I was enticed by this lip color months ago when it first came out. It was a custom shade created just for J.Crew in the perfect color–a universally flattering shade of red/orange/pink/coral.
And then I saw it was on sale. So I snatched a tube.
It nearly matched my nails exactly. Cajun Shrimp is a popular shade of polish from OPI that isn’t too orange, but isn’t red. And Poppy King for J.Crew is almost identical in nature–it isn’t too orange, but isn’t red either. So if you ever wondered what Cajun Shrimp would look like in a lipstick shade, well I think Poppy King is as close as you will get.
And there you have it. My discovery for the day.
Consider yourself enlightened.
*I rushed and rushed and rushed to get these photos taken so I could post this and you would be able to get the lipstick while it was on clearance. But unfortunately J.Crew sold out. I’m sorry! If anyone knows any shades similar to this one, share it in the comments below!
