Colourpop Lippie Stix in shade ‘I heart This’,Review, Swatches



Hi beauties!


Hope you all are doing well. Sorry for being MIA for last one week. I was on a week-long vacation with my family on a visit to Darjeeling. It was a wonderful trip and we had a great time and the weather was like a dream. I will upload my trip photos very soon.
Now coming to the review. I have already reviewed the Colopop liquid lipsticks earlier, and today I am here with another popular range ‘Colourpop Lippie Stix’, such a cute name right? I have got myself the shade ‘ I heart this’ and it’s a beautiful Red based fuchsia shade which can be suitable for almost every Indian skin-tone.

So let’s start with the review.


What the product says:
Every Lippie Stix has a matching Lippie Pencil that was designed to match its partner perfectly. However, we’re not trying to be a bossy pants and tell you creative lovelies what to do. So, if you want to create an Ombre lip look or something, have fun mixing and matching & do your thang! Matte finish full coverage, super long wearing, ultra-comfortable & seriously loaded with pigment in a matte finish.

Price:

$5(USD) for 1gm but I got it on 680(INR) from the Instagram Store click here


Pigmentation:

These lippie stix are intensely pigmented and absolutely long wearing. Just two three swipes needed to get the full coverage.

Staying Power:

Great Staying power I must say. Can be worn for up to 5 to 6 hours with very little fading.


My take on the product:

I love its cute packaging, which comes in a white solid plastic tube. The lipstick tube is further covered with white slim paper box with holographic letter ‘LIPPIE STIX’. The shade name is written on the bottom of the paper box. The tube has a white cap and you have to give little pressure to open it. I love how the lippie stix is edgy looking and for that reason it is very easy on each application. These lippie stix are very smooth and creamy in texture, feels very light on lips almost feels like you haven’t worn anything. These lippie stix give a total matte finish look, may be for that reason I felt a little drying effect after 2 to 3 hours of applying.  I would suggest you guys, if you really have serious dry lips and want to give it a try; you must scrub your lips very well and put a lip balm underneath.  Otherwise for dry lips it tends to get settle into your lip lines and emphasize it.  It has intense pigmentation I must say, just two swipes needed for opaque application. I found it really long wearing which stands up to 5 to 6 hours with very little fading. Even with meals and drinks the fading is almost unnoticeable. The shade ‘ I heart this’ is a beautiful red based fuchsia which can be suitable for almost every Indian skin tones. I would love to try more shades form this range.






Pros:

·         Lipsticks are very creamy and smooth in texture
·         Colorpop has some really amazing shades in this range
·         Great Pigmentation
·         Long wearing
·         Feels very light on lips
·         Beautiful matte finish look
·         Easy to apply on lips

·         Light sweet vanilla scent

Cons:

·         Little flakiness after some hours of application
·         Lip balm is needed for extremely dry lips
·         Can emphasize lip lines for dry lips
·         Availability issue

Verdict:

Overall these lippie stix are great matte finish light weighted lipsticks which is long wearing and intensely pigmented. I am impressed with its soft creamy formula and luxe quality. They really have some wide range of beautiful vibrant shades which can be worn on both day and night time and can be suitable for almost every Indian skin tones. I would love to try other shades from this range.
So my matte lover ladies, why you are waiting for? Go grab it and give this beauty a try!
