Product Review + PICS: Colour Pop Cosmetics x Its My Raye Raye Collaboration



This post is LOOONG overdue, but I digress. A few days before  the Thanksgiving holiday, I placed an order for the new lip products from YouTube star's Its My Raye Raye x Colour Pop Cosmetics collaboration. The range includes a lip pencil, Ultra Matte Lip, and a Lippie Stix. The line was very affordable totalling to just over $20 for all three products. Check below for swatches and my thoughts on these goodies.



All three products are in soft matte neutral shades that compliment various skin tones. Props to Raye for creating products that appeal to a wide range of complexions!


 I first tried the Ultra Matte Lip in StingRAYE. It is described as a cool toned mauve brown. On the website, Raye says “I want to have a shade that everyone can wear and feel confident in."





It dried to a matte finish pretty quickly and did not leave my lips feeling dry and cracked afterwards. There was only a slight tackiness after application, but nothing to write home about.


Next, was RAYEzor Lippie Stix. This one is described as a warm peachy nude and  dries to a matte finish. It has a bit more slip than StingRAYE, which makes sense that a lip liner is offered in the same shade. I also found that I did not get the same wear out of RAYEzor due to the slippage. I would say you could get 3-4 hours of wear, and less if you are eating and drinking.
