ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “soft pink nude in a creme finish.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. The color was muted enough without being dark that it surprised me in its versatility–I felt like it could tone down a look or brighten a look. It had mostly opaque coverage with a very creamy, emollient texture with more slip than your average shade in the Lippie Stix range. It was very lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted, but I did notice some of the color slipped into lip lines after two to three hours of wear. The thicker, creamier texture made it easier to press my lips together to smooth the color back out while wearing it, but it was worth noting.

ColourPop Taurus Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone yellow brown in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a satin finish. It had intense, full coverage with a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully and easily. The color stayed on well for almost five hours, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time. MAC Photo (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Tabla (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Ruffle (LE, $5.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar).

ColourPop RAYEzor Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “warm peachy nude in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s almost coral-like, though it pulls browner and doesn’t have pink tones to it. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that was easy enough to apply without tugging on the lips. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Pinch (DC, $5.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). NARS Get Dirty (LE, $28.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

Lippie Stix are vanilla-scented and come in twist-up tubes. Most of the finishes are not hydrating for me, but they are usually not drying either (unsurprisingly, the more matte a shade was, the more likely it was on the drying side). Note, they’re affordable because of a lower price point, but they do contain less product than your average twist-up lip product (about 0.05 to 0.07 oz.) and even less than your standard lipstick (about 0.10 to 0.12 oz.). Depending on how you look at value, it may or may not be as compelling of a budget product (e.g. it could be a good value if you rarely finish your lipsticks or are looking to try a shade you’re unsure about).
