With an addiction of matte liquid lipsticks and the like, it’s hard to settle on the OG bullet lipstick. ColourPop came out with Trust Me Matte X, a lightweight OPAQUE formula of lippie stix awhile back, and then, again with Poppin Matte X, and the formula really intrigued me, so I had to try it out for myself (and yes, for you!) and let me tell you – OG bullet lipsticks may be on the comeback!
Packaged like the original Lippie Stix, the only way to differentiate the two is from the bottom where it states Matte
Starting off with Pillow Talk, this putty beige is definitely something to talk about! This shade is gorgeous and was my first experience with the Matte Xs, and as soon as I applied it to my lips, it just slipped. There were no bumps as I applied it (granted, I do exfoliate and moisturize my lips RELIGIOUSLY), but I think even if you don’t, this will slip on like butter. There is NO effort applying this formula and if you are not able to wear regular matte lipsticks, please make it a to-do to try this formula because this sits so lightly on the lips and wears SO beautifully!
Hollywood Blvd was the first one to sell out, and I’m not surprised. This gorgeous brown will have you strutting!
Bootie is a bright and lovely red-orange that is so flattering it sizzles.
ColourPop hasn’t really made a burnt orange yet, so when I saw Love Life, I was all over it! This shade is a more muted red than burnt orange, in my mind.
Poppin was released as a free gift with purchase for ColourPop’s 2 Mil! That packaging was the same color as Poppin, but you can now purchase it in its regular packaging.
Back Up is my dream violet shade. This shade is PERFECTION!
And, finally, Chateau, a gorgeous wine. This shade is AMAZING!
Again, I must say that this formula is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and I’m not just saying that. It is so lightweight and glides right on without pulling on the lips. The formula is so opaque that what you see is with one swipe. I really enjoy the shape of the lippie stix because they help you line and fill. The color range in this collection is excellent, and I’m hoping for more in this formula because they are extremely comfortable. If you avoid mattes because of their drying quality and heavy feel, then you must try this as soon as possible. These will not give you a dry feeling on your lips and they definitely won’t shrink your lips as the day goes on, and the wear time is excellent, as well!
What do you think? Will you be purchasing from the Matte X collection?
Purchased by me. All opinions are honest and my own.
