ColourPop LAX & Limbo Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks Reviews, Photos, Swatchew

ColourPop LAX Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop LAX Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop LAX Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vampy blackened red.” It’s a very, very dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It felt almost powdery after it dried down, and it was a shade that was challenging to apply evenly as it dried down quickly. It faded unevenly for me, though it wasn’t too noticeable as it stained the lips a bit underneath. The color lasted for six hours decently, and it was drying after four hours of wear. MAC Deep Love (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Prim (P, $6.00) is glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Vampira (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Limbo Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep chocolate brown.” It’s a muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and smoothly. The consistency was easily spread across the lips but didn’t easily feather or skip outside the natural lip line. It wore well for seven hours but faded a bit faster from the center of the lips. Too Faced Naughty by Nature (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Colour Pop Kae (LE, $6.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Wannabe (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Hollywood Blvd. (P, $5.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar).

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.

It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, but the texture had a moderate amount of slip such that the color applied unevenly and settled into lip lines over time. It lasted for four and a half hours before resembling more of a stain. It wasn’t drying at least! MAC Power My Spirit (LE, $19.00) is glossier (95% similar).

It was intensely pigmented and applied with even coverage, though the texture was stiffer compared to the other five shades. It tugged slightly when I applied it directly from the tube.

ColourPop Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0352 oz.) are slim, twist-up lipsticks that have a sweet, vanilla-y scent (that sometimes smells a little waxy, too) in a variety of shades and finishes. Each finish has its own formula, and all six shades in this post had matte finishes. This type of finish is supposed to have “full coverage,” long-wear, and be “ultra comfortable.” Some can be dry, others have just enough creaminess not to be difficult to use. Similarly, some have a more matte finish than others. Wear varies from shade to shade but leans towards four or longer, and some shades are drying over time.

Milani Beloved & Crush Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme
Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish. You’ll mostly find them at your local drugstore (I got mine from Walgreens), but they are available online as well through Milani directly. These have a very thin, liquid-y consistency–they easily get outside the lines and in general, the applicator can apply far more than you need, so I highly recommend a little patience and maybe using a lip brush (if you can) to apply and get really precise, neat lines. The formula has a longer dry down–about five to ten minutes before you can press your lips together–and gets very tacky after two minutes or so (do NOT! press your lips together or else you will lift color in large patches!). They’re one of the lesser drying liquid lipsticks I’ve come across (but these did get a bit drying after four to six hours of continuous wear), and they are long-wearing and pigmented. They have a moderately strong sweet, vanilla scent.

Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “brown rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff with a thin, highly spreadable consistency, which gave really smooth and even coverage, but it does make it a little harder to apply if you don’t wipe the applicator a bit prior to application (think of it like mascara). It wore well for eight hours and was a touch drying after six hours of wear. Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Mayflower (DC, $26.00) is glossier, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Bansar (P, $25.00) is glossier, warmer, lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is glossier, more muted, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Mosh Pit (LE, $5.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Beach Bum (P, $22.00) is glossier, cooler, darker (85% similar). Tarte TBT (P, $20.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Front Row (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Liar (P, $17.00) is glossier, lighter (80% similar). Tarte Delish (P, $20.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Milani Crush Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm brick brown.” It’s a dark red-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that looked smooth once it dried down, but it was somewhat uneven–there were places that appeared darker than others, even though I didn’t see so much actual streaking. The color lasted for eight hours before having noticeable fading, and it felt a little drying after the six-hour mark. Kat Von D Plath (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Vampira (P, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Kae (LE, $6.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Lax (P, $6.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar).

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Mixed Tape Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone cool grey.” It’s a medium, purple-taupe with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.

ColourPop Party Time Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve grey.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple-taupe with a sprinkling of very, very fine shimmer over a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, while the texture had the drier (but smooth) consistency of a lot of the ColourPop’s mattes, but it wasn’t too dry; the eyeshadow still spread out without losing intensity and was easy to apply on the lid.

ColourPop Straight Trippin’ Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep black with a slight hint of a violet hue.” It’s a purpled burgundy with warm, plummy undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a fairly blendable texture, but it ran a little drier, so it needed extra blending to ensure it didn’t look uneven or patchy when applied. The color lasted for ten hours without any fading or creasing that I could see. Too Faced Meow! (LE, $16.00) is cooler, lighter (95% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Plaid Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep blackened olive.” It’s a deepened olive green with subtle, warm khaki undertones and fine khaki and green shimmer. It was intensely pigmented with a really creamy, blendable texture that still applied with full intensity to the lid. At this point, I sound like a broken record, but after ten hours of wear, it still looked as good as it did initially applied. Clarins Forest #3 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Shade V (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Cobra (LE, $19.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #4 (P) is lighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Throws It Back Fall 2015 Super Shock Shadows (Part 1)

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Supermodel Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft golden ivory.” It’s a brightening, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, blendable, and smooth texture that applied easily to the lid and didn’t emphasize the skin’s natural texture. It was still going strong after ten hours of wear. NARS Shade IV (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop I Spy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow peach.” It’s a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was drier and more challenging to apply as the color would turn patchy and just sit on the lid very unevenly. I couldn’t get it to look as smooth on the lid as it did on the skin, even when patting it on with fingertips. Colour Pop Just a Sip (LE, $5.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Boy Band Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “intense red copper.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, yellow-orange undertones and pink and gold shimmer. The consistency is soft, smooth, and extremely blendable on the lid without losing its intensity. It had fantastic color payoff and was fully intact after ten hours of wear. Guerlain Petrouchka #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Gravitational (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Antiqued (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop Stereo Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened burgundy with copper and pink violet duo chrome glitter.” It’s a deepened, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and lighter gold and plum sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more emollient, thin consistency compared the average ColourPop eyeshadow. It applied better with fingertips or patted on in two to three layers for truer-to-pan intensity in practice. It wore well for ten hours with minimal fall out but no fading or creasing. Too Faced Pop (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Deep Plum (LE, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). theBalm Alice Copper (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Central Perk Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dirty maroon.” It’s a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a drier consistency compared to other shades, though it wasn’t actually dry. The texture was smooth, squishy as you’d expect, but it could been more emollient to make blending easier. I liked how it applied with some effort, but just know that it takes some patience to work with. It wore for a full ten hours without fading or creasing. MAC Everyone's Darling (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Bitten (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Goji (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Cruel Intentions, Never Been Kissed, Girl Power Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage, and it applied with the most pigmentation with fingertips (exactly as described), but I had no problems using a stippling brush and using two layers for color. The texture was lightweight and blended out easily, more like a powder in that respect, and it wore for nine and a half hours on me. Tarte Genius (LE, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar).

ColourPop Never Been Kissed Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “dusty coral.” It’s a muted, medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture was smooth, blendable, and felt like a powder as soon as it hit the skin. The color payoff was buildable, just as described by the brand, and you’ll get the most opaque coverage with fingertips while brushes will yield less coverage, but the payoff is buildable in two to three layers. This shade wore for nine hours before fading on me. NARS Savage (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Clinique Ginger Pop (01) (P, $21.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar).

It had good pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture. It is a Pressed Pigment, and they are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” I’ve tested and used it as a blush, where it performed well–it blended out without issue and lasted for nine and a half hours.
