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 Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone plum lilac.” It’s a medium, pinky-lavender with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had rich color payoff with a thin consistency that spread across the lips evenly, and then it dried down to a satin finish that had minor transfer. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Pepper (DC, $5.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Bite Beauty Gin Fizz (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Men Love Mystery (P, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight, bold lipstick with a satin finish” that is “extra intense colour saturation” and “long-wearing,” but the brand is quick to note that it is “not completely kiss proof.” The consistency is very light to lightweight with a thin to mousse-like consistency–they feel a little heavier going on than the Ultra Matte formula, but they don’t feel heavy on. They dry down somewhat, but it isn’t a full, flat dry down like matte liquid lipsticks, and when you press your lips together, there is moderate tackiness there, but I didn’t notice any lifting or separating of color by doing so. Thus far, they have been extremely long-wearing and comfortable to wear for the most part–it’s after ten hours or so that I notice my lips feeling a little dry–but six hours into wear and the colors have looked good post-meals/post-drinking. I think if you like the idea of longer-wearing, mostly matte lip color but find most liquid lipsticks too drying or too flat while not needing an ultra-hydrating formula, you might like these.
