”This is such a beautiful purple. The formula is so creamy and doesn’t accentuate any dryness. It’s not too in your face, which I like. I’m fair with neutral undertones.”

”Here is the deal. I am an orange lipstick gal and I always stayed away from purple lipstick. It looked amazing on other people but I imaged that it would look horrible on me. And I still think that. BUT BUT BUT!! THIS LIPSTICK IS AMAZING. It is wearable. I watched Shanxoxo’s youtube video and I thought it would be more muted but it isn’t. It is pretty much what it looks like in the picture but doesn’t have pink tones in it. It is an amazing purple and hey, it is cheap!! I am very impressed even though I thought it would be muted.”

This is my third item from the MatteX line; since I lean on towards their Ultra Matte. First got Topless, from Colourpop's website, which is a very beautiful tangerine pastel orange but definitely very disappointing when applied on the lips since it is very patchy and chalky. Then Tickler, which I'll have a separate review. I'm a bit hesitant to try Backup because of Topless' application, but lucky that I had the courage to try another MatteX and finally bought one here. The color is an amazingly gorgeous plum and the application is very smooth and creamy. It stayed on for more than 8 hours (and I don't know for how much longer since I have to remove it before I go to bed) and didn't budge even after eating McSpicy Chicken Burger! So in love with this!over 3 years ago
It's my first time to try Colourpop's lippie stix and I am just blown away. The creaminess of the formula makes it feel like I'm rubbing butter on my lips. The colour pay off is equally amazing. I can't believe I waited too long to purchase one!! I super get the hype now. I am obsessed.over 3 years ago
