Hello everyone! I am so excited to review the Colourpop Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencils!
Colourpop is a fairly new brand that is growing in popularity. I absolutely love their eyeshadows (review coming very soon!) and when I found out they were releasing lipsticks I was so excited!
These lipsticks and lip pencils will make their debut on September 18th, with 20 shades available in three finishes: Matte, Glossy, and Satin. Colourpop will then expand this range at a later date to include over 30 shades of Lippie Stix and Matching Lippie Pencils.
The shade I have to show you today is Grind, which is a Matte formula, with the matching Grind Lippie Pencil.
When you place an order with Colourpop, they always provide you with an information card about the products that you ordered, which I love.
Let’s start with the Lippie Pencil. I really do like this formula. It is super creamy for a lip liner but long-wearing and it keeps your lipstick in place. The shade Grind is just a little bit more pink than the corresponding lipstick, and I really don’t think a lipliner is necessary for the matte formula, because it is very long wearing on its own, but it’s nice that Colourpop has provided corresponding liners for their lipsticks.
This is the Lippie Stix in Grind (with my lips lined with the Lippie Pencil). As you can see in the swatch it does appear to have some shine but on the lips it’s totally matte.
I absolutely love this color. I think it’s so gorgeous and the perfect purple with pink undertones.
I do find the formula to be very drying, however, which I was disappointed with. It’s not that comfortable to wear on it’s own so I recommend using a very hydrating lip balm with it. I do think it’s worth working with, though, because the color is really gorgeous.
I really can’t wait for the entire line to come out, because I will definitely be trying some other colors and formulas! I will probably buy more of the lipsticks than the pencils, but it is very nice to know that a matching liner is available should you need or want one!
As I mentioned before, these will be available for purchase from the Colourpop website on September 18th, and both the Lippie Stix and the Lippie Pencils will be $5 each.
