Climax

ColourPop Climax Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a deep, bluish-purple with strong, cool undertones and a soft matte finish. The texture was incredibly velvety and smooth, so it glided readily across my lips but delivered full color payoff that wasn’t prone to streaking or emphasizing lip texture.

It lasted well for five and a half hours, left a plummy stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time. It actually seemed more pigmented and smoother this time around!

* This shade was brought back for a limited time by ColourPop to celebrate Temptalia’s 15th anniversary.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.0352 oz. – $170.45 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage” with a “super matte” finish that has a “lightweight and velvety feel.” I’d agree with all of those things–most shades were opaque while a few were more semi-opaque to mostly opaque. The texture has a silicone-heavy feel to it, so it has the velvety slip that used to be more typical of face primers than lip products, but this silicone-heavy type of formula has made its way into lip products to give a more matte finish with a smoother, more velvety consistency. The consistency feels a bit denser, though it remains lightweight, and usually delivers even coverage in a single stroke that doesn’t tug. The formula wears anywhere from four to eight hours on me, and it is typically neither drying nor hydrating. There’s a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Let’s Play

ColourPop Let’s Play Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a rich, metallic red with cool, blue undertones and a sparkling sheen. It was metallic without getting to the point where it emphasized lip texture/imperfections. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which applied evenly and comfortably across my lips.

The texture was dense, lightly tacky but not heavy to wear, and was comfortable to wear over the six hours it went strong for as it was moisturizing. I noticed the texture of the shimmer/micro-sparkle during the initial application but not once it was on my lips.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.0352 oz. – $198.86 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “long-wearing, ultra comfortable” feel. Because there are quite a few finishes in the range, some of the results depend more on the finish.

The matte finish tends to be thinner, drier, and firmer in the tube, and they can, occasionally, tug on my lips noticeably during application, but usually have good pigmentation and long wear; they range from non-drying to somewhat drying.

The Creme finish has a creamier, more emollient quality to it that has excellent pigmentation, comfortable wear, and good wear time (four to six hours); it tends to be a little hydrating but occasionally suffers from issues where product gathers in lip lines or they don’t go on as evenly as they could. There’s a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Girl Gang

ColourPop Girl Gang Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to my lips.

The texture was slightly denser with a touch of tackiness, which I find signature of the formula, that ensured longer wear. It wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
