Back again to do a promised quick review on this lovely box of Lippie Stix. I’m in the UK but managed to get a mini haul a while back from a ‘Go Send’ service I told you guys about on a separate blog.
Treated myself to this in their December sales and I can’t remember how much I paid but I do know it was cheap…similar to our Boots/Superdrug prices. Well worth the money! I got a box called Vixen which had 6 different ones to try and an additional one called ‘Lumiere’ which was Kathleen Lights lippy (You Tube).
They arrived in a gorgeous box with a mirror inside, I was super impressed with the packaging and it keeps them all together. See picture below…
They are held in really thin and tall casing in comparison to a standard lipstick but I like them. It’s actually really easy to hold them because of this. The formulas are all different, a bit like Mac lippies, there is matte, creme and pearlized. I took swatches of them all for you and the colour pigment pay off is good on every single one. There were a couple that dragged slightly, lumiere and ruffle, both mattes. One is so creamy it could possibly break if you wound it up to high, the pearlized one called 54.
The swatches from top to bottom are Lumiere, Last Call, 54, Ruffle, Jingle, Night Owl and lastly Plastics. They have a scent to them which is familiar but pleasant. I am super impressed with these. They all have staying power, I had to really use a lot of make up remover and rub my arm to get the swatches off. I’ve also worn two of them and nothing really stays on my lips to much but these did.
We need Colourpop to come to the UK! I would highly recommend trying them. Have you any of their other products are they as good?
Love Em x
