COLOURPOP Vixen Lippie Stix Set | Holiday 2015


ColourPop Vixen Lippie Stix Set (6 x 0.0352 oz.) retails for $30 USD and contains six limited edition Lippie Stix shades that are exclusive to the set.

Ruffle is described as a mid toned warm terracotta, matte finish. [LE]
Last Call is described as a soft cool toned mauve pink, creme finish. [LE]
Night Owl is described as a vivid cool toned hot pink, creme finish. [LE]
Plastics is described as a deep red violet, matte finish. [LE]
54 is described as a red wine burgundy sprinkled w/ red and hot pink glitter, pearlized finish. [LE]
Jingle is described as a true blood red, matte finish. [LE]
"All of our Lippie Stix formulas contain Vitamin E, Mango, Avacado & Shea Butter for added comfort & moisture - cuz we're cool like that. None of our Lippie formulas contain any nasty ingredients like Parabens of Sulfates. Glossy finish provides medium-full coverage, packed with moisture, feels extra creamy and buttery with a glossy finish.   Satin finish provides full coverage, long wearing, glides on smoothly witha  hydrating feel and has a modern satin finish.   Matte finish provides full coverage, superrr long wearing, ultra-comfortable and seriously loaded with pigment in a matte finish.   Hyper Glossy Finish provides full coverage and literally melts onto the lips, feels ultra creamy, super moisturizing with a glossy finish.   Pearlized Finish provides a medium to full coverage with highly reflective pearls that give a pearlized finish."
The packaging is their signature white pen-style tube with a color-coded section on the bottom, as well as everything under the cap, to easily identify the shade. They have a vanilla scent that can be noticed on initial application, but it does fade throughout wear.


Ruffle is a medium-dark, muted brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and fully opaque. It had a creamy texture that glided-on easily and felt comfortable throughout wear. Ruffle wore well for +6 hours before fading. (5/5)
* ColourPop Mosh Pit (LE) was lighter, more rose.  MAC Whirl was more grey, muted.

Last Call is a light-medium, muted pink with cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and opaque. Again, it had a creamy consistency that was comfortable, but I felt the product didn't sit well on drier areas of the lips, causing my natural lip pigmentation to show through in those areas. Last Call lasted +5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* MAC Pink Plaid was brighter, more pink.  MAC Please Me was warmer.  Too Faced Melted Peony was brighter, more pink.

Night Owl is a medium-dark, brightened fuchsia with cool undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had nice, opaque pigmentation. The creamy, glossy finish created a bit of slip on the lips, but not enough to cause the color to feather or bleed. Night Owl lasted +6 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* MAC Flat Out Fabulous was darker, more purple.  Sephora Collection Music Is Magic (LE) was brighter, matte.  Too Faced Melted Jelly Donut was similar, warmer.

Plastics is a medium-dark, berry plum with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. This shade had a drier texture which lightly tugged at lips during application. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but looked more sheer in some areas. The unevenness was more visible on a close inspection, but you may want to pair a lip liner underneath. Plastics lasted +5 hours and left behind a stain. (4/5)
* MAC Instigator was darker, muted.

54 is a medium-dark, ruby red with magenta sparkle, cool undertones and a pearl finish. Again, this shade had a drier consistency that dragged on lips during application, but the color payoff was opaque and even. It had a light, gritty texture due to the fine sparkle and felt drying towards the end of wear. 54 wore well for +6 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Scarlet (LE) was warmer, less opaque.  Kat Von D Wolvesmouth was cooler, more purple.  MAC Dark Side was darker, muted.

Jingle is a medium-dark, brightened red with cool undertones and a creamy, satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had opaque pigmentation. It also had a creamy texture that glided-on easily across lips and never feathered or bled throughout wear. Jingle wore well for +6 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Marc Jacobs Dashing was warmer.

Overall, the set features very fitting shades that compliment the holiday season perfectly. The finishes were comfortable to wear, longer-lasting and the mirror inside the set's box was a nice extra touch! Whether you're gifting this set, trying to brand for the first time or you're a long time fan looking to get your hands on the limited edition shades, this set is worth checking out—especially for the affordable price tag!
