Note to self: blog regularly. It’s taking me a little time to get back into the habit.
There are plenty of things to talk about, after all. Like Colourpop, since I’ve only talked about the eyeshadows. I also bought lipstick in my aforementioned lipstick blitz of December/January.
A lot of the Colourpop Lippie Stix shades I bought were mattes, and I’ve had varying results. In general, I would rate them mid-high. Not “wow, amaze” like Buxom, but much better than most which tend to be very drying. I found that a couple of the colors slide around a bit, which is the big drawback. But the colors are fantastic, and I have one that’s gotten a place in my regular rotation: Colourpop’s Bichette, a deep red wine matte.
I love this color. It’s a perfect winter tone, and the formula goes on smooth. I don’t know if there are slight formulation differences in colors, but I haven’t had much problem with this one straying. I suppose I should just give in and buy the lip liners that Colourpop sells if I want a really great outcome, but I’m disinclined to use liner, especially since it seems like I put my lipstick on in a rush at red lights during my morning commute.
Bichette (like all the Lippie Stix) costs $5 at colourpop.com.
