Colour Pop Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to have “hi-shine” with a “non-sticky” texture that “feels amazing” and includes five finishes “from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour.” They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

If I do wind up buying a few of these, I’ll get On Board and Secret Weapon. Both seem to be good ones for me. I still love Champagne Mami, too.
