So I recently did a rather large Colour Pop order. I always take advantage when they do free international shipping and I very much went to town this month haha. I’ve actually ordered so much I’m going to split it into sound 3/4 posts! I hope you don’t mind. I purchased Colour Pop’s It’s Vintage mini size kit. It consists of 5 mini matte liquid lipsticks. I paid $18 which works out to around £14 for the mini kit. One thing I’d consider before forking out $18 dollars for it is that the lipsticks are tiny! I mean really tiny I was kind of shocked because they look a lot bigger on the website. So I’d definitely consider that before purchasing. However, a pro to them being to small is that they’re really good for carrying in your purse/handbag. I’ve tried each colour to give you an idea of what all the lipsticks colours are like and what I thought about them. I apologise beforehand for the terrible lighting in my photos! I’ve only had time to shoot in the evenings meaning I’ve had no natural light at all, so sorry!
This is a perfect everyday colour for me! It’s a pink/mauve colour which I don’t own any other like it. I was slightly worried because my skin is quite pale I wasn’t sure it was going to work but I was actually pleasantly surprised. I really loved it! I wore this out the other day I did find that it started to fade halfway through the day however. Also I don’t know if I got a bad one of this colour but it really dried my lips and it started to crack! A Colour Pop lipstick has never done this to my lips before so I was slightly confused… Let me know if this has happened to you and if it’s maybe just a bad batch?
I already owned a full size version of Tulle and I really like it. If I’m going out for the day but not anywhere fancy then this is my throw on colour. It’s more of a burgundy/mauve colour. It applies really easily and I don’t find myself needed to top this colour up throughout the day. I’d advise to maybe apply around 2 coats not the lips however.
This is hands down my favourite colour from the whole kit. I absolutely love all dark red/violet colours I always find myself reaching for them more. This one went on my lips really nicely! I was super impressed I only needed to do one coat as well. I was worried it was going to be patchy but it wasn’t at all. One thing I would say is definitely use a lip liner beforehand I didn’t and it definitely would be a lot easier to apply considering how dark it is.
When I first spotted Love Bug in the packed I was very dubious… I mean it was basically brown. I’ve never ever considered trying this sort of colour before. I was pretty certain I was going to hate it but I though ‘hey ho lets give it a go’ haha. I was sort of surprised that it actually didn’t look as bad as I thought it would. I mean there is nothing wrong with the application etc. of this lipstick! I’m just still unsure on the colour… I’m not sure I quite pull it off but let me know what you think?
Ok so it’s time to be really honest about this colour and that is that I don’t like it. It’s way to dark and not like the website described it as a ‘blackened red’… On my lips it just looks dark brown. As you’ve probably already noticed in the photo it was super patchy! You can see it quite badly. I re-applied the colour about three times and there was just a patch it wouldn’t stick to. I personally wouldn’t recommend getting this one if you were thinking about purchasing it separately but this is just my honest opinion.
Overall I wouldn’t purchase this again however I wouldn’t discourage you form purchasing it! I still stick with the fact that I love Colour Pop Matte lipsticks they are my favourite. I was happy with most of the colours in this set apart from the one. As I said before although being slightly disappointed about the size they are perfect to carry with you! I think this would make the perfect Christmas gift for any make-up lover however.
