Colourpop: Lipsticks best kept secret By Meicka “J”


After watching several bloggers, I decided to see what the hype was all about with Colourpop Cosmetics. Popular for their lipstick, I ordered the matte finish liquid lipstick. I was very pleased with my order. As I continued to do more research, I discovered that these products are vegan and cruelty free while made in USA.

Colourpop hopped on the scene in 2014 on Instagram, and took social media by storm. It was the best kept secret; seeming too good to be true. Do you know how hard it is to find affordable, highly pigmented, and long-lasting lipstick? The founders are siblings John and Laura Nelson based out of Los Angeles. Products range in variation of colors. I am a fan of the ultra matte finish liquid lipstick. If you are looking for long-lasting, non color transfer I would recommend this brand. Prices range from $6.00 and up. It is rumored to be the company that repackages KYLIE brand cosmetics. These products are complexion friendly. Costs are kept low as it is manufactured in-house. The owners wanted to create a relationship between the consumer and the product. The owners report being driven by having an inclusive approach to beauty. By giving the people what they want, a fun brand was created that keeps us wanting more. There are over 40 shades available. Some shades are limited edition, so you may want to stock up! The best sellers are ultra matte liquid lipsticks although gloss and satin finish are available. Products are sold online and with select vendors.
