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.

Review: Wow by Wojooh Lip Master- Tooti Frooti!

Hey friends!

Earlier this year popular brand, Wow by Wojooh (previously known as Faces), released a new Lip Master Long wear lipstick shade, called Tooti Frooti #452, as part of their Valentine’s Day collection. This review is a bit late but still this lipstick definitely needs to be reviewed. Better late than never!


The lipstick comes in a gorgeous and sleek matte black tube, with a glossy strip below. At the bottom, there is a sticker that notes ‘Lip Master’ and the name and number of this shade. The sticker shows the true color of the lipstick. The lipstick itself bears the symbol of Wow by Wojooh.


The shade Tooti Frooti is a sexy, bold fuschia red color which would look flattering on any skintone. It’s finish is matte with just a hint of shine, if that makes sense. The shine is very muted. It’s texture is really smooth and thus the application is really effortless. Since it’s a long wear lipstick, it’s highly pigmented and just one layer of it will get the job done. It’s not like applying more layers will build more color. Both the pictures above show the true color of the lipstick. This lip swatch below looks glossy and light but that’s because of the light over here. In person, the color is definitely bold, dark and matte just like the swatch on my hand.


This is such a sexy color, a staple shade for everyone’s makeup collection. Price : AED 85.
