T[here is no doubt that the Lip Kits are the trendiest, or rather the most “gimmicky” in the cosmetic industry right now. And it’s really impossible not to associate Kylie Jenner with it whether you like her or not since she started it. After many brands jumped on the lip kit bandwagon, ColourPop finally launched their own version last January. But is it worth buying? Continue reading this ColourPop Lip Kit review to know why.
What is it?
ColourPop Lip Kit obviously took its idea from the Kylie Lip Kits. But instead of creating new shades, they bundled up not two, but THREE products of their most popular shades to be sold together for a discounted price. You’ll save $2 by buying all three lip products together. And naturally, the three-piece set comes in an adorable triangle-shaped box. (You know, one side for each piece—genius!)
What’s Inside the ColourPop Lip Kit?
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips ($6) – This is my favorite among all the ColourPop products and one of my picks for the top ten best liquid lipsticks of 2016. If you haven’t tried this yet, I highly suggest that you do! You can read all my thoughts about this product on my ColourPop review here.
But to summarize my review, this is one of the long lasting liquid lipstick I ever tried, and highly pigmented as well. And considering the price, there’s no way you’re not going to love it.
ColourPop Lippie Stix ($5) – The unexpected favorite from this lip kit trio. You can read my Lippie Stix review here. I like the Lippie Stix because it’s faster to use yet it still lasts longer than expected. Not as long as ultra matte lips, but still longer than most lipsticks in the market.
To be honest, I wasn’t actually expecting the Lippie Stix to be included in this lip kit. Since all you need for that perfectly shaped pout is a liquid lipstick and a lip pencil. Or a lippie stix and a lip pencil. Not all three of them together. I guess the purpose of this ColourPop Lip Kit trio is that you could have an option if you want to use the liquid lipstick, or if you’re not feeling it you can instead opt for the quick and easy lippie stix.
ColourPop Lip Pencil ($5) – I have never tried ColourPop Lip Pencil prior to my purchase of the lip kit trio. I like that the tip of this lip pencil is creamy and thick enough both for lining your lips and covering the whole lips. It doesn’t also smudge so if you want to avoid your ultra matte lips and lippie stix from feathering then this is a good lip liner. The only thing I didn’t like is that I have to sharpen it. Am I the only one who hates sharpening lip pencils and eyeliners?
There is no doubt, ColourPop Lip Kit’s triangular packaging beats all other lip kits in the market. It looks fun and in one look you know what shade it is. To be honest, I really wanted to buy them because of the box design. Luckily, I had self-restraint.
Is it worth buying?
If you haven’t tried any ColourPop lip products before, then I highly suggest that you start with their trio lip kit. Because you could try all their best products and the most popular shades and save $2. But if you already have an at least one of the products and the shades available, I suggest skipping this for now until they launch a new shade.
Where to Buy?
As I mentioned before, you could only buy ColourPop products directly from their website. But they offer free international shipping which includes the Philippines. The ColourPop Lip Kit cost $12 per kit and available in eight shades, their eight best selling shades to be exact.
If you’re from the Philippines, you could check out these local stores and online re-sellers if they sell ColourPop.
