Beauty Review. Lipstick Queen's Big Bang Theory


It is no secret the staff at Second City Style are huge fans of Poppy King's Lipstick Queen collection. Her colors and textures are amazing. But something was missing. Gloss. Well no longer. This spring she welcomes Big Bang Theory – Illusion Gloss to her collection. What's the big illusion? Creating the look of fuller, beautiful, Angelina Jolie lips without the sting or injections.

The idea of Big Bang Theory – Illusion Gloss came when Poppy was reading an article about the re-creation of the The Big Bang Theory. The term Big Bang generally refers to the idea that the universe has expanded from a finite time in the past, and continues to expand to this day. “As with everything I read, see, touch and experience, I thought about how I could relate this fascinating information to lips. I thought of my theory, that the right ratio of shimmer to shine can create the illusion of plumper lips.”

All eight shades has the exact ratio of shine to shimmer to create the illusion of fuller lips. So don’t waste anymore Space on lip plumper’s that sting – with the right formula, the possibilities for fuller looking lips and luxurious comfort are Infinite.

What I love most about the gloss is that it's not sticky and the shades compliment my lipstick. My lips do actually look fuller….again, I'm hooked.
