COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix is so far the BEST matte lip formula that I have tried! The Matte X range includes a selection of 16 colors ranging from the palest nudes to an unique blue.

At the moment I have 13 shades from the Matte X Lippie Stix range and today I am sharing with you full swatches of the lip products, as well as my thoughts on them and how these performs on me.

 Matte X COLOR SELECTION 

As mentioned there is a total of 16 shades available from the COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix collection; and currently I own the following 13 shades - Poppin' (medium-dark pink), Climax (intense blue violet), Chateau (deep wine red), Back Up (mid-tone plum), Tickler (vibrant neon pink), Barely There (neon warm-toned coral), Boa (pastel pinky lilac), Bootie (orange red), Trust Me (vivid true red), Topless (bright yellow tangerine), Cami (neutral mauve pink), Pillow Talk (mid-tone greyish beige) and She Bad (nude beige).

The 3 other shades that I am missing from this collection is - Hollywood Blvd (yellow toned brown), Jenneration X (bright true orange with a hint of red) and Love Life (brownish brick red). All three shades were unavailable when I did my order, they are also one of the most popular shades from this collection, therefore, I haven't been able to get my hands on.

From the color selection shown of the ones that I have, the collection seems to contains too many reds, oranges and pinks; and the colors are either too bright and neon, or too pastel and not wearable, OR too dark and not suitable for everyday wear. Although there is one nude shade, I don't find it too wearable as the color is not suitable for every skin tone. I find that She Bad (the nude shade) is too pale on my NC25 skin tone and when wearing the lip color, it looks as if I was wearing concealer.

I find that Cami (mauve pink) is the most wearable shade from this collection, it is also one of my absolute favourite (other shades I love are Pillow Talk and Climax) from the COLOURPOP Matte X collection. If you are a fan of MAC Soar Lip Pencil, I bet you will love Cami too, as both shades are almost identical and they goes perfectly together.

 Matte X TEXTURE & FORMULA 

COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix is very pigmented and it has a smooth and creamy texture that glides on the lips beautifully and effortlessly, the Matte X formula is comfortable to wear and it feels very lightweight. The creamy texture melts into my lips as I applied and most of the colours applied evenly with an exception of Climax that applies patchy and Topless that applies streaky.

Matte X formula is easily removed with a makeup wipe, most of the reds and pinks stains after removable, but the colours fades after an hour or two. I love that three of my favourite shades: Cami, Pillow Talk and Climax doesn't stain at all and they were easily removed without dragging and pulling my lips.

I love that the COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix range are all matte finish, but non of them were drying during wear, neither hydrating, but each and every single colour is super comfortable to wear.


 Matte X SCENT 

I haven't been a huge fan of COLOURPOP Lippie Stix, whatever the finish is, it is because they all have this weird playdough scent that I cannot stand; the weird scent does fades away quickly after application.

 Matte X QUALITY 

I find that the quality is already good enough for the price we pay for and I am talking based on the whole of COLOURPOP Lippie Stix range; these products are very affordable and the quality of the products are excellent, except that the texture is so creamy that the Lippie Stix melts and breaks too easily inside the tube, without exposing to the sun or dropping the products etc...

I always store my makeup in an acrylic drawers and placed them somewhere that is not exposed to the sun, nor it is too damp. When the products arrived in my hands, I always checked that they are in perfect conditions before I place in the acrylic drawer, and the next time I take out the Lippie Stix, some of the are already broken inside, or they have melted and some even flies out of the tube when I tried to open them.

Also, sometimes my COLOURPOP products comes in-complete, like some of them doesn't have a label and some of them comes in an awkward position, like as shown in the She Bad Lippie Stix photo.

 Matte X DURING WEAR 

As mentioned above, the COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix formula is very soft and cream and it wears super comfortable despite being a matte finish. Cami (mauve pink) is my absolute favourite shade from the bunch and it is also my most worn shade; I find that it feathered during wear (approximately five hours wearing point) and it smudges around the bottom lips and chin area if I eat oily food. If it was just normal drinking coffee or having a little snack, Cami only transfer a teeny tiny bit and if I re-applied during the day, my lips doesn't look cakey nor feels heavy or drying.

 Matte X PRICING 

If you aren't familiar with COLOURPOP products, all of their makeup are very affordable, but international shipping is a killer, so instead of shipping directly to New Zealand, I always have my parcel ship via YouShop.

COLOURPOP Matte X Lippie Stix is USD $5.00 each and shipping to New Zealand is USD $25.00. If using YouShop, it only cost NZD $22.00 with free shipping if purchase over USD $30.00 from COLOURPOP to YouShop warehouse. You save approximately NZD $13.00 if used YouShop.

  2. Ahhhh! She bad, Cami and Poppin' are sooo gorgeous! Your swatches and lip swatches are fabulous! Can't wait to try out my first few lippie stix from them. Nothing from the matte range though as my lips really can't take anything matte without taking 2 weeks to recover and peel!
