Passing a hectic work week and entering a new one can be tough; But tougher is staying away from reviews of some divine makeup goodies. Today I am reviewing Colorpop Lippie Stix ‘Bossy’ from my mini Colurpop haul. I am not a red person but given Valentine day is around the corner I thought of giving this a try. I will be writing about products which I think will help getting ready for a special date on Valentine day. Hope you readers like it.
Cost: Rs 500

My Take on Colorpop Lippie Stix Bossy:
Packaging: The packaging is very neat. The lipstick comes in a twist up pen with a cap which closes with a click. The details of the product is engraved on the twist up pen. Shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the pen.
Consistency: The consistency of Colorpop Lippie Stix is soft and glides pretty easily on my lips. These are not the drying matte lipsticks and has a little moisturising sheen on lips. A tissue can be dabbed or loose powder can be applied to attain that perfect matte look. The formula is hydrating but upon initial application
Pigmentation: The pigmentation of this product is more than average. However, I can easily build it with a couple of strokes.
Bossy is a classic red from the Lippie Stix range of Colorpop. This red beauty has blue undertone. Usually, I am not a red lipstick person but I will make an exception for this one. I think this is a very bridal shade and Indian skin tones will look gorgeous.
As it is not completely opaque, it shows up as cherry red on my brown lips. I have set it with a tissue and noticed that it stays easily for 5-6 hours without heavy meals.
This lipstick does not bleed and the edges of my lips are smooth with minimal smudges over the course of time. It does not fade unevenly and leaves a pinkish tint on lips while fading. Colourpop has so many shades for these lippie stix range and I wish to try them all. I think they are quiet affordable and aptly priced. I can’t wait to review the next shade which is named as Brink from this range.
This was my first order from Instagram store @beautyngloss. They have done a fabulous job with good packaging and delivery.

Poutometer : 4.5 on 5
