I'm a bit late to the Poppy King for Boots Collection party, but I am pretty impressed with this gloss. I was a bit worried when I saw the tube (it looks pretty opaque and dark in there, doesn't it?), but on the lip it comes across as a slightly translucent pinky-mauve-nude shade that is just a bit darker than the inside of my lips. Which is pretty much the exact shade I've always heard is your "perfect nude" lippie. It has a pleasant taste and isn't sticky.
