Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks: Review and Swatches

Finally, I am in the Colourpop bandwagon! For months, I have been contemplating if i should get a Colourpop lipstick but luckily, I received a message from an online seller in instagram asking me if I would love to try out Colourpop! I did not hesitate and immediately went over the Colourpop website to check the shades. Thank you @thevanitybelle of instagram for this. 

My dilemma boiled down to whether I should get the lippie stix or the liquid lipstick. Since I do not have liquid lipsticks in my stash, I chose the liquid version. Now, there are two formulas that I chose: Ultra Satin and Ultra Matte. The Ultra Satin Lip Colors are the fairly new formula of Colourpop. It is a cross between satin and matte lipstick. It gives off a healthy sheen but adheres to the lipstick like a matte formula. The Ultra Matte Version is almost the same with the Ultra satin Version sans the sheen. 

The color pay off of these liquid lipsticks are phenomenal. If you have not heard of the rumor, these lippies are very similar in ingredients and texture with the expensive Kylie Lip Kits. The intense color pigment delivers easily with one swipe. It goes on full color with even one layer and it the ultra matte dries down to a super matte finish. I love how lightweight the consistency of these liquid lipsticks are. They cover up my dark lip lines very well too. Application is very easy as the size of the doe foot applicator is small enough to get into the corners of my lips.
It is long lasting but starts to crumble especially on the inner portion of the lips when you eat oily food. One of the cons is that it is very drying and unforgiving on chapped lips. It is best to use it with a lipbalm for easier removal.

The Ultra Satin version does not settle on the fine lines and does not highlight the dry areas of my lips. This is evidenced by the Lip swatches below. On the other hand, the Ultra Matte Version can emphasize every crack and  dry portion of the lips, hence, hydrating the lips and getting rid of the cracked or dry skin will make the lip color apply look more polished/smooth. 
Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
Swatches: Lumiere2, Tulle, Frick n Frack and Bad Habit

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Lumiere 2
Lumiere 2 is a brainchild of my favorite youtube guru, Kathleen Lights. The color actually changes depending on the skin tone of the person wearing it. Lumiere 2 on my lips is a cool toned purplish pink that has gray tones to it.
Colourpop Frick N Frack
Frick N Frack is a warm terracotta with peachy brown hue. 
Colourpop Tulle
Tulle is a deep reddish brown.
Colourpop Bad Habit

Bad habit is gorgeous intense medium fuchsia pink.

Overall, the colors I have chosen areEvery beautiful except for lumiere 2 that do not work on my skintone. My favorite is Bad habit which is surprising because I am not fond of pink lipsticks.
