Hi my Lovelies, In my previous blog post I mentioned that I bought some colourpop makeup through SHIPoutfromUSA. If you haven’t checked the blogpost click here and check the same. In the makeup world Colourpop liquid lipsticks are highly hyped. I had to have them in my vanity since they are so raved about. These liquid lipsticks are affordably priced at $6 (Approx INR 400) for 3.2g/0.11oz. There is a great shade selection and one for everyone. 🙂
Colourpop liquid lipsticks come in an outer white self-printed designed cardboard box packaging. You will see ‘ULTRA MATTE LIP’ printed in holographic letters & ingredient list on the other side. The lipstick shade is mentioned on one of the flip open sides of the box. While on the other end you will find ‘MADE WITH ❤️ IN U.S.A’.
The actual lipstick comes in a sleek round transparent tube with long foam doe foot applicator and silver screw cap. On the body of the tube you will see ‘Colourpop Ultra Matte’ sticker in holographic letters. Similarly just like the outer packaging you will find the lipstick shade at the bottom of the tube.
I bought 6 shades from the Colourpop Ultra Matte range.
Colourpop Zipper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Colourpop describes it as deep blackened purple shade. It is a gorgeous dark purple shade that would complement most skin tones. You should certainly go for this one without a second thought If you wish to get one purple shade from this collection.
Colourpop More Better Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Colourpop describes it as deep violet wine shade. It is a gorgeous deep wine shade that would complement all skin tones.
Colourpop Tulle Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Coloupop describes it as dusty mauve burgundy shade. It is a very beautiful deep vampy burgundy shade. It can be a great dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Vamp and Lime Crime Velvetines in Saint. ABH Vamp is a deeper brown while tulle has more red to it.
Colourpop Avenue Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Colourpop describes it as deep yellow red shade, like what?? red yellow? is that even a shade? 😃 It is a beautiful warm toned brick red shade that would complement most skin tones. You can wear this lipstick on any occasion since it is such a beautiful versatile shade. It is a good dupe for Lime Crime Wicked and also The Balm Cosmetics Adoring. 😉
Colourpop Lax Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Colourpop describes it as vampy blackened red shade. This is a stunning vampy shade and I am in love with it. It can be a great dupe for Kat Von D Vampira.
Colourpop Limbo Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Colourpop describes it as deep chocolate brown shade. It may be something that not every person would be comfy with as it gives a gothic appearance. But on the other hand some may love it. Its been all over the internet and personally I love the shade. It compliments my skin tone. Particularly this shade would look beautiful on all skin tones. It can be a great dupe for Kat Von D Lolita and also Lime Crime Velvetines in Salem.
The consistency of these lipsticks is liquidy and thin. It applies evenly and dries matte within few seconds of application. Also Colourpop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks look lighter in the tube than they on your lips after drying. Once it dries it feels weightless and powdery.
The formula of Colourpop Ultra matte liquid lipsticks does not contain any moisture whatsoever. These lipsticks are opaque and amazingly pigmented. One needs to be very careful with the application since correcting it can be a task. One swipe is good to go since the lipsticks are so pigmented.
Also any errors would require full removal and reapplication. It does not bleed or feather despite small meals. The lipsticks is not only smudge proof, budge proof but also transfer proof. Hence, you need not worry about reapplication. You need not layer the lipstick as it may crumble and turn streaky and patchy.
Ensure to prep up your lips. Exfoliate and hydrate your lips before applying these lipsticks as this will help them perform well and look flawless. These lipsticks do not tug on dry lips. But if lips are not exfoliated it may look crumbly.
These liquid lipsticks are the driest of all the liquid lipsticks I have tried till date. If you are looking for 100% matte and super long wearing lipstick then you will surely love these. Those with extreme dry lips or ones who do not like the typical extreme matte lipstick will not be happy with the formulation of these lipsticks.
The staying power of these lipsticks is pretty decent. They stay put on my lips for about 8-10 hours with meals. If you eat anything that’s too oily the colour may break down on your lips which tends to happen with every other liquid lipstick. Post 10 hours these tend to wear off from the centre and the corner of my lips.
If you are looking to expand your matte liquid lipstick collection then you should certainly pick up some shades from this collection. The quality is amazing. The wear time of these lipsticks is amazing when compared with other high-end liquid lipsticks and that too at a very affordable price.
You can either use any good oil or an oil based makeup cleanser to get these lipsticks off. I use coconut oil since It breaks down the colour really fast. Also it helps taking the lipstick off very easily.
Colourpop suggests storing these lipsticks upright and shaking before application.
