ColourPop 3-Way Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop 3-Way Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick

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.

ColourPop 3-Way Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a deep, reddish-berry with gold metallic shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on somewhat evenly; it would be better with a second layer for opacity and evenness. This shade lasted for five hours on me and left behind only a subtle stain. It felt slightly drying overall.
