ColourPop x Hello Kitty Yummy Smoothie Lip Balm Trio

Yummy Smoothie

ColourPop Yummy Smoothie Glowing Lip Balm Trio includes three creamy lip colors with more medium coverage that had a lot of creaminess and glide. They felt more like ultra-creamy lipsticks than a like a lip balm, which can be emollient but has less substance to it. They are overly emollient, so while comfortable to apply and to wear, they don’t look that flattering on. It is the type of formula that feels better than it looks, and if you’re someone who looks more at a distance, they may be sufficient for you!

Hello Fruity

Hello Fruity is a brighter, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium color coverage with a very creamy, emollient consistency that never tugged but was a little too readily slid across my lips, so it was harder to get even edges for me. The product applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip texture. It wore well for three hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Tropic Cute

Tropic Cute is a brighter, medium coral with moderate warm undertones–not too pink, not too orange–with a creamy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which did not apply as evenly as ideal and looked streaky along the edges. I had to be careful not to press my lips together as the product moved around easily and left lines of demarcation. It lasted for two hours and had a tendency to settle into my lip lines, though it was lightly moisturizing over time.

Fun in the Sun

Fun in the Sun is a muted, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which made it closer to the marketing of the three. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and very creamy, which made it comfortable to apply but it often over-applied or glided too easily across my lips. This shade was prone to emphasizing and catching around any imperfections (even after exfoliating) and getting into my lip lines. It stayed on decently for two and a half hours but was lightly hydrating.
