ColourPop Lip Crayon/Lippie Tint Review

Hey beauties!! After posting such a large ColourPop Haul recently is it really any surprise that I have a review today? I’ve been testing out a ton of new products and one of my favourites so far has been the ColourPop Lippie Tint lip crayons. These products were originally called “Lippie Tints”… now they’re just called Lip Crayons. I don’t know why ColourPop changed it but it’s certainly annoying to change a product’s name only a few weeks after release.

The Lippie Tint Lip Crayons aren’t a full lipstick nor are they a balm. They’re a buildable, creamy & hydrating middle ground that can leave you with the sheerest colour or be built up the the same pigmentation as a lipstick. I’m currently obsessed with these lipstick-balm hybrids and I can’t wait to tell you why!

ColourPop Lip Crayons Review

ColourPop Lip Crayon Review

When all you need is just a tint. This comfy, hydrating lip tint adds the perfect sheer wash of colour to create healthy, glowy lips — ColourPop

ColourPop’s Lip Crayons are currently available in 12 shades. Each individual Lippie Tint/Lip Crayon retails for $7USD and contains 2.1g of product. To compare with CP’s other lip products their Lippie Stix typically contain 1g of product for $6, while the Lux Lipsticks contain 3.5g of product for $7.50.

Lux Lipsticks are the best value for your money but the formula is very different from the Lippie Tints.

The Lip Crayon Formula contains Passion Fruit Oil, Coconut Oil, Marula Oil, and Shea Butter for hydration and claims to have a glossy finish.

Just A Tint Lippie Tint Reviews


First things first, I love to talk about packaging! The ColourPop Lip Crayons definitely borrow from the Clinique Chubby Stick idea. I’ve never used them before but I can see the similarities. I Love that the crayons are shaped with a triangular point and that they twist up. No sharpening needed!

Each Lip Crayon has a cap. If you push down on it it will click which will prevent it from falling off in your purse, makeup bag, etc. Each tube is coloured the same as the product inside.

Maui Wowie & Cherry Pickin Lippie Tints


I LOVE that ColourPop is starting to add fragrance to their products. My first high end eyeshadow palette was the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette and I was floored back then that it actually smelled like chocolate. Mmmm, chocolate…

I didn’t realize that the Lippie Tint crayons were scented when I bought them. They smell like tropical fruit! I know it’s something I’ve had before in Hawaii, I think it might be guava, or passion fruit? No matter, they smell FANTASTIC!

Even my husband came over to kiss me because he said my lips smelled so good. If that’s not high praise I don’t know what is! They’re quite fragrant, the smell lingers for about 15 minutes after applying. It’s not terribly long lasting after that point though.

*My ColourPop sense is tinglingmy prediction for 2019/2020 is that they will branch into fragrance. It seems like a logical step for them now that Sol Body is focusing on delicious smelling body oils, and ColourPop now has scented lip products. Why not? I’d wear this scent!

ColourPop Lippie Tints Maui Wowie & Cherry Pickin'


The first thing that I can confirm about the ColourPop Lip Crayons is that they are. in fact, hydrating. All those oils infused into the product help it to glide across my lips like butter. They don’t settle into lines at all either which is a huge bonus.

I was expecting a finish similar to the Clinique Almost Lipstick, which is essentially a tinted balm. I was not expecting how buildable the pigment of the Lippie Tints would be!  The swatches on ColourPop made them look much more sheer than a regular lipstick but you can honestly build these up to the pigment of a lippie stix or lux lipstick. The finish will be softer, but the pigment is there.

ColourPop Maui Wowie Lippie Tints

ColourPop says the lippie tints have a glossy finish but I disagree. The finish is soft and creamy but doesn’t cross over into lip gloss territory.

Maui Wowie is exceptionally pigmented, but I never feel like I need a mirror to apply it. I just swipe it on once or twice and rub my lips together. Bam, pink lips! The color doesn’t bleed or feather and the formula is super comfortable all day.

Wear Time

Maui Wowie is super long wearing on me for a balm type product. It actually faintly stains my lips pink, so as the lippie tint fades I’m still left with color on my lips. This is a shade that I would wear out for drinks, or to a luau! I generally start to notice fading around the 3 or 4 hour mark but because of the stain it leaves behind I don’t need to reapply until around the 5 or 6 hour mark.

Cherry Pickin’ has a much quicker and natural fade to it. It’s still beautifully pigmented but it does wear away with a bit of food & drink and needs to be reapplied. If I’m not eating or drinking I get about 3 hours wear out of this one. Since I don’t need a mirror I reapply if my lips start feeling dry. Cherry Pickin’ has been living in my purse and my front pocket since the day I got it. It’s one of my favourite nude lip colors right now!

Have you tried the ColourPop Lippie Tint lip crayons?

Normally I would share a pros and cons list but there is literally nothing wrong with this product. I love the packaging, the scent, the shade selection, and the formula. I’ve got nothing for cons. Now I need to collect all the shades!

I hope you found my ColourPop Lippie Tint Review helpful. Thanks for reading! x

      I’m so glad you guys liked my review! If you try them please let me know what you think. I hope you’ll both love them as much as I do!

    Wow, these sound so up my alley! I love that they can be as sheer or as pigmented as you want! They sound so super easy to apply & the fact that they moisturize your lips at the same time is such a plus. I do see a bit of a glossy finish, for sure, in your photo but for me, that’s another plus. The bestbest part though is that it stains your lips!! I am so into that ‘just sucked a popsicle’ look & not having to reapply at all. 🙂

    P.S. SO cute how your hubs wanted a kiss because of the sweet scent. Boyfriend hates when I have anything on my lips LOL he calls me “sticky lips” 🤣

      I love them! I love the popsicle lip look too, it’s especially nice with the bright pink lippie 😊 They’re definitely moisturising too, I don’t need to wear a balm underneath.

      Haha yes I was surprised too! Normally he’ll avoid kissing me with lipstick on 😂 and that’s so funny he calls you sticky lips 🤣

    This is a great review and I totally agree, these are amazing and there really aren’t any cons.

    • August 31, 2019 / 8:12 pm

      I’m glad you like them too!

    I’m loving the oils then formula has! Passion fruit? Uhm yes please!
    Too bad they cant be sharpened. Honestly every time I’ve gotten these mechanical ones the product itself ends up falling out. I’ve had better luck with ones that need to be sharpened though one from CP did the same thing. Anyway…
    The shades you picked are beautiful and definitely look pigmented. Love that they’re hydrating I would love to try them. Great review!

      Passion fruit smells so good too! I’m not sure if it’s what I’m smelling in these lippie tints but I love the scent.
      So far mine haven’t fallen out but I did notice they got a little soft when it was above 25 degrees (celcius) so they could be prone to breaking. I guess it’s the price we have to pay for such a creamy formula.
      I think I’ll probably pick up some of the peachy shades too eventually!

      • August 30, 2019 / 8:02 am

        Awh that’s too bad! You cant really control the environment as much so it will suck if they actually break.

  5. August 24, 2019 / 10:10 pm

    These sound totally awesome! I love how they are so buildable!

    • August 26, 2019 / 6:52 pm

      I was so impressed! They weren’t what I was expecting but in a good way 🙂

  6. August 24, 2019 / 7:21 am

    Wonderful review!! you are definitely encouraging me to buy myself some lip crayons!! The way you describe the formula is definitely what I am looking for!!

    • August 26, 2019 / 6:48 pm

      The formula is so great! I need all the shades 😊 Thanks for reading! x

  7. August 23, 2019 / 9:34 pm

    Maui Wowie is such a pretty colour and cute name! These would be great to keep in your handbag when you need to apply something in a hurry. I can only imagine how good these must smell 🙂

    • August 24, 2019 / 1:31 am

      Those are my thoughts exactly! I’ve had one with at all times since they arrived 🙂
      The smell is amaaazing!
