Hey Big Spender

ColourPop Hey Big Spender Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) includes a satiny, blue-based red lipstick with a matte, very blue-based red lip pencil. When layered, the end result was more semi-matte and seemed about as cool-toned as the lipstick was on its own. Both shades were quite pigmented and long-wearing, while the lipstick was–unsurprisingly–more comfortable to wear on its own and was somewhat hydrating.

Million Dollar Baby

Million Dollar Baby is a medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and very lightweight, and the formula smoothed out some of my lip lines as well. This shade stayed on well for over six hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating while worn.

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

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.

Hot Cakes

Hot Cakes is a vivid, medium-dark red with strong, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied smoothly and precisely along the edge of my lips. For all-over application, it went on fairly evenly and didn’t tug much, but I’d recommend applying to the lower lip, gently pressing lips together (as this helps distribute the color more comfortably), and then continuing to fill in where necessary. The pencil had a waxy feel, which gave it glide without feeling emollient. It wore well for over six hours on its own, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

These are the type of red I love! Yet I’d still rather go in for MAC Ruby Woo some day soon. I have to at this point. It’s been on the old WL forever!

This is lovely. A medium blue based satin-sheeny red is my favorite red. I have PMG Major Red and Shiseido Ruby Copper to get through but this looks great.

I love the blue toned red lipsticks. I had a look at all dupes and I have six, even worse I probably have some from brands you don’t review. No more lipsticks like this for me, until I have at least finished at least one. This will probably not happen as I even replaced Ruby Woo and MAC Red earlier this year, they had started having an off smell.
Still, this is gorgeous and the formula is nice so I’ll add it to the wish list so I’ll remember it for much later.
