Colourpop Blues Baby Liquid Lipsticks

I love a good liquid lipstick, and in my opinion, Colourpop's are the best. They totally beat out some of the higher end ones and are much more reasonably priced than a lot of the really popular ones. Whenever they bring out new value sets I always have to have a look and see what colour ranges they cover, and when I saw Blues Baby, I knew I had to have it.


A mix of red and brown tones, all deep and autumnal, which is so my sort of lip colour, all year round!


They come in a relatively flimsy cardboard pack. They tend to arrive a little bit bashed up, with cardboard you can't really expect them to survive the trip across the Atlantic in immaculate condition. Once I'd photographed these, I threw out the outer packaging, it's not designed to keep your lipsticks in long term, I'm fairly sure it would fall apart if I put it in the vortex that is my handbag for more than a day or so.


Top to bottom these are - 

Notion, Avenue, Play Date, Smitten and Minx. These come in limited edition black matte packaging, I like the matte tubes but they seem to attract dirt and dust as soon as they are out of their outer packaging. 


The doe foot applicator is nice and soft, and the wand is a good length. It's not too thick so you can be precise with your application.



As above, this is Notion, Avenue, Play Date, Smitten and Minx.

Notion is a classic deep red with blue tones. Avenue is a traditional bright red with blue undertones. Play Date is a lovely purple toned pink. Smitten is a deep red toned purple, and Minx is a gorgeous cool toned brown. Minx applies the most evenly, this is one dip and one layer of all of the colours. They dry within a minute and don't budge without an oil based remover. They are also transfer proof! These liquid lipsticks are my go-to product for nights out, I don't have to worry about them budging at all for hours, until that post-pub pizza!

These colours were part of a limited edition set that is no longer available, but Notion and Avenue are both still available for purchase as individual liquid lipsticks.

Much love,
