Colourpop Rose Quartz and Aquamarine Crushed Crystal Lip Balm

Over the summer, Colourpop released a Crushed Crystals Collection featuring Crystal themed lip balms, liquid highlighters, and sprays. My first part is going to feature the two lip balms and then the setting spray.

On me, there is not much to swatch since the base of the balms are a very sheer pearl with a flip. Rose Quartz has a pink pearly flip and Aquamarine has a blue pearly flip. The balms are in a classic bullet and very easy to clean. Makeup stains just whipe right off. The white base will not compete with the lip color and disappear over the selected shade leaving the flip.

Three Negatives

  • not long wearing
  • not long hydrating
  • the lipstick will smear on the tube of the lip balm

The balms should have been more hydrating and longer wearing. I did not like them over liquid lipsticks because most of the color went on the tube. Over regular lip products, they work much better.

Overall, the balms are unique and an easy way to experiement with the lip topper trend.
