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. MAC Burnt Spice (P, $21.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Bestie (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Half 'n' Half (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Evan (P, $35.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). MAC Sweet Thing (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cashew (P, $24.00) is glossier, darker (95% similar). MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Cool Girl (P, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria (P, $32.00) is glossier, warmer, darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Time Square (P, $6.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $34.00) is glossier, warmer, darker (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 glossier, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is glossier, cooler (85% similar). MAC Crème Cup (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Peach Buff (P, $7.99) is lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Melancholia (P, $20.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is glossier, darker (85% similar). Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is glossier, darker (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is glossier, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Cami (P, $5.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is cooler, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Queen B (P, $21.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is glossier, darker (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. 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 Koala Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Koala Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Koala Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant pastel lavender.” It is a brightened, lavender purple with cool undertones and a very matte finish. The consistency was a little thinner, and it had a tendency to streak while applied. It dried down very quickly, and there was noticeable flaking after four hours of wear until it was somewhat patchy at the six-hour mark. The formula was a little drying overall. Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Lychee Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright warm violet.” It’s a brightened, magenta purple with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but this is a shade that dried very quickly and tended to “crack” a bit once I smiled and emphasized my natural lip lines. The color wore for nearly eight hours all in all, though there was some uneven fading through the center. It started to feel drying after four hours of wear. Urban Decay Bittersweet (DC, $22.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Vibrant Violet (P, $7.99) is glossier, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Shimmy Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Shimmy Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Shimmy Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale pastel baby pink.” It’s a lightly brightened, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly with a slightly thicker consistency compared to other shades in the range. I thought it was going to appear “cracked,” but it seemed to smooth out nicely when I smiled. The color lasted for six hours, while the formula was just a bit drying after five hours of wear. Colour Pop Ace (LE, $5.00) is glossier, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Solow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral nude pink.” It’s a muted, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the least matte shades in the range, though it is still a matte finish to me. It had good pigmentation, but I noticed a very light veil of translucency with this shade. On me, the color wore for six and a half hours with even fading and was neither drying nor hydrating. Milani Lust (LE, $8.99) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). NARS Vanessa (P, $32.00) is glossier (90% similar).
