The thing that is all the rage at the moment is matte liquid lipsticks, thanks to the Kylie Jenner Lip kits and lets be honest, most of you reading this have tried to get your hands on one at some point and have either failed at getting one because they sell out so quickly or cried at the price of it and then the shipping fees and the potential of having to pay customs on it and it being incredibly expensive and there is no way that you could afford that in a million years. Therefore I did some research to either get the lip kits here for a cheaper price or an alternative. When doing research I ofund that the company that make the Kylie Lip Kits also make the COLOURPOP Ultra Matte Lip. These are pretty much half the price of the Kylie kits as they are only $6 each, however, unfortunately they don’t ship to the UK so I had a look and saw that you could get them on Amazon and they cost a complete bomb! So I had to see if I could find them any cheaper, I found that the cheapest way to do it was to get them on ebay, this came out at £11.45 (including postage). This was the cheapest I could find it and also there was no postage so that was amazing so I made an order.
I only bought one of the shades as I wanted to try it out to see if I would like it. I bought the shade Bianca, as I thought that this would be a nice natural colour for me to where and also I have way to many red lipsticks (blog post on my red lipsticks here!) This is the perfect shade for my skin tone! I will say that it is slightly darker than what they say but I still think it looks amazing!
Now onto the actual product. The application of this was really easy, the lipstick glided on quite easily and felt really nice. I figured that it would be quite drying on the lips, however, it didn’t feel all that drying on the lips all I will say is that it felt slightly sticky for some reason, however it wasn’t uncomfortable, it just wasn’t expected as they the lipsticks dry matte. The real thing that I think that is amazing for this product is the staying power for this. With the COLOURPOP Ultra Matte Lip you don’t need to reapply even after eating which is amazing because I am also always forgetting to reapply.
Overall, I am super impressed with the COLOURPOP Ultra Matte Lip is a product that I would really recommend this and I would definitely buy more shades (when I have a bit more money!).
