ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in Feminist – $5: Dark and vampy lipsticks are difficult to master. A lot of formulas are either dry or patchy (or both!) ColourPop Cosmetics has gotten a lot of attention over the past year. I’ll admit that when I placed this order, their selection wasn’t as vast as it is now and Feminist was something I sort of threw in my cart in order to reach the free shipping threshold. I had seen swatches of it online and it looked pretty nice. I was hopeful to see if I could find a good dark purple lipstick. Here are my thoughts on it in case you’re interested in a color like this one.
Lippie Stix have an interesting shape. They’re much thinner than a regular lipstick bullet but not nearly as thin as a lipliner. The tip is slightly slanted. This takes some getting used to but in general it allows for a precise application. ColourPop describes Feminist as a “black purple with a matte finish” but I don’t consider ColourPop mattes to be real mattes. They look and feel more like a satin finish. Feminist is very opaque and pigmented. It’s creamy and it glides on easily across the lips. The thinness of the formula causes for some sheerer looking spots but overall it’s a good lipstick at a great price.
Any recommendations on products I should try next from ColourPop?
