As I promised you on Instagram, here are my swatches and review of the ColourPop Lippie Stix!
These are the first ColourPop products I kept seeing on social media and since I am a lipstick-whore, they’re what I was the most interested in trying out. Plus they are only $5.00! Then again they don’t have a ton of product in each one, but I very rarely go through a whole lipstick anyway, so the price for amount is well worth it in my book.
Lippie Stix come in five finishes (and about 10 million shades) including Glossy (medium-full coverage with a glossy finish), Satin (full coverage, hydrating and modern satin finish), Matte (full coverage, long-wearing in a matte finish), Hyper Glossy (full coverage, very creamy and super glossy finish) and Pearlized (medium to full coverage with reflective pearls for a pearly finish). I have some from all finishes except Pearlized. They contain vitamin E, mango, avocado and shea butter for comfort and moisture. You can also buy a matching Lippie Pencil for each shade, but I rarely feel the need for liners so I didn’t get any of them.
Grind is a bright purple/fuchsia matte.
Gossip is a candy colored pink satin.
Scandy is a vivid fuchsia satin.
Pepper is a lavender/pink matte.
Bound is a light rose pink glossy.
Corset is a medium rose pink hyper glossy.
Tootsi is a medium brown/nude matte.
Fern is a deep purple cream.
Brills is a muted lavender satin.
Wifey is a bright pink satin.
Lumiere is a deep rose pink/brown matte.
Westie is a pale pink/nude matte.
I love these! First off aren’t they super cute just to look at? I love the twist-up white tubes and they fit my lips perfectly when I apply them. I can definitely tell the difference in texture when I apply a matte compared to one of the others. The mattes do feel a bit more dry on my lips but not overly so. I would most likely wear a light lip balm underneath them to make them more comfortable. My favorite finishes are Cream, Glossy and Hyper Glossy just because they feel more hydrating and I like the look of a glossy lip more than matte nowadays. They are very nicely pigmented and super fun colors. Love! As far as the break-down for how many in each formula they have here you go: Matte (30), Satin (14), Cream (2), Glossy (5), Hyper Glossy (5), Pearlized (2).
I sense another order coming on soon…Which ones are your favorites?
You can find these on their website and they are $5.00 for 0.0352 oz.
