Poppy King for Kit Cosmetics

The ‘Lipstick Queen’, Poppy King, returns to Kit with two new collections. If you didn’t already realise the makeup maven is more than a tad obsessed with pretty pouts and can relate anything back to lips – even humankind’s best theory on the origins of our universe. That’s right one of her new collections is inspired by the lofty heights of the Big Bang.

Time to get spacey; The first collection is indeed called the Big Bang Theory and is a set of plumping glosses that use light and shine instead of irritants to make your lips look bigger.The design also encompasses the space-age theme as they come in a container reminiscent of a test tube with the applicator tip apparently styled after a space probe. There are 8 shades all up – Time (nude), Expansion (pale pink), Space (grey pink), Infinite (peach pink), Cosmos (ruby), Energy (red), Creation (rose) and, the hue that sounds the most intriguing to me for the upcoming winter season, Black Hole (wine).

The next range is called Black Tie Option Sheer Seduction which consists of a pot of lip gloss and a lipstick both in a sheer inky black thus the ‘black tie’ of the title. You can wear these over other colours to change the shade or on bare lips. They both sound interesting to experiment with especially for evening.

All the aforementioned products will be on the shelves at Kit stores from Monday 23rd February. And Poppy King herself will be making some special in-store appearances in celebration of this. On Wednesday 4th March from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Poppy will be discussing her work to date, her new range and personally finding the perfect shade for every guests lips at Kit (530 Chapel Street). Each guest can also have their lips done by the team. This event costs $45 which is redeemable on purchases on the night but you’ll have to book on (03) 9827 5988.

She will also be spotted at the Kit counter in Myer Melbourne (Thursday 5th March and Friday 6th March from 12-3pm and 4-7pm) and at their store in Westfield Doncaster (Saturday 7th March from 1-4pm). Here you will be able to meet Poppy, find your own perfect shade and also have your lips done. No bookings required for this one.
