Christmas Lip Color Gifts

I’ve made many mentions of my love of lip colors. On the blog, on Instagram, to random people at Sephora…… it’s definitely an addiction. But luckily, I don’t have to go through it alone. My sisters were nice enough to feed my lip color addiction for Christmas!

Full disclosure; I totally told my sister Theresa (go follow her on Instagram because she’s a makeup BADASS!) exactly which colors I wanted. Y’all know I am a HUGE ColourPop fan, and they had 2 sets that I was totally in love with. Soooo I sent her the links and was like, IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING WHAT I WOULD LIKE FOR CHRISTMAS. So she and my older sister Michelle totally came through with the sets and a couple of highlighters!! How freaking awesome are they??

I didn’t even wait to put on my makeup (or brush my hair). I tried all of them out that day!

Christmas Lip Colors

The first three colors are from the bundle, Can You Knot.

Lip Color - Sookie_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip – Sookie

I am generally not a fan of glossy lip colors. They tend to be sticky, and they have zero staying power. But I’m willing to try and make it work with this gorgeous plum color! Plus, my hair is too short to get caught in my lip color, so no worries there.

Lip Color - Hutch_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip – Hutch

I’m not going to lie; I am struggling with this color. It doesn’t seem to matter what brand/formula I use. I’m just not having good luck with really dark colors. They always get weirdly flaky and patchy on my lips. I’m going to keep trying though. I love this dark violet color, and I think I can make it work with the right primer and exfoliator!

Lip Color - Notion_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip – Notion

This color is EVERYTHING. It’s dark without being too dark, it’s berry without being too bright, and it’s matte without making my lips look like concrete at the end of the day. This one is in regular rotation!

The next three colors are from the bundle, Out and About.

Lip Color - Viper_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip – Viper

Another color that is already in regular rotation! Even though this isn’t billed as a nude, it’s definitely a MLBB (My Lips But Better) color for me. My lips are pretty pink on their own, so a good rose color really brings that out and looks natural but still stands out. Perfect for everyday wear!

Lip Color - Baracuda_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip – Baracuda

I’ve worn this color out exactly three times, and every single time, someone has asked me, “What lipstick are you wearing?” So I take that as a very good sign! Because it’s a satin lip color, it doesn’t have the drying down, staying power of a matte lip color. But I wore it an entire day through two bottles of water, a cup of coffee, and lunch, and only touched it up once. Very comfortable to wear, and very bright and pretty!

Lip Color - Time Square_ColourPop

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip – Times Square

I’m bummed that my face gave away my initial impression of this color. I’m generally not a nudes person; don’t like them being sent to my phone, and I don’t like them on my lips LOL. But I’m coming around! I found that if I do some fun eye makeup, and play up my cheek bones, I can definitely rock a nude lip. I’m glad I kept trying this one with different looks, because it’s definitely worth it!

So those are the latest additions to my lip collection! I wish I could say that I haven’t added any more colors, but I just got a really cool Urban Decay Vice Lipstick sample today and I’m already in love. Can someone please come do an intervention? Or better yet, take some of these colors off my hands? I am out of storage space, and I can only hold off on buying new colors for so long……

What’s your all-time favorite lip color and/or brand? Let me know in the comments or on the internet!

I love the internet! Do you love the internet? Well, be sure to stalk me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat (@slavetofashion1) for more mayhem and foolishness!

    I’m currently obsessed with e.l.f. matte in Praline! 🙂

  • You have great lips! I didn’t wear lip color for the longest time because I have such thin, little lips. But, I’m learning to rock what I’ve got, and now I wear lipstick everyday! I also prefer matte products because the glossy just doesn’t stay put! I’m surprised that my favorite here is the Times Square! I know the struggle of getting into your own head about which colors look good on you, and I can see why a nude might be intimidating. But I think you’re rocking it! And I agree that trying a bold eye or maybe even a strong contour will help balance things out.
