So recently ColourPop Cosmetics released 25 shades in their new ultra matte lipsticks. I spent almost 3 grueling hours trying to purchase my lip shades due to their site crashing because it was on overload from all of the ordering taking place at one time. I haven’t worn all of the shades and I purchased 8 of the 25 colors, but here are the swatches of my purchase.
- The colors go on like liquid but dry very quickly into an ultra matte formula. You do need to make sure that your lips are moisturized prior to application because the ultra matte dries very hard and will feel very dry on lips. The company recommends exfoliation prior to use.
- I recommend using their accompanying lip liner and a lip brush to apply on the outer rim of the lips because the applicator tip is large and you can’t get a precise line otherwise and since it is fast drying you could end up with a mess.
- The colors are very pigmented and will not budge even when you drink or eat and you can reapply and it will form another layer of lipstick.
- I prefer to use a clear gloss on top of the lipstick because for me it is too dry feeling and after a short time the color begins to crack and look like it does in the picture.
I like the color coverage and the long-lasting wear of the lipstick and as long as I use a gloss on top of it, I really do like the product so I give it:
***If you are looking for a matte lipstick only with no sheen then this product may not be the one because of its super matte formula it is just too drying and it cracks after wearing it a short time.***
Do you own any of these ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks?
