ColourPop Highball Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “hot red-pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a matte finish. This one was richly pigmented but a little thicker with a tendency to streak. The slightly thicker texture was extremely unforgiving if you needed to touch-up or wanted to fix any mistakes, as it really gave the lips a wrinkled appearance as the layers fused together. It dried down quickly but had enough time to work the color across the lips. This shade stayed on well for over eight hours and started to feel drying after six hours of wear. It fades more evenly, and it’s hard to tell from far away as it also stains, so as the lipstick wears down, a stain is left behind instead. MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Urban Decay Menace (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, glossier. Colour Pop Mars (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Tats (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Good Kisser (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC All Fired Up (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier.
