TOP AUTUMNAL COLOURPOP LIPSTICKS

Now that we're making our way into the fall months, it's time to share a few of my favorite autumnal Colourpop lipsticks to gear up for the upcoming months!

Does anyone else feel like their week has been a bit screw-y on them? My days are getting mixed up, so good thing I’m not in school because I just know it would have been a clusterpoop. It’s why I didn’t post on Tuesday, like I normally do, because up until I basically went to sleep, I thought it was Monday 😅

But we’re back on track with Friday’s post!

My extensive collection of Colourpop’s lipsticks (and some of their eyeshadows as well) have inspired this post. Even though it’s not quite fall and where I am is actually experiencing the end of heat wave, autumnal makeup picks and transitional skincare routines are a thing. With that in mind, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite autumnal Colourpop lipsticks!

ULTRA METALLIC IN ZEBRA

Metallic lipsticks aren’t for everyone—they run the gamut between completely unwearable and subtle enough to wear out but pretty enough to garner a few compliments.

Zebra is a shiny brownish, loosely described by me as “copper” shade. It’s metallic and not sparkly, an important distinction for those who don’t like full out sparkle on their lips and having to deal with wiping that shit off, no matter how great the makeup remover.

I love this one because despite the color screaming fall it’s such a versatile shade that can be dressed up or down, as a statement lip but also lowkey enough to be worn with anything.


CREME LIPPIE STIX IN BOYS TOWN

After grabbing a few of the creme lippie stix in my last haul, I’ve come to realize that the creme lippie stix are one of my favorite formulas the Colourpop lip range has. They are so soft and creamy, reminding me a bit of the NYX Butter lipsticks, and feel great on the lips.

Boys Town is another brown nude shade, lighter than Zebra. As you can see on my arm it swatches more of a tan beige-y color, but I’ve found on my lips it’s darker and more cool-toned.


Now that we're making our way into the fall months, it's time to share a few of my favorite autumnal Colourpop lipsticks to gear up for the upcoming months!

BLOTTED LIP IN DEJA VU

Granted, this is part of the Alexis Ren x Colourpop collab, which is still available though currently out of stock, but any of the blotted lips are perfect for that barely there stain.

Being a blotted lip, Deja Vu is a sheer but buildable light, dusty pink. If your natural lip color happens to be lighter, you’ll get color out of this one, but for those with a darker natural lip like me, this is one of those that even out the color of your natural lips for a MLBB look.

This is perfect for running about or if you want to eat and don’t want to reapply your lipstick (because hey, that requires thought). It fades naturally throughout the day whether you eat or not. Unfortunately it’s not the longest lasting formula, even on me where lipsticks tend to stay, but I think that’s kind of the whole thing behind “blotted lips”.

 


ULTRA GLOSSY LIP IN SOOKIE

Need a vampy color that isn’t drying? Glossy lips are IN.

Sookie is a beautiful deep plum shade that’s comfortable to wear and great for nights out. (And was anyone else instantly reminded of Melissa McCarthy’s lovely character on Gilmore Girls with the same name?)

Sookie is quite pigmented in and of itself, but it also works as a glossy topper for its slightly darker, matte counterpart – Colourpop’s Ultra Matte lipstick in Hutch.  


ULTRA SATIN IN CALYPSO

Seemingly one of Colourpop’s better liked formulas, the ultra satin formula in Calypso is a deeper, pinkish nude. Like most of Colourpop’s formulas, it’s pigmented, so if you want something good for everyday but still gives that pop over the other colors I mentioned, Calypso is for you.

What are your top Colourpop lipsticks?

      same, there’s something about the later months and darker lips!

  • I adore Zebra and it’s one of the rare few metallic lipsticks that actually looks good on me!

      I know, I was actually unsure about it because of how brownish it looked in the pics, but I love the way it turned out.

  • I’ve done my first order just recently, and now I’m even more excited! I picked up calypso, I was going to get the blotted lips but I wasn’t sure if it was worth it. The creme lippie stix formula sounds amazing, i did pick up two lippe stix but I’m not sure they would be the same formula? I’ll defo be trying them out too if I’m happy with my order xx

      yay, awesome! and actually I just checked to make sure, and there are four different lippie stix formulations, but even the ones I’ve tried that aren’t the creme formula I haven’t had a problem with. hope you enjoy your order!

  • Where do you live if you don’t mind me asking? I’m from New York and it definitely feels like autumn now even though it’s not officially autumn yet.

    I’ve only bought one lipstick from colourpop around two years ago and it’s called oh snap – it’s a pretty color but I think it’s too light for me haha! I haven’t tried any other colourpop lipsticks since then, though I’ve heard that their liquid lipsticks are pretty good for the price.

      I live in Southern California! actually the past two days have been a bit overcast, but still not quite “autumn”.

      oh man, I went crazy for Colourpop lipsticks when they came out, I have so many. they aren’t my favorite formulas, but they work well enough & the shade range is insane.

  • These are all so stunning! I really need Sookie in my life.

      Thank you!

  • These are great colors for Fall! I’m not a big fan of the matte lip creams by ColourPop, but I haven’t tried their others yet. That metallic one looks awesome though!

    • Sam

      Definitely try the others if you can! I know a lot of people aren’t fans of the matte formula, but the satin ones are well-liked!

  • I love all the colors.
    Definitely my color.
