I’ve been meaning to order some stuff from ColourPop for a while and finally got around to doing so and I couldn’t be more satisfied. I didn’t go crazy right away as I wanted to get only a few things and see the quality but I will definitely be ordering again – soon!
I was especially interested in the ultra matte liquid lipsticks because I love wearing matte lippies during fall/winter months and the colours are just gorgeous so I got 4 of those: Trap, Midi, Kapow and Seesaw.
I couldn’t resist so I got 2 highlighters as well, Wisp and Teasecake. I mean they are so affordable. $6USD for lipglosses and $8 USD for highlighters.
ULTRA MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS
Trap is my favourite. It is such an unusual shade that it’s even hard to describe it but the best way to put it is it’s a mauve/deep grey cool shade.
Midi is a perfect nude for every day. Very beige and neutral.
Kapow is similar to Trap but darker and more leaning towards brown.
Seesaw is a cool lavender/pink.
– very pigmented
– extremely long lasting
– gorgeous shade
– no smell or taste
– if matte is what you are looking for, it doesn’t get more matte than these!
– applies evenly
The only thing that I can say is that the texture bothers me a bit but that’s because as much as I love the look of a matte lip, I hate the feel of it. But it’s funny because as long as you don’t lick your lips you feel nothing, when I lick my lips it feels like they are rough and chapped and gross. But that’s what you get with matte textures. Can’t escape that.
Wisp is a gorgeous golden shade like champagne colour.
Teasecake is a golden rosey pink shade.
I really don’t have anything bad to say about the highlighters. Some say they’re not very pigmented and they’re not but I don’t like highlighters to be so in your face unless I am going out for the night and really want my highlight to pop. But they are buildable.
Their consistency is different than any other highlighter I’ve tried. It’s a creamy mousse. And it feels wet to the touch!
They blend beautiful into the skin. Although they may look glittery, they’re not, once applied. They are very naturally looking and give a subtle but beautiful glow.
All in all, I love it all and I will order again.
