It’s here – my first makeup review post for this month! Finally, I purchased my first item from ColourPop. It’s been a while that I’ve noticed this brand. I believe the lippie stix of ColourPop are already available here in Philippines through online shops. And just last month, while checking out the online shop @cebumakeuponline, I was hooked on the newly delivered shades of ColourPop lippie stix. There are lots of shades available and everything was pretty! But then, thinking about how tight my budget was, I only have to buy one. So from all the shades I’ve been eyeing, I got my first ColourPop Lippie Stix in Brink!
Whenever I buy a lipstick, I usually go for red or pink shades. I am more comfortable of these colors. But, I thought it’s time for me to try something else. I really did not know what to expect upon buying this nude color. I was not even sure if it will look good on me. But, so far I like it that I use it as my everyday lipstick for the past 2 weeks already.
This lippie stix is packaged in a circular white tube and it has the name printed on it while at the bottom of it, you can see the corresponding shade. It is a twist up lipstick that you can easily apply. You just have to hold it like a color pencil or a marker, and you are totally good to color your lips. So easy! One of the things that I like on this, it’s very light and not bulky in the purse. Very space saving indeed!
From all the shades available, I picked Brink. It is a nude color that is also has a matte finish. It is basically described as warm dusty taupe. It is more on a brown hue but there’s a hint of pink. From the swatch above, I had it in 2 swipes and you can see how pretty the color is!
So here’s a lip swatch! This is how it looks like on my lips. There is a bad lighting during the time I took this picture but it is prettier in personal. I’ve been using it for a while and I can say that it’s long wearing. It can take up to 4-5 hours. Not bad right?
Brink is so far a good buy for me. It’s very light, not bulky, and very travel friendly when in terms of packaging. It is pigmented and also has a very considerable staying power. Thus, it’s worth the money I spent. One thing though, I am not that fun of the scent. Some may like the smell but I personally don’t like it much. The name printed on the body of the tube also wears off easily. :(
