ColourPop Boa, Back Up, Climax Matte X Lippie Stix

ColourPop Boa Matte X Lippie Stix
ColourPop Boa Matte X Lippie Stix

ColourPop Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is supposed to have “full coverage” in one stroke that is “long-wearing” with “the smoothest, most velvety glide” while still retaining a “super matte finish.” The formula glides on really well, and they have a smooth, lightweight texture that feels thin and has a more powdery, matte finish on the lips. Some are really comfortable to wear for most of the time, a few are somewhat drying earlier on and may look drier or “cracked,” though the majority look good applied. They are longer-wearing; not quite as long as the Ultra Matte or Ultra Satin range but longer than the average lipstick. I found most shades that I’ve tested thus far (about half the range) to be comfortable for most of the time. The formula held up fairly well to eating and very well for drinking/sipping out of a cup or mug. As they are thin, they don’t really slide or move around on my lips, so once they do start to fade or lose color, it’s better to re-apply than try to smooth back into place. The formula has a light vanilla scent but no discernible taste. They come in the same type (and amount) as the regular Lippie Stix range, so it’s worth noting that they contain less than a standard lipstick tube at 0.035 oz. (the average tube is around 0.10 oz.).

Neat discovery: the consistent, thinner (but opaque) formula makes them very easy to blend into each other for an ombre lip effect.

ColourPop Boa Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff, but the texture “cracked” visibly on me from the get-go, even though it had seemingly good coverage and didn’t drag at all (very velvety applied). The color wore six hours with the color still remaining “cracked” but didn’t seem to work into lip lines from there. It was drying after six hours. Makeup Geek Arabesque (LE, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Pepper (DC, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $17.50) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Seesaw (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Koala (DC, $6.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Back Up Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, purpled plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with even, smooth coverage that applied without tugging or dragging on the lips. The color lasted for seven hours and was lightly drying. MAC Evening Rendezvous (LE, $17.50) is darker (95% similar). MAC Dancing Flowers (LE, $17.50) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Tomboy (P, $12.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Are & Be (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Viper (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). NARS London Calling (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Makeup Geek Urbanista (P, $12.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (80% similar). Pat McGrath Antidote (LE, $38.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Climax Matte X Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a slightly muted, deep purpled-blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but it could have been richer for true, one-stroke opaque coverage. The texture felt smooth and glided on without dragging, but the thinner consistency seemed prone to emphasizing lip lines and natural texture of my lips. The color lasted for six and a half hours with slightly uneven fading overall. The biggest upside is the non-liquid format makes it easier to apply around the edges. Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Indigo-go (LE, $17.50) is lighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Anastasia Cobalt (P, $18.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Echo (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Midnight Troll (LE, $17.50) is lighter, brighter, glossier (80% similar). Kat Von D Poe (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Wild Child (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar). Kat Von D Dagger (P, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar).

Best ColourPop Super Shock Shadows — Top 25

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented. From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadows (Part 2)

L'Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow
L’Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “soft, velvety” in texture with “intense pigments for exquisite color richness” and “lasts all day.” The texture is incredibly soft; to the point where I’m not sure these would travel as well as your average powder eyeshadow. The lighter, more matte shades are very white-based and can look chalky on my skin tone but should work better on fairer skin tones or coupled with a smoothing primer. Most of the shades were fairly pigmented and blendable on the lid with good adhesion without a primer with a few exceptions. Unsurprisingly, neutrals were more consistently higher-performing than the bolder/more colorful shades. I did run into wear issues, as all the shades I tried either faded and/or creased within six hours of wear, so I would recommend a primer with these. Initially, they reminded me of formulas like Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow, Kat Von D Metal Crush, etc., but while these have a similar velvety, smooth feel, they are looser once you touch your brush to them.

L’Oreal Petite Perle Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light white with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a fairly smooth texture, but it was harder to apply on the lid without it applying unevenly (almost like the color bunched up/thickened in places). The color started to crease after six hours of wear. Sephora + Pantone Universe Antique White (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Crystal Avalanche (DC, $16.00) is cooler, better quality (95% similar). NARS Rue Allent (Left) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Midnight Hour #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #2 (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Zoeva Spun Pearl (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Vapour (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Roadstripe (LE, $19.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). NYX Frostbite (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Sugarpill Ice Angel (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Green Promenade Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark green with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had a really soft, lightly loosened consistency in the pan, so there was some fall out during application, but it adhered well enough that I didn’t have issues with further fall out during wear (though it creased after six hours). bareMinerals Midnight Luminance (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Sweet & Sour #2 (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Peacock (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Silver Sun (P, $20.00) is warmer (80% similar). Giorgio Armani Onyx (05) (P, $39.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). NYX Jaded (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Teal Couture Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark green-teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a drier, firmer texture that made it harder to get decent color payoff out of it. I also had issues with applying it to my lid, as it didn’t seem to blend out without becoming patchy/uneven. Urban Decay Fringe (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Too Glam (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Watt (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Junkie (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Flower Shop (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Sequin (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Smashbox Pacific (LE, ) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Natasha Denona Ice Blue (143CP) (LE, ) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever I238 Blue Cedar (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Banana Daiquiri (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Shimmermoss (DC, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Sea Mist (P, $6.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Grand Bleu Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, but I found the color to be more challenging to apply and blend out without it becoming somewhat patchy. It started to crease after six hours of wear.
Sephora Aja (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #6 (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Dina (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

L’Oreal Meet Me in Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark gray with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, velvety-smooth texture that applied well and diffused nicely on the skin. This shade started to have signs of fading after six hours of wear. Kat Von D Smoke (Contour) (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M110 Cement (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

L’Oreal Noir C’est Noir Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.

The color looked faded after six hours of wear. Viseart Chroma #3 (P, )(100% similar). Anastasia Noir (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar).

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). MAC Really Me (P, $17.50) is lighter, glossier (95% similar).

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. Urban Decay ZZ (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Violet (LE, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

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.
