The Big Box of Lippie Pencils 

Short Summary of the Product

ColourPop is a brand to be obsessed with. When a shopper is in need of a pop of color in their life or a bold makeup choice, ColourPop is a go-to. They are a really cute and creative company that is all about being bold and beautiful. Their aesthetic is fun and they are here for a good time. From their titles to their packaging, ColourPop delivers on fun makeup that is durable for any moment. Their lip liners are incredible, because they really define the lip line and are fun to use for every occasion. With the Big Box Of Lippie Pencils, there is an excited feeling to choose a bold lip look. Whether an individual needs a boss tone for a work meeting or a bold purple for a unique night out, fun and beautiful lip looks are a ColourPop specialty.

First Impression (Packaging, Volume, Design etc.)

ColourPop is so creative and cute with their packaging, their boxes always have adorable designs and really cater to the overall experience. The design of the Big Box of Lippie Pencils delivers on quality. The box that holds the lip lining pencils is so adorable and resembles a crayon box, which is so playful! The color options are personal, creative, and good for everyday life and occasions. The application of these lip liners is also so simple!

My Take (What I liked or didn’t like, favorite features or overall opinion)

ColourPop’s Big Box Of Lippie Pencils is exceptional in the overall product design. From the box’s exterior, to the experience of using the products, it feels like someone really took their time with how the products should be designed for a fun beauty experience. 

Quality (How it compares to competitors? Is it worth the price?)

Compared to competitors like The Balm, Morphe, and Stilla Cosmetics, ColourPop is the most adventurous brand. The Balm has more classic products and less colorful bold options, but their price range is relatively the same- depending on the product and they are an equal sized company to ColourPop. Morphe delivers on bold colors and iconic make up kits, but they don’t have fun lip liner kits like ColourPop! Stilla Cosmetics has the least lip cosmetic options, but their site is cute and fun. Stilla cosmetics generally play it more safe and are more expensive than ColourPop, but they have really beautiful high-quality makeup options that can’t go unnoticed.  

Buy or Use Again?

100%. ColourPop is so simple to wear and purchase over and over. Their Lippie Pencils never get old, because they’re so bold. Since there are 40 shades they don’t call for immediate repurchase, but when they run out it’s a no-brainer.

Comparison to Competitor 1

Compared to The Balm, ColourPop is a more popular company and is delivered on more trending products!

Comparison to Competitor 2

Compared to Morphe, ColourPop is more popular and has better design and marketing tactics. ColourPop is also way more fun and playful for a cosmetic brand. 

Comparison to Competitor 3

Stila cosmetics was founded ten years before ColourPop and their company is more well known and popular. But for 10 less years in business, ColourPop is not far behind and way more exciting of a brand.
