Lumiere

ColourPop Lumiere Lippie Stix ($5.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was lightly tacky on my lips. The color applied evenly across my lips without tugging. It wore well for five hours with a slight amount of product that pulled into my lip lines over time. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.0352 oz. - $198.86 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.

Lumiere 2

ColourPop Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.50 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted purple with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a fluid, creamy consistency that worked best if I wiped a bit of the product off from the lip of the tube before applying or else it was almost “too pigmented.” The liquid lipstick dried down within 30 seconds to a mostly matte finish which appeared “cracked” a bit when I smiled. The color stayed on well for over six hours but was slightly drying over time.

Formula Overview

$6.50/0.11 oz. - $59.09 Per Ounce

It is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time.

Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal.

Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

The Lumiere Lippie Stix was one of the very first ColourPop products I ever bought, I think it was last year. The color is beautiful and it is comfortable to wear, even all day at Disney World.

I don’t like the packaging, though. It looks more like a felt-tipped marker than lipstick. The only other thing I don’t like is the name “Lippie Stix,” but that’s just a personal thing. The word “lippie” makes me cringe. Lol

While I really love the OG Lippie Stix version of Lumiere, I won’t order it until our weather cools down quite a bit. When I bought Faded, it arrived very badly melted! Thankfully, I’ve only received 2 lipsticks ever that melted terribly during 5 years of ordering makeup online!
