Must-Have: Poppy King Offers Up A Velvet Rope Collection
Yes, Miley Cyrus’ MTV performance was… er… unsettling, so let’s steer the conversation back to something a bit more ladylike. For instance, today’s must have — Poppy King’s Velvet Rope Collection.
Set to debut in September, Poppy King’s latest lipstick offering will hit the luxury market with an Old Hollywood bang — modern day formulations of richly pigmented hues housed in vintage-tinged gilded bullet tubes, modeled after her own collection of golden vintage minaudières. At $50 a pop, the Velvet Rope Collection veers on the pricey side of the spectrum, but the formula weighs in as no-less-fabulous than its elegant packaging, offering up richly saturated coverage without any tugging, pulling or drying out your pretty pout.
King spent eighteen months fiddling with various ingredients, finally settling on a concoction that includes silicone, vitamin E, and apricot oil, to create smooth, soft, and hydrating lipsticks in universally flattering shades, like a bold pink called “Private Party,” and an intense deep red called “Black Tie.” There’s even a small dose of peppermint oil to make for a slightly minty application, and a satisfying magnet snap closure that makes the tube feel glamorously weighty. You’ll want to open-reapply-close all day long — but you won’t have to. This stick is meant to stay.
