Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix

My American bestie introduced me to Colourpop when I visited New York in April. She showed me a couple of their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks in some pretty good matches for Kylie Jenner’s first 3 shades.

It’s June and summer has finally arrived. I’ve saved this post for the first sunny day just to be able to say it feeling the good vibes!! I’m currently gathering my beauty bits for Ibiza.

I just don’t like the packaging, it’s not sophisticated enough for me, I mean even Sleek’s packaging is gorgeous and that’s a high street brand! Package and design snobbery aside, around Christmas one of our presenters at work had this gorgeous palette that had various…
