The pursuit of the perfect matte lipstick changed Poppy King’s life at the age of 18, it’s possible that it may just change yours now! I’m not suggesting that simply wearing lipstick will lead you to happily ever after, although I have found I feel darn pretty amazing when I wear the perfect shade of matte red! The brains behind cult-fave brand, Lipstick Queen shares a glimpse inside her world and the story behind the quest that created a beauty empire with her book: Lessons of a Lipstick Queen– Finding and Developing the Great Idea That Can Change Your Life.
I knew I would enjoy reading this title the second I opened the book and found the dedication: “This book is dedicated to YOU.” Poppy’s detailed account of Lipstick Queen’s success from concept to fruition is inspiring, and paired with her suggested steps to achieving your own success in everything you do makes it a worthwhile read. You don’t need the desire to create a product or start a company to benefit from her expert advice, you only have to be willing to apply some of her principles and you’ll have your own little self-discovery! I experienced a few “Aha!” moments myself as I read it, and also realized that sometimes I’m the only real road block I have on the road of life. If you’re a budding entrepreneur, need a swift kick in the butt to get out of patterns to nowhere, or just enjoy reading books that are empowering and spark ideas– take some time to read Lessons of a Lipstick Queen!
