Product love: Poppy King’s No7 Lip Crayons

My new summer crush isย Poppy King’s No7 Lip crayons.ย These are super easy to apply, moisturising lip colours ….and masquerading as lip pencils! They come in a cute range of colours, Dancing, Playing, Singing, Skipping and Smiling. Some of them provide more coverage than others so it’s good to test them out on your hand before you buy. They last for a fair amount of time but reapplication is needed after drinking, eating, snogging etc.

A little pricey at ยฃ11.50 a pop, but definitely worth having one in your handbag as it doesn’t take up much space and it comes with its own pencil sharpener. Marvellous if you ask me!
