I actually forgot the shade I got for the genuine I ended up taking BRINK instead.
To know what's the difference between the Genuine and Fake Colourpop, check out after the jump!
Packaging - box
For below photo: Box is almost the same except for the sticker of the shade.
|Genuine box was a bit yellowish already since I got this during the first release of Colourpop Lippie Stix. They do not have the Liquid Lipsticks yet.|
PriceGenuine P350 (7 USD)
Fake P55 (1.1 USD)
It was really cheap! but beware, you'll get what you are paying for.
Fake Colourpop Lippie Stix comes with a sticker at the bottom of the box that displays the name and the finish.
Inside the boxWhen buying online, make sure it's brand new and complete with a paper inside the box containing the ingredients of different lippie stix finish. Don't forget the shade's sticker + finish which is not displayed on the front side of Fake Colourpop.
The fake's cap can easily remove that there's a possibility that it might scatter inside the bag. More force was exerted when taking off the genuine's cap. I also noticed that the FAKE's cap was too loose to fit the GENUINE'S lippie stix. It doesn't snap to close. So it means it has a bigger diameter than the genuine one.
Lippie Stix Tube - StickersSince I only got 1 genuine lippie stix right now, here's a comparison of the bottom stickers. I believe Colourpop also print in white ink. I can't tell easily in this photo sorry.
Lippie Stix Tube
Still bold prints for the lippie stix tube itself.
Lippie Stix - Bullet Stick
Should I call it bullet stick? (let me know so I can update this part what could be a better term :3).
Fake Colourpop Lippie Stix was not perfectly poured, you can still see clearly that it shows mold separation lines. Genuine Colourpop Lippie Stix is just perfect, no blemish here is visible.
Genuine smells like vanilla - chocolate, Fake smells like plastic for me.
ApplicationI bought different shades but with the same matte finish. I asked girls about the finish of their colourpop lippie stix - matte, they confirmed that it's really a CREAMY MATTE finish. Matte X which was the new formulation comes with the dry matte.
Here's a skin swatch of Fake Colourpop Brink VS Genuine Colourpop Westie. There's big difference here, just check out colourpop's shade of brink which is more on the Teracotta rose, the fake looks more of the red coral side, it also different on the tube stick :(
You can really tell that there's something in the lips when I tried the Fake Colourpop Brink.
