I’ve purchased these Vivid Pop Stick from Etude House some time back when they were having 40% store wide. These are actually in matte formula and I got the four darker brighter shades out of the colors available. I skipped the nudes and light pink and corals as I’m currently in a bright lip phase. Plus I think those colors will be a little chalky looking in matte formula.
These looks more crayon like due to the matte formula and I must say, what you see is what you get. And I love how easily I can draw my lips with these crayons lip sticks.
Here’s a swatch to show how pigmented and vivid these colors are.
And here’s a lip swatch. One thing I’ve noticed about these is that they can be a little drying and get into the lines of your lips after sometime. So it’s best to prep the lips with a balm first. And I must say they look a lot brighter in real life.
I also must say that the staying power of the vivid pop sticks are mediocre. They stay if you don’t eat or drink for up to 3-4 hours but if you do, they will be gone in no time. But if you don’t mind touching up since these are easier to bring along and apply, it should not be an issue.
Overall, I rate this a 3.5/5. But I must say I love the color payoff!
The vivid pop sticks are retailing at $14.90 if I’m not wrong.
Hope this helps.
