LIPSTICK LOVE | ColourPop Lippie Stix in Glam Bag

Hey ladies, have you ever fell in love with a lipstick at first swipe? Can you recall the sudden rush you felt when you puckered your lips to apply that smooth, creamy color and it showed up a little something like perfection? Like the color and finish were made specially for your lips? Well ladies, that's how I felt a couple of weeks ago when I received ColourPop Lippie Stix in "Glam Bag" through my monthly Ipsy subscription.

If you are unfamiliar with Ipsy, it's a subscription service that allows you to try the latest beauty products each month for $10. And while I enjoy the products I've gotten in recent bags, I don't always receive items from brands I use in my daily beauty routine. So receiving a ColourPop product in my bag was not only surprising, it also became the highlight of my Ipsy experience this month!

Back in the spring, Ipsy collaborated with ColourPop Cosmetics to give subscribers exclusive products to be featured on the website and future Ipsy Bags. Subscribers voted for their favorite colors of Ultra Glossy Lips and Lippie Stix.  This month, Ipsy debuted the lippies, including one beautiful magenta lippie appropriately named "Glam Bag." So when I unzipped September's stylishly studded baggie and came across the ColourPop box, I was immediately hype! It was a matter of time before I put down everything else in my bag to go try this lippie on! And when I tell you it was LOVE at first swipe, I am so sincere.

So what makes this lippie feel something like perfection for my lips, you ask? What made me "fall in love at first swipe," you wonder? The first thing that I adored was the color. It's a rich shade of magenta (in the same color family of my fav-fuchsia). It's bold, bright, and vibrant, visually striking to the eyes at first glance. Now "Glam Bag" could have been just another pretty lipstick with no substance, but it passed every test I gave it.

-It's very pigmented, taking only one application to receive a fully opaque pop of color.
-It's long-lasting, sticking to your lips for as long as you will allow it to.
-It wears comfortably, without that annoying dryness that comes with most matte lipsticks.
-It's vibrant but not over the top, meaning I could rock it in the daytime or at night.

Per the ColourPop Cosmetics website, the Lippie Stix are formulated with Vitamin E, Mango, Avocado, and Shea Butter, which is probably why they feel comfortably smooth for matte lippies. None of their lippies contain harsh ingredients like parabens or sulfates, so there's another win for the Lippie Stix. And if you love beauty on a budget like the kid, you'd be delighted to know that Glam Bag only cost $5 on the ColourPop website!
ColourPop for Women of Color

I usually just share my lipstick love on Instagram these days, but after I fell in love with "Glam Bag," I knew I had to use a bigger space to tell you guys all about it. Wearing this lippie makes me feel flirty, fierce, and fun. I'd rock it anywhere and everywhere, feeling quite confident in doing so. In fact, I think it's the perfect pink for the fall season. Who would believe there was time I would shy away from wearing bright shades of lipstick like this? Ladies, if you have a beautiful, vivid shade of lipstick like this that you've been waiting to wear but are afraid to---I say put that lippie on and wear it with pride!
