ColourPop Friends Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency was creamy and yielded a more noticeable shine than other shades in the line-up, though it somehow managed not to feel overly slippery, and eventually wore down to a mostly matte finish after two and a half hours of wear. It had a more forgiving texture, too, and seemed to fill in my lip lines and smooth them out. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and felt non-drying to me.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be 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." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

ColourPop Getty Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark blue-leaning teal with cool undertones and a cream finish. This was one of the creamier, more emollient shades in the original 24-hue range, and I was worried about the application, but it applied beautifully: even, opaque color coverage that didn’t look streaky or patchy in any way. The lipstick felt lightweight and was comfortable to wear. It wore well for six hours, left a purplish stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

Aeronaut

ColourPop Aeronaut Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, inky black with a glossy sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly across the lips. The application could have been more even overall, though it the lipstick itself glided across my lips without tugging. I would say that the texture was a bit too emollient, which may have been why it did not apply as well as other shades. It stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

Wow, Colour Pop is killing it with this line! The quality, colors, packaging, and price are great. They’re even getting the hard-to-formulate colors right! I have my eye on Getty

I’m digging Getty! And I’m getting it once CP goes live with these. Probably the best looking and we’ll formulated teal lipsticks I’ve seen!

Friends looks awfully nice, too. Very 90’s grunge feeling. Nostalgia feels for when my kids were little!

Getty is stunning! If Colourpop can do it this well for $7 than more expensive brands no longer have an excuse for not being able to pull something like this off.

Just adore the Friends shade (no suprises there!) and the best bit is that it has the same rating as Pat McGrath’s She’s So Deep but more than $30 cheaper. What’s not to love?

Really happy that Getty did well, I like it and one day I’ll buy it. It’s such a nice color, and I hope I like it on myself.

Getty look so amazing on you, Christine!! I like all 3 of these. The only regular formula black lipstick I have is KVD Nayeon and it has the gunmetal shimmer in it. So I’m thinking about trying Aeronaut.
