After wearing only matte liquid lipcolors, the return to traditional, creamy bullet lipstick feels kinda good actually. And the new ColourPop Lux Lipsticks are making that transition a very smooth process!
ColourPop Lux Lipstick
This range is new from ColourPop Cosmetics and the lipsticks are described as a “creamy-matte” that “glides on like butter, doesn’t feather or bleed, and lasts so long you’ll forget you’re even wearing it.” There are 24 shades in this range and I have four of them – Friends, Hello Stranger, Sitting Pretty and On Repeat.

ColourPop Lux Lipstick Review & Swatches
The ColourPop Lux Lipsticks look really pretty and very chic with their rose gold packaging and stars embossed on the actual lipstick bullet. They look much more high-end and definitely not like a $7 product but mind you, these lipsticks are actually quite heavy as in, heavier than normal lipstick bullets.
In terms of formula, ColourPop nailed it. They are very well pigmented. One swipe and you get full color payoff. They glide on the lips like butter and all the shades I have go on very well without being patchy. Athough ColourPop describes these lipsticks as ‘Creamy Matte’, they feel more like a satin formula to me. And unlike liquid lipsticks, these do not last for too long and they do transfer. But then, that’s the same with all normal, creamy lipsticks.
Like I wrote earlier, after using only liquid matte lipsticks and mostly the ColourPop Ultra Matte ones, these Lux lipsticks feel like a refreshing change. The only issue is that you have to keep on reapplying after 3-4 hours but the lips look all plumpy, creamy and they feel hydrated. For the price of $7, I won’t mind that.
