Colourpop’s Fall 2015 collection brought back the 90s vibe. “Throws it Back” collection includes 6 lippie stix, 6 lip pencils, 2 blushes and 1 pressed pigment. However, for this review, I will only feature the 5 colours of lippie stix.

SWATCHES

*please note that due to the difference in undertones, the shades may look brighter or darker to different people.

OH SNAP

Colourpop Oh Snap Review and Swatches

Described as a pale dirty nude pink with a matte finish. Oh Snap is my least favourite in this collection because I feel that it was too light for me. When I tried to apply it directly from the tube, I perfected the just-dug-up-from-the-grave look. I achieved the colour shown in the photos when I used a lip brush.

POISON

Colourpop Poison - Review and Swatches

Described as a deep brown red with a matte finish, Poison is my favourite among the colours. This and Dazed can also be worn during the winter season or in my case, whenever I want to! (because we don’t have 4 seasons in Singapore!)

Colourpop Poison

PROs:

  • The lipsticks are creamy and long lasting enough.

BERRY’S NOTE:

In my humble opinion, the product wears better if you use a lip brush to apply rather than straight from the tube. The brush helps you apply the product evenly and you can build the color (from light to dark) very well.

  • Easy to use and apply.
  • After meals, the colour faded a little, but it was unnoticeable. There was no need to reapply the lipstick.
  • No feathering despite having meals.
  • Opaque and pigmented.
  • Cruelty-free products
  • Price
    • Each lippie stix is sold at 5 USD while sellers in Singapore are giving it at an average of 12 SGD a pop.
      Each tube contains 1 gram of lipstick.

Comparing it with other lipstick products like MAC at 3g for 16 USD, it seems like there is not much difference. BUT if you are the type of person who prefers to have a lot of options but does not want to splurge so much, then this is the perfect product for you.

It is an affordable product with great quality. You really get what you pay for. 😀

  • Scent
    • It has a light vanilla scent that is similar to MAC.

CONs:

AVAILABILITY

  • The brand is not available in Singapore, but as mentioned earlier, you can just visit Carousell as this brand is being sold by a number of sellers.

UPDATE on AVAILABILITY

(as of July 2016)

Starting July 12th, Colourpop is now offering International Delivery options except for China and Turkey. There is no flat rate for shipping because the delivery cost will depend on the weight of your orders.


MAY BE A BIT DRYING

  • When I tested the lippies and for most of them, my lips felt a the dryness after 4 hours.
  • Just like in my previous reviews, I still experienced having minor flakiness on my lips. But this is something that must be expected from all matte lipsticks.

OVERALL:

Product – 4/5
Ease of Use – 4/5
Price – 5/5

  • Colourpop Lippie Stix is sold at 5 USD (1 gram of lipstick) each but if you will buy from local sellers in Singapore, it is sold from 12 SGD each. (price varies depending on the seller) If you are from Singapore and you want to get your lippie stix, check out Pingbong‘s Carousell account.

Will I purchase again?

  • If there are interesting colours available, sure!
