Can’t get enough of bright pinks this spring? Me either! That’s why I’ve got yet another hot pink lipstick to share with you this fine Pink Wednesday. ‘Cause a girl can never have too many bold pink lipsticks, right? While I still have a strong fling going on with my Urban Decay Catfight Revolution Lipstick I’ve been getting pretty close with ColourPop’s Poppin’ Matte X Lippie Stix. It was first released as a limited edition free gift back when ColourPop reached 2 million followers on Instagram. As you can imagine, Poppin’ went pretty quickly but ColourPop decided to bring it back permanently in the new Matte X Lippie Stix lineup. Of course, it no longer sports it’s poppin’ pink packaging (see what I did there? ?) but Poppin’ is still a hot pink that you’ll want to add to your collection if you’re a hardcore pink lover.
Poppin’ is a bright fuchsia pink with a flat matte finish that looks good on all complexions. The formula reminds me a lot of MAC’s Retro Mattes as there’s no shine in sight. However, I feel like Poppin’ is a bit more creamy and applies more smoothly than a MAC Retro Matte. Which is quite impressive considering it’ll only set you back $5 instead of $17. Of course, Poppin’ can get a little dry and settle into lip lines thanks to the ultra matte finish so it’s best to exfoliate and moisturize with a rich lip balm before swiping it on. Once my lips are smooth, moisturized and flake-free, Poppin’ looks simply amazing and lasts pretty long too. I’m kinda glad that ColourPop decided to bring back Poppin’ because it’s a super cute pink that’ll easily brighten up any look all spring and summer without breaking the bank. I think every pink fan needs it!
