CLOSED: Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix | Review, Swatches & Giveaway!



Colourpop released a new collection of lippie stix. Matte X collection is claimed to be very matte and pigmented. Their matte collection isn't a true matte finish- more of a satin finish, to be honest. The Matte X collection is matte, pigmented, and comfortable on the lips. There are 15 shades within the collection which consist of nudes, pinks, bolds, and vampy colors. I picked up 6 shades because I love Colourpop's lippie stix. They retail for $5 each on Colourpop.com

I picked up Cami, Topless, Chateau, Bootie, Poppin, and Back Up. I am very happy to say that I love these lippie stix. These lippie stix apply smoothly on the lips, no dragging at all. They are very pigmented and I don't find them drying. Mind you, you do need to exfoliate your lips because the dryness can be accentuated especially with the bolder colors. Wear time is great, I can get about 4 hours of comfortable wear. I find that it has a very smooth finish on the lips.

  
Cami: Neutral mauve pink. Everyday nude shade.
Chateau: Dark burgundy red. Beautiful fall vampy shade.
Bootie: Red-orange. Very bold and looks great on most skin tones.
Topless:  Bright yellow tangerine. Applies very streaky and a tad too light. 
I wouldn't recommend this color.
Poppin': This was initially released during their anniversary sale a couple months ago. 
Back Up: Mid tone plum. One of my favorite shades. Very similar to Mac's Heroine although Heroine isn't as matte. 

Overall, I give the Matte X collection 2 thumbs up. I highly suggest you check them out. I love most of the shades with the exception of Topless- I find that it applies very streaky and its too light on me. If you do like it then maybe you'll have to pair it with a lip liner so it isn't as stark on the lips. Matte X lippie stix really lives up to its claims!

It's been a long time since I posted a giveaway so I decided to buy some shades to giveaway to you guys! So, I'm giving away 5 shades with the exception of chateau, sorry! I thought I bought it but apparently I didn't. One winner will win Cami, Bootie, Topless, Poppin, and Back Up.
