Heyy guys!!! Today’s post is going to be on new Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I’m on a whole another level of excitement to share the review and swatches with you guys!
Colourpop came up with the 25 beautiful shades fo Ultra matte lipsticks. I’ve got my hands on 5 of them and luckily they are all my kinda colors. I got this Mini Ultra matte lip kit called “FOXY”. I bought it from a friend here in Melbourne for AU$35. But each full-size lipsticks are available for $6 in the U.S.
About Colourpop Cosmetics:
“ColourPop was born, raised and made with love in the City of Angels. Founded in 2014 by Seed Beauty, we pride ourselves on being wallet friendly and bunny approved. We test our products in the nicest way possible, leaving fur babies to be fur babies and experimenting on people instead (the people at ColourPop HQ to be exact!). We like long walks on the beach, sipping margaritas, swatching Lippies in the moonlight, and… oops, got a little sidetracked! Back to business. Trends come and go, so it’s super important to us that you can keep up with this ever-changing industry without breaking the bank. You can try out the latest trends without serious commitment because our luxury formulas are priced for experimentation. They’re also, like, really pretty. We’re dedicated to creating the best possible products in every shade imaginable for our loyal ColourPoppers & ColourPopettes.”
Though it is very new Brand, Colourpop has got lot of applauds for its high-quality products for a very affordable price not putting a hole in your pockets like other luxury brands. Girls all over, are raving about these Ultra matte lip shades as their formula and consistency is very similar to the very much hyped Kylie lip kits which are far above common people’s reach!
Now that being said, let’s get into the exciting part of the post, actual review and swatches wohoooo!!! 🙂
Texture : They are liquidy as the name, but not really runny.
Now these lipsticks are a bit drying just like any other liquid lipsticks because they get stuck to your lips within few seconds of applying and go completely opaque and matte. I love that about them because you don’t have to be careful for long for them to get dry. Just apply and forget. Once they dry, you’d pretty much feel like there’s nothing on your lips but still beautifully pigmented and they stay forever. (OK not forever, but really for long hours until you remove them with an oil based makeup remover. )
AND it is completely TRANSFER-PROOF !!!
So this kit (Foxy) has 5 shades- More better, Creeper, Clueless, Beeper, Tulle. Check out the swatches of each of them.
- Creeper: It is a blue tone red shade which is a bit on the darker side of red. ( Which would btw make your teeth appear white :D). This is one of my favorite as it doesn’t look vampy but beautiful and elegant. (Not Creepy at all… :P)
2. Tulle: It’s a light brown color which comes out a bit lighter on the lips than on the swatch.
3. Clueless: This is a pretty mauve kinda pink shade. Which would look great on lighter skin tones, but for me I’m not a very big fan of such shades as I feel they don’t suit me.
4.More Better : This a pretty pink with a little mauve undertone and looks beautiful for girls with my kinda skin tone that’s medium to tan skin tone!
5.Beeper: This is a perfect nude shade. Not really my kinda color but ya if you’re more of a nude shade person. This one is for you! 🙂
Application : Since they are a bit drying, if you have very dry lips I would recommend exfoliating and moisturizing your lips with a good lip balm before applying these lipsticks. Otherwise, they might make your lips very dry and flaky.
If you have normal lips, a good lip balm or a primer underneath these lipsticks would go a long way.
Pigment : These are highly pigmented and just one swatch is all you need. Of course, if you have really pigmented lips I would suggest 2 swatches but you wouldn’t need anything more than that. I do have pigmented lips too, but I applied just one swatch and if you see my lip swatches below you would see how seamlessly opaque they look. For me personally, it says but on for 5-6 hours after which it lightens but never goes off completely bare. It leaves behind a beautiful tint on your lips which you’d never complain of 😉
Stay life: For me personally, it says but on for 7-8 hours after which it lightens but never goes off completely bare. It leaves behind a beautiful tint on your lips which you’d never complain of 😉
- Very affordable
- Very pigmented and opaque
- Long lasting
- Less is more, just one swatch is enough.
- Dries very quickly
- Not available in stores. Only online that too only in U.S.
- Takes effort removing it.( Only oil based makeup removers or oils help)
So here’s the detailed review of the much loved Colourpop ultra matte liquid lipsticks. I surely loved them. Did you get your hands on any of these or other shades from this line?
