If I had to pick a favorite budget beauty brand for the year I would have to go with ColourPop, hands down. ColourPop has only been around for two years now yet they’ve already expanded their brand to include shadows, highlighters, lipsticks and more. Plus, just about everything ColourPop creates is amazing quality that won’t set you back more than $8 a pop. Now that’s what I call a win! Besides their great quality, my favorite thing about ColourPop is how they’re always creating new, innovative products that are fun, exciting and too tempting to resist. Their latest creation is the new line of Matte X Lippie Stix. They’re an ultra matte extension to the Lippie Stix lineup that features a shine free finish that’s a bit easier on the lips than the Ultra Satin Lipsticks.
