ColourPop Favorite Lippie Stix & Ultra Matte Lipstick Comparison, Review, Swatches, & FOTD

Over the past year, I have accumulated quite a number of products from ColourPop, and today I wanted to review some of my favorite lip products from them, mainly their Lippie Stix and their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. To jump to the conclusion, I ADORE their ultra matte lipsticks more than I love their lippie stix, and would recommend them to anyone who doesn't mind wearing MAC's matte lipsticks.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks: Solow, Bumble, Tulle, Avenue, LAX, More Better 


I admit, they are very drying and do tend to accentuate the lines on my lips. However, that's not something that a good lip balm can't solve. If you are a fan of some of MAC's matte lipsticks and find yourself comfortable putting up with them, these probably wouldn't be too much of a problem. I was actually very pleasantly surprised when I first applied these on my lips because they were so smooth and buttery, which means that cleaning up was easy at least after the first few quick minutes of application. And the applicators on these ultra matte lipsticks can really help you get those precisely defined lips, so I'm a big fan!

These do not smudge nor transfer once they are dry, and as long as I'm not eating anything oily, they stay put throughout the day.

So here are some of my favorite Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Solow, Bumble, Tulle, Avenue, LAX, More Better (swatched from left to right)

For a daily makeup, Solow and Bumble are absolutely gorgeous. Solow is such a pretty, lovable shade, and Bumble is the perfect orangey-brown lipstick that isn't too dark nor brown but more coral on the lips!

Tulle is a muted rose lipstick that does appear more brownish on my lips, and More Better is a dark fuchsia color, also very wearable and sweet! 

I purchased LAX just out of curiosity because I don't own anything like that, but I'm very pleasantly surprised by how wearable it is! I honestly thought I'd look like a zombie or something. Avenue is brighter than LAX and is a sexy warm red lipstick.

Here's a picture of me wearing ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipstick in LAX. 

It does look slightly patchy, but this lipstick is very buildable and the patchiness has more to do with my lack of skill than the quality of this lipstick.

Favorite ColourPop Lippie Stix:  Lumiere, Brills, Clique, Bossy


I accumulated quite a bit of these but ended up giving most of them away. I must say that I absolutely adore the pigmentation, the variety of colors, and mostly the buttery soft application of these lippie stix.  However, there was just one thing that I could not stand--these transfer like crazy, particularly the darker lipsticks. For instance, I would put on Bossy, watch an episode or two of NCIS, and I will find myself with that red lipstick smeared all across my face to my cheeks. I am sure that whatever weird habit that I have that caused this disaster didn't cause any trouble when I had on my MAC lipsticks (although I do remember some of Wet n Wild's red lipsticks to also smear and transfer). So when using these lippie stix, particularly the darker ones, I dab them just in the middle of my lips and smudge them out.

Here are the swatches of ColourPop Lippie Stix in Lumiere, Brills, Clique, and Bossy


Lumiere is my favorite of them all, and it is a perfectly pink MLBB lipstick (even better than MAC Kinda Sexy, reviewed here). 

I've actually never worn Brills to be honest. I bought it when I had lavender-purple hair and thought it'll be awesome to match my hair color with my lips. However, I found it a bit too cool-toned for my skin. I didn't give it away because the color is just so unique and pretty. 

Clique is an amazing almost neon-orange lipstick. I worried that it might be too much, but it actually looks quite flattering on my warm skin tone and blends right in. 

Bossy is a true red lipstick. It is such a classy color, but I find this one to transfer like it's nobody's business. I would love to apply this all over my lips, but for that very reason I only use this right on the center of my lips and try to smudge it out to the best of my abilities.

  1. I love the colours of the Lippie Stix. The Lumiere looks gorgeous on you. I'm not sure the matte lipsticks would look good on my as my lips are very dry to start. Great review!
