It was of last year that Colourpop has hit it’s high and for some reason I was just seating at the back and watching. I’m not a snub when it comes to imported brands, in fact my wishlist is a bit lenghty. One of the main reason why I seldom have featured them is to be honest lips compatibility. The last that I owned with less problems dealt with is MAC The rest, it’s a fail.
It was only of this year that I finally give it a shot. Luckily I was able to acquire from a vlogger with less hassle as opposed to placing an order online. It was priced lower that the actual for it’s a preloved. I got the Colourpop Lippie Six in Tutu. It is a deep red wine color that is very unapologetic even for the summer/spring.
I owned a number of this shade and for the record, it’s my current favorite.
As I told you on my recent post here just in case you missed it, is that I now found myself gravitating to semi-matte or demi-matte lipsticks. For the sole reason that I had a severe case of lips chaffing and it was really unpleasant. And using matte after matte just worsened the case even applying lip balm religiously. Though I can’t totally let go of it, with all honesty so a tad matteness will do. As long as it’s nourishing, not drying and comfortable to wear. Saying these as now my lipstick requirement, Lippie Stix has it all three. In addition, the color payoff is just so rich. It leaves a faint but remarkable stain that won’t oblige me to retouch which is a pet peeve. Application is so smooth because of it’s semi-matte finish.
So far my Colourpop experience is a success. I love that after days of using, it didn’t give me any problems. My lips didn’t suffer from drought. So with the success of the road-test, I think it’s a go now for other Lippie Stix colors I should say. My next agenda is to try the other kinds if it would give the same effect.
Another would be their eyeshadows since now I’m slowly learning my blending skills. My imagination ran wild as I was reading Zovesta’s feature on them. They spoke in my dreams. I was getting all excited with the thought of those wonderful colors.
Have you joined the Colourpop bandwagon yet? Which is your favorite?
