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.
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.
