I am a huge Kathleen Lights fan and love all her swatch videos of Colourpop products, which is why I have always wanted to try out a bunch of these products myself. However, I have been lazy about ordering from Colourpop due to the hassles of International shipping but I finally gave in and purchased a few items during their holiday sales. Today I will be talking about the Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shades Lumiere and Heart On. Read on to check out my review and swatches of these shades.
The Colourpop Lippie Stix come in a white twist up packaging and are quite similar to the Revlon Matte Burst Crayons in terms of their formulation. The formula is a super pigmented creamy matte which is quite comfortable to wear unless you have extremely dry lips. It also looks slightly satiny in some lights so it is definitely not a pure matte. These lipsticks do transfer a bit on contact but pretty much stay put throughout the day.
As for the shades I picked, the colour Heart On is a bright fuchsia which is completely blue toned and adds a lovely pop of colour to any makeup look. This one stains the lips a little but I do not mind that considering how pretty the colour is.
I was determined to pick up at least one shade created by my girl Kathleen so I went with Lumiere, which looks more taupey nude in the packaging, but on my lips, it shows up as a mauvish pink with grey undertones. This shade is quite unique for me but I do love it for the days when I am reaching for a cool-toned nude. This shade is suitable for fair to medium Indian skin tones and may wash out deeper skin tones.
Each of these lippie stix is priced at $5.50 but it is best to grab them when they are on a discount for even cheaper or when the website is offering free international shipping. Overall, I feel that these lipsticks provide excellent quality for money and have a great creamy matte formulation. I know that Colourpop offers a ton of different formulas in lipsticks and it can be a little overwhelming to pick one, but if you like any of the creamy matte crayons available in India then you will like the Lippie Stix too. Do check out the huge range of shades that they provide in this formula, I am sure you will find something that you will love!
