Colourpop Lippie Stix Review

5 Jul

Bonjour, my pretties.

I’ve always been a fan of Colourpop because the astounding quality in their products always gives you the best bang for your buck. Recently, I ordered seven of their Lippiestix and it couldn’t have been a better decision.

The names of the shades can be found on the bottom

The first thing that caught my eye was the simple, minimalist white packaging of these lippiestix.  Something about this less is more packaging makes them stand out among my makeup collection. As you can see, not all of the lippiestix have the same texture; some are matte, matte X, glossy, and satin. Matte X simply stands for Ultra matte. My favorites are the matte and matte X’s because of their high color payoffs. The glossy and satin types are more on the sheer spectrum, though they have wonderful coverage also.

One reason that makes these an irresistible buy is that they only cost $5 each and you get free shipping with a $30 purchase. New members also receive a coupon for $5 off. So if you buy seven, like I did, you spend $30 and get the free shipping. It’s great for makeup lovers who are on a tight budget.

Here are the swatches on my fair complexion. As you can see, Bound is quite sheer because it’s a glossy type. Frida and Fetch, both of which are satin types, have a shinier finish.

Results: I wore these on a typical sunny day and was amazed to discover that they stayed put for a loonnggggg time. This is both good and bad. Good in that the color never leaves my lips; bad in that my makeup remover will only do half the job because this product really does stain your lip. If you’re looking to over-line your lips, I would suggest using the matte X shades because their richness are able to hide your lip edges better.

As for eating and drinking, they do leave prints on the rims of glasses and you’ll have to reapply after each meal. I learned the hard way to not order burgers while wearing these because opening wide to take a bite of my cheeseburger caused color from my bottom lip to smudge onto my chin. Since these are super hard to remove, I had to walk around with a red blotch on my face. Not cool.

So yes, don’t eat large foods when you’re wearing these.

Besides that, these are great for the price and color payoffs. My favorite color so far is Cami, a lightweight nude apropos for almost every occasion. I find myself reaching for this shade a lot.

    So wish that colour pop would come to the UK! Custom charges are such a pain! xx

      I always thought ColourPop originated from the UK because of the U in the word. Perhaps you can try Amazon or eBay for cheaper prices!

    I’m so jealous that you got Frida! I wanted that shade but unfortunately missed out! I did a post on my colourpop lip collection and two of the lippie stix are in it! I love the formula.

      I just checked the website and can’t believe they discontinued Frida. On the bright side, they constantly come out with new shades so you’ll have plenty of experimentation to do!

    The cheeseburger gets me XD I have similar experience too. (High five) It is interesting that it is easy to get on food and face, but it is hard to remove.

      Everytime I go out and wear this, I have to take small bites!
