Colour Pop released a new formula of lippie stix. Well not technically new, they released Matte X with the lippie stix Trust Issues earlier. I'm assuming that they realized it was bomb and then they decided to release an entire line. Which I'm in full support of.
So they released 15 shades of the Matte X formula. They do have other mattes, these are more matte obviously. So I've heard great things about all the neutral and more wearable colors. However, I heard the ones that were bright and different were harder to work with and of course I went with those.
Above I'm wearing Topless on the top left. Barely There is the bottom left. Climax is on the right.
I got two shades that I heard were difficult and then one that wasn't. I personally didnt have an issue with any of them. The swatches above are: Climax, Barely There, and Topless.
Yes those names are the real names lol. I find them comfortable. Way more comfortable then most liquid lipsticks. They can look a little dry but with a good lip balm they're fine. They wear really well for a long time. If you don't like liquid lipsticks but you need more staying power from a lipstick i woukd get these. They are $5 a piece and you can't beat that.
The color Topless is very similar to CP Pacific and Botanicals or in between. Pacific is matte formula and a shade darker than Topless where Botanicals is more like a sherbet color.
Barely There is very similar to ABH Sweet Talker liquid lipstick. Super similar. Darn near dupe.
Obviously I dont have anything close to the shade Climax which is a matte blueberry color. Most blues that I have are very metallic with shimmer in them. Its hard to find a matte navy blue.
So that's it. Short and sweet, they're awesome and I highly recommend them. If you find they do get too dry or look cakey just apply a good balm first. Or use a more moisturizing one if the one you have isn't doing enough moisturizing.
