ColourPop Marshmallow Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight, bold lipstick with a satin finish” that is “extra intense colour saturation” and “long-wearing,” but the brand is quick to note that it is “not completely kiss proof.” The consistency is very light to lightweight with a thin to mousse-like consistency–they feel a little heavier going on than the Ultra Matte formula, but they don’t feel heavy on. They dry down somewhat, but it isn’t a full, flat dry down like matte liquid lipsticks, and when you press your lips together, there is moderate tackiness there, but I didn’t notice any lifting or separating of color by doing so. Thus far, they have been extremely long-wearing and comfortable to wear for the most part–it’s after ten hours or so that I notice my lips feeling a little dry–but six hours into wear and the colors have looked good post-meals/post-drinking. I think if you like the idea of longer-wearing, mostly matte lip color but find most liquid lipsticks too drying or too flat while not needing an ultra-hydrating formula, you might like these.
ColourPop Marshmallow Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “greyed out lavender.” It’s a muted, light-medium lavender with strong, cool gray undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff and was easy to apply and get smooth, even coverage. The color was still going strong after eight hours of wear and started to get a little drying right around that point. I was surprised that the color didn’t pull into lip lines, nor did the color fade unevenly, despite going through two meals and two cups of coffee. Kat Von D Zero (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Petit Four Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep charcoal grey.” It’s a rich, medium-dark bluish-gray with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had a little more shine than most shades in the range, though it wasn’t glossy, and it was a true satin finish after two to three hours of wear. The color was still mostly intact after eight hours of wear with very minimal fading. The formula was comfortable to wear for six to seven hours and became clingier after that. MAC Halsey (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Smashbox Punked (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Melt Cosmetics Space Cake (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar).
