Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Review

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Lipsticks

For years, I played it safe when it came to wearing lipstick. The boldest I would wear was red–and I don’t consider that very bold because everyone rocks a red lip from time to time. But lately, I’ve been adding some variety to my makeup collection and purposefully wearing more colors. I didn’t have many options on hand, so I decided to see if the company everyone was raving about would live up to the hype. The Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip liquid lipsticks and “lippie” stix were all the rave in the YouTube & Instagram communities.

The colors that I purchased are listed below, along with pictures of how they’re advertised and snapshots from my video. I also included a few selfies from when I wore the colors out. I’m pretty impressed! Most of the colors look great and offer a true matte finish– I get compliments every time I wear them. My favorite would be LAX, a burgundy that’s great for the winter months. My least favorite would have to be Midi, but I should have looked at the color more closely before purchasing it. It’s a summer color and definitely not suited for my skin tone. But as ridiculous as it looked, the longer I had it on, the more it grew on me.

, going into more detail about the colors, why I chose them and my advice on how and when to wear them. If you guys have any questions, please let me know! Or, if you’re familiar with Colourpop and their other products, let me know about those. I’m thinking of trying their lippie stix and eyeshadows. As always, stay flawlessly beautiful and live in love!

What’s Big Lots you ask? Only one of the best places ever! Sure, everyone loves places like Wal-Mart–those devils–and Sams, but have you been to Big Lots? Thanks to my mom’s smart shopping habits, I now know that they have everything from food stuffs to hair & beauty products. And at least half of the items are from great name brands. For example, several of the food items that my mom buys from Whole Foods can also be found at Big Lots; beauty brands like CoverGirl, Maybelline, L’Oreal, & Neutrogena are all at the big BL; and everything else like household cleaning items, furniture & home decorations, and kids toys or schools supplies. Whaaaa? I know, right! The best part: it’s much cheaper!!

All of the items below were purchased at the Lots & for less than the original retail price; and although some of the savings were only, say, $.50 per nail polish, that’s not bad for each bottle–the savings add up people! Brands send their items to specific stores, and then those stores send their excess items to Big Lots–nothing is wrong with them. Because of that, they can sell them at a cheaper price. All of the items featured were purchased for less than $30, with the exception of some of the nail polishes. I bought 10 of the Sinful Colors in a separate transaction, at a different time for about $20.

So, if you guys are interested I have all of the prices listed below. Also, it’s important to note that my mom joined the Rewards program, so she has the privilege of getting an additional 20% off when they have their big sales. What does all of this mean, you ask? It means that you can get eyeliner for $.80 and if I were you, I’d head to Big Lots! 🙂 Be sure to follow them on twitter to stay updated on their great deals!
