This post is probably my favorite out of all of the ones I’m writing for this collection because I’ve become such a big fan of Colourpop’s Lux Lipsticks. I already have several of the Crème Lux Lipsticks that I wear all the time, so I was excited to see these as part of this collaboration, rather than true matte and/or liquid lipsticks. Like the rest of this collection, all three shades are versatile and wearable by anyone, plus they work with any look you can come up with using the other products in the Shayla x Colourpop collection!
I’ll get into descriptions of each lipstick in the individual reviews below, but here’s a little blurb directly from Colourpop’s website, explaining their ingredients and why these are so great for your lips:
“This full coverage lipstick is packed full of the finest pigments to give you long wearing, true color in shades made for every skin tone. This formula glides on like butter and has a creamy matte finish. Our exclusive LUX blend of Acai, Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed butters hydrate and keep your lips looking fresh AF. Natural antioxidants protect your lips from environmental stressors and premature aging.”
I must say that Colourpop’s claims are spot on. This formula is somewhere between a matte and a satin, so it gives off a more of a creamy, natural matte kinda vibe. It glides on without ever feeling dry or drying out your lips throughout the day, it wears well, and it’s highly pigmented so a little bit goes a long way. You can also layer a sheer gloss over these lipsticks if you want some extra sheen, and Neat Freak Ultra Glossy Lip, also from this collection, is a great gloss to do that with!

Also, if you want to keep up with me on Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat, my name is lesley_makeup on all three platforms. I love hearing from you guys and I always use those to give you all updates on when I’m making blog posts and what I’m testing out or loving lately!
Note: The lip photos were taken with a different camera than the other photos were, and they’re not that great tbh. My camera officially died in the middle of shooting this collection so I had to make do with what I had!
The Shayla x Colourpop Lux Lipsticks can be purchased on www.colourpop.com as a set of three for $21, or individually for $7 each. Each lipstick contains 3.5 g / 0.12 oz of product, which is a great value, especially for such a high quality lipstick. You have to consider that even a lot of cheap drug store brand lipsticks that don’t perform as well as these do can cost nearly twice as much, while even higher-end brands have lipsticks that cost nearly three times as much, but contain about the same amount of product.
Colourpop is a cruelty-free brand and all three of these lipsticks are vegan ❤
The packaging for these lipsticks matches the box for the Perception Palette and Luster Dust Loose Highlighters, featuring the matte black and purple colors with metallic rose gold accents. The lipstick tube itself is the same as Colourpop’s other Lux Lipsticks, featuring the star design that’s also on the lipstick bullets.
Without further ado, I give you the individual reviews!
C’Mon Sis is a “soft, pinky brown” with a creamy, natural matte finish. It’s a medium, rosy pink with some slightly warm, brownish undertones that make it very flattering on anyone… I mean any age, any skin tone, ANYONE can wear this lipstick! It’s great for daytime or nighttime and works well with many looks you can create using the Perception eye shadow palette from this collection.
The formula feels very creamy and glides onto the lips. Color payoff looks pretty much exactly how it does in the tube, but may pull a little warmer or cooler depending on your own skin tone. Coverage is fully opaque using very little product. I got about six hours of wear, only noticing some fading in the center of the lip after I had a meal. Other than that, it faded very evenly, so even towards the end of those six hours, I didn’t feel like I needed to scramble to touch up because my lipstick looked like a hot mess or anything like that!

Oouuuu! is described as a “warm peach”, and is a medium, warm toned, almost dreamsicle-like peachy color with a creamy, natural matte finish. I’ll be honest, I usually stay away from colors like this because I feel like it’s hard to find anything with remotely orange tones that’s flattering on my skin and doesn’t make me look sick or something, but I’m actually loving Oouuuu! It’s such a great color for summer, and if you’re not into it’s brightness, you can always use a cooler toned liner to tone it down (think MAC Stripdown or Chestnut Lip Pencils). This is wearable by all skin tones, especially when paired with a good liner, and it compliments the warmer tones in the Perception palette SO well! I actually wore this with a look I did using Strut ‘n Slay, Revenge, Culture, and Played Out and got a ton of compliments that day! Oh and I posted that look on Instagram if you want to check it out 😉
The formula for Oouuuu! (I can’t even type it without hearing Shayla say that, which makes me love this shade even more), is consistent with any other Crème Lux Lipstick, so it feels very creamy and applies well. Color payoff is great, but it can pull more yellow or more peachy/orange depending on your skin tone. That’s a good thing, though, since it makes it more versatile and kind of customized for whoever wears it. Coverage is full, but took a little more layering than the other two colors in this collection to achieve 100% opacity. It wore well for six to seven hours and faded evenly so I wasn’t in a rush to reapply it. Most of the fading occurred in the center of the lip, especially after I ate or drank something, but we all know that’s typical!

Quickie is a “peachy nude” with a creamy, natural matte finish. It’s a light to medium (depending on your skin tone), universally flattering nude with warm, peachy undertones. This is the type of nude that, for most people, needs to be worn with a liner, especially if your skin tone is in the medium dark to deep range. It’s REALLY hard for me to find a nude lipstick that I truly love and reach for all the time… The last time I fell in love with a nude was when the Dose of Colors Desi x Katy collection came out, but I think Quickie has worked it’s way into my heart alongside No Shade and More Creamer Please, which is saying a lot!
This lipstick felt very creamy and applied evenly, but as a lot of nudes tend to do, it did show the dry, chapped areas of my lips a bit, but not nearly as much as a more matte nude would. Color payoff looks pretty much the same as it does in the tube, but like the other two lipsticks in this collection, it can appear lighter/darker, or warmer/cooler depending on your own skin tone. On me, this tends to look like a little more medium and peachy than I’ve seen it look on some other people, but I’m usually pretty fair and I have a cool to neutral skin tone. Coverage is great without having to layer it much, but I did have to apply a little extra in the center of the lip… That’s also the area that it began to fade in after about four hours of wear time or a cup of coffee, but it lasted on the rest of the lip for around six hours and faded very evenly.

This post expresses my own honest opinion. I purchased these with my own money and did not receive any type of PR or compensation for this review.
