I confess: I’m a lipjunkie! Can’t get enough of lipliners, lipstick, gloss or liquid lipsticks. Alright, if you’re a beauty enthusiast like me,then you know the feeling of trying out a new brand. So exciting! Today I’m trying a matte lipstick by Colourpop Cosmetics. Let me show you my new Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade ‘Oh Snap.’
Instagram and Youtube are my go to source for beauty trends and inspiration. It’s also the plance I love to discover new brands that aren’t sold in the Netherlands. Colourpop is a beauty brand based in L.A., California. I’ve seen this brand pop up a few times, and was curious to try out a lip product by Colourpop. I was pleasantly surprised when one of my favorite webshops Voluminous, announced that they were gonna sell these temporary. This batch of new products sold out very fast, but I managed to get my hands on this Lippie Stix in ‘Oh Snap.’ YAY!
The Colourpop Lippie Stix come in a white little box. The box, as well as the Lippie Stix themselves have the name of the brand printed in holographic. The Lippie Stix are easy to use, you just twist the tube untill you have enough lip product.
On the bottom of the box as well as on the Lippie Stix , you can find the name of the shade. Which is great, you can store them and keep the shade names visible!
The Lippie Stix come in 5 different finishes:
Oh Snap is described as a :
“pale dirty nude pink with a matte finish.”
Look at the opaqueness of the swatch, I applied it just once!
However, the color turned out to be a bit more nude and lighter on my lips than I expected from pictures I found online, but still…. a beautiful colour. For me it quickly has become my favorite everyday nude/pink lippie. It doesn’t dry my lips as much as some of my matte lip products. In fact, it feels really creamy! It has great pigmentation, and will survive a meal or drink. It faded after about 6 hours, without leaving weird lines or patches.
Colourpop Lippie Stix ‘Oh Snap’
- Great pigmentation
- Easy to use and apply
- Affordable! The Lippie Stix are sold for $5
- Currently not sold here in the Netherlands. Hard to get a hold of without spending a lot of shipping costs.
- The scent: a slight vanilla like scent, which I could do without. Fades quickly, so you hardly notice it, once you apply your Lippie Stix.
