On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!
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!
