No7 & Poppy King swatch

The hotly anticipated collaboration collection between No7 & Poppy King launched in Boots today, so I thought it my duty to go and have a peek.  Sadly, my nearest Boots only had 4 of the seven shades of lipstick, and only 1 of the lipglosses.  I'm not sure if that's because everything else is already sold out, but it looked more like they hadn't got the stock in or hadn't put it out.  Either way, I managed to get the lipstick I'd wanted, in Power.  It's a lovely sheer raspberry pink/red, that I imagine would be flattering on any skintone.

The packaging is quite cute, although the lipsticks seem smaller than normal lipsticks.

It looks brighter in the tube that it swatches:

As I said, the colour is sheer and glossy (above is a heavy swatch) and it feels lovely and moisturising on the lips.  Applied:

The lipsticks are priced at £12 each (although if you've got a £5 till spit, you can use one of those for the next four days).  Will you be picking up any of the new items from the collection?
