Remember that time I told you how much I love ColourPop Cosmetics? Remember that other time I showed my current liquid lipstick collection? Well wouldn’t you know that ColourPop decided to create and release a collection of liquid lipsticks! I’ll be honest and say I was extremely hesitant to purchase these, not due to questionable quality, but because I read multiple comments/posts saying the packaging wasn’t the best and caused some spillage. However, I haven’t experienced any of that and I’m happy I took the plunge and bought them!
This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!
Since I didn’t know what to expect I stuck to my “safe” colors, a purple and a neutral. ColourPop didn’t lie when they named these “ultra matte,” they are beyond matte! This means your lips have to be exfoliated and moisturized before wearing or else you’ll look crazy with flaky lips. They dry down really quick, which I love and the color payoff is awesome, one to two swipes and you’re good to go. Unlike the lippie sticks, these do not come with an assigned lippie pencil but I’m sure you can find lip pencils to pair with them if you’d like.
Zipper is described as a “blackened purple” on the site however, I don’t see the blackened part of it. It really shows up as a blue based purple on me. Donut is described as a “bright peach.” It’s definitely peach with some brown tones in it, with a brown liner it’s amazing for this brown girl!
Regarding wear time, these last through about seven hours of drinking with straws and staying away from super oily foods. I noticed that as they wear away they get a little flaky, remember they are really dry, but it’s nothing I couldn’t handle with a mirror and some minor blotting.
The Ultra Matte Lip products retail for $6 at www.colourpop.com. If you tweet me I’ll tell you what coupon code I used too! These are a win in my book, I recently purchased a couple more and I can’t wait to get them!
