Hi Lovelies -
I'm a HUGE fan of affordable, high-quality makeup products - and if it's cruelty-free, it's for me - which is why I love ColourPop! They have an amazing selection of lip colors and formulas, and have been growing rapidly to include brow, eye and face products a well! They come out with new products and develop new shades on the reg, making it easy to keep up with trends without doing too much damage to your wallet! They offer some great kits that contain several of their fabulous products to try for one low price, and it's always worth it to check out the Last Call section of their website to snag some discontinued products at a 20% off! I enjoy so many of their offerings, but my biggest addiction is their lip products - Lippie Stix, Lippie Pencils, Ultra-Matte, Ultra-Blotted, Ultra-Satin, Ultra-Metallic Liquid Lips...there is truly a lip shade and formula for everyone! I am almost always blown away by the pigmentation, high-end feel, and longevity of their lip products, and for $6 or less with free shipping over $30, you seriously can't beat the value. There are so many of their lip products that I love and reach for daily, I want to share my favorites with you. I'm going to break it down into two posts to make things easier - Lippie Stix, and then Liquid Lip colors; today, let's talk about my 5 favorite ColourPop Lippie Stix :)
Lumiere - $5
Lumiere was one of the first ColourPop products I ever bought, and it remains one of my top must-haves; it definitely sparked my addiction to ColourPop! It is a dusty mauve pink, definitely leans cool, and IMO is simply stunning! It can be worn alone for a more subtle look, or paired with the matching Lippie Pencil for a more opaque, intense mauve lip that lasts and lasts.

Cookie - $5
Cookie is described as a warm brown nude, and it is my most reached for of the five Lippie Stix. This color goes with any look, from "no-makeup makeup" to the most outrageous smoky eye. If I don't want to think about it too much, I just want things to be simple and easy, or I'm not sure what color will work best with my LOTD, I go with Cookie, and it always works.

Tootsi - $5
Tootsti is a pinky greige shade, a cooler take on Cookie. It has that gray undertone that might scare some people, but for those of you interested in trying out the trend, it is definitely user-friendly and not too over-the-top...really, it's the perfect greige shade. It also has a matching Lippie Pencil.

Grunge - $5
A mid-toned red brown, Grunge is a bit of a darker take on your everyday lip color. I must admit, I was initially drawn to the nostalgia of the name more than the color, as I was a child of the 90's and definitely lived that grunge life for awhile (Doc Martens, flannel everything, dog collars and my dad's old sweaters were my wardrobe staples - don't judge). However, when I actually put Grunge on my lips, I knew it was the perfect shade for those days when you want a little more oomph, but still want to keep with a neutral-ish hue. It is a true 90's lipcolor - matching Lippie Pencil and mini-backpack optional.

Brink - $5
This terracota rose shade is my ultimate YLBB (your lips but better) color. When I'm feeling drab or not quite up to adulting, this Lippie instantly brings life back to my face and makes me feel pulled together when I'm not. Lippie Pencil also available.
