huge issue but it does add some bulk to it when carrying around in a makeup bag. The formula is disappointing compared to Chinatown’s glossier texture and finish. They carry more of a balmy-ness to them with a thicker texture and feel on lips. They won’t win any awards for being lightweight that’s for sure. The color I tried, Dancing, produced a nice tint to lips with sheer to medium coverage depending how many swipes I used.
Overall, I wasn’t particularly fond of these considering the success I had with the gloss and lipstick Poppy did for No 7 prior these pencils. You’ll like them if you’re ok with a balm-y lip color that’s a bit heavy and lacks shine. I wanted something more glossy with perhaps a hint of tint but nothing too dramatic. These deliver more of a color rich experience in a heavier formula with no shine.
