So Hot it Pops! Colourpop Lippie Stix!

33 comments
The most-awaited post is finally here! You know you've been waiting for this post, too, after I posted two teasers!

Alright, if you're a beauty enthusiast like me, then you've probably heard about Colourpop Cosmetics. If this brand is new to you, let me lure you to my current addiction. This is also one of the reasons why I decided to let go majority of my makeup and just kept the essentials. Well, essentials and a bunch of Coloupop Cosmetics.

Colourpop Cosmetics is an online cosmetics shop based in L.A., California. The brand currently focuses on lipsticks, lip liners, eyeshadows, blush, highlighters and bronzers. What makes the brand the talk of the town (for a year now) is the fact that they are very affordable despite the very good quality of their products! USD5 for lipsticks, lip liners, and eyeshadows? USD8 for blush, highlighter, and bronze? You'd be crazy not to try not even one or two. For me, I ended up having 25 items from the brand. I have low EQ. Sew me.

Let me jumpstart my Colourpop posts with their most popular product, Lippie Stix.

Colourpop Lippie Stix
I said I was gon try just one. I ended up with 14 Lippie Stix. Oops.

Majority of the shades I got is matte. I never bothered getting their glossy finish. I know I wasn't going to like it enough despite what shade it is. I know it's just USD5 but I wanted to start off with mattes and shades I currently dig.

Colourpop Lippie Stix

Having said that, I also didn't bother getting shades that I'm not really into - purples and shocking pinks. Guys, hindi ko na talaga keri ang ganung shades eh! The last time I pulled off a violet shade was during my wedding! I got mostly nudes and vampy shades.

Cookie is a true nude beige with a matte finish. I'm trying to remember what lipstick this shade is reminiscent of but I'm at a loss for thoughts. I love how this shade compliments me regardless of it being nude. Initially, I thought this was going to wash me out. I can wear it alone or with smokey eyes! Win!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Tootsi

Tootsi is a grey beige with a matte finish. This shade is quite deceiving from the tube because it doesn't seem to have that greyish tone. But when I applied it on my lips and saw that it's greige, I got even more excited because I've been wanting to have a Greige lipstick! I saw at makeup groups that not a lot of people can pull off greige. I'm not sure if I pull it off but I'm just happy I have a Greige lipstick that only costs USD5!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Pinch

Pinch is a pinkish beige with a matte finish. It doesn't look pinkish to me but I'm glad it's still wearable!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lumiere
Lippie Stix in Lumiére on my lips.

Lumiére is a dusty mauve pink with a matte finish. This is a shade created by Kathleen Fuentes of Kathleenlights (Youtube). She said she created this shade because she wanted a shade that everyone could wear. This was released as a limited edition shade but because it has become one of their bestsellers, Colourpop has decided to make this shade permanent. I don't know, it doesn't look dusty mauve pink on my lips. Lately, that's how MAC Please Me looks on my lips.

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Westie
Lippie Stix in Westie on my lips.

Westie is a soft dusty baby pink with a matte finish. I got this because why not, right? I'm not exactly into (hot and bright) pink shades but light pink shades are okay with me. It looks muted on photo but I kinda feel like this is a little neon in person. Take the lavender undertone on MAC Saint Germain and you get Colourpop Westie.

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Button
Lippie Stix in Button on my lips.


Button is a pale creamy peach nude with a satin finish. Finally, a satin finish! It's supposed to be nude but this is brighter in person. Not exactly bright that you can't wear this during day time. I think this shade doesn't suit me. This is a toss for me. I freaking love the finish, though!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Frida
Lippie Stix in Frida on my lips.


Similar to Lumiére, Frida is a shade I got because it's now of their bestseller shades. It's a warm mid tone nude pink with a satin finish. This shade was made by Coffee Break with Dani (Youtube). This is probably a limited edition shade, too. I don't know if it they made this part of their permanent shades already. I love this shade on Dani's lips but the shade is nothing close to my lips. It looks different. I find this very similar to Button, too. Hint: they have the same finish. I'll have the side by side swatches below and they look the same at first look.

Lippie Stix in LBB on my lips.


LBB is a plum wine shade with a matte finish. This shade reminds me of MAC Rebel and Miners Cosmetics Vixen. Not saying their dupes but it within the same shade range.

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lady
Lippie Stix in Lady on my lips.


Lady is a dirty burgundy with a matte finish. Colourpop wasn't kidding when they described this as dirty. Apply this carelessly and it would turn out dirty on your lips. Description of the shade is on point. It is burgundy. BUT it looks like a toned down MAC Fixed on Drama!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Ellarie
Lippie Stix in Ellarie on my lips.


Ellarie is a deep sultry cranberry shade with a matte finish. Okay, I'm not going to lie - how is cranberry shade supposed to look like? I'm associating cranberry shade with cranberry juice (duh) and the shade that I remember is not similar to Ellarie. Haha! Even then, I find this shade very pretty. I look so feminine in this shade. It's not pabebe!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Blood
Lippie Stix in Blood on my lips.
Mahangin sa loob.


Blood is described as a deep burgundy shade with a matte finish. This shade is quite close to Ellarie, yes? If it's burgundy, shouldn't it be more brownish red? I don't know my colours anymore! I'll see if this shade is similar to L'Oreal Pure Ruby.

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Pitch
Lippie Stix in Pitch on my lips.


Pitch is a rich blackened chocolate brown with a matte finish! A true brown lipstick, finally! I had a brown liquid lipstick before from Lime Crime and I've been looking for a brown lipstick ever since. I like how this gives a sinister look because it's not a shade you'll see often. Bagay talaga ako maging kontrabida sa teleserye! If you think you can't pull this off, you can practice with Colourpop Lady - a confused brownish red shade. I think Colourpop should hire me as their Shade Namer. Haha!

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Dalia
Lippie Stix in Dalia on my lips.


Dalia is a deep warm burgundy wine shade with a matte finish. This shade is created by Megan Naik. Not sure if this is a limited edition shade. The first time I saw this at Colourpop.com, I knew I would love this colour.  I don't know why I'm liking vampy shades lately. As in exag. It's either I get a nude shade or vampy shade. Or both. Nothing in between. Well, well, well, Dalia didn't disappoint. I love this shade so much! Pak na pak sa katarayan!

I wasn't supposed to get Creature because I had one too many vampy shades already on my cart. But having low EQ, I clicked 'add to cart' then closed my eyes. Creature is a deepened blackened burgundy shade with a matte finish. I couldn't tell the difference between Dalia and Creature when I was staring at the Stix. The difference lies on application. Toink toink. Definitely darker than Dalia. Just as sexy. Another pak na pak shade!

Side by Side swatches for better appreciation.

I am so happy with my purchases from Colourpop! Most of shades look good on me. LBB, Tootsi, Cookie, and Lady were purchased from Makeovershop (IG @makeovershop) for PhP350 each. I purchased the rest from Colourpop's website. I've had these lippie stix since June but I didn't use them right away because they were too precious too use. LOL.

Colourpop's matte finish is really matte that they tug a bit sometimes. But I also have other matte shades that were easier to apply. Their satin finish is a breeze to apply! I like them so much that I'm considering purchasing new shades in satin finish (well, maybe next year). I've read other reviews that their lippie stix started melting or getting softer. Mine is still hard and has no signs of melting. Another thing I like about lippie stix is the scent. It smells like chocolate I want to eat it! Longevity is about 4 hours or until you eat. The darker shades leave a nice stain on your lips while the lighter shades eventually fade completely by end of day.

Not like your ordinary lipstick, Lippie Stix is only 1 gram which explains why they're very affordable. MAC lipstick is 3 grams which costs USD16. If you are a hoarder like me, you'd like Colourpop because you get to have more shades with a fraction of a price. Their lipliners are also USD5 each but I never bothered purchasing one because not all of their partner lipliners look the same with the lipstick. I find that weird. Some of the lipliners are darker than the lipsticks. Whuuuut.

My top picks from this batch of Lippie Stix are Cookie, Tootsi, Ellarie, Pitch, Dalia, and Creature!

Let me know how enabling this post is! I hope I was able to cover the shades you are eyeing on!


Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!

  2. i've read good reviews about these. lalo na they have the liquid lippie na rin which turns matte when it dries. Lumiere is a best seller pero bet ko yung ibang shades na ginamit mo rito (lalo na yung Cookie at Tootsie!!) which to be honest hindi ako familiar :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. I thought Lumiere lang ang maganda shades ng colourpop cos of Kathleen. And dami palang pretty shades! Dalia super bagay sayo! I found new fave, Dalia, Tootsi and Creature!:)

  4. I ordered Cake too but then I had to remove it in my cart cos I tried to limit it to 10 lippie stix :)

  5. I'm actually a bit disappointed with Lumiére. I guess it was just really hyped up cos of thw Youtuber who created it. IMO, I don't think the shade compliments everyone. It compliments the one that created it hehe :)

  6. Di ko nga mashado bet yung Lumiere and Frida eh. Those are the shades that are really hyped up! Yung Dalia gustong gusto ko rin. Pati Ellarie :)

    Thank you for this review! As a college student, I always look for affordable but has a good quality and this makes me want to try these lippies too! Since I can't wear shades that are too bright in school, I tend to look for subtle and nude colored lip products, It's a good thing you also did swatches on your lips so we could know what it would actually look like on the lips, and not only on the skin. :)

  25. Nice picks but I was kinda hoping you have Brink when you posted the teasers :)

    Wow, I've been wanting to get Colourpop lippie stixs! The color payoffs are so pretty and nice. Gusto ko yung nudes, and vamps. I would also want to try the reds and pinks. :D Affordable pa, which is super nice

    ReplyDelete
  27. I didnt get too many reds kasi theyre easily duped :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Brink was in my cart but i took it out cos similar sila nung Tootsi basing from Colourpop's website. Tad lighter lang yung Tootsi which turned out greige pala :)
