ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a new formula from ColourPop that’s supposed to be “super intense” with “high impact metallic pearls” and a “non-drying formula” that “is extremely long-wearing” (but it is “not completely transfer resistant”). Of ColourPop’s liquid lipstick formulas, this had the most slip and least pigmentation (across all four shades)–more semi-opaque, though they were buildable. The consistency spreads well across the lips, but it could look more even; I think the darker coloring of the shades made some of the translucency less apparent. They dry down to a mostly transfer-proof finish, and they are flexible and comfortable to wear. I got between four and six hours of wear with these, and they seemed to break down easily with food compared to the Ultra Satins/Mattes. Two of the four shades were a little drying, while the other two were non-drying.

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia, Rebel Pink, Berry Bossom, Blackest Berry The Loaded Bolds Color Sensational Lipcolors

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark fuchsia with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly evenly–there was some slip to the formula that left very, very subtle streaks around the edge, but I did not find these to be noticeable to my eye when looking at myself in a regular mirror. The texture was creamy enough to glide on but didn’t slide around when worn. It wore well for six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Charlotte Tilbury Electric Poppy (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Dangerously Red (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Alpha (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced It's Happening (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Cougar (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Relentlessly Red (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Lovespell (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $55.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Chanel La Merveilleuse (347) (LE, $36.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Chanel La Romanesque (50) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar).
