Poppy King The Magic of Lipstick Boots No7 Lipstick & Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen, has launched a brand new collection for Boots No7 entitled the Magic of Lipstick. The best part about this collection is you can snag it at a bargain price at your local Target!

Take a look!

This collection features seven shades of Boots No7 Lipstick and seven shades of Boots No7 Lipgloss all for $9.99 each. Poppy’s Lipstick Queen Collection is considerably higher priced so this is affordable collection.

The interesting thing about the collection is it’s somewhat of a new take on lipstick for Poppy considering how loud and bold she likes her shades. Going into a purchase could prove disappointing since you might be expecting her incredibly pigmented lipstick formula in these No7 Lipsticks and sadly that’s not the case but needless to say they have a texture and formula equally as fabulous if you’re comfortable with a more sheer lippie.

I’d dub these a lip conditioner formula of sorts as they are highly moisturizing, have a nice glide on lips, and apply with a sheer to medium color pay off that builds easy enough. The glide of the lipstick is a joy as it doesn’t skip, apply sloppy, or leave behind too bold a look. The shade I tried, Intrigue, which is a nude reddish pink, enhanced the shade of my lips without looking to overly done. Drier lips will appreciate the hydrating formula here since some Lipstick Queen products are unforgivable with drier lips but this has no such issues.

Although the lipstick itself has a nice shiny gleam topping it with the No7 Lipgloss is the order of business to not only add a mirror-like finish but also to intensify the lipstick shade and give it a little bit of pop. Lucky enough each of the lipsticks features a shade of lipgloss in the same shade. This is a traditional gloss with a sponge tip applicator, a bit different for Poppy since her collection normally falls into the realms of 90% lipstick products and not gloss. I thought the formula had a lovely moisturizing feel but ran a bit thinner and lightweight sans a tacky, sticky feel. The lack of tack prevents it from wearing long but for the hour or two it is on lips it creates a nice finish and works lovely cocktailed with the matching lipstick.

Overall, The Magic of Lipstick Collection is a little bit different from anything Poppy’s done before but I can honestly say that both the lipstick and gloss proved to have very nice formulas with a few small quirks. I’ll happily haul these when I see them at my local Target as the price can’t be beat.

    I got the Glamour shade of the gloss, I wanted the lipstick but lately I haven’t even been giving my high end lipsticks any love so I didn’t want to spend more on them when I’m in a gloss mood! Anyway I love the feel of the gloss, even though it doesn’t last the longest…it feels incredibly smooth an moisturizing…I’ve been using it nonstop since I got it! I can’t wait until my spending ban is lifted, I definitely need a couple more colors :). Glamour is a great MLBB color but I want something with a bit more pop as well.

    It looks so nice and jelly on your lips! I might have to pick these up just for that finish!

  • Lorraine

    So pretty! I loved the lipstick queen lipstick and gloss in “jean queen” and those were almost double the price. These seem kind of similar so I will definitely be keeping an eye out at target..

  • S

    Very pretty Muse! Looks like the gloss is more pigmented than the lipstick? I can’t wait to see these at my Target!

    • the Muse

      true that s ;-D gloss has alot more pigment but both are a great formula ;D!

  • Jessica Allison

    Wow, I really am surprised these are so sheer- why lend your name and reputation to a product if you’re not going to carry forward the principals you’re known for? I also would have liked to see a little more design carried into the lipstick case- why not a cute polka-dot lid to the tube?

    • the Muse

      very different ck, not as pigmented, and a more lighter texture with a glossier finish ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Maria

    Ooooh that color looks so pretty on you!!! Definitely want it! Do you know if they’ll be available on Target or any US stores?

    • the Muse

      hi maria I mentioned in the post where to purchase hun already hope it helps! thanks!

  • JenJ

    Sweeeet! WIll look out for these! I have a set of her gloss and lipstick that I got from the Q and I like them.

  • Healthtips2day

    Fantastic shades, especially the, Intrigue. Great suggestion from your end. Thanks .

  • Majick

    Great color choice Muse! Looks great on you.

    Poppy is known for pigmented and sheer lippies. These remind me of the Saint colors (10% pigment). SInner colors (90% pigment) are the really intense ones. Maybe the boots line will come out with more pigment later?

    • the Muse

      hey majick I have several saints and they are def pigmented to me ;-D not as sheer as these! Maybe! either way they rock!

  • Logan

    Thank you for wearing the lippies! I appreciate the arm swatches always but it helps to see the product used on the face.

    How cool is it that Boots products are available in the US now??!! Deffo picking this up on my next London adventure

  • S

    I ordered Intrigue lipstick from the Boots site & it’s gorgeous!! Just got it today & I’m really happy with it. Sheer nude/pink with no shimmer or sparkle=love!!

    Picked up the lipstick a few weeks ago and found the formula a tad dry. Regardless, I’ve been toting it everywhere with me for the past two weeks because I love the color so much. I may have to pick up a couple of spares, lol!
