In 1991, Poppy King launched a range of seven matt lipsticks, named after the seven deadly sins. She was 19 years old.

Within three years, the company had grown to be one of the biggest cosmetic companies in Australia. In 1995 she received the Young Australian Of The Year award and that year the company made a profit of $6.5 million.A few years later though, Poppy shut it down and moved to the US.Poppy has always been a leader, not a follower and she’s always been an original thinker in a way that has not necessarily made it easy for her.

Which is what makes her next move so unexpected.Check out Poppy King's cult classic lipsticks from the 90's, re-released here.
