In celebration of the National Lipstick Day (July 28th), I am sharing my review of Colourpop’s highly-raved lippie product called Ultra Matte Lip. This indie company introduced 25 shades of matte liquid lipsticks last June and today I am reviewing 7 of them. Please bear my long post because like what I always tell you, I do my best to provide comprehensive reviews. ;D

PACKAGING

Colourpop Ultra Matte Packaging Box

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip comes in a slim, white box. On the body of the box, you will find that the word “ULTRA MATTE LIP” is printed in holographic letters while the name of the lipstick shade is printed on a sticker-like material and placed at the bottom of the box.

These liquid lipsticks are placed in a transparent, and high-end looking plastic tubes with a silver cap. The cap is actually the holder for its applicator. The word “Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip” is printed in a holographic sticker and pasted body of the tube. At the bottom of the bottle, you will also find the name of the shade.

SWATCHES

*please note that due to the difference in undertones, the shades may look brighter or darker to different people.

For your reference, I am NC25 in MAC Pro Longwear Foundation.

SOLOW

Colourpop Solow Ultra Matte Review

Described as neutral nude pink. This is the first shade that I tried out of the 7 that I purchased. I was so excited that when these lippies arrived, I tried it right away. I applied it without any lip balm and yes, it was very drying and even left my lips a bit flaky when I pressed it together.

To avoid such problems, I applied Burt’s Bees Lip Balm on my lips before I continued swatching these matte liquid lipsticks.

Back to SOLOW, I was very happy that I gave this a shade a chance because honestly, I thought that matte lipsticks would only look good on deeper shades (reds, fuchsia, violets) and I used to believe that nudes and light pink colors should be worn with some gloss. Again, it was just me. Then I met SOLOW, and my opinion was changed. This color can be worn for your day look and it can also be paired with a black/brown eyeliner and some light blusher.

OUIJI

Colourpop Ouiji Review and Swatch

Described as bright, coral-red. This shade looked brighter when swatched on my hand but once applied on the lips, the color (thankfully!) was not so loud. In fact, it is bright but not too much for the eyes. 🙂 This is one of my favorites. 🙂

SUCCULENT

Colourpop Succulent Review and Swatch

Described as electric neon red. This is a lipstick with a BANG! If Frenchie is bright, then this is BRIGHTER and of course, I love it!

Succulent Clique AnnaNicole Lady Danger

I wore this for 6 hours and had dinner within that timeframe. After meals, the lipstick did not feather but it faded a little near the middle of the lips. There was no need to retouch, but I did anyway and the result? It had a crumbly texture which was not flattering. :/

CREEPER

Colourpop Creeper Review and Swatch

Described as true classic blue red. So, of course I got this because well, it’s red. 🙂 I tested this and lasted for 9 hours and it performed well. With the lip balm under the ultra matte, it did not feel too drying and it was comfortable on the lips.

When I compared it with Lime Crime Red Velvet and Jeffree Star Velour Lipstick in Redrum, CREEPER was brighter than the two.

ATTACK OF THE PINKS!

MARS

Colourpop Mars Review and Swatch

Described as red fuchsia. It is bright, bold and beautiful! It easily glides on the lips and stains well. I see this as a go-to lip color for Fridays and Saturdays. Yeah? Yeah!

HIGHBALL

Colourpop Highball Review and Swatch

Described as hot red-pink. This is too hot to handle! 🙂 Yes, it is a lovely color, but make sure that you don’t get too excited when you apply on the lips. I wore this for 6 hours and tested with meals, too. Like the rest of the ultra matte lips, it did not feather but faded a little after meals. However, it leaves a good stain on the lips so it was unnoticeable. 😉

7. SUNDAE

Colourpop Sundae Review and Swatch

Described as vibrant pink magenta with a subtle blue-violet undertone. Aside from the lovely color, I ordered this because I got curious with the iridescence. The shiny elements can be seen when you look at the lipstick tube, but it was very subtle on the lips. The color screams “Capital Barbie!”

PROs:

*These comments/opinions are based on the 7 shades that I tried and tested.

  • These liquid lipsticks opaque and pigmented.
  • Easy to use and apply BUT it dries quicker compared with Nyx Soft Matte Lipsticks, Lime Crime, and Jeffree Star Velour Liquid.
  • Light on the lips.
  • No feathering despite having meals.
  • Very minimal transfer (as seen on coffee cups and drinking glasses)
  • Made in the USA.
  • Cruelty-free products.
  • Scent-free.
  • Price
    • Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip is sold at 6 USD per tube while sellers from Carousell in Singapore are giving it between 13-15 SGD a pop. Each tube contains 0.1128 oz of lipstick.(below is a comparison with other major liquid lipstick in the market.)
      • KVD – 0.22 fl. oz – sold at SEPHORA for 20 USD (38 SGD)
      • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick – sold at 18 USD (from 30 – 40 SGD)
      • Lime Crime Velvetines – 0.88 fl. oz – sold at 20 USD (from 30 – 40 SGD)

If you are the type of person who wants to have a lot of options for less, then this is the worth giving a try.

CONs:

  • Since it dries quickly, you do not have much time to apply it as compared with other liquid lipsticks.
  • DRYING.
    • Again, this is expected from matte lipsticks. But I observed that after using these, my lips felt dry even after I removed it. If this happens to you, make sure that you use a lip scrub and apply lip balm after. 😉
    • Some may be more drying than the rest. In fact, even after you remove it, your lips will still feel dry.
  • AVAILABILITY
    • Unfortunately, this brand is not available locally and in order to get the shades that I want, I had to go from one seller to another. I got my Ultra Matte Lips from Pingbong and shoppaholicmom from Carousell.

Berry’s Useful Tips:

  1. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips.
  2. Use lip balm (before applying and after removing)
  3. REMOVING the Ultra Matte Lip
    • Use a waterproof makeup remover. I use BIODERMA Sensibio H20 because it is good for sensitive skin.
    • Some are using olive oil or coconut oil.
    • Use a cotton and gently wipe your lips. Others are also using Q-tips.

We have reached the end of this review, and I hope you had a good read and that I was able to provide the details that you are looking for. So what do you think? Are you giving it a try? ;D

    1. Hi Terri! Thank you! They (Colourpop) have lipsticks with satin finish, too. You may want to give it a try 😉 I think liquid matte lipstick is the thing this 2015 and most of the brands are coming up with their own version. 🙂

  2. I’ve been looking at a couple of shades from this brand but the shops that I always buy make up from is always out of stock. I feel like I’m the only one who hasn’t tried anything from Colourpop yet! Haha.

    Btw, I think Solow looks best on you! Such a gorgeous color! It compliments your skin tone so well! xx

    1. Thank you @Kara,

      I agree! the their Ultra matte lipsticks can really suck out the life on your lips but based on what I have so far, I do not have any exact dupe for Succulent but Cozy (ultra satin) is a bit similar. What you can do is use a lip liner first (try High Energy from MAC or Clique from Colourpop) and then apply Cozy on top. The colour will still be bold but not as drying as the ultra matte.

      Hope this helps!

    1. Like what I’ve mentioned on my post, just:
      – Exfoliate and moisturize your lips.
      – Use lip balm (before applying and after removing)
      and just dont double coat, i think that makes it more drying. 🙂 use lip liner to intensify the shade.
