I got two of the ColourPop Lippie Stix to try over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, namely Feminist and Lumière. I’ve been seeing this brand all over the Internet, mainly YouTube, and you know I can’t resist a hype, especially if it comes with a $5 price tag.
Everything ColourPop sells is priced at $5 each, though from what I understand, they contain considerably less product than usual (e.g. the Lippie Stix have 1.5g and the MAC lipsticks have 3g).
The packaging is white with accents that match the shade. The lipstick comes out of a slanted tip, though precision is a little tough with this type of packaging.
Swatched, L-R: Lumière, Feminist
Feminist is a little patchier than Lumière and goes on a bit shiny before settling down into a matte finish. These feel a little tacky on the lips, but nothing too obvious, and they last really long for me.
I love Lumière for an everyday lip with a bit of a punch. It’s Kathleen Lights’ collaboration with Colour Pop and she claims it’s very close to the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna, which I’ve been wanting but never ended up getting. (Yet?) I feel like it clashes a bit with my skin tone? Or I never know what eye look to pair with it.
Feminist is a beautiful dark purple that can look almost black. I love this statement lip, but I realized it’s a little close to an OCC Lip Tar I just bought a few months ago called Pagan. If you’re building your collection or have a weird attraction to a particular color you don’t think you’ll be wearing often, it’s worth peeking at ColourPop.
I do like these lipsticks (ugh, Lippie Stix is the worst name), but I have way too many already to get any more. I do have my eye on a few more of them, but like I said: restraint!

Weird, on your swatch, it doesn’t look like Anna at all. It doesn’t have enough mauve. From my screen, it looks closer to MAC Please Me.
Haha I’ll wear it the next time we meet, then you wear Anna! Let’s compare 😀
These look so lovely!
They’re quite great! 🙂
Love the dark purple!
Glad to hear that 🙂
Oooh love the look of these, especially Feminist! what a gorgeous colour!!
I wore it out today, it’s quite beautiful!
Oh no, I want the Feminist one just because of the name of the color! Haha, I’ve never tried having makeup shipped from abroad though—I don’t trust the post office!
Hahaha that caught my eye because of the name… Predictable! They don’t ship to the PH, I went through a forwarder 🙂
I bought some colourpop (eyeshadows and lippies) and I can’t wait to get them!
Woohoo! Can’t wait to hear what you think of them 🙂
Why didn’t you wear Feminist? 😦
I wore it but didn’t get to take a photo of it 😦
I actually like Lumiere on you! But Feminist huhu I WAAANT! A photo of you wearing it pls :p
Yay! Haha, a post of me wearing it will go up on Monday but I actually wore it on my IG na 😀
Do want! Did you have it shipped all the way to the Philippines?
I use a mail forwarder but I think there’s a reseller on IG 🙂
Just ordered mine! Got Lumiere and Ellarie, I CANNOT WAIT <3333
Eep, so excited for you!
I love that they have some really obscure shades and also a great selection of thoughtful neutral shades. The fact that they’re made by a lot of youtubers and bloggers is also a nice touch; especially since the youtubers that they have collaborated with are some of the more ‘real’ or relatable ones
Yep, I absolutely know what you mean! It feels like they reached out to the ones they themselves enjoy watching 🙂
Lovely blog! Just followed. I love Lumière, it’s my go-to lipstick now. It’s such a perfect color!
Thank you so much 🙂 I’m glad you like it, too!
