Today, I’ll be sharing one of my latest beauty obsession – the ColourPop Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick! I’ve decided to pick up 3 shades; 2 mattes and 1 satin. Both 0.11 0z liquid lipstick retails for $6.00 which is just a fraction of the cost of their high-end counterpart.

Product Overview

The packaging feels substantial and high-end. The doe foot applicator seems a little bit stiff compared to other brands I’ve tried and to be honest I do prefer this one since I have more control and I feel that it works well in applying the product evenly on my lips.

A. Ultra Matte
    • Very thin and watery upon 1st application
    • Glides on smoothly
    • Dries up pretty fast so you have to work fast
    • Feels weightless and powdery 
    • Highly pigmented
    • No scent nor taste
    • Long-wearing (last really well through eating and drinking)

Application tip: make sure to prep your lips prior to application as it can really get drying and will definitely show your lip cracks if ever you have some. I suggest using a lip scrub, moisturize, apply lip liner, then apply the lipstick.

  • Has a formula that can be buildable
  • Very pigmented and opaque
  • No scent nor taste

Overall

I prefer the Ultra Matte more than the Ultra Satin. I feel more comfortable wearing it than the latter plus the fact that it’s long-wearing and can get me through the day without so much touch-ups as I would when I wear the Ultra Satin. Don’t get me wrong, the Ultra Satin is a good product and for me I would use it when I would just go out to do some quick errands. 

Overall, I’d definitely purchase more of these. They’re very inexpensive and I’m impressed with the variation of shades that they have going on. For a $6.00 lip product, the formulation is amazing and the overall product is of great quality.
