ColourPop Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencils

Hello my peeps!  I have spent the better part of this week still trying to get over this crud.  I mean, seriously, how much snot can one person’s head produce!! Where does it come from?  My head and sinuses are still so full of pressure.  Ugh.  Thank goodness someone invented the Neti Pot.  If they hadn’t, I think my noggin would have exploded leaving behind something akin to ectoplasm!  As in “Ghost Busters”.  Me, sink, saline solution, warm water, Neti, and kleenex have been one these past few days.

ColourPop Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencils

Despite all my congestion issues, I wanted to share my thoughts on the ColourPop Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencils.  Afterwards, I have a date with my sink.  And Neti.

ColourPop Lippie Stix And Lippie Pencils (top to bottom: Bichette, Dalia, Creature)

My picks were Bichette, Dalia, and Creature. All three are matte formulas.

As with my last ColourPop Eye Shadow review, my pics are all over the place (thank you head cold and meds).

ColourPop Lippie Stix And Lippie Pencils Swatches (L-R: Bichette, Creature, Dalia)

I ordered both the Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencil in Bichette and Creature.  I got the Lippie Stix only for Dalia.  I figured the Lippie Pencil for Creature would work for Dalia, and it did!

I thought about doing different photos for pencil alone, pencil with stix, stix alone. But it would have been way too photo heavy and I would have had to spread it out into several posts.  So I will consolidate it for you.

Bichette:

The Lippie Liner is an exact match for the Lippie Stix.

ColourPop describes it as “deep red wine”:

On me it is a lighter, cool toned red.  I lined my lips with the pencil, and filled in with the stix.  You could fill your lips with the pencil first, then apply the stix; but it is so pigmented, there’s really no reason to.  The pencil keeps the color in check from fading/bleeding.

Creature:

Again, the Lippie Liner is an exact match for the Lippie Stix.

ColourPop describes it as “deepened blackened burgundy red”:

On me, it is more of deep berry/burgundy.  In this photo, I also lined my lips with the pencil, and filled in with the stix.  Again, this shade is so pigmented, you really don’t need to double dip.

Dalia:

The lippie pencil for Creature actually works for this color.

ColourPop describes it as “deep warm burgundy wine”:

My lips aren’t lined with the Creature pencil, but it does work.

Honestly, Creature and Dalia are very close in color.  Though it’s hard to tell in the photos, Dalia has a bit of a copper/brown tinge to it, as you can see in the swatches.  But they can share a Creature or Dalia lip pencil interchangeably.

Since matte formulas and darker shades are my favorite, I am really happy with my choices from ColourPop.  They have performed great on a day-to-day basis with bold colors that last.  Matching lip pencils are always a plus.  Since I do tend lean towards bolder shades, having a lip pencil to help keep it in line is awesome.

I am very impressed with the matte formulas that I chose.  They were very pigmented, easy on the lips, and had great staying power.  After eating/drinking, you do need a touch up.  The lipsticks were never drying/uncomfortable on the lips.

If you do use a lippy pencil all over your lip, and apply the lippy stix, your color won’t budge.  A bit of overkill for my color picks, but in lighter/neutral shades, I would recommend it if you are needing a bit of extra staying power.

Again, thank you for reading!  xoxo

      Thank you so much! And thanks for visiting! They are a relatively new brand here in the US. I think they are doing very well, and I’m sure will be expanding into your area of the world soon! xx

    Oh my goodness, Karen! That was me for dayyysss! Weeks actually! Me and the sink were best friends. I still have some congestion, but nowhere near as bad as it was a week ago. I finally gave in and bought some Afrin, bad, I know. But it helped SO much! I just couldn’t deal with the pressure and sinus headache I had. I felt like my head was going to explode! Now I just have some sniffles, that’s about it. I think it’s allergies now, because my eyes water like crazy. Stupid weather! LOL!
    Anyway,I hope you get to feeling better soon!
    All of these look amazing on you! I have Bitchette, really like it. I love the formula of these.

    xoxo

      Glad you’re feeling better Lily. For me, Afrin is a necessary evil. I use it in emergencies, and I have had to use it a couple times this go round! Thank you for the compliment!

    I got OCC Black Dahlia in the Sephora Give Me More Lip kit and I love it but do not love the application. Its a pain in the ass! I plan to purchase Creature as it looks along the same lines. Do you think Creature or Dahlia are closer to OCC Black Dahlia? I don’t think the OCC color has any brown in it its more of a dark wine purple.

      I don’t have the OCC Black Dahlia. Have you tried just using just a teensy amount, like smaller than a BB (as in BB gun)? That works for me, as in the past I was applying too much. Anyways, I think Creature is definitely closer. I think Black Dahlia may be a bit deeper. But as you know, the Lippie Stix are a breeze to apply!!!

    I love your lippie choices! When I saw this picture on Instagram, I thought it was in black and white and then saw how dark the shades are, which was intimidating but they all looked so pretty on you! Their matte formula is one of my faves too.You still look great love but I hope you feel better soon.
