NATIONAL LOLLIPOP DAY

Happy National Lollipop Day queens! We love a sweet treat more than anyone, so on our day what better way to celebrate than announce a competition for our Glossy Posse?

The countdown is on with only 14 days to go until the launch of GlossyPops. We’re giving our loyal, day one followers the opportunity to get their hands on a Glossypop before anyone else by announcing a giveaway on Instagram! To be in the chance of winning, all you have to do is head over to our Instagram, like the competition post and tag your Glossy Posse! We will be choosing 5 lucky winners from the comments next Thursday (26th July).

In the mean-time, we’ve been looking back on lollipops in the limelight including the fierce girl making the sweet candy the greatest accessory…

Nicki Minaj not only makes the lollipop look like the most instagrammable prop, she still looks like a boss queen whilst doing it. We might not have her attitude but we will definitely buy a red lolly on our next trip to the sweetie shop (or two). 

Remember that ‘California Gurls’ music video with Katy Perry’s cream bun underwear and candy pink hair? There’s no doubt her name made it into the lollipop top five when her whole set evolved around lollipops in her 2011 tour. We’re talking lollipop backdrop, lollipop bra, accessories- the lot! And we loved her all the more for it.

The iconic Madonna 1983 lollipop shoot; goes without saying.

F-E-R-A-L-I-C-I-O-U-S. The entire Fergie music video featuring Wil.i.am was based around the world of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory (but slightly more pimped out). This goes one step further than just lollipops and features the singer laying in all types of candy, coming out of a giant birthday cake and dressing up as a Girl Scout.

Finally, the time JLo did a photoshoot for Stuff Magazine. Whilst making the giant red lollipop look like a bed-time snack, she takes the crown for the ‘girl next door’ look.

We can definitely see why there’s an entire day dedicated to the lollipop, now it’s time to glorify the Glossypop!
