Colourpop Lippie Stix in Luau

The weather is finally heating up in Vancouver, so now feels around the right time to post about bright, summery lipstick! I placed a Colourpop order a long, long time ago to check out what all the buzz was about, and limited myself to buying just 3 Lippie Stix and 3 Lippie Pencils, one of which was Luau Lippie Stix. This true orange shade in Colourpop's hyper glossy finish was intended to be the replacement for Androgyne, the true orange OCC Lip Tar Stained Gloss that I kinda loved but ultimately returned because of the low coverage and patchiness.

Surprisingly, I peeked out of my comfort zone to pick up some non-berry/purply shades: Lumiere, a matte mauve, and Toucan, a matte, bright red coral.

Luau is the truest orange in my collection--everything else I own has a little bit of coral/pink in it, including Annabelle Orange Pop. I was pleased to see that the pigmentation and coverage was much better than OCC Androgyne. The bluish tones in my lips tone down the bright orange a little, making it slightly more muted than I think it would be on an average person. But you can see it's still quite bright in the photo below:

I do love my mattes and semi-mattes but this super glossy finish on Luau is so pretty! If possible, it's even brighter and shinier in person.

On my chronically-dry lips, it's neither moisturizing or drying. I wore this on a day when my lips were pretty dry, without prepping first (!!), and it didn't emphasize the appearance of dryness or worsen it. (Side note: was later complimented by two different women on it. Bf's reaction was less enthusiastic >__>)

Overall I'm happy I went with something other than my usual berry shades! The coverage was good enough to even out my discoloured lips, and it wore well over 7-8 hours with drinking and snacking. Considering that Lippie Stix are priced at a super-affordable price $5 per Lippie Stix, the value is so good - it's so tempting to buy more!

Hopefully I'll get around to swatching the other shades I purchased, because they are just as lovely as Luau. Have you tried any lip products from Colourpop yet?
