ColourPop Be-dazzled & Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

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. Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC She-Rebel (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (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). Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Dr. M & Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

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.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Illamasqua Apocalips (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
