COLOURPOP Sundays in Silverlake Lippie Stix Set


ColourPop Sundays in Silverlake 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.

Ace is described as a light warm pink, cream finish. [LE]
Parker is described as a mid-tone warm nude, matte finish. [LE]
Chel-La is described as a mid-tone bright peachy coral, cream finish. [LE]
Thirsty is described as a cool-toned berry pink, satin finish. [LE]
Pasties is described as a bright cool-toned magenta, hyper glossy finish. [LE]
Cougar is described as a bright pinky-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.

Ace is a light-medium pink with hints of yellow, warm undertones and a creamy, satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. It had great pigmentation and the creamy finish made it comfortable to wear. Though, I found this particular shade had a thicker consistency which caused the color to lightly fall into lip lines. Ace lasted +4 hours before fading. (4/5)
* MAC Pink Plaid was darker, cooler.  Too Faced Melted Marshmallow was lighter, more pink.  Too Faced Melted Peony was darker, more pink.

Parker is a medium-dark, muted rose brown with warm undertones and a satin-matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had opaque color payoff. It glided onto lips easily without tugging or dragging, was comfortable throughout wear and never felt drying. Parker wore well for +5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Latte (LE) was warmer.  MAC Kinda Sexy was more tan.  Too Faced Melted Chihuahua was lighter, warmer.

Chel-La is a light-medium coral with hints of orange, warm undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. The creamy finish made it very easy to apply, but I felt it had the smallest amount of slip which caused the color to lightly settle into lip lines and emphasize any imperfections on the lips. Chel-La lasted +5 hours before fading. (4/5)
Tarte Coral Blossom was darker, more pink.

Thirsty is a medium-dark pink with hints of plum, cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had nice, opaque color payoff. It was the best performing shades out of the entire set as it never settled or emphasized drier areas of the lips. Thirsty wore well for +6 hours and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Mother was similar, matte.  Sephora Collection Cherry Blossom was lighter, more pink.  Too Faced Melted Fig was muted, more purple.

Pasties is a medium-dark, magenta pink with cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. It glided-on very easily due to the creamy texture, without being too creamy where the product would slide around. The color was much more pigmented and bold than expected with this type of finish. Pasties lasted +5.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Bauhau5 was darker, more fuchsia, matte.  MAC Flat Out Fabulous was darker, muted, matte.  Sephora Collection Music Is Magic (LE) was brighter, warmer, more pink.

Cougar is a medium-dark, fuchsia red with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had rich, opaque pigmentation. It glided onto lips easily without tugging or dragging, was comfortable throughout wear and never settled into lip lines. Cougar wore well for +7 hours and left behind a vivid stain. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Palomino was darker, more purple.  Kat Von D Bachelorette was more red, matte.  MAC All Fired Up was lighter, warmer.

Overall, this was a nice all around set. It features very summery feeling shades and it's a great opportunity to try out a variety of different Lippie Stix finishes. Whether you're trying the brand for the first time, expanding your lipstick collection or the shades have just caught your eye, than it will be worth checking out—especially for the affordable price tag!
