Hello everyone! Today I want to talk about my favorite lipstick of all time (a bold statement yes I know) which is Lumière by ColourPop. Part of the reason this may be my favorite is for sentimental reasons- it’s my first lipstick I ever bought. I didn’t really get into makeup until after college, and although I did wear your basic makeup before then (mascara, concealer, some eyeshadow etc.) I never wore lipstick. Ever. It always seemed very “look at me” and I am definitely someone who likes to blend in with the crowd (of course, now I feel naked if I leave with the house without something on my lips). But, when I started getting into makeup and youtube tutorials, I knew I needed a good lipstick. Because my favorite YouTuber is Kathleen Lights, and because ColourPop is so inexpensive, the first lipstick I bought was the Lumière Lippie Stix (a Kathleen Lights x ColourPop collab for those that don’t know) – and it did not disappoint me. The formula is soooo creamy, and comfortable on the lips. It is a matte finish, but because it isn’t a liquid lipstick, it’s not drying at all. This formula does fade throughout the day, but it fades in a nice way, not in a blotchy gross way. Along with the formula, the thing I love about Lumière is of course the color.
I’m pretty sure this lipstick started my love of mauve-y pink shades. It is such a pretty everyday color, that goes with so many different looks, but it is not quite a nude (at least on me). And I love that it’s not a nude. It is perfect for those days where you want a nice lipstick that pulls an outfit or makeup look together, but that isn’t *super* bold either. It has a really pretty mix of pink and light purple undertones and is just so gorgeous.
When I first got this, I’m pretty sure I wore it everyday for like 3 months. Then of course once you start to get new lipsticks you rotate through them more often, and then at some point I just hadn’t worn this one for a while. But I pulled it out a couple days ago, and fell in love with it all over again – which is actually what inspired me to write this post! The Lippie Stix are my favorite ColourPop formula and I am so excited to wear this shade all the time for Spring/Summer.
Have you tried this shade before? What do you think of it? What are your favorite Lippie Stix from ColourPop? Let me know in the comments!
