Colourpop is a brand I have been wanting to try for ages, I’ve heard so many good reviews on their lippies that when I had the chance to buy a couple from my sister I couldn’t resist. Its pretty much impossible to get Colourpop in the UK unless you order direct from their website and pay the cost of customs which no one really want to do, unlike some American make up websites they don’t add custom prices onto your total price. Colourpop if you are reading this please come to the UK!
I managed to get my hands on 3 Ultra Satin Lip lippies and 2 Ultra Matte Lip lippies all of them being nude shades. Gotta love a nude shade! The box packaging is simple with holographic writing which makes it stand out. I tend not to keep the boxes from products but with these they seem to have a colour code; red for the mattes and a yellowy green for the satin ones.
The applicator is the classic doe foot and I love this for applying the colour to the lips, I have such weirdly shaped lips and anything other than a doe foot helps me make an absolute mess not a lovely lip finish. So the 5 shades I bought were:
Ultra Satin Lip
Littlestitious – a lovely dusty pinky purple.
Calypso – a mid toned pink.
Alyssa – a muted pink.
Ultra Matte Lip
Bianca – a soft mauve.
Midi – a pale dusty pink.
Obviously I had to do a wear test on each of the kinds of lippies. The satin colours glide on beautifully on the lips, all 3 colours went on completely opaque and the colours were just amazing, didn’t feel drying on the lips at all. However there was a transfer issue, I tend to like my lipsticks to have amazing staying power and not transfer onto a mug or a glass, but I still absolutely love these so this issue was quickly swept aside. The matte lippies … well what can I say?! Amazing staying power, both dried completely opaque and lasted hours. I think I may of found my new favourite liquid lipstick!
I think I’m going to have to order more things from Colourpop, all I’ve seen over social media is positive reviews, their eyeshadows and their lippie stix are definitely on my wish list for the big C word!
These retail for $6.50 each from the Colourpop website.
