Colourpop Blotted Lips

I'm a big fan of Colourpop, so when they launched their new blotted lip range I was really curious. They reminded me of lip stains but in a lipstick format and I just had to try them. They recently had a sale on so me and my Mum placed an order and I grabbed a couple of shades I thought looked like my sort of colours because I was intrigued.


The packaging is pretty standard for Colourpop, matte white with silver font and a good 'click' when you put the lid on that means I never worry about them floating about in my handbag without the lid on.


 I picked up Lolly and Ice Cube, the names of the whole collection are adorable. These are designed to look like you've just eaten a lolipop, or have lip stain on, and the names are totally appropriate for the range.


The applicator is quite big compared to the Colourpop lippie stix, but it actually works really well. The shape of the product means that the centre of your lips gets a bit more product that the edges which really adds to the blotted look.

One swipe of Ice Cube, layers of Ice Cube, one swipe of Lolly and several swipes of Lolly.

Depending on how you want these to look, you can apply these in a single swipe or build up the colour more. I like how they look both ways but when I wear these out I tend to build the colour up more so as they wear they end up looking like the single swipe later on.

I wore Lolly out on a hen do I went on recently that involved a 3 course meal and quite a few drinks, and while it faded, it didn't need reapplying once. It faded beautifully and I was really impressed with the staying power, especially considered I had soup, pasta and ice cream and am not a tidy eater. These are only $5 each and feel so creamy and comfy on my lips, not drying at all. They aren't transfer proof but I wouldn't expect them to be.

I think these are going to be a go to look for me over the summer, especially in the day time, and I may have already ordered more to try out. What do you think of these?

Much love,

    1. You know I'm not sure if you can even buy them in any stores or if it's just their website! I would 100% have been distracted by the same haha xx
