Colour Theory Pouty Pink & Flirt Alert Lipstick Reviews

Today I am going to be reviewing Colour Theory's lipsticks in the shades 'Flirt Alert' and 'Pouty Pink'. 'Pouty Pink' is a gorgeous bright pink berry colour. 'Flirt Alert' is a tomato red. 



The packaging of these lipsticks is great. The plastic tubes are thick and feel really sturdy. The lids click on firmly with no possibility of them coming lose when they are in the bottom of your handbag. I like how the tubes are completely clear so you can see the the mechanism and (obviously) the colour of the lipstick clearly.


On application 'Pouty Pink' feels really creamy and moisturising but not heavy. I have had pretty dry and chapped lips lately but this lipstick didn't dry my lips out or emphasise my flaky lips. If are afraid of a bold lip (like me) you can wear 'Pouty Pink' sheer by just swiping it over your lips. But if you want that bright berry lip you can get it easily as it is a very opaque and buildable lipstick. After two hours this still looks perfect on my lips and after three hours I was left with a stain on my lips (after eating and drinking). You could easily apply a clear gloss or balm over this after three hours to turn the stain into a glossy look. The lasting power of this lipstick is simply AMAZING!!! 


'Flirt Alert' is a very vivid matte tomato red. If you love a bold lip you will love this red. It feels different on the lips when compared to 'Pouty Pink' - slightly heavier and less creamy. After an hour the colour is still pretty vibrant. It's only when you are getting close to the 2 hour mark that you notice it starting to look visibly less vibrant. 


Both of these lipsticks are very opaque and have great lasting power. Out of the two lipsticks I personally prefer 'Pouty Pink' as it is a colour I can wear relatively sheer (I'm scared of bold lips) and the formula feels amazing on the lips but if you love a bold lip, or are thinking about trying out a bold lip, you might want to check out 'Flirt Alert' as Colour Theory lipsticks are only $6! Bargain :)

  2. Incidentally I actually saw these at my chemist tonight, never heard or seen of them, then this pops up in my reader list! I am loving the Pouty Pink (not much of a fan of Flirt Alert, but fierce colour payoff!) now I might just pop in and check it out, I know there were at least four shades in my chemist

  4. Both are pretty lip colors but I prefer flirt alert. I prefer red orange lip colors for they look great on me. I have never tried this brand because of its simple packaging but now I will consider because of the color.
