All Hail the Queen– (not Mirren Or Elizabeth) POPPY KING, the Lipstick Queen!!

Lucky me, I got a chance to talk to Poppy King a while back. Don’t know who that is? If you are a beauty or lipstick junky, shame on you!! All good cosme-holics know the name and cult lipstick fave– Poppy King.

Poppy King is truly the lipstick queen– and for good reason. Check out her collection of "SAINTS and SINNERS" lip colors! Here’s a podcast (watch out boys and girls, it’s a long one–but oh so worth it!).. and she talks about her life, her collection and lots of other inside scoops for you to hear about. So grab a cup of joe (or that lush martini I am so craving right about now) and relax while you listen to Poppy tell you about what it’s like to be the LIPSTICK QUEEN!

She’s emerged again with a new line of lip colors– the Lipstick Queen and the current collections are called Saints and Sinners.

Well if you can figure out which colors are sinners (think rich, deep pigments) and saints (sheer versions of the same shades–only softer) and which suit you. There are places for both types in every woman’s life.

Here’s Poppy’s perspective on the Oscar  beauty

Helen Mirren wasn’t the only queen at the Oscars…
Lipstick Queens were everywhere as well. The red
carpet this year was distinctly red and nude–the lips
were, anyway.

Here is the celebrity way to wear your lipstick :

Glamorous red lips with minimal eye makeup:
Nicole Kidman, Rachel Weisz, Gywneth Paltrow.

Sexy nude lips and smoky eyes:
Penelope Cruz, Beyonce, Reese Witherspoon.

To ensure you look every bit the star LIPSTICK QUEEN
has the perfect shades: SAINT NUDE for a sheer nude, NUDE SINNER for rich nude. Alternatively, SAINT RED for just a hint of red or RED SINNER for full glam.

These and other great LIPSTICK QUEEN shades are all  available at BARNEYS NEW YORK  or at or .
