I purchased 13 of the ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks earlier this month:
• Midi • Trap • Succulent • Tulle • Sundae • High Ball • Creeper • Succulent • Pacific • LAX • Mars • Lychee • Zipper •
I thought I’d share my thoughts…
Let me first start by saying that these are the first liquid lipsticks that I’ve played around with so, I can’t compare them to Anastasia, Jeffrey Star, or Kat Von D.
With that being said, here’s what I think:
F O R M U L A
The formula of these lipstick is a tad drying but, from what I hear, most all liquid lipsticks are (at least a little). But as long as you know what you’re doing, it isn’t anything that you can’t work with. I use a Lush Cosmetics Lip Scrub at least 3-4 times a week and I always keep my lips super moisturized at all times, as well as right before applying these lipsticks so, the dryness doesn’t bother me that much. I also like the fact that they are a little bit more on the liquid side. I’ve heard complaints about how runny they are but, I find it makes them easier to apply.

Once these lipsticks are on, they’re on. You can eat, you can drink, you can kiss; no worries. You’re all set. I use coconut oil and my face wash to remove them at the end of my day, it makes things much easier and it’s way more gentle on my lips, obviously.

The wand is the perfect size in my opinion, and the shape of it makes it super simple to stay within the lines and get a good clean application. As far as pigmentation goes, I have to give these shades a total 10/10. I get compliments all the time when I wear these. They definitely stand out.
Moral of the story, for $6 dollars a pop, you can’t really go wrong with this product.
Have you guys tried any yet? What are your favorite shades? What do you think?
