Hello Sailor Lip Gloss from Lipstick Queen!

“This ‘naughty-cool’ twist on nautical gets a glossy makeover for the spring,” Poppy King

Following the phenomenal success of Hello Sailor lipstick, which first made waves back in May 2013, Poppy King introduces a new way to wear this ‘naughty-cool’ shade. New for 2015, Hello Sailor Lip Gloss is a sheer, shimmering and lip plumping gloss in the same head-turning and long-lasting navy sapphire shade.

Hello Sailor lipgloss and box_AED140Enriched with Vitamin E and natural oils to keep lips smooth, soft and hydrated, this remarkable, conditioning lip gloss has absolutely no hint of stickiness or gloop. Its texture is more akin to that of a serum, with nourishing Meadow Seed Oil, moisturising Shea Butter, Omega 3, 6 and 9 and anti- oxidant Vitamin E for lips that feel soft and pampered. The plumping action comes from Maxi-lip, a natural peptide that stimulates collagen synthesis. As for its extraordinary topaz blue colour, this morphs on the lips into a flattering pinky mauve and the additional blue pearl shimmer will make your teeth and the whites of your eyes appear whiter and brighter.

Let’s donate clean water with Essential Mall & UNICEF!

Dear friends,

Shopping is not only a global phenomenon, it’s also a very satisfying one!. Don’t you agree with me?. Especially with online shopping, things just got easier. Shopping for just about anything, from the comforts of your own home, is wonderfully convenient. Now consider this : What if you could be a part of a noble cause and donate to needy children around the world, while shopping for your favorite products?. Doesn’t that just elevate the satisfaction level involved in the shopping experience?.

Let me explain more. Essential Mall is a popular shopping site in UAE. What most might not know is that Essential Mall is a non-profit global and socially conscious online shopping network. Since 2014, they have partnered with UNICEF. They donate 100% of their net profits to UNICEF’s water aid mission, where UNICEF provides clean essentialwater to where the need is greatest.

The process is a very transparent one. When you shop on Essential Mall, for every $1 AUD (AED 2.83) you spend, 1.2 days of clean water are provided to a child by UNICEF. Other than spreading awareness about this mission, in this post I also wish to give you a code!. When you use this code, you will help double the social impact. So, when spending $1 AUD, you will be able to provide 2.4 days of clean water!. It creates a huge impact in the long run.

The social impact code is naznin

With the help of the below pictures, I would like to give you a peak into how this simple process works :

Suppose you decide to buy a ‘Redness FX Calming cream for dry skin’, which costs AED 91.81. On placing it in the cart, you can see under Social Impact that with this purchase you will help provide 38 days of clean water!

Now after applying my code, naznin, you can see that you are now helping to provide 76 days of clean water!. Can you imagine the social impact you create just by shopping!. You are not spending anything extra just for charity sake. You are just going about doing a normal and simple act as shopping but at the same time making a huge difference..

Sometimes it’s easy for us to not think about the world and It’s wide array of problems. It’s so very easy to get lost in our own world and our little problems. But did you know that one child in this world dies due to consumption of contaminated water every minute?. “I am just an individual and what difference can I possibly make” might be a question on your mind. But you, yes YOU, the one reading this right now CAN make a difference. Simply shop on Essential Mall. To date, Essential Mall has created over 220,000 days of clean water.

Essential Mall stocks more than 30,000 products and also offers between 10 – 90% off!. Popular brands on the site are Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Benefit, Dr. Hauschka, Clarins, Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy, Kevyn Aucoin, Lipstick Queen, Lancome, Max Factor, NARS, Laura Mercier and many more. Also, at the bottom of the site, you can find linternational links to the same site that serves in other countries such as US, Canada, India & more.

As of 21st April 2015, Essential Mall has stopped paid advertisements and depends on social volunteers to spread the word about their noble mission. When you use my code, other than doubling the social impact, I do not get any monetary benefits from it. Also, I am not paid in any manner for doing this post. I urge you to use the code naznin while shopping on Essential Mall and also, kindly spend a couple of seconds to hit any of the share buttons below this post.

Meet Lipstick Queen’s Frog Prince!

You may need to kiss a few frogs to find your prince but with Frog Prince, your search for the perfect pink is over!” – Poppy King

Lipstick Queen_Frog Prince _with box

Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived a beautiful queen who longed to find the perfect rosebud pink lipstick. And try as she might to find that fairy tale perfection, her friends quickly brought her back to reality. “Too sweet!” cried Goldilocks. “Too pale!” said Snow White. “Too cupcake!” followed the Gingerbread Man. The queen despaired and all but gave up on her quest until one day she chanced upon Frog Prince. This astonishing emerald green lipstick was not all it appeared to be! As soon as she touched it to her lips, the sheer green pigments suddenly transformed into a magical and flattering rosebud shade that seemed to have been made for her and her alone. With its semi-sheer, glossy finish and petal-soft texture enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E, Frog Prince was exactly what she had been searching for! And just like true love itself, this enchanting shade was made to last. The queen’s lips remained blissfully pink all day long from just one lingering, magical Frog Prince kiss.

But even more surprising was how different it looked on the lips of her friends. Magically adapting to their natural colouring and pH levels, Frog Prince transformed into a warm, earth-toned blush on Goldilocks’ golden complexion whereas on Snow White it became somehow brighter and more vivid against her snowy skin. Seeing that no two pairs of lips would ever look the same when wearing this enchanting lipstick, the queen realised that this idea of perfection, for which she had searched for so long, was not one single shade after all. What she had been looking for, she now understood, was something that would allow her unique spirit and beauty to shine through. A lipstick that enabled her to show her own true colours. Whatever shade of pink that might be. The End. 

Frog Prince from Lipstick Queen will be available exclusively on the Fashion Floor of Harvey Nichols in Mall of Emirates between the 30th April and 10th of May!  It will subsequently be released in other outlets across the UAE. Frog Prince costs AED 140.
