ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks: Part II
ColourPop is on the rise and I am so happy to have found them at their peak. As you guys know, I recently tried the company’s Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and fell in love. At $6 a bottle, ColourPop’s matte lipsticks are giving competitors a run for their money. They have a wide range of colors for every skin tone, they’re long-lasting, non transferable, truly matte, and don’t require dishing out $17-$20 just for lipstick!
This time around, I ordered a mini kit of the liquid lipsticks and two of the regular bottles. In theory, the mini kits are great. You can sample multiple colors at once, or gift them to others to try, and they’re exactly $20 each for 5 colors; they also come in cute little packages. But overall, I don’t recommend getting the kits if you’re looking for the greatest value. Each mini bottle is only .9 oz, which is 1/4 of the regular 3.2 oz bottles. We’re talking $4 for .9 oz or $6 for 3.2– I mean why not buy the whole bottle, right?
This particular mini kit is called “Kitty,” and the 5 colors are:
a lighter pink, very similar to the Midi I’d previously purchased, but slightly darker
a tannish/pinkish color that looks similar to Bianca (if you watch the video below, you’ll see what I mean)
a true pink, that reminds me of bubblegum!
a gorgeous purple color, with hints of pink
a beautiful orange, that resembles the color of sunsets, desert sands, and the grand canyon
The other two colors that I purchased were Creeper and Kapow. Now, I absolutely love Creeper because it’s just what I needed. I actually have a wonderful red lipstick, Rimmel Red Lasting Finish by Kate Moss, and it even has a lovely cinnamon scent; but, it’s not matte and that’s totally what I’m all about these days. I definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of the red lips! Kapow, on the other hand, is a pretty good color, but I wasn’t as thrilled about it because it wasn’t what I initially wanted. To be honest, I intended to purchase Limbo, as I was looking for a brown color and my younger sister has it, but I ordered Kapow by mistake. It’s a purplish-grey and still very pretty, just not what I was looking for– I’d recommend that one as well.
Much like before, I liked all of the colors but I wouldn’t wear them all. Some of the colors were just too bold for me–at least for now. I’m still standing by the quality of the product and if you’re looking for a matte finish, these lipsticks will not disappoint. I will say, though, do not spill the liquid on your clothes because it’s not coming out– lesson learned!!
