For the Sake of Sensitive Eyes, let's get LIPPY! MAC & Poppy King

It is the brunt of Spring in Australia and sadly, my eyes do not like it. I am allergic to loads of things anyway, but pollen seems to affect me the most. So thanks to my itchy eyes, I was able to justify spending my hard earned cash on some new lip products!

No makeup on the eyes means I can go absolutely nuts with lips. So naturally I went nuts at MAC first. The shade in the middle (Vegas Volt) had been on my mind because a girl who works for MAC had popped into my work with it on, and MAN it made an impression! Then, in an attempt to find a hot blackberry colour, I picked up Rebel (right) and frantically tried it on after a quick try on the back of my hand. Perfect dark pout!

The Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil (the one that looks like a crayon) was the most exciting to me because I had learnt a few weeks earlier that the creator of this new brand was none other than Poppy King. For those of you that are not familiar, Poppy King is an Australian who started her own cosmetic brand at quite an early age. She became very successful but unfortunately her company went bust about a decade ago. So here is her comeback! My mum and I were so excited to hear this, and the products happen to be magic. Go Aussie! The pencil is more like a gloss then a lipstick, but I love that I can layer it on without worrying about the colour going all over my teeth! The shade is called Thriller and makes me dance like a zombie every time I wear it :)

Here is my arm with some swatches of my new babies.
