Bobbi Brown Bellini, Uber Beige, Bond Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Bellini Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, very creamy texture that glided on without tugging on the lips, but it had enough slip that I had trouble with some of the color gathering in lip lines over time. It was comfortable to wear, as the formula was hydrating, over the five hours it lasted. Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Margherita (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty James (P, $35.00) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Misbehaved (49) (P, $50.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

ColourPop Jic, Lights Out, PYT, Salt Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Jic Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly, but it did pull into lip lines noticeably as it was drying down. The texture was comfortable on the lips and didn’t feel clingy (it felt more comfortable than it looked, I suppose!), and it was non-drying. This shade lasted for four hours on me. MAC Ring My Bell (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Altered Beige (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Siren Song (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Gossamer Wing (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Viper & Notion Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Viper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Viper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Viper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a deep, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color was fantastic, and it’s more unique than not, but there was something amiss with the formula, as it dried down and some areas were darker and pinker and other areas were grayer. It was like an ombre lip look gone bad! I thought it hadn’t dried down, but it had (no transfer and didn’t look different hours later). It applied well from the tube, and the product was fully opaque on the lips. The texture was clingy, and it did have noticeable “cracking” when I smiled; I could definitely feel I was wearing a liquid lipstick. This shade stayed on for over six hours with minimal changes in color/intensity, but it was drying. Colour Pop Are & Be (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Oh Lady (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Bad Habit (LE, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Back Up (P, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Evening Rendezvous (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Notion Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade took an hour to dry down for me! The majority of the color dried down within a minute or two, but there were parts of it that stayed shiny for an hour. It had mostly opaque color payoff, and the texture was thin but fluid and spread easily across the lips, so it was a cinch to get even coverage out of the formula. The color lasted for eight hours but was drying over time. MAC High Drama (P, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Oh Lady (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M501 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Smashbox Femme Fatale (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

ColourPop 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 anytime 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 Flitter, DM, Mugshot Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Flitter Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark rosy pink with a ton of orange-gold shimmer that gives it a more metallic finish. The color dries down to a mostly matte finish, but it is also very shimmery–a matte metallic finish, if you will. The color itself is more uncommon due to the pinker base color and more matte finish, but I wish it applied more evenly and was more opaque (it’s nowhere near “super intense”). The texture was thin and yielded semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation. The dry down did emphasize my lip lines and “cracked” slightly. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was a little drying. Too Faced Metallic Debutante (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Too Faced Metallic Peony (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar).
