Colour Pop is one of the most talked about brands lately and I recently decided to finally give them a try! I had been waiting until their Emerald Green ‘Dr. M’ was available to place an order and when Brooke let me know that it was in stock I was off like a shot!
I decided to pick up four of their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks to get a bit of a spread of the different colors!
From left to right I have Kapow, Limbo, Guess and Dr. M. I think something that is made clear by the swatches is that the color in the tube does not accurately present the color that will end up on your lips! That being said – I think they are very long wearing, especially in the more nude shades and they have amazing colour payoff. One well applied coat is all you need for an even and opaque color.
This is a perfect greige color! I have trouble finding a very neutral nude as most shades tend to be very warm. Pink shades are great when you want them, but with green hair the situation can get dicey quickly! This has been my go to neutral shade since the package arrived and I would highly recommend it!
I would say that Limbo is the opposite to Kapow in that it actually very warm toned. I would describe it as more of a warm brown than a true neutral. I really like the color and I think that the swatch online doesn’t do it justice!
Guess is a bit darker than I had expected. I am a bit of a purple lip aficionado, a holdover from my purple-hair days so I have tried more than my fair share of purple lip colors, but I don’t find this to be a true purple. I think it can come off as black in the right lighting so it isn’t going to be for everyone. This is the most liquid formula of the bunch but it still performs in terms of application and wear time so I definitely recommend it as an affordable option for a very vampy lip!
On to the last, but certainly not the least of my lip picks! Green lipstick incredibly difficult to find. I had been searching since I colored my hair in the fall and I wasn’t having much luck finding a color I likes, let alone something matte. I would say that this is definitely the driest of the colors I purchased however the color was the truest, both to the online swatch and the tube. This does wear off the fastest but as you may know if you frequent bolder lip colors, that isn’t out of the norm.
I would say that overall these are really great products that dry fully matte and have a smooth opaque formula. I would definitely order more! One of the only downsides is that the Colour Pop logo on the packaging is pretty flimsy and rubs off quickly. I think that is a minor issue however.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know which of these colors is your favorite or which colors you think I should try out next! Have a great day!
