ColourPop Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection Review

If you don’t know who Safiya Nygaard is, you’ve probably been living under a rock. All jokes aside, she’s a pretty well-known influencer. Up until a few years ago, she became popular from working for the hit media company, Buzzfeed. After building up her huge social media following, she parted ways from Buzzfeed and started her influencer career.

When she worked for Buzzfeed, a lot of the content she created and starred in had to do with all things beauty. And still, as an individual content creator, she continues to create beauty content. So it makes perfect sense why she would’ve partnered up with ColourPop Cosmetics to create her own lipstick shades!

The Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection comes in a variety of beautiful shades. ColourPop’s lipstick formulas are incredible, so this launch was definitely a success. However, at least for right now, you cannot currently find these available for purchase. Instead, look for other shades of ColourPop’s Lux Lipsticks.

Colourpop Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection Review

The ColourPop Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection is composed of 6 shades. Four of them are creme formulas that have satin finishes: Bikini Bottom, Mrs. Norris, Fred, and Berry Me. Two of them have matte finishes: Screamer and Brucie. Both finishes align with the rest of the ColourPop Lux Lipsticks.

First, let’s talk about the packaging. ColourPop has some of the best, most creative packaging, and this collection has been no different. The tube is covered with a silver chromatic look with bats. And the actual lipsticks have bats engraved on them. The packaging is what first caught my eye and sold me on these lipsticks. Plus, the caps stay on securely making them great for traveling or just throwing in your bag.

ColourPop’s lipstick formulas truly stand out from the crowd. They feel lightweight and comfortable on the lips all day long. You won’t even notice you’re wearing lipstick throughout the day.

The formula is velvety and creamy making it super easy to apply. It glides on easily and smoothly without any unevenness. This makes your lipstick look amazing in just one swipe.

Another thing that is incredible about these lipsticks is the pigmentation. Like all of ColourPop’s lip products, these lipsticks are very highly pigmented. With only one swipe, you get great pigmentation across your lips.

These lipsticks are also very long-lasting. This means they won’t wear off throughout the day. This is perfect for people with busy lives who don’t have the time to reapply their lipstick multiple times throughout the day.

ColourPop is a certified cruelty-free brand and they are almost 100% vegan but not quite there yet. So if you’re looking to shop ethically, ColourPop is a great brand to choose from. Also, ColourPop is relatively affordable, so they are great for people on a budget.

One thing to note about these lipsticks is that the matte shades are not as easy to apply as the creme ones. Also, they are not completely transfer-proof. So they may get onto other things such as coffee cups or even your teeth.

Since the Safiya Nygaard collection is not currently available for purchase, you can check out any of the other Lux Lipsticks ColourPop has to offer.

There are 6 different shades in the Safiya Nygaard collection. This shade selection, in particular, is something a lot of people have been loving. If you have all 6 shades, your lipstick collection is practically complete.

  • “Berry Me” – rosy berry shade
  • “Fred” – classic red shade
  • “Bikini Bottom” – classic nude shade
  • “Screamer” – deep red shade
  • “Mrs. Norris” – light brown beige shade

Where To Buy It

One thing to know about ColourPop is that you are much better off buying it online rather than in stores. It isn’t available in many places in stores and when you can find it, you don’t know if you’ll find what you’re looking for. So, here are the best places to buy products from ColourPop online.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the Colourpop Safiya Nygaard Lipstick Collection was a fan favorite and an excellent launch. It was a huge success for both ColourPop Cosmetics and Safiya Nygaard. But, sadly, it isn’t currently available for purchase. So try going for any of the other shades of the ColourPop Lux Lipsticks. They’ll work exactly the same – they just won’t have the Safiya Nygaard exact shades or branding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the shades in this selection look great on all skin tones?

Even though this collection only has 6 shades in it, they come in a variety of colors. They range from light to dark colors. Also, they have nudes and creative shades. This makes it easy for people to find a shade that matches their complexion and personal preferences.

What is the best dupe for this collection?

Since this collection isn’t available for purchase, our recommendation is to look for other shades in the ColourPop Lux Lipsticks. There are tons of amazing shades to choose from that’ll make it easy to find something that works best for you. Other than that, you really can’t find anything for a better price that matches the quality of ColourPop’s formulas.

What is the best way to apply lipstick?

You really don’t have to do anything special to apply these lipsticks. If you want to add something extra, you can use a lip liner to precisely outline your lips. You can also do this to overline the lips a tiny bit to make them appear slightly plumper.
