ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Pencil in Pitch + 3 Year Anniversary Giveaway

colourpop cosmetics pitch lip liner review swatches giveaway
I didn't mean to post this so late. I know that it's already the 22nd in some countries but... better late than never. October 21st, 2015 (besides being Back to the Future's "future day") marks the three year anniversary of this blog. Time goes by so fast, etc. etc. (the usual). Honestly though, it's been three years and I am not tired of running this site and I don't see myself getting tired of it any time soon. I have changed a lot during these three years (mostly for the better) and my blog has grown a lot since that day in October 2012 when barely anyone read it. This blog started as a place to share makeup reviews (makeup is a fun hobby/luxury for many people) and different beauty looks (makeup as a form of creative self-expression). I've thrown myself into my blog before, at times when I really needed it, and it has helped me tremendously. Instead of spending hours on Facebook (which I hate and de-activated for well over a year) or on internet meme/funny sites, watching silly videos, etc. (Disclaimer: Sometimes I do those things too and I believe time you enjoy "wasting" is not time wasted. Please don't take offense.), I dedicated some of my time to this website. In return, I made new friends online (and even met some of them in person), gathered some amazingly supportive readers, got to work with brands I had been a fan of, was invited to events, and was able to use most of the revenue from the blog to support myself financially (a.k.a. pay da bills). The latter part of 2014 and the whole of 2015 have been trying. Inevitably my blog suffered the consequences and got pushed to the back burner for a while. I am only recently getting it back to its old schedule. Thanks for sticking through its rough patch!


In summary, this blog has been very rewarding in more ways than one. Thanks to everyone who visits. Thank you for taking a few minutes to browse and/or leave comments. Thank you for sharing my content. I wanted to give a few shoutouts to some girls who have been very supportive throughout this three year period. Please visit their blogs!

Sharlynn - who reads and comments regularly and always has something sweet to say.
Sha - she's a more recent reader, I think, but is very sweet and supportive.
Jennie - Her blog was one of the first I started to read regularly and she was very supportive from the start. 
Sara - who commented on my first post ever (and still does).
Also:
And many more (too many to mention or for my puny mind to remember). 

As a way of showing my appreciation towards all of you, I'm holding a ColourPop Cosmetics Giveaway! More info at the end of this post. Now onto the actual review...

colourpop cosmetics pitch lip liner review swatches giveaway

I had been looking for a dupe for Lime Crime's Salem and was directed towards ColourPop's Pitch. I had never ordered from ColorPop before but someone mentioned that their Lippie Stix lipsticks aren't true mattes (even though they are labeled "matte"). That person suggested ordering the lip liners instead (if you prefer matte finishes). After trying their Lippie Stix lipsticks myself (Lumiere and Feminist), I can confirm that they are not true mattes and resemble a cream finish. In terms of formula, the Pitch Lippie Pencil Lip Liner is very creamy and easy to apply. It doesn't apply patchy and lasts long on the lips. Since it's so soft, it looks a bit feathered around the edges. This could be solved using a lip brush, but I haven't tried that yet. I recall reading a comment saying that these brown colors looked like poop on the lips and for some time I could not un-see it. I eventually got over it and I love how they look. They are great colors for fall and even for Halloween (which is coming up soon.) The ColourPop Lip Liners only cost $5 so I highly recommend them. 

And since we're talking about ColourPop Cosmetics... 

3 Year Blog Anniversary ColourPop Giveaway

I am giving away three (3) ColourPop Cosmetics products of your choice! Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. The only mandatory rule is that you must follow my blog via Bloglovin'. The rest will earn you extra entries. This giveaway is open internationally! ColourPop does not ship internationally at this time but I wanted to give everyone a chance to try their products (which are great!) so I will order the products of your choice and have them sent to my address and then send them to you (in case the winner is from outside the United States). 

The giveaway will run from today (October 21st, 2015) until November 10th, 2015. Good luck and thank you for your continued support! :)

Once the winner is selected, I will send that person an email inquiring which three products they would like. Hopefully ColourPop will have released their new eyeliners by the end of this giveaway. I know we're all eager to try those.

  8. Congrats on reaching 3 years! I hope to be blogging that long as well! I love the look of Pitch i think it's such a great shade that's suitable for all skin tones. It's such a great fall shade for those who want to switch from the deep reds and berry colors, it's such a statement lip color imo.

  12. I love ColourPop. I think it is brilliant that they can offer such amazing products at affordable rates. I just wish their shipping rates to Canada weren't so high. I'd love it if they had a Canadian stockist.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Happy blog anniversary to The Beauty Milk! Happy to be a long-time reader and supporter :) (Thanks so much for the sweet little mention!). I haven't tried too many products from Colourpop (just a few eyeshadows), but I am curious to sample more of their products, especially their highlighters and lip products. Pitch looks ultra matte and super pigmented - it's so sultry and dramatic on you in a really effortless, cool way.

  28. Aw, I'm really happy for you! I hope to be able to pay the bills with doing what I love to do someday - but for now, it'll remain a hobby until things (hopefully) pick up. I've thought about deactivating my Facebook for the longest time since I can get so lost in being nosy in other people's lives instead of focusing on mine, but at the same time it's how I stay connected with some of my closest friends who don't live in my country. I really loved reading this post, it gives me a little pick-me-up to focus on what's important to me.
