ColourPop Littlestitious & Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel dusty pink.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy, thin consistency that applied evenly. The color wore well for six and a half hours without being drying. It’s a much lighter version of Dopey (which is too much darker to be considered a dupe, but I just wanted to point it out). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flynn (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sugarcane (P, $26.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bianca & Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fully opaque color payoff with a thin, spreadable consistency that yielded even coverage. The liquid lipstick dried down to a fully matte finish, but it had a very textured appearance where the lines of the lips were emphasized–it made my lips look drier than they actually were. The color lasted for six hours and was somewhat drying. Colour Pop Littlestitious (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Squeeze (LE, $5.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
