The Colourpop Lux Lipsticks officially re- stock tomorrow and I have my blog post ready just in time! What better way to celebrate Valentines Day than with some Red Lipstick! Red Lipstick has become a staple for me so when the Lux Lipsticks launched a couple weeks ago I grabbed the Red Bundle. A Bronze face with a Red Lip is my go to easy glam and with a $7 price tag I had to try!
“Enriched with our LUX Blend of butters, this creamy-matte, long wearing lipstick glides on the skin for intense pigmentation in shades made for every skin tone” Colourpop Website
Sold On Colourpop Website: https://colourpop.com/collections/lux-lipstick
Creamy Matte Formula
$7 / $21 for bundles (I am not seeing bundles on site now)
Lets get into the Swatches. These are just one swipe with a little extra to make my swatch look some what pretty lol I wish I was more creative with swatches but I like for the swatches to be organic to be honest. These glided on my arms and my lips like BUTTER. The only thing I am not 100% sure about is the shape of the lipstick. Because they are a bit more rounded at the top as opposed to a point like say a traditional MAC lippie or Milani I had a bit of trouble with the corners of my lips. This is NOT a deal breaker by any means.
These three shades lean towards a bit of MAC Lipsticks Lady Danger and Russian Red but still different. With so many shades and undertones and formulas out there you can never have too many Red Lippies HEHE!!!
Swatches Top To Bottom:
On Repeat: Orange Red
Get A Room: Bright Orange Red
On Display: Bright Pinky Red
Have you grabbed any of these lippies? Colourpop has been a brand I have fallen in love with and I have no plans on stopping! Here are some other products that I love!

When it comes to Nude Lips its so personal. Why? Because not everyone’s lip color is the same. We all want to achieve and have that perfect nude lip and sometimes that is not easy to find especially at an affordable price. I love to rock a red lip but there is something so classic about a nude lip especially with a smokey eye.
For my skin tone I love a nude lip that is lighter brown/pinky toned but I also love to wear a darker brown shade especially in the fall. When I posted my most loved MAC nudes a reader said to me that the colors I posted were not “nude”. I was taken back by this comment a bit because I had an array of shades. What is nude for my lip color may not work on someone with a darker skin tone than me and vice versa. Nudes are not one size fits all and thanks to Maybelline, everyone can get a perfect nude for under $10. With their new Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes they “are warmer, more sensational nudes for every skin tone. Pucker up to radiant, confident color that highlights one’s natural beauty”
Left to Right: Naked Coral, Almond Rose, Raw Chocolate, Toasted Truffle
Left to Right: Hot Sand, Purely Nude, Peach Buff, Honey Pink
These lipsticks are most certainly BPAMC approved. You know I love a fabulous drugstore find and these fit the bill! Even though these are matte they are indeed super creamy and pigmented so they are super comfortable on the lips! They do not feel dry or heavy. It almost feels like you have a lip balm on. Just like all lipsticks they do need to be reapplied but I am okay with that. Just toss it in your purse for touch ups and you are good to go!
What is your go to Nude Lip Color? I love playing with so many different shades and textures.
