Lipstick Queen- Poppy King Giveaway!

The response I received to this post about Lipstick Queen, Poppy King and her Sinner and Saint Lipstick Lines was incredible. Many of you have since told me you've tried the lipsticks and become fan's like I've been. One of you (Megan) even blogged about your experiences. As a blogger, it thrills me to bring products to you that you may not have known about and can really get excited over.

In order to thank my dear readers for their loyalty and enthusiasm, I have teamed up with The Lipstick Queen herself, Poppy King to bring you a giveaway to beat all giveaways!

You see, Poppy is an enormously generous person. She didn't just send me one or two lipsticks, she sent along so many amazing products that I just had to divvy them up. I wanted to spread the wealth into 4 different prize packages giving that many more of you the pleasure of experiencing them for yourself. I want you to try them and fall as hard as I have. Take a look at the goodies...

The Grand Prize
(and I mean GRAND!)

$94.00 retail value!

  • Poppy's Book-Lessons of a Lipstick Queen: Finding and Developing the Great Idea that Can Change Your Life-
    Of which, Simon Doonan writes "Poppy King is the Henry Ford of Lipsticks, and she shows you how to be a plucky entrepreneur without losing your flossy floss".
  • Saint Natural Lipstick- The sheerest, moistest, most serene lipsticks you have ever tried. Just a hint of beautiful color but enough depth to make an impact whether it be a pink nude or a deep blackberry. Absolutely no glitter (Saints are far too humble for such audacity). Soul and style in one little stick.
  • Medieval Lipstick- Inspired by Medieval times when full coverage lipstick was considered a sin. Instead, women used lemons to stimulate the lips and stain their lips a see through blood red. I have recreated this very sheer flattering look in one simple universal shade. Vitamin E based with a touch of pigment it suits every skin tone. Medieval is chic as it comfortable.
  • Oxymoron Matte Gloss in Deafening Silence- It feels as smooth and sheer to wear as a gloss but looks matte on the lips. I have designed 4 super sweet and subtle shades inspired by the colors of cheek blush so that finally a lip product can do to your lips what blush does to the cheeks...make them look glowing and romantic. Presto!
  • Shine Hard Core Gloss in Gold Saint- Inspired by the sexual revolution that was the 1970's. With an extra surge of female prowess... each shade is the ultimate in shine, gloss and effect. Not since Saturday Night had Fever has a gloss been this glossy, this cheeky, this sexy and this 70's fabulous! Baby... you are HOT in the CITY.
Runner Up

$62.00 retail value!

  • Big Bang Theory Illusion Gloss in Expansion- This futuristic formula uses small particles of shimmer to blur out lines and give your lips the ILLUSION of fuller voluptuous lips. Big Bang Illusion gloss gives you the ultimate BANG for your buck, creating perfectly full, beautiful lips without any pain or stinging.
  • Chinatown Pencil in Genre- Kooky and fun with bright colors in a super sheer, super moisturizing "draw on" gloss. Yes! Gloss in a jumbo-sized pencil (along with a jumbo-sized sharpener)... welcome to Chinatown baby!
  • Shine Hard Core Gloss in Wine Sinner- Inspired by the sexual revolution that was the 1970's. With an extra surge of female prowess... each shade is the ultimate in shine, gloss and effect. Not since Saturday Night had Fever has a gloss been this glossy, this cheeky, this sexy and this 70's fabulous! Baby... you are HOT in the CITY.

Oh this is a cool giveaway!!

I love the looks of the products--but I'm particularly intrigued w/ the "Midieval Lip Treatment."

Rachel said...

SpryOnTheWall said...

How exciting! I'm really interested in the Midieval Tinted treatment!

SpryOnTheWall said...

I posted it too!

Megan said...

I've been strategically waiting all day to space out my two entries because I'm nerdy like that. This is entry #1 - of course, I'm following you.

My favorites already are of course the Berry Saint and Medieval. Medieval is FABULOUS, ladies, and worth getting even if you don't score in the giveaway. My next purchase will probably be a Sinner lipstick, maybe in Berry again because that's such a great, complimentary shade.

I'm posting and will strategically comment later :-) I like to space them out!

Jessica said...

Wow Medieval is so Hot!!!! Great giveaway!!!!

Deanna said...

My favorite is the Sinner Matte lipstick in red sinner!

Kat said...

I love the medieval, but I MUST HAVE some black tie optional!

I most recently received the Sinner Lipstick and am OBSESSED with it! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! So, right now that's my favorite!
