ColourPop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is aptly named as it is a richer, deeper set of burgundy hues. The lip liner was a little drier and less pigmented, so it worked better for getting crisp edges or adding a layer of product for the lipstick to grab onto, but it had some unevenness on its own. The lipstick was fantastic, and it didn't need a liner underneath it to keep it in place or to help even out the color (often necessary in a creamier texture in this color family). The lipstick was Continue Reading…

ColourPop Strike It Rich Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches

Strike It Rich Colour Pop Strike It Rich Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo that features a peachy, satin-finish lipstick and a peachy, matte lip liner. The two were were very similar in color with the liner leaning slightly warmer, browner, and the lipstick leaning a little rosier, so the two combined was a semi-matte, deep peach with moderate warm undertones. 4 0 Strike It Rich Strike It Rich A Limited Edition Where to Buy Affiliate Links UltaColourPop 4 0 Where to Buy Affiliate Links UltaColourPop 9 Product 10 Pigmentation 8.5 Texture 9.5 Longevity 5 Application 93% Total

Bobbi Brown Major Crush Crushed Liquid Lip Color Set Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Major Crush Crushed Liquid Lip Color Set ($45.00 for 0.68 oz.) includes four, full-sized glossy, liquid lipsticks. Two shades--Mango Mood and Smoothie Move--are part of the permanent range, while the other two are new (as far as I'm aware). They retail for $27 each normally, so the set contains $108 worth of product for $45, which is obviously a fantastic value (assuming you'd use at least three shades!). These performed consistently with other shades in the permanent line-up as well; they were pigmented, creamy and comfortable to wear, and longer-wearing. Ginger Snap is a muted, medium-dark peach with Continue Reading…

ColourPop Winger Takes All Lip Duo Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Winger Takes All Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a lightly sparkling, peach gloss paired with a mid-tone pink with a matte finish. The gloss was milkier, so it didn't have the best application but was better than most in the same color family. The liquid lipstick was more flattering in its finish than some I've tried in the formula, but it, too, could have applied more evenly. Menagerie is a soft, pinky-peach with a creamier finish paired with flecks of green-gold, violet, and pink sparkle. It had sheer coverage (as marketed), which applied fairly evenly (impressive Continue Reading…

ColourPop x Bitti Lip Trio Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Bitti Lip Trio ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) includes three shades of the Ultra Blotted Liquid Lipstick formula, which I haven't found much success with. I actually wish ColourPop had gone with their Lux Liquid Lipstick formula, which had a very similar effect but was more successful for me. Holly Lolly applied the best, while Chew-holic and Juicy Drop were very unforgiving of my lip texture/lip lines. Chew-holic is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was as expected, but the texture was very prone to clinging to imperfections and Continue Reading…
