Welcome to instalment five of Super Shock Sunday. If you missed the previous posts, you can find all the blogs from this ColourPop series under the category tab labelled Super Shock Sunday on the right side of this page.
Today is going to be a Lippie Stix edition with a focus on Cake, Fancy, Rocket, I Heart This and Dazed.
I was really interested in trying some peachy/coral lip shades in the theme of my coral-toned love affair. I also wanted a few richer tones for the holidays and I was really happy with my choices here.
Cake, Fancy and Rocket are all a satin formula and I think that the main difference between satin and matte is to do with the feel on the lips and the longevity on the lips but I have to say that they don’t look that different. The satin formula is more moisturising but the wear time isn’t as good as the mattes. I also find that you do need to exfoliate before using the satin lipsticks otherwise they can gather a little in the fine lines of your lips.
The only other point to make really is that I was surprised how similar Cake and Rocket look when swatched. Cake is a softer and more pastel peach while Rocket is a pinky coral, but if I had my time again, I would probably not have purchased both as they do look similar on the lips.
I adore the matte formula from ColourPop and I find they last SO well even through eating and drinking. Whenever I wear I Heart This I get compliments, it really is a stunning shade, and Dazed has been the perfect Christmas colour.
I really enjoy these lipsticks from ColourPop – such fun colours.
Have a wonderful day!
