I’m back lovelies after a week of absence! If you caught my previous Colourpop haul video, I did mention that I will come up with separate reviews vis-a-vis makeup looks for the newly released Lux Lipsticks (I have ten shades in all), Double Entendre Shadow Palette and In Nude Endo Pressed Powder Highlighter. For reference, Colourpop is cruelty-free but not all their products are vegan but these particular items I bought are all vegan as indicated in their website (check out my last month’s favorites).
It’s been years since I purchased from Colourpop largely due to their shipping issues that’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I received my orders in less than a week so I guess things have dramatically changed since then. It’s easy to hoard their products like there’s an apocalypse happening because their price point is unbelievably affordable. Of course, makeups are the least priority in the name of un-dead pandemonium but you get what I mean. With makeups so cheap, it’s easy to get carried away!
Let’s start with the widely popular Lux Lipsticks. At the time of my purchase, I noticed that there were several sold-out shades so I ended up with a “blind purchase”. I am not really concerned if the available shades will suit me or not because lipstick in general (or makeup for the most part) should be fun. Each tube retails for $7 and the starry rose gold packaging (outside and in the bullet itself) is notably eye candy. The feel, finish and texture are all consistent in all ten shades except for two that smells waxy (Sitting Pretty and Lay Over). Being that I tend to get excited and then mellow down after a purchase, I challenged myself to get “creative” and wore eye makeup to work for five straight days. I am typically lipstick-tinted-moisturizer-mascara-highlighter-kinda-lady but I really want to get back to wearing eye makeup again so I took inspiration from these lipsticks. This was really my Monday-Friday FOTD from last week. I also used the pressed highlighter powder and eyeshadow palettes (as photographed above) in all five looks. Let me know which one is your favorite.
Monday: Uno Mas Lux Lipstick
Tuesday: 27 Lux Lipstick
Wednesday: Humble Pie
Thursday: Sitting Pretty
Friday: WYD Ultra Matte Lip
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Colourpop FOTD. As I write this post, they have an ongoing promo “buy for only $12 (4 shades) + free palette”. I am curating my purple eyeshadow favorites, would you like to join me?

Beautiful! I have yet to try the ColourPop lipsticks. What’s the finish on the ones you tried? I adore the rose gold packaging
Satin matte for all. Thanks Allison. You have to try at least one.
I haven’t ever ordered Colourpop after hearing nightmarish tales about int’l shipping (a friend got her order – and first grey hair – after a full three months). Sounds like things are looking up now. Those lippies all look gorgeous on you! Hope you enjoyed your week-long break.
Thanks! Yeah it looks like they have improved.
These are stunning shades! I love all of them on you! I still haven’t jumped on the ColourPop bandwagon, but probably should try a few things!
Una Mas and WYD are absolutely hands down my favorites on you! So complementary to the every day look. 🙂
I love your Colourpop look! That lipstick is quite a statement (in a great way!)
Every time I try to order the lipsticks, they are always sold out of the shades I want–so frustrating!
Yes even this time, still sold out
These are all great looks!
Uno Mas is a shade that I’d love to try. I’m glad it’s not drying on. I stopped buying their lip products since I’m not comfortable in a matte but that color could change my mind.
This is satin matte, I think you’ll like it
I need to delve back into CP! Haven’t tried any of their new stuff.
These lipsticks don’t disappoint
I like SOME of the colorpop lip products.
I also didn’t buy colour pop because of their shipping problems ages ago but I saw a palette on clearance at Sephora and grabbed it and I love it. I totally want more items now!
I lie all those lippies! They look great on you!
It all looks really nice on you!
These look great on you.
I love Lux! That is a shade I could totally rock!
That’s actually the name of the collection:-)
Lux lipstick is beautiful! I need to pick it up.
