Lippie Stix in Yasmin and Dalia ($5 US for 1g)
Yasmin is a bright orange with a hint of red and Dalia is a very dark wine red. Both shades are highly pigmented, I was very impressed that a $5 lipstick could have such an intense pigmentation! The finish is semi-matte but they are creamy so they glides on the lips easily and don't feel as drying than other matte lipsticks. They last a long time on my lips (more than 6 hours) and don't bleed either!
My only complain is the texture, it does feel a bit sticky and I was kind of hoping that it would dry down to a slightly more powdery finish. I'm very picky about my lip products though so it might not bother most of you. That being said, it didn't stop me from buying more shades! ColourPop lipsticks are available in 3 finishes : Matte, Satin and Glossy. Yasmin and Dahlia are matte, but I haven't tried the other finishes yet so I can't compare them.
Oh and Dalia is very similar to MAC's limited edition lipstick in Studded Kiss (well, on me). Just sayin'...
Lippie Pencils in Yasmin and Dalia ($5 US for 1g)
As you can see, Yasmin Lippie Pencil is darker than the Lippie Stix but they are perfect together! If you want super creamy lip pencils, these are for you. They are so intensely pigmented and they are much more creamy than MAC lip pencils, the texture is similar to Illamasqua lip pencils but it feels a bit less waxy.
These pencils aren't supposed to be longlasting like MAC Pro Longwear lip pencils or MUFE Aqua Lips, if you rub your lips they will come off, but the staying power is pretty much the same than any high end lip pencils. I don't have anything else to say than : GO BUY THEM!
Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows in Lectra, Onai, Amira, Farah ($5 US for 2.1g)
These eyeshadows are creamy and wet to the touch! I have to admit that I was afraid that they would be way too creamy, but they set to a powdery finish after a few minutes. The staying power is excellent, in fact they weren't very easy to remove with my micelle solution, I prefer to use an oil based makeup remover instead.
They don't crease, smudge or flake off! They are quite easy to blend, but you still need to work fast. Oh and I almost forgot the most important point : they are highly pigmented!
