Colourpop Lippie Stix in Fancy and Frida (Review)

     If you are a makeup junkie like me you've probably heard about Colourpop Cosmetics. I've read reviews about their makeup products and reading those reviews just made me more curious about their quality.

     Since I am a lipstick kind of girl, I bought two of Colourpop's Lippie Stix. One for me and one for my bff Shie. I chose the shade named 'Frida' while my bff opted for the shade 'Fancy'. The two shades have a satin formula and a pinkish tone.

     I do not know what's the story behind the shade Fancy but I've found out that the shade Frida is inspired by the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. A very bold and brave name in arts whose works inspired me for a number of times. The shade was created as a collaboration of Colourpop and Dani of CoffeeBreakwithDani. Dani once stated that the lippie is also inspired by girls who love coffee. You know how much I love arts and coffee, so owning one lippie stix in Frida is like owning something worth inspiring for me. hehehe

Enough of my blabber and let's start with the product review!
PACKAGING

    The packaging of the lippie stix is simple but somewhat cute. It came to me in a box container with the product's name, manufacturing date and description. Inside the box is a piece of paper where the ingredients of the lippie stix were all written.

The tube of the lippie stix has a very sleek design. It is also light weight which makes it easier to fit in any makeup pouch no matter how small it is. The bottom part of the lippie stix shows the color of the product as well as the name of its shade and its finish.

PRICE

I bought the lippie stix for 390php each that's 8.309 USD. That's somewhat affordable but of course I have to pay the shipping fee from my seller so I spent more than it's price.

WHERE TO BUY

I do not know exactly where you can find a physical store that sells the lippie stix. It probably depends on your residence. Here in the Philippines, they're not yet available in malls and beauty outlets. I got mine from an online shop in Instagram. You may purchase their products online for sure just by visiting their website.

     The photo above shows the swatches of the two shades. As you can see, they look very identical in the photo. Both of them have a light and pinkish tone. But, once you applied the two in your lips, that's the time you can clearly distinguish the colors of the two.

Here's what it looks like on the lips:


     As you can see, the shade Fancy is definitely brighter and more vibrant than Frida. It's pink but with a hint of orange. Frida on the other hand looks more neutral. It's a combination of pink and nude, making it look more neutral.

     Talking about it's longevity, the two lasts up to 4 hours. Considering the fact that the two have a satin finish, I think it's pretty decent that they lasts long. I must say that the two shades are both perfect for an everyday makeup look.

PRO's
-  available in so many shades and finish
- smells good (it has a somewhat buttery smell)
- lasts long considering its finish
- doesn't feel heavy on the skin
- very pigmented

CON's
- isn't readily available
- can get a little pricey when purchased online

     Colourpop lippie stix isn't something that I should consider a must have for everyone although, it has more pro's than cons. I think you can have something better with using all the money you spend buying the product. The lippie stix itself is affordable, but because it's not readily available, you have to make online purchase making it pricey.

     The best thing about their lippie stix though is that they are available in so many beautiful shades and finish. Since I only have the ones that are in satin, I would love to try those that are in another finish such as the ones that are matte!

love lots,
Tin

  5. Firstly, hight five, Tin, because I'm also lipstick girl :D And now something about your review - I really like both shades, but you're right, these products are a little bit pricey (considering that when you buy them online, you have to pay shipping fees) and at the beggining, without looking at your photos, I thought that "Frida's" shade will be red (because talking about great artist, Frida - her art has character!) :) Anyway, these both shades look great on your lips, hope that you and your bff are pleased with your choices ;)

  7. It does have more pros than cons and I like how these two shades look on your lips. However, I must admit that I have a favourite and that is Frida. That shade I like best, but they're both lovely. Excellent review.
