I love a bold lip also. Like nail polish, lipstick is an easy way to transition to a new season without spending a lot of money. I've always liked the lipstick choices that were used in the catalog/online so I was psyched when I found out the name of one of the shade that I kept admiring, a super bright pink by Nars called Funny Face. I wear it almost daily. So you can imagine that I'm thrilled that J. Crew has partnered with Poppy King (aka the Lipstick Queen) to produce a shade of their own. Since I'm trying to spend less on clothes, I'll be buying this to add to my lipstick collection. My non-J. Crew collection includes many shades that my favorite bloggers wear and thankfully post. If you're a fan of bold color but want to spend less than the $18 price tag for this new creation, I suggest Revlon's Orange Flip, Hot Melon, Persian Melon, and Lilac Champagne or Maybelline's Coral Crush or Covergirl's Spellbound Envoutee.
You can find out more about Poppy by visiting http://www.lipstickqueen.com/. Ms. King also just teamed up with Kate Spade to create a capsule collection called "Supercalifragilipstick" for fall. There will be four different shades available: Pop Art Pink (a light pink), Bashful Blush (a sheer nude), Fuchsia Fete (a sheer fuchsia) and Adventurous Red (a sheer red).
