Current Obsession: Lipstick Queen

Not only is Poppy King the creator and founder of the new line of luxury lip products, Lipstick Queen, but she is also a writer, an entrepreneur, and an inspiration to women {and men} everywhere. With no experience or training, Poppy started her own successful line of cosmetics in Australia at age 18. Following her success down under, she worked in New York for a large cosmetics corporation for several years. She recently started her own cosmetics company in NYC.

Inspired by glamorous lips across the decades -- from seductive medieval lip stains to 70's disco shine -- Lipstick Queen features "unusual lipsticks infused with all the glamour, the fun, the style and the cheekiness that is inherent in being female."

Need I even mention the drop-dead-gorgeous art nouveau packaging? Poppy has said one of her inspirations is the decadent artist Aubrey Beardsley {one of my favorites as well}. I'm pretty sure Poppy is my new girl-crush...and Lipstick Queen is my new obsession.

::Check out Poppy's story here; get your hands on her book here, and load up on her beautiful lipstick at Barney's New York.

Oooh I tracked some of this down at Anthropologie/Free People and bought a few despite the hefty price tag. I loooooove the Saint color line and I wear my Medieval lipstick almost everyday. Love love love.
