Colourpop Lux Lipstick As Great As All Those Ravings

Today seemed like a good day to review and swatch up the new Colourpop Lux Lipstick Collection that everyone on the Internet is raving about. I admit I take the ravings with a grain of salt! For example, just yesterday I was watching a few review videos for the new Memebox I Dew Care Space Kitten Mask I reviewed yesterday and all were glowing. Not many people mentioned how painful the mask was to remove and someone even called it subtly scented. Everyone has different views and opinions on products. I, myself might love something that you all hate. However, lately I’m a little more cautious when reading or watching reviews. Even when I read an Amazon book review I feel absolutely let down at how many five or four stars it gets only to buy it and be disappointed after reading it. Most of the reviews on books or other products on Amazon even when verified seem to be sponsored or samples were given or a gift card was given to the reviewer to purchase the item. Speaking of gift cards, that means the reviewer is actually buying the item and that “verified purchase” really means nothing at all. Most upsetting of all is how Goodreads is now all filled with stellar reviews on books that were given to the reviewer free of charge. It used to be a great community to get real honest reviews on your next big read.

Anyway, rant over. The moral of the story is I did read and watch the Colourpop Lux Lipstick reviews with caution. However, in this case all of the ravings are true! This is an excellent formula. It’s no real surprise though as Colourpop has produces a fairly consistent formula across the board and rarely disappoints (although there have been items that have disappointed me in the past).

Available in 24 shades Colourpop Lux Lipstick are 0.12 oz in size and are priced at a very affordable $7 price. Each lipstick comes housed in a stunning rose gold barrel flecked with tiny stars which are also embossed on the lipstick itself. The barrel actual has a some weight behind it and feels quite luxurious. Speaking of luxurious, this formula feels quite luxe as well.

Colourpop Lux Lipstick Swatches (On Display and On Repeat)

I purchased two shades as many of the colors I wanted sold out before I had a second to grab them. Both shades I got had a satiny matte finish with no sparkle, shimmer, or glitter. They had an easy smooth glide across my dry lips without clinging to drier spots nor falling into my natural lip lines. The color was very smooth. The texture was creamy, fairly lightweight, but not terribly hydrating nor drying. I got five hours out of each shade without migration or feathering issues. The color did stain my lips as it faded away. Needless to say, these are opaque and super pigmented on a single application.

There are many, many drugstore lipsticks that are around the same price range and a bigger size (typically 0.15 oz) but I think the formulas are no where near the quality you’re getting with Colourpop’s Lux Lipstick. Don’t get me wrong I can name quite a few budget lipstick I love but Colourpop does top that list in terms of crazy pigmentation, awesome wear time, and texture/formula.

I’m glad to see them branching out to a more traditional lipstick since I’m not a huge fan of the long-wearing liquid lipsticks that dominate their permanent collection.

All in all, Colourpop Lux Lipstick is beautifully formulated, wears well, and won’t break your bank account.

Loves ’em!

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.

  • Jess

    Hi Muse, I’ve been reading your blog for several years but rarely comment. Just want to say that I really appreciate your honesty reviews. You and Christine are the only two bloogers I trust to be fair and unbiased. I always turn to you before buying something. Thanks for all you do for us.

    • Isabella Muse

      • Jess

        Hahaha. I just now reread what I wrote and typos galore! But you know what I ment 🙂

        • Isabella Muse

          I didn’t even notice them Jess! I’m the queen of thinking faster than I type and hitting submit which results in stupid grammatical errors 😀 <3! Don't worry, I got you totally and your comment made my month!

    • Janice Sanchez

      I came on here to say exactly what you said Jess…so true!! Please keep those reviews coming Muse 🙂

  • Maria

    These colors look nice on you. I have to check out the website for all the shades. Thanks for your review. Happy Valentine’s day!

    • Isabella Muse

      aw my pleasure ;-D Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you guy/girl gets you some yummie chocolate ;D

  • Angela

    These sound great – I’m dying to try ColourPop but I need to wait until they offer their free international shipping!

  • Sleepybird

    Looks like I am gonna have to break my no buy. I am not concerned that they are a smaller size as in my entire life I have never actually finished a lipstick!

  • Diana

    Hope you had a nice Valentine’s day& got a break from busy work mode. Was looking at these and came straight here for my Muse approval I noticed that with good reads -its taking the fun out of searching for my next good read!

    • Isabella Muse

      I had a great one. My BF works in CA so he flies back and fourth constantly. I didn’t expect him to show up yesterday but he did. We hung out in bed and watched Altered Carbon with ice cream (not to mention he got me some stupidly geeky v-day gifts). He had to leave today but at least I got the few hours to geek out with him 😀 It was just what I needed after the stress of the week. I wake up at stupid ass o’clock to drive him to the airport (he was going call an Uber but I’d rather drive him myself) but it was worth it ;-D Omg right I used to love goodreads but now everyone gets free books from the authors and their reviews are so wishy wash. Almost everything I’ve recently read from goodreaders recommendations hasn’t been half as good as the reviews are. BLAH! Hope you had a good V-Day too!

  • Diana

    What a romantic, sweet surprise, swooning here lol I thought you were going to say Dr. Who marathon with chocolate cake lol I haven’t seen Altered Carbon yet but if you saw my Dr. Who dvd collection you know im gonna check it out. Fellow geeky here! Mine (now my husband) travels a lot too on location…doesn’t it make that brief surprise time extra special?! And you are the ultimate girlfriend- getting up before the crack of dawn just to drive him and then work a long day zzzz speaks volumes. I live in CT now and take the train in to NYC airports early because I’m not a great a.m. person lol Thanks Isabella, had a nice one! I “surprised”an elderly neighbor who was alone (my guy had to be in California, funny enough ) with dinner and chocolates. Spreading the Valentines spirit made me happier than her

    Goodreads 80% off and i didnt get anything this time ugh. It’s like reading fake Amazon reviews now.

    Musings on literature? Hmmmm…..just a thought!

    • Isabella Muse

      It was a very lovely surprise! I came home to see his converse by the doormat and I was like “wait, what?!” 🙂 I’m not much of a v-day person to be honest but it was a lovely surprise! LOL hey, chocolate cake and Doctor Who I can TOTALLY dig lol! Altered Carbon is turning into a nice sci-fi. We got a few episodes in and we’re going to try to watch some more this weekend when get gets home. I just love Joel Kinnaman! I miss the Killing! ugh you can totally relate! Oh god I’m not, he’s the good one as he is back and fourth, back and fourth. I head to CA a lot less than he comes to NY. He’s the good one! The least I could do is drive him in plus it gives me some extra time with him. I’m not either! OMG I hate the morning. I’m a zombie until 5PM and than I’m all out party. Total night owl! Oh gosh that is too sweet! You are a lovely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right? It used to be such a great community and now it’s just all fake reviews. 🙁 Oh sure! Any time at all! I’m a bookworm 😉 I’ll read anything with words.

  • Diana

    I feel the same about Valentine’s day! Pick me up takeout or a book “just because” on a dreary Monday and you have my heart! I will check out Altered, I didn’t know Joel was in it ooh sounds good. Don’t get me started on shows I love that seem to get canceled because I’m enjoying them lol

    The grumpy cat is my face in the morning exactly. I will never be coherent in the am no matter how hard I try. Night owl sisters!

    • Isabella Muse

      Amen. I don’t need one day in the year to make me feel special or loved. Whoever you are with should be making you feel that way everyday and if they aren’t, well, time for a new special someone 🙂 I’m an easy going person and don’t require a lot. Just a little something, a nudge to know you’re my partner in crime and you got my back is all I need. A small gift of a book, taking me out for sushi, or just texting me a dumb meme is enough to say “Hey I was thinking about you!” without having to say it ;-D I really don’t need chocolate, diamonds, and expensive dinners on Valentine’s Day! The holiday is just a bit dumb to me. No offense to anyone who loves it 🙂 I’m a romantic but Valentine’s Day just doesn’t really rub me right. Can you say Firefly? Cancelled! lol! 🙂 so many good ones, long gone. HA! me too! I’m horrible because when that alarm rings I just wanna lay there until 6pm. Come the evening I’m ready to party. But it sucks because I’ll stay up late and be miserable in the AM. Makes me an even worst morning person due to staying up late. ;D

  • Diana

    I am officially, your older, yet makeup challenged twin!! Amen well said Isabella !! My feelings exactly.

    See you at 2am, watching dvd’s of our long gone favorites 🙂 And I will be here when Jodi debuts!

    • Isabella Muse

      lol girl I’m makeup challenged too! I dunno how to apply makeup to save my life haha! I’m glad someone agrees ;-D <3! Sounds like a plan to me! I'm with you 200%!

  • genevieve

    Happy Valentines Day to you and there is no better way to celebrate than to get some new, inexpensive, but great lipsticks. These shades are gorgeous and I think their new line is perfect.
