COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX | REVIEW & SWATCHES


My love for ColourPop Lippie Stix is one of fairytales, I'm the Princess and these little fellas make me swoon like a proper Prince Charming. 

Since I ordered these bad boys 6 weeks ago, I've been wearing them on constant rotation. I'm just completely baffled and thrilled that a company has made such amazingly pigmented lip products, for $5 a pop (yay for affordability), not to mention they are cruelty free! These Lippie Stix can rival any high end lipstick product. All the formulas are so comfortable to wear on the lips, which I can rarely say, because my lips normally dry out after a whole day of wearing a matte lip. 



Lippie Stix come in six formulas - Satin, Cream, Glossy, Hyper Glossy, Matte and Pearlized. I have yet to try all of them, but I am slowly making it through the collection. I did however pick up the following colours: 

Lumiere (Matte) - This is my far my favourite colour and great for every day wear. This lovely lipstick was created by Kathleen Lights on YouTube and she really had an amazing eye for colours! It's the perfect on trend 90s colour, but instead of being brown it's more of a mauve/plum, which is so much more complimentary on various skin tones! 

Heart On (Matte) - I love a pink with a purple undertone, and this is just that kind of pink! The swatch above was taken in direct sunlight, so its defused the colour which is a true magenta. 

Button (Satin) - Satin is my favourite formula, it's the most comfortable to wear on the lips. Button is a perfect apricot nude, great for when you're wearing a heavier eye look. 

Frida (Satin) - Frida is my second favourite to wear after Lumiere. It's a wearable coral, not to bright but adds dimension to the lips. 

Fetch (Satin)- Fetch is a traditional mid-toned pink. Every time I see this colour, I think of Barbie's dream house and who doesn't love Barbie's three storey dream house?

Trixie (Satin)-  The name is adorable, and this is a bright coral/red great for summer. The colour has blue undertones which is great for making your teeth look extra white!

BFF (Gloss) - This one is not pictured, I couldn't catch a true colour on the lips because of its sheerness, it's a beautiful peachy sheen!

I also picked up the matching pencils and my recommendation is to buy the lipstick with the pencil, because it truly transforms the Lippie Stix and extends the longevity of the colour through out the day.  Now I'm off to do some damage to my bank accounts and order a bucket load more.  

Love,
