Love Life

Colour Pop Love Life Matte X Lippie Stix ($6.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency felt velvety and smooth, so it skated across my lips but didn’t actually feel wet/slippery. It had opaque pigmentation delivered in one stroke, which adhered evenly to my lips. A bit of the color pulled away at my deeper lip lines but wasn’t only visible in the close-up photos and looked fine in person. The color stayed on well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.0352 oz. - $170.45 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "full-coverage" with a "super matte" finish that has a "lightweight and velvety feel." I'd agree with all of those things--most shades were opaque while a few were more semi-opaque to mostly opaque. The texture has a silicone-heavy feel to it, so it has the velvety slip that used to be more typical of face primers than lip products, but this silicone-heavy type of formula has made its way into lip products to give a more matte finish with a smoother, more velvety consistency. The consistency feels a bit denser, though it remains lightweight, and usually delivers even coverage in a single stroke that doesn't tug. The formula wears anywhere from four to eight hours on me, and it is typically neither drying nor hydrating. There's a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Parachute

Colour Pop Parachute Lippie Stix ($6.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a bright, rich coral-orange with a semi-matte finish. It had an incredibly velvety, smooth, and creamy consistency without any of the wetness of a traditional cream lipstick; it felt more like a silicone-based primer. The color applied evenly, but there was noticeable color that separated along my deeper lip lines on both my top and bottom lips. The pigmentation was opaque in one pass and was still going strong after six hours of wear, though it was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.0352 oz. - $170.45 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "full coverage" with a "long-wearing, ultra comfortable" feel. Because there are quite a few finishes in the range, some of the results depend more on the finish.

The matte finish tends to be thinner, drier, and firmer in the tube, and they can, occasionally, tug on my lips noticeably during application, but usually have good pigmentation and long wear; they range from non-drying to somewhat drying.

The Creme finish has a creamier, more emollient quality to it that has excellent pigmentation, comfortable wear, and good wear time (four to six hours); it tends to be a little hydrating but occasionally suffers from issues where product gathers in lip lines or they don't go on as evenly as they could. There's a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Parachute: Another reminder to use my tube of MAC Lady Danger a bit more often! Nothing quite like a fab orange-red during summer, is there?
