Here we are again, talking about another hyped up product by Colourpop. I am happy to say that I am actually OVER THE MOON pleased at this product. If you didn’t know, Colourpop is a cruelty free brand that originated in LA. A lot of their products are also vegan, in exception of a few.
Here is the 411on the Lippie Stixs:
Colour Pay Off & Lasting Power
AMAZING! Super pigmented lip products that stick to the lips and last for a very long time. I can eat, drink and sleep in these things and they are still hanging on there for dear life by the end of it all. Although the Lippie Stix do transfer, they don’t slide of the lips, therefore I am not scared that I’m going to end up smearing them all over my mouth.
I am the first to admit that these products are not the most moisturising on the market. They can dry out your lips. To combat this I always apply a non greasy lip balmfirst and then the Lippie Stix on top. If you do have naturally dry lips I would recommend exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub, moisturising with a lip balm and then applying your Lippie.
Colours and Swatches

Would I Repurchase?
YES YES YES! They also seem to have finally introduced a set price for shipping Australia… YIPPEE! $25.
I used to hear about these lip creams all the time through watching YouTube and always wanted to give them a go. They had great reviews, and of course they are cruelty free… so I thought I would give them a go!
The description on the NYX website is quite accurate:
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite. – (NYX Website)
Colours purchased:Prague, Ibiza & Istanbul
Istanbul: Described on website as ‘clean pink’
Prague: Described on website as ‘matte merlot’
Ibiza: Described on website as ‘matte deep rose pink’– personally I feel like this colour comes of more coral then pink.

Swatches with no lip liner.
Texture:The Matte Lip Creams have a mouse like texture that is light and fluffy. They are a matte texture, v the title state, and are quite comfortable to wear.
Lasting Power: I apply this at 6:30am and it is still on my lips at 2pm. The comfortability of the lip cream wears off as time goes on, but I feel as though that is expected of a matte lip product. Although I say the comfortability wears off, it is definitely very comfortable for the first 4-5 hours of wear.
Pigmentation:SUPER pigmented. I only need one layer of the product in relation to pigmentation purposes. The colours I have tried go on smooth and even.
Scent: It is very sweet, quite enjoyable… I dig it!
I would recommend this product!
Rating – 8/10
*PLEASE NOTE – I have just found out that NYX was bought out by Loreal. Therefore, the brand NYX is registered as cruelty free HOWEVER Loreal still sells to China.
