Happy Friday, chickadees! Yeah, I just noticed 9/10 out of my posts start with "Happy whatever-day-of-the-week-it-is!" Is that a weird thing to say? Probs. Anywho, I'm kicking off the new year with a ColourPop swatch-a-thon of their latest Lippie Stix. My fiance actually surprised me with these for Christmas and I'm just now getting to sit down and play with them. Mom problems, guys. You better believe my boy's toys were all opened and sprawled out within minutes on Christmas. My stuff? Opened two weeks later. Cheers.


Let's get to swatchin'.

If you haven't tried the awesomeness that is a ColourPop Lippie Stix, you are totally missing out. Think of a stick of butter (stay with me here, I promise this won't be weird) and then rub it on your lips (okay, it got weird). That is what a Lippie Stix feels like. They're pigmented and smooth. They are probably my favorite product from ColourPop.

  • Can't Wait - a muted rose matte.
  • Jingle Ladies - a matte deep berry. 
  • With The Band - a peachy pink matte. 
  • New Rules -  a matte dusty mauve. 
  • Candy Paint - a matte true terracotta. 
  • Who Run This - a vibrant rusty red matte. 
  • After Shock - a matte classic pink.

My thoughts?

The Matte X still stands as my favorite formula of the ColourPop Lippie Stix. It's just so damn smooth, pigmented and creamy but dries down nice and matte within a minute. It's not overly drying and I can rub my lips together without them feeling like sandpaper. They're not completely transfer proof but the wear time is about six hours before they start to fade.

My must-have shades: After Shock, New Rules and Jingle Ladies although honestly, there's not a bad one of the bunch!
