Now we know where K-Fed shops.
Last night, I was finally able to spend some QT in front of the mirror trying out some of the new products I've told you about lately. The one that really stands out is this awesome Oxymoron Lip Gloss ($20) from Lipstick Queen by Poppy King. I described this product as a matte gloss (hence the name "Oxymoron") but I had no idea just how creamy it actually was. The texture is unbelievably soft, and all you need is a little bit to cover each lip.
I tried the deep pink shade, called Minor Crisis, and it single-handedly transformed my face. My eyes instantly brightened, and my complexion perked up. Now I know exactly what it means to have a color complement your skin.
The only quibble I have is with the name. I am not entirely convinced that I would call this a "gloss" — oxymoron or not. It feels more like a smooth lipstick that you apply with your fingertips or a lip brush. But this product is truly unique. You can buy each of the four gorgeous and neutral shades online or in Barney's stores.

I am already royally impressed by The Lipstick Queen, a new line of amazing opaque and ultra-sheer "sinners and saints" lipsticks. So I am very excited for creator Poppy King's new product, a lip gloss collection called Oxymoron, which hits stores this week.
What makes this product so unique is that it’s a matte finish lip gloss. Yep, a gloss with a non-glossy finish. Now doesn’t the name oxymoron make perfect sense? This product does to your lips what blush does to your cheeks, giving you a sweet, romantic glow in a less-than obvious way.
The $20 gloss is available in four shades with hysterical names: honest politician (pink/brown), free ride (apricot), deafening silence (beige nude), and minor crisis (rosy pink). All of the colors are designed to look like "lip blushes," so although they are matte, they are more subtle than you might expect.
Simply apply them with your fingertip or the mini-brush that comes with purchase. Oh, and feel free to blend a little bit on your cheeks too!
