Sometimes, a product comes into your life that you didn't know you were looking for, and upon finding it you know that you'll never be able to live without it. That's what No7 Poppy King Lipstick in Power ($20) was for us. We've been wearing pink lipstick for as long as we've been wearing lipstick at all. No one, not our sisters, not our gay friends, not even our own mirrors, told us how washed-out it made us look. The instant we applied Power, it was as if the light bulb went on and the pearly gates opened. Perhaps it was the quality of the makeup, or the precious packaging, or the fact that someone was offering us a free opportunity to change something about ourselves we had stopped giving a second thought to, but this lipstick really made us feel something inside. Ever since then, we've been wearing this rosy shade as an everyday lipstick, confident that it will last for quite some time and never bleed. And we've worn it to formal functions knowing that we look put together and capable. Sometimes, we layer it with the Poppy King Power Lipgloss, but most days we just wear this shade with an air of sophistication and maturity, leaving the Barbie pink for the little girls.
