ColourPop Sweetener Lux Lipstick Review & Swatches

Sweetener

ColourPop Sweetener Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, magenta pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, lightweight consistency that was creamy enough not to tug but didn’t feel slippery when worn. The color applied evenly, but I felt like the finish had a tendency to accentuate my lip lines a bit, though it wasn’t noticeable due to the brightness and intensity of the color itself. It wore well for six hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

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.

While cool pinks like this don’t particularly flatter me, this one is so stinkin’ pretty that it *almost* has me tempted. But, nope, because I would need to go with something more along the lines of Sephora Lip Stories in Pineapple Express to pull it off.

I bought the JD color, the navy, and boy is that formula slippy on me. And it really seeps into lines around my mouth (and it shipped broken, twice, which was a whole other story). Is it possible that the different colors in this line are of differing quality? Because I’ve seen other positive reviews of the CP Lux line but boy, that was not at all my experience with the one I tried.
