Spell Saab


My friends, one of whom happens to be a photographer, came over yesterday and we decided to have a simple, quick shoot so I could blog about my latest lip obsession. I got a couple of new items from my favorite Instagram Shop @death_by_lipstick!!

I’d never heard of Colourpop or their Lippie Stix before seeing them on Death By Lipstick’s Instagram page. Colourpop is an L.A. based online store that makes lip shades in all colors while keeping the products affordable. When I saw this specific color swatch though, I wanted everything!! Hahaha I just ordered Brink and the sweet owner of the shop sent over 2 more stix!



I LOVE this color!!!! Brink has a matte finish, my personal favorite lip finish. I think I’ve found my new everyday lip color. It’s matte but it doesn’t really dry my lips. Still, it’s best to exfoliate and moisturize your lips especially if you like regularly wearing matte lipsticks.



All Lippie Stix, I just found out, come with Lippie Pencils. I guess Death By Lipstick didn’t have Brink’s Lippie Pencil on hand when they shipped the products to me but they did send me a Lippie Pencil of a similar color called Tootsi. The lip liner is a little darker than the rest of the lips if you want to go for that CHOLA vibe. Haha. Since the colors I mixed aren’t SUPER far off, it’s not that visible but my lips definitely became more defined and fuller with the liner. I think I’ll try to order matching Lippie Stix AND Lippie Pencils for a Kendall Jenner look. Hehehe.



Fighter is a bright red matte lipstick and y’all know how much I love red!!! I’m so happy I have all these new colors to add to my growing collection. YAY!

Unfortunately, Colourpop only ships to the States. Lucky for us, Death By Lipstick can get them to you for only Php 395 each. YES, Php 395 ONLY!!! WHAT THE HECK, DIBA?!?! And you would think it’s too good to be true but there’s even more to love about these Colourpop Lippie Stix:


They do not test any of their products on animals and this is proudly displayed on their boxes!! AWESOME!! So there, I’d like to send my thanks to Death By Lipstick for making me very happy. If you want to get your own Colourpop Stix, go ahead and send an e-mail to deathbylipsticknot@gmail.com.


P.S. What makes me unhappy is the stupid YuLin Dog Meat Festival. Please sign the petition from Change.org to stop this disgusting festival that cultivates the slaughter of our best friends. Thank you.

    My Colourpop Lippie Stix are so beat up already but I don’t mind because they’re so affordable! I have Lumiere (you have to get that, Kylie Jennerz effect) and Ellarie. I love both! I love how Brink looks good on you! I’ll consider getting that.

    Such a bargain! I asked a friend to buy it for me when she went to US. She can’t believe it’s only $5.
    I love Brink and Lumiere. <3 Brink looks really good on you. =)

    Hi Saab! I have sensitive lips but I’m hiyang to matte lipsticks that are even cheaper than Colourpop: Ever Bilena Advance Supreme lipsticks and EB (Ever Bilena) Matte! They have awesome colours. and they cost less than Php200 each kaloka! my faves are Ever Bilena Advance Supreme Twilight Red and EB Matte Mauvey and Toast of New York (this is their 90’s brown lipstick).
