Review: ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips

Hey guys!

A couple of weeks ago, my Colourpop order arrived and I was so excited because two of the shades that I picked up were bought because I knew that I was participating in Liptember. I’ve heard pretty mixed reviews on this product but they’re mostly positive. I think that everyone is mainly excited that we have amazing liquid lipstick colours at pretty great prices.

I firstly want to talk about the price and shipping because for Australians, it’s really important at the moment with our dollar so low. The shipping on the website is weighted, so unless you’re getting a free shipping deal, this could be one pricey purchase for us. I ordered 4 colours and they were $6 USD each. With shipping added and price converted to AUD, each lipstick (with a portion of the shipping included) was about $12.50 AUD. I like adding in the shipping when I divide up the price because I like to see how it might compare to products that we can already by here. Note that this was before the stock market crash so things might actually be worse now than when I originally ordered.

So that makes this product more expensive than an Australis Velourlips. For the vast colour range, I think that a few extra dollars per lipstick is totally worth it.

The formula of these is like nothing I’ve used before. I’ve never used Lime Crime (thank god), Stila, Anastasia Beverly Hills or LA Splash, etc. It’s thinner than the Me Now Long Lasting Lipglosses but when it has dried on the lips, it feels a lot like the Australis Velourlips, but maybe a tad more drying. And of course, like all matte liquid lipsticks, these are drying. It’s expected. If you don’t like drying lipsticks, don’t go near this product. You can wear it with a lip balm underneath and it will be pretty comfortable, so I’d recommend doing that.

L to R: Midi, Clueless, Jellies, Dr. M

This product dries FAST! It is very watery and extremely pigmented and it dries within about a minute, so you need to work fast but you also won’t need to keep your mouth open for too long, for it to dry.

The picture where I’m wearing Clueless is probably my new favourite picture of myself. I love the colour and how it suits my skin. Midi looks just like my natural lip colour but it makes me look more done up. I can see this being a really versatile shade with liner and ombre lips and things. Jellies and Dr. M are very pigmented and they definitely make a statement. I remember saying to Caitlan and Zoe that I wished that there was an easily accessible dark green matte liquid lipstick and I think that Colourpop gave us exactly what we were asking for!

Overall, I am very happy with these lip products and I would like to buy more soon!

I hope that you are all having a fantastic day!
