…my first take on the famous lippie stix!
It now takes me a few good months before I jump into the latest makeup crazes, can you believe? I used to be one of those who’d vigilantly watch out for the first reviews of the product and then rush on over to my trusted online seller to pre-order and make sure I get one as soon as frikkin’ possible. Case in point, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, the Chanel Cream Blushes (I think I was one of the first ones globally to review this as I sourced mine from a seller who got her samples during the worldwide pre-launch! Talk about neurotic).
I’ve now tamed down from such
addic-, erm, impulsiveness. I guess it comes with the experience of having amassed a collection that’s quite excessive for one person with just one face. While I’d love to own the latest and the greatest, I have this persistent voice at the back of my head to use up or at least let go of some makeup items in my stash first before I start filling it up again. And that I did! I actually did some recent destashing online (after x years man!!) and as soon as I made my first sale, I texted my trusted online retailer Death by Lipstick if she had the Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade Lumiere. And she did.
Cutesy (almost cringe-worthy) name but let’s look past that. The matte formulation applies smoothly with minimal drag and hugs the lips like a true matte does. It feels a tiny bit creamy when swiped on but that slight creaminess dissipates once it fully sets. I experienced some bleeding on both shades so I think they should definitely be worn with lipliners if you want perfect lips. Also, while it doesn’t fade easily (longevity is at 5 hours), the edges do soften a bit as the day progresses. Compared to the recent L’Oreal Moist Mattes I’ve reviewed, these feel ‘heavier’ on the lips. They also don’t emphasize lip lines as the L’oreal ones do. But on both formulas, when you have dry patches to begin with, they will emphasize them more.
While I don’t feel that these are WHOA OMG HG-worthy~, they are definitely good matte lipsticks that come at an affordable price tag so you can hoard as many shades as you want. One of the things I love about the Lippie Stix is their shade selection – mind-boggling to choose from! They event have a mint green (Charm) and a true lavender (Brills) in their range. They also have three formulations – satin, matte and glossy.
What’s your pick?
