Colourpop Lippie Stix Review & Swatches

Colourpop Lippie Stixs

Colourpop Lippie Stix are a swivel up lipstick stick with a beauty budget price tag of $5. Colourpop is a fun indie brand that I’ve been wanting to try a while now so I thought I’d start with their cult favorite Lippie Stix Lipsticks!

Shall we take a look?

Colourpop Lippie Stix come housed in a medium size white tube that swivels up for application. Each Lippie Stix has a slanted tip which fits the contour of lips nice and makes for easy application. These do not require sharpening and the slant ensures effortless application each and every single use.

One of the most impressive aspects of Colourpop is their incredible packaging and attention to detail. I can easily see myself paying $18 per a shade at say Sephora for these. Each comes housed in a very professional box with Colourpop’s logo gracing both the inner and outer packaging. This Indie brand went all out with their packaging yet still manage to keep costs down pricing these at a mere $5 each.

I got both a Satin and Matte finish Lippie Stix and unfortunately both are rather dry but I’m prone to dry lips so the formula isn’t exactly forgivable on me. If you love mattes though, well, no doubt you’ll enjoy these. They are super creamy with excellent pigmentation on the first application that builds easily. The formula is comfortable to wear but I find it accentuates my drier lips badly so lip balm and exfoliating prior proves helpful for the smoothest application. If your lips aren’t dry you should get a nice smooth, even finish with these. They wear for close to six hours without migrating or feathering. They have no fragrance or flavor. The shades I purchased look so natural and pretty on my lips and heck, even though my lips are dry as the Sahara at the moment I still think they look pretty smooth on my lips!

Needless to say I was very impressed with the formula for five bucks! Creamy, excellent pigment, long wear, what more could you want? But beware for those with dry lips as they aren’t exactly friendly on drier lips!

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I <3 colour pop. I'm obsessed with lumiere and bound. And I love their hand written note!!

  • Solangel

    Ooh Brink is so pretty! I feel like saying “lippie stix” is way more work than just lipstick…it even adds a syllable! “Lippie” word hater here.

  • Kalli

    I love Colour Pop! I haven’t tried the Lippies yet, but I have about 12 of the eyeshadows, which are super amazing. Their customer service is really good, too.

  • Caryn

    Thanks for doing this post! I have recently heard about Colour Pop through instagram and have been wondering about it.

          • Caryn

            I decided to try out some of the eyeshadows. I got the “better than a sweater” collection and “smash” eyeshadow. I am attempting to use up my current lipstick and lipgloss stash, so I’m holding off on the lippie stix.

            nice! the shadows are lovely! so soft and velvety! let me know what you think when they arrive πŸ˜€

    Glad you reviewed these. I recently discovered the brand and have been loving all that I have from them. Right now, Lumiere is my fav lippiestick. I think I may want Brink now.

    I’m becomming obsessed with indie companies and Colourpop looks a real competition. Great product, amazing package and great price! Sad for me, it doesnΒ΄t make international shipping πŸ™

    Ooh, I NEED to try some of these. I actually prefer drier, more matte lipsticks because my lips burn easily in the sun, so I ALWAYS have to put SPF 15+ lipbalm on top, and if the lipstick is too creamy, everything starts to slip off. For $5, it’s worth a try.

    I just recently discovered this brand and I am sooooo glad I did! I bought a big selection from nudes to hot pink to dark dark burgundy… and I loved them all!!

    I definitely recommend getting your hands on one of their hyper-glossy or glossy formulas. I can’t stand lipgloos, but this formula is so wonderful I am willing to make an exception πŸ™‚
