My only black Friday purchase was the Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks, they had free international delivery so I thought I would take advantage of this offer to try out the Ultra Matte Lipsticks that EVERYONE and their mum raves about!
The lipsticks were for $6, that is roughly around £4.50-£5.00 which is very cheap! and the delivery as I said was free! The delivery didn’t take long to come it was just about a week, so that was a bonus, I thought it would take forever, although yes it did feel like forever haha!
I have been wanting to try colour pop cosmetics for ages but the delivery charges are so daunting! I didn’t want to go crazy and buy a whole bunch and find that I d0n’t even like the formula so I purchased three.
The three shades I got are Tulle; a deep maroon shade, Trap; a nude shade and Cheap Thrills a dark purple/grey shade I love this shade!
From T-B; Trap, Tulle, Cheap Thrills
The packaging as a whole is so pretty from the box down to the actual product, the product is actually quite chunky, I think I’m just used to the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks! When I opened the first lipstick I did not expect the product to be so watery it dropped on my clothes!! This is not a bad thing, I just wasn’t expecting it, I actually like that the lipstick is watery it just annoyed me that it went everywhere!
Application, was easy it glides on well and it’s so pigmented I didn’t have to apply it twice like some lipsticks! once on, it dries pretty slow, again I keep comparing it to the KVD lipsticks they dry so quick! This one is like the usual high street lipstick, I’m talking the sleek matte me.
Once dried the lipstick doesn’t budge it stays in place for a long time, however on the inner part of the lips where they meet it just disappeared, in fact it wouldn’t even stay there! This is the only thing that really annoys me BUT I do need to add that I think, and I said think as I am not an expert lol but I think it is something to do with the weather or having dry lips around this time of the year, I remember last year in the winter I avoided wearing matte lipsticks altogether because it was not going well however over the summer I was loving them SO I am hoping I love these more in the summer, if not then I will be upset because I really wanted to love these lipsticks!!
Other than the lips issue I find these lipsticks don’t over dry the lips and feel comfortable also for the price they are really good, I wish they were available in the UK I would love to try the other products from colour pop the eyeshadows are another product everyone raves about.
Rate the product: 6/10 (this is purely because of the lips issue !
Would I recommend this product?: Yes, it’s really good for the price and lasts a very long time.
Would I repurchase this product?: Depends if they work for me in the summer then yes definitely, if they don’t then no.
Thank you for reading my review, if any of you have any recommendations of other products from colour pop leave me a comment!
