ColourPop Pillow Talk, Hollywood Blvd., Chateau Matte X Lippie Stix

ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix
ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix

ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a very smooth, velvety consistency that glided on effortlessly, but the texture did feel a bit thin and clingy once on. This one highlighted the natural texture of my lips slightly and would visibly pull apart when I widened my mouth or smiled. The color lasted for six hours with slightly more fading from the center of the lips. It was somewhat drying over time. Anastasia Dread (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever Neutral Beige (107) (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Café au Chic (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NYX Butter (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

ColourPop Hollywood Blvd. Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a dark brown with warm, orange tones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage paired with a creamy, smooth texture that was thin and lightweight but never dragged or tugged at the lips. It’s interesting how nice these feel going on, but they aren’t always comfortable after a few hours. This shade wore away evenly and wasn’t clingy for most of the wear, but it was drying after four hours (lasted for six and a half in total). Colour Pop Tansy (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Chateau Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but it was one of the “sheerer” shades in the range. The color went on really evenly, which is sometimes an issue with these types of colors. The color wore well for over seven hours and was somewhat drying over time. Anastasia Brandy (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Prim (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is supposed to have “full coverage” in one stroke that is “long-wearing” with “the smoothest, most velvety glide” while still retaining a “super matte finish.” The formula glides on really well, and they have a smooth, lightweight texture that feels thin and has a more powdery, matte finish on the lips. Some are really comfortable to wear for most of the time, a few are somewhat drying earlier on and may look drier or “cracked,” though the majority look good applied. They are longer-wearing; not quite as long as the Ultra Matte or Ultra Satin range but longer than the average lipstick. I found most shades that I’ve tested thus far (about half the range) to be comfortable for most of the time. The formula held up fairly well to eating and very well for drinking/sipping out of a cup or mug. As they are thin, they don’t really slide or move around on my lips, so once they do start to fade or lose color, it’s better to re-apply than try to smooth back into place. The formula has a light vanilla scent but no discernible taste. They come in the same type (and amount) as the regular Lippie Stix range, so it’s worth noting that they contain less than a standard lipstick tube at 0.035 oz. (the average tube is around 0.10 oz.).

Makeup Geek Tiki Hut, Wild West, Brownie Points, Friend Zone Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Tiki Hut Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Tiki Hut Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Tiki Hut Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, yellow tones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, finely-milled consistency that was a smidgen powdery but easy to blend out on the skin and did not look dry on the eye. The color lasted well for seven and a half hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dimmer (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Mousse (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Wild West Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with a matte finish. The consistency was really powdery, even though it was finely-milled and soft, so it tended to sheer out and have a more faded coloring applied than it did when viewed in the pan. The color started to fade noticeably after six hours on the eye. MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Red Earth (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M600 Pink Brown (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Lancome Voyage (P, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS New York (P, $25.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

Makeup Geek Brownie Points Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a muted, dark taupe with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones with a matte finish. It was very, very powdery and prone to sheering out; it was difficult to layer or build-up the color as it wouldn’t stick to itself, just dust away. This shade wore well for five and a half hours. Makeup Geek Bandwagon (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Profesh (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Maple Syrup (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Vow (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Faux Fur (P, $6.00) is more pigmented (95% similar).

Makeup Geek Friend Zone Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium, gray-taupe with cool, lavender tones and a matte finish. It was very soft and finely-milled, but it was powdery and prone to sheering out on the skin. Even over a regular primer, it doesn’t stick that well, so I would use something lightly tacky to keep it in place if you want true-to-pan color and full coverage. It wore well for seven hours. Kat Von D Smoke (Base) (P, ) is darker (90% similar). MAC Copperplate (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva Gallery (P, ) is lighter (90% similar).

Viseart Cool Matte #10 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora Violet Gray (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Tarte Energetic (LE, ) is darker (85% similar).

Smashbox Haze (P, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Makeup Geek Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is supposed to be a “highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadows. They come in a variety of finishes and shades, and the range has some winners but more than a few misses, too, so your mileage may vary from shade to shade. The formula tends to be softer and a little more powdery/dusty as they are not as firmly pressed into their pans, but they aren’t typically crumbly or so loose that they are prone to breakage. I find the more shimmery shades to be the most consistent in pigmentation, blendability, and wear, while the more neutral-hued matte shades are often finely-milled, blendable, and easy to use. The brighter pops of color, both shimmer and more matte, can run the gamut on quality. Some shades are better built-up than immediately opaque, which can suit some application styles better. The wear tends to fall between seven and eight hours as some shades are more prone to fading as a result of the dustier texture. (Note: this applies to their standard powder formula, not their Foiled line, which is a different formulation.)

ColourPop She Bad Matte X Lippie Stix
ColourPop She Bad Matte X Lippie Stix

ColourPop She Bad Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, orange-brown tones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightweight, velvety consistency that was easy to maneuver and apply across the lips. The texture seemed to emphasize the natural texture of my lips, and it appeared “cracked” slightly when I smiled or widened my mouth. The color lasted for five and a half hours and started to feel drying after four hours of wear. Maybelline Nude Embrace (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced When In Doubt (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Magic Wand (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Cami Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation with a creamy, velvety-smooth consistency that applied without tugging. The texture was less forgiving and did accentuate the natural texture of my lips, so if you have lips prone to cracking/peeling/flaking, this might be a flattering formula on. The color wore well for six hours and was lightly drying over time. Marc Jacobs Beauty Slowburn (246) (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (DC, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Cami (LE, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Tickler Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a bold, bright medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff with a very smooth, velvety texture that applied without tugging or dragging. I was surprised that the color appeared slightly “cracked” despite being a darker/brighter shade, though it was not as apparent as it was in She Bad. The color lasted for over seven hours and was lightly drying after five hours. Urban Decay Savage (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar).

As they are thin, they don’t really slide or move around on my lips, so once they do start to fade or lose color, it’s better to re-apply than try to smooth back into place. The formula has a light vanilla scent but no discernible taste. They come in the same type (and amount) as the regular Lippie Stix range, so it’s worth noting that they contain less than a standard lipstick tube at 0.035 oz. (the average tube is around 0.10 oz.).

Neat discovery: the consistent, thinner (but opaque) formula makes them very easy to blend into each other for an ombre lip effect.

ColourPop Boa Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff, but the texture “cracked” visibly on me from the get-go, even though it had seemingly good coverage and didn’t drag at all (very velvety applied). The color wore six hours with the color still remaining “cracked” but didn’t seem to work into lip lines from there. It was drying after six hours. Makeup Geek Arabesque (LE, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Pepper (DC, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Seesaw (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Koala (DC, $6.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Back Up Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, purpled plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with even, smooth coverage that applied without tugging or dragging on the lips. The color lasted for seven hours and was lightly drying. MAC Evening Rendezvous (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Dancing Flowers (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Tomboy (P, $12.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Are & Be (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Viper (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). NARS London Calling (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Makeup Geek Urbanista (P, $12.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (80% similar). Pat McGrath Antidote (LE, $38.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Climax Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a slightly muted, deep purpled-blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but it could have been richer for true, one-stroke opaque coverage. The texture felt smooth and glided on without dragging, but the thinner consistency seemed prone to emphasizing lip lines and natural texture of my lips. The color lasted for six and a half hours with slightly uneven fading overall. The biggest upside is the non-liquid format makes it easier to apply around the edges. Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Indigo-go (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Anastasia Cobalt (P, $18.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Echo (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Midnight Troll (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (80% similar).

Best ColourPop Super Shock Shadows — Top 25

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented. From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).
