I am always get asked about my colourpop picks on my Instagram so I thought I should share what I picked from this US Makeup brand. My collection is not huge and is definitely cherry picked but I love most of the bits and I am glad I picked these up.
I did buy few other liquid lipsticks, lippie stix and eyeshadows but I ended up giving them as gifts to my loved ones so I will only be sharing swatches of the ones I kept in my collection.
By the way, I paid a good amount of international shipping cost (via DHL through MyMallBox) for my package to arrive here in the UK and I bought few from Insta stores.
- Lippie Stix
Lippie stix are twist up lip crayons that comes in various shades and finishes – satin, matte and matte x. Each lippie stix retails for $5 on Colourpop website. I bought Lumiere, Frida, Cami, Poppin, Brink, Hype Girl and Brink out of which I gave away Frida and Hype Girl as gifts.
Lumiere – Lumiere is a dusty toned pink highly pigmented lipstick in a creamy matte finish. This was created by famous YouTuber and Influencer Kathleen Lights. The shade looks similar to Mac Mehr lipstick and is a gorgeous shade for Fall/Autumn. This is not very long lasting but is very comfortable to wear. You may need to reapply after couple of drinks or a meal.
Brink – Brink is a warm dusty taupe shade that looks absolutely gorgeous on most skin tones. This lip shade was created by @brittanysuleim
Cami – Cami is a muted medium dark rosy pink with warm undertones in a ‘matte x’ finish. Its a true matte lipstick and long lasting than the creamy mattes. It is MLBB kind of shade for so many.
Poppin – Poppin is the only bright lippie stix i have in my colourpop collection. It is a vibrant fuchsia shade with super matte (matte x) finish. It applies smoothly on lips and has velvety feel. It is long wearing lipsticks and is highly pigmented. You just need a one stroke on your lips and you are done!
- Liquid Lipsticks
I bought four liquid lipsticks – Solow (Ultra matte), Bumble(ultra matte), Frick n Frack (satin) and Dopey (satin) out of which I gave away Frick n Frack and Dopey to my Niece and Sister. Liquid lipsticks retail for $6 on the website. Insta stores are slightly costlier as the shipping and customs fee is involved for UK customers.
Solow – Solow is a mid toned neutral pink that works for all skin tones but looks extremely beautiful on fair skin. This shade is a cool toned pink for me and i like to pair this with dark or warm lip liners underneath. The formula is ultra matte and can be slightly drying after a while so make sure you prep your lips before wearing this lipstick.
Bumble – Bumble is such a gorgeous muted brick red for me. Colourpop describes this as dusty warm terracotta shade. Trust me, I wore this continuously for few days when I discovered this shade. This shade complements my skintone and I am sure this will look good on any complexion. The formula is again ultra matte but the shade is everything! You really need to have this in your collection.
I won’t bore you with loads of reading so I have divided this Colourpop collection post into categories..Stay tuned for more 🙂
Loads of love
