ColourPop Be-dazzled & Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep true purple.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium purple with cool undertones and a vinyl-like sheen. It doesn’t dry down to a fully flat matte finish like a lot of the other shades have. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a thin consistency that is a little harder to apply evenly. The formula feels clingier and really emphasizes the natural texture and lines on the lips in a way that makes them look somewhat shirveled–it’s not as soft or smooth as the average ColourPop liquid lipstick. I noticed the color flaking away from the center of the mouth after four hours of wear, and it was fairly drying over time, though most of the color lasted for six and a half hours. Kat Von D Roxy (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC She-Rebel (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Recollection (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Belladonna (DC, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). MAC Matte Royal (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). MAC 4Eva (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark blackened violet.” It’s a blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (one of the least pigmented shades I’ve encountered in the line-up!) that dries down to a mostly matte finish. Unfortunately, as it is a very dark color, that sheerness also came with unevenness. It wore for eight hours without flaking, and it was moderately drying after six and a half hours of wear. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stud (LE, $16.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Villain (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Black Truffle (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Which Witch (LE, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Smoked Purple (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

ColourPop Dr. M & Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blackened green.” It’s a cool-toned, green-leaning teal with very, very subtle emerald green pearl. It’s such a cool color, and I love that it applied with fully opaque, even color, but it emphasizes the texture/lines of the natural lip tremendously in a way that makes them appear raisin-like. Despite this, it didn’t seem to “crack” when I smiled, but it was a little more uncomfortable to wear (I felt more aware of it on than other shades in the range, even for liquid lipstick). It wore for nine hours and was moderately drying after five hours of wear.
Illamasqua Apocalips (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted greey taupe.” It’s a medium-dark, purpled taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This was less of a flat matte finish and more of your traditional matte finish, and this shade had a much longer drying time compared to a lot of the range, so you’ll need to be careful as it dries down to avoid pressing your lips together or else the color will lift/flake off where the lips meet. I had very slight “cracking” with this shade after an hour and a half of wear. It was fairly comfortable to wear until four hours, where it felt a bit drying,a nd it lasted for seven hours. Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Deep Rooted (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is lighter, more muted, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish.

ColourPop Mr. Blonde & Jellies Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright true turquoise.” It’s a brightened, medium sky blue with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It was mostly matte, but there was an almost vinyl-like sheen to it–and it took forever to dry down. Even when “dry” after a half hour, there was still a very light tack in places. This shade had intense pigmentation that went on smoothly and evenly, but it had a thicker consistency that “cracked” as soon as I smiled. It felt a bit clingier, and it was prone to flaking from the center of the mouth over time, though the majority of the color was intact after six hours. The formula was somewhat drying overall. Make Up For Ever C602 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). MAC Dreampot (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Jellies Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich cobalt blue.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a soft sheen. Like Mr. Blonde, it didn’t dry down to a flat matte finish, even after waiting for a half hour–it looked more like vinyl or plastic on. The texture of this one is very runny, and I urge you to keep your tube upright when you’re using it; I had it slightly angled, and I had blue lipstick spilled everywhere! It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but it was difficult to keep it smooth as it was slightly tacky for an hour of wear, so any time the lips touched within that first hour, there was a risk of the color lifting in places. It wore for seven hours in total, but I had some minor flaking from the center of the mouth. NYX Sinful (P, $6.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Anastasia Paint (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Midnight Troll (LE, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Vain (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish.

ColourPop Beeper & Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm mid-tone taupe.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. I could see this leaning more neutral on those with naturally pink or cool-toned complexions. It had good pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color without “cracking” or emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was lightly drying after four hours of wear. Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Evan (P, $35.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Half 'n' Half (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cashew (P, $24.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Bestie (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Cool Girl (P, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Time Square (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Colour Pop Chi (LE, $6.00) is warmer (80% similar). NARS Indecent Proposal (LE, $28.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve pink.” It’s a muted, medium pink with neutrla-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It is funny that ColourPop said “Never look like a full-on Monet” with this shade, because it actually looks quite horrific up-close as the color cracks and is very prone to flaking while worn. It had the color payoff, but it lacked the smoothness and more even fading/wear of the majority of the line. It was moderately drying and lasted for five hours before it had turned patchy and uneven enough that it needed to be removed. Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Crème Cup (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Melancholia (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). Too Faced Queen B (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Cami (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
