My Experience with ColourPop Lippie Stix – Aquarius:
It comes in a white cardboard packaging with the shade name mentioned at the bottom. Lippie Stix comes in a sturdy white tube and it reminds me of a stick pen packaging. It’s colour coded at the bottom and helps you in identifying the shade easily. It comes in a twist-up mechanism and it shuts with a click, which makes it a travel-friendly one. Since the packaging is white in colour, it gets dirty.
“Aquarius” is described as a soft pink n*de shade. It looks n*de with brown undertones on my skin tone. This colour will look different on various skin tones. It looks beautiful when paired with a smokey eye makeup look.
Aquarius has an ultra creamy formula and it looks glossy. It applies smoothly and does not appear dry or patchy. The colour does not settle into lip lines. It feels very lightweight on my lips.
The pigmentation is good but it’s not heavily pigmented like other dark shades from the range. This Lippie Stix requires 2 to 3 swipes to cover up my heavily pigmented lips. It does not look patchy upon layering. When applied with the lip pencil, it can cover pigmentation easily. It stays on for 5+ hours and upon meals, it fades evenly.
Pros of ColourPop Lippie Stix – Aquarius:
- Extensive shade range.
- The tube is colour coded at the bottom and inside.

Cons of ColourPop Lippie Stix – Aquarius:
- This shade looks different on varied skin tones.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
