No7 Poppy King Lipstick: Number 3 Glamour compared to Lipstick Queen Saint Pink
There has been a lot of blogger buzz about the collaboration between the Lipstick Queen, Poppy King, and Boots No 7. Unfortunately these lipsticks are harder to find than hen's teeth; by the time I found them in a Boots shop my £5 off vouchers had run out. When Boots recently started up another 3 for 2 offer on No 7 I gave in and ordered some of the Poppy King lipsticks online.
Glamour is described as a flirty pink shade. The No7 PK lipsticks are quite sheer although buildable, and similar in texture to LQ Saints. There is no shimmer in either lipstick. Compared to Saint Pink, Glamour is a brighter, less browned pink shade.
At £12 each, these are quite expensive for a high street lipstick. although they are less expensive than the Lipstick Queen at £17 each. I'd say they are worth getting in the current 3 for 2 deal (as long as you don't mind the sunscreen smell) but I'd hesitate to pay £12 each for them. I'd struggle to pay full price for any No7 item though, due to the frequent 3 for 2 and £5 voucher deals.
