ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks: Part II

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:

Bianca:

a lighter pink, very similar to the Midi I’d previously purchased, but slightly darker

Times Square:

a tannish/pinkish color that looks similar to Bianca (if you watch the video below, you’ll see what I mean)

Be Merry:

a true pink, that reminds me of bubblegum!

Glitter:

a gorgeous purple color, with hints of pink

Last Dance:

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!!

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.

I also shot a YouTube

, 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!
