Purchased by me

Hey lovelies,

I've been bitten by the ColourPop bug! After lusting after their stuff for far too long I finally couldn't hold back any longer and organised a group order with a few friends (making the international shipping costs a bit more palatable!).

...Of course, I still had to make the most of the share of shipping costs I paid :D
I wound up with nine, count 'em, NINE Lippie Stix (and you know I already want more, wanton lipstick fiend that I am) but to save your eyeballs from being completely overloaded I'll be showing you just five today.

If you haven't heard of Colourpop, they're a US based cruelty free company with fantastic quality products ranging between $5 and $8USD. ColourPop Lippie Stix retail for just $5, but you'd never know it to look at the packaging. Holographic lettering, contrasting turquoise on the inside of the boxes, what's not to love?

The packaging for the Lippie Stix is a glossy white twist up slim tube with a slanted lip bullet. I found myself really liking the smaller surface area of this lipstick style as it allowed me more precision. Each lipstick has a coloured end cap which matches the colour inside as well as a label with the name and finish (eg satin, matte, glossy). 
The Lippie Stix have a gorgeous chocolate chip cookie scent - it smells just like the Rainbowlicious Chocolate Chip scrub to my nose, which means I'm basically in heaven every time I pop the cap off one of these. SO good.
I chose a mixture of mattes and satins for my first order and found the texture and application to be great with both formulas. All of them have a very subtle tackiness and a smooth, slightly creamy texture. The mattes seemed to be a little firmer on the lips, but they didn't drag or tug in any way, the satins had a bit more slip. They are all pretty forgiving of flaws, good news for those who struggle to keep pesky lip flakes away! (I'm dealing with some stubborn ones myself right now).


Swatched on bare skin under daylight bulbs (Creature and Feminist will be reviewed on another occasion!)

Button is a medium peach with a matte finish. It definitely comes across as more of a true peach on me than the website swatches, which look distinctly pinker - not that I mind, I'm loving this colour! Button applies really smoothly and lasts four hours on me with just a little bit of dryness toward the end of wear.

I must confess that I bought Cake primarily because it is one of my sister Casey's nicknames! Fortunately this was one of the times where buying a product for the name did pay off, I love Cake! It's a bright peachy coral with a satin finish. Texture was again spot on and it lasted for four hours.

Lumière was a bit of an impulse buy and a challenge shade for me - I'm infinitely more comfortable in bright reds and vampy purples, but I was drawn to Lumière all the same. It's a dusty mauve with a matte finish. Wear time was flipping phenomenal on this shade, with Lumière lasting a little over seven hours in all! It was super comfortable to wear and didn't feel drying in the least.

Brills is a shade I fell in love with after seeing Temptalia's swatches, it's a lavender with a satin finish. Such a cute colour, I want to wear it again soon with a warm bronze eye. It wore for four hours on me without being drying.

Again, I blatantly bought Wifey for the name, having recently married my love after eight years and two children together - here's to many more :D ('Of which?!' I can see my husband wringing his hands as I cackle and leave him to speculate). Impulsive buying habits and spouse torture methods aside, Wifey is an absolutely incredible colour and I'm so glad I picked it up. I really own nothing like it! Colourpop describe it as a 'bright lavender pink' [with a satin finish] and that hint of lavender is really what makes it unique. It wears for five hours on me.
