ColourPop recently released a super limited edition (restocked!), newly formulated Lippie Stix ahead of Valentine’s Day called Trust Me. I must admit, it was a very impulsive buy. I mean, I have more red lipstick than I can get through, but I wanted this because I wanted to try the new satin matte formula. I also impulsively bought the liner that was suggested along with it, Bossy.

As you can see, it’s quite red! A very true red, in fact. It goes on semi-opaque but can be built to be opaque.
Compared to their matte lippies, these are definitely more comfortable on the lips. However, I think it could use some additional tweaking. My lips are just always dry and I have to use lip chap. For me, applying this without lip balm was a mistake; it really emphasizes lines and dryness in the lips and took my excitement about the lippie stix from holy beautiful velvet lips, Batman to meh… it’s ok. So if you want beautiful velvet lips Robin exclaims to Batman about, use lip balm before you use this if your lips are dry.
