Hello!! I placed my first order with ColourPop after hearing about a million people in the beauty community talk and rave about this company. The Lippie Stix are super popular and a few YouTubers have collabed with them to make their own shades, shadow sets etc. Now they have blushes, bronzer, highlights, you name it.
After an overwhelming amount of Lippie Stix and shadows I looked through for days, I finally picked out three Lippie Stix which I am sharing today, and some shadows that I will do a post on later this week.
The amazing thing about ColourPop is that their products are really great quality for a super cheap price. Their Lippie Stix and shadows are $5 each, and their cheek products are $8.
The three colors I chose are (from top to bottom) Westie- Soft dusty baby pink in a Matte finish, Topanga- A mid-tone dusty coral in a Satin finish - Fiesta- light peachy pink in a Cream finish. All descriptions where from colourpops website.
I sadly did not like two of the colors chose. I did like Westie but I didn't like Topenga or Fiesta. *also I did use some self tanner in this photo, so these shades don't look too bad but unfortunate my face isn't this tan so they look quite different on my pale face*
Getting the bad shades out of the way, the first is Fiesta which looks like i smeared a cream sickle all over my lips. It's almost too opaque and creamy of a color that it didn't look right. Topanga is a beautiful color, however it's too orange for me. But let's be real, I pretty much bought it for the name.
Honeslty, the shades don't look quite so bad in these pictures but this doesnt even do them justice on how bad they look! My husband even said 'those oranges will make you have clown lips' LOL.
Here is the shade Westie, which I really liked. It's a light pink with a slight purple undertone. It reminds me of Snob from Mac.
My overall thoughts-
-Since Westie is the only one I really tested out, I will say that it has really great staying powder. I can't speak for the other shades and formulas but this one is matte and it stayed put for quite a while through eating and drinking. I didn't time this exactly but I'm estimating about 5 hours of good wear.
-All these that I purchased had a creamy formula and were easy to apply.
-I didn't find the pictures and swatches on the website 100% accurate. Westie looked more light, fiesta definitely did not look like a cream sickle, and Topenga is not 'dusty or mid toned' like the description claims. The swatch of Topenga looks more of a raspberry/strawberry shade but in person, I promise it looks way orange (at least on me).
-I'm a little disappointed I didn't like two of the shades, but they were only $5 so I can't complain too much.
-I was also super impatient with the shipping time. I'm so use to getting an email from companies (sephora, ulta, elf etc) the very next day saying my order was shipped. This took almost a week to be processed, and once it was shipped it got delayed so I didn't get my order for almost two weeks.
Overall I'm pretty happy with Westie, and would like to try more but I'll be cautious now on which shades to choose!
