new: lipstick queen velvet rope collection.

{the queen herself}

i've long been an admirer of poppy king, the lipstick queen.  for the last 20 years she's been creating vibrant lipsticks with her niche brand.  i finally had the chance to meet the living lipstick legend at an intimate cocktail party held at the norwood club to celebrate her new lipsticks for fall 2013, velvet rope.

meeting a beauty icon is always a hotly anticipated occasion for me, and homegirl did not disappoint.  she was warm, passionate about lip color, and had a charming australian accent.  the velvet rope lipsticks were equally thrilling.  inspired by the 1940s, poppy's favorite decade, the line consists of five shades; a black red, a wine shade, a poppy red, a bright yellow pink, and a beige neutral (last shade not pictured with poppy).  the colors are insanely pigmented.  like, one swipe and done, pigmented.  housed in weighty gold cases, the tubes are outfitted with magnetic technology that makes them snap shut in the most satisfying way.  despite their air of vintage beauty they have an unexpected modern twist - a fresh soft mint scent

available this fall in 5 distinct shades at barneys new york, space NK and the lipstick queen.  $50.
