I'm super super excited for this weeks posts because they're ColourPop Related and I've been wanting and waiting since forever to publish them. I love ColourPop, just like the rest of the world and ever since they've started shipping to the UK, it's fair to say, I have taken full advantage. I've done three orders, yup, three, I have no shame haha! And I thought, now its about time I put them on the blog. My most recent order arrived a few days before Christmas and I have to say it was the most beautiful purely for the fact that International Shipping was free and I had no customs to pay!!! That's never happened, I well and truly dodged the Customs bullet! This post would've turned into a massive one, so I've split it into two posts, this is is about the Lippie Stixs' and the other about Liquid Lipsticks, yep, I've only ever purchased lip items and you'll soon find out, my major love of browny toned shades ... I completely forgot to mention this includes a giveaway ...
I love the packaging, the actual product is in a stick form, kind of like a lipstick in a stick, which, duh, Trishna, Lippie Stix stands for. The outer design is pretty simple, a white covering with the ColourPop placed on the side in a silver chrome/hologram effect. They are nice and compact and pretty light weight. They have an angled applicator which fits the lips and awkward parts of it perfectly.
The first words that screamed to me when I swatched these were 'woaah pigmentation' and I'll say it again, but woaah the pigmentation in these things is incredible and super intense! The lippie stixs', I have are all mate finishes and surprisingly, they do not dry out the lips. However, if you do have any dry patches on the lips, you might need to exfoliate them a little, before application, like I do, because like any lipstick, the lippie stix will catch onto the dry patch and make it more visible.
You really do get a lot out of just one swipe, it's bursting full of rich colour. They're also really smooth and pure, in the sense that the formula glides onto the lips easily!
In terms of the longevity, they last solidly on the lips, until you eat. This happens to me many times and at the end of the meal, I go to my friends, 'has that meal taken my lips back to the 90s' where the inner product on the lips fades and I'm left lined lips lol! So yeah, that does happen, and I do have to reapply after every meal but its like that for me with most lipsticks. Also, how can I forgot the feel, these are incredibly light on the lips, I often forget that I'm wearing this throughout the day and super comfortable, they don't irritate my lips or feel heavy.
