Okay guys, I was really sucked in by this one. I haven’t kept track of a new Mac collection for years now. I didn’t even cave and buy Kathleen Lights’ ColourPop lippie stick in Lumiere that I really liked the look of. I honestly avoid limited edition products all together because I prefer quality, consistent products without the gimicks. And if I love it, I want to be able to get it again.
Well, that all went out the window with ColourPop’s new Fall 2015 collection. It’s freaking 90’s themed, guys. I know, I know… 90’s is so “trendy” right now it’s almost disgusting but, for me, this was so nostalgic I couldn’t resist!
Plus, it was full of lip colors that scream “SARAAHH!”
(not Kylie, Sarah.)
Without further ado! Here are my picks from this collection. Imma let the eyeshadows go first – save my favorites for last 🙂
What I Think About The Shadows: All are $5 and I was less impressed with the pigmentation than I was hoping to be. Every review I’ve seen the person is so amazed by this. It wasn’t bad, but didn’t stun me. I will have to use these more and let you know!

What I Think About The Blushes: $8 and well worth it. I think you can tell that Cruel Intentions has already been well loved (although I usually love the undertones of Never Been Kissed). The mystery texture (cream?!) to powder finish formula is AMAZING. I love wearing it on very minimal makeup days for an “I’ve just been outside in the sun and/or wind” look.
I ordered a few Lippie Pencils too…
What I Think About The Pencils: Worth the price of $5 as they do their job and help keep the Lippie Stix application cleaner, but if I had to choose these or the Lippie Stix, I’d choose the Stix.
And finally… the thing that drew me in most. Lippie Stix!
And, yes, that’s 2 Contempo’s…. they sent me two by mistake instead of Oh Snap. Oh well…
Sorry, I went a bit out of order on this one (worst blogger ever, I know). In the photo above, the swatches from left to right are Grunge, Nevermind, Contempo.
What I Think About The Lippie Sticks: $5 each and definitely worth it. I want to get a few more wearable options because then I know I will wear them a ton. They are matte and slightly drying, but that’s expected and I think it makes up for it in wear time.
Final Thoughts: I will definitely be trying out more Lippie Stix in neutral shades and the obvious, unexpected standout were the Blushes which are a new daily go-to for me. The shadows and lip pencils “wow-ed” me a bit less, but to each their own. Either way, the colors are def fun and great for fall!
P.S. I snuck a couple of the Ultra Matte Lippies into my order too! They aren’t part of the fall collection, but they’re still great for fall (or anytime, they’re pretty neutral) and I wanted to sneak them in at the end here!
And that’s it. I swear.
