ColourPop x Raw Beauty Kristi Lux Glosses Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Glacier Lux Gloss


Wildflower

Colour Pop Wildflower Lux Gloss ($8.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light, pink-coral with barely-there pearl paired with a glossy, cream-like finish. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff in a single layer, which was slightly sheerer than typically rated (but I’ll check when the official listings go online for any modifying descriptors). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable, though I had some product sink into my lip lines. It lasted for two and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.16 oz. – $50.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “shine” with a “cushiony soft” texture that “hydrates lips.” The brand isn’t clear on how pigmented or how sheer the formula is intended to be; they instead they have the “perfect amount of colour all in one.” Based on what I can infer from promotional images, their marketing, and typical lip gloss claims (in the industry), gloss is typically sheerer coverage rather than opaque, so based on that, I will be rating on the expectation of medium coverage.

The formula has a smooth consistency that was more like a gel-cream, as it felt denser (“cushiony”) without being heavy or tacky. I didn’t feel like they were the most forgiving, though, as most shades settled into my lip lines to a small degree. The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer, which resulted in the shades looking more similar on than they looked in the tubes (the initial line-up could have been much more diverse as a result). They lasted between two and three hours and were moisturizing to wear.

There was no discernible taste, and they had a sweet, sugary scent.

Glacier

Colour Pop Glacier Lux Gloss ($8.00 for 0.16 oz.) has a translucent base–seemed slightly warm in tint but still close to clear–with flecks of pearl and larger sparkles paired with a glossy finish. The sheerness was in line with how it was described. It had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was comfortable to apply and to wear. The shimmer/sparkle dispersed evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip texture/dryness. It wore well for two and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.
