ColourPop Bianca & Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fully opaque color payoff with a thin, spreadable consistency that yielded even coverage. The liquid lipstick dried down to a fully matte finish, but it had a very textured appearance where the lines of the lips were emphasized–it made my lips look drier than they actually were. The color lasted for six hours and was somewhat drying. Jouer Rayanne (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Really Me (P, $17.50) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid lavender pink.” It’s a bright, medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but the texture was thin and very, very quick to dry down, which made it harder to apply and get even, smooth coverage. Once it dried down, it revealed a more textured finish, where the lip lines are emphasized and “crack” when you smile/move your lips. The color flaked away as it wore away, over a five hour period. The formula was also drying. Bite Beauty #088 (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $17.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

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 any time 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 Are & Be Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Are & Be Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Are & Be Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich mauve plum.” It’s a soft, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a thin, spreadable texture that went on evenly. It dried down to a flat, matte finish that did emphasize the texture of my lips somewhat. It lasted for seven hours and faded more noticeably from the center of the mouth for me. The formula was lightly drying. Makeup Geek Tomboy (P, $12.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar).

ColourPop Cheap Thrills Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark mauvey lavender with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It looks a lot darker and cooler in tone when it dries down than it looks in the tube (I did a few double takes there). The texture was thin, almost watery, but applied smoothly and evenly with full color coverage. It dried down to a a transfer-free finish, but it had a slight sheen to it–it wasn’t quite matte and had a very, very subtle tackiness to it for about an hour. The color lasted for six hours with a bit of color flaking more from the center of the lip. It was lightly drying over time. NARS Pussy Control (P, $27.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

It had very nearly opaque color coverage–you can see my lip freckle just peeking through–that covered evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy and applied without dragging on the lips.

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “translucent peachy tone.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and a sparkling, glittery finish. It has a “Glitter Sheer” finish, which is nice to read, because it explains the coverage level of this particular shade well–it’s semi-sheer. It was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it is a shade that could be patted over another eyeshadow for a glittery finish or worn all-over the lid as a sparkling wash. I liked it near the inner tear duct for its brightening effect. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing slightly, and there was minimal fall out over time (but still, there was a bit). Too Faced Nude Beach (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Pop (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Natasha Denona Galaxia (112K) (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Starry Eyed (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Tulle (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Sailor (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Knight Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft, silky black.” It’s a medium-dark black with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had a thin, lightly velvety texture that glided across the skin well without losing its intensity/opacity. On me, it was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Chanel Tisse Smoky #4 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Black Market (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Volcano Fairy Wren (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 19 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Laura Mercier Tuxedo (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Vanity Fair Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned silvery taupe.” It’s a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth texture that blended beautifully on the skin without losing its initial intensity. The color was still fade- and crease-free after ten hours of wear. MAC Earthly (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Underground (DC, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Mystify (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Ring-a-ling (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Tails & Top Hats #3 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Chrome (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #3 (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

ColourPop Brooklyn & So Wavy Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Brooklyn Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright hot pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark warm, fuchsia pink with a semi-matte finish. It was rich color payoff with full coverage that applied evenly. The consistency was thin and then “dried” to a mostly matte finish–less satiny than many others shades in the formula–that was lightly tacky but didn’t lift color when I pressed my lips together. The color was still going strong after seven hours of wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Possession (Right) (LE, ) is glossier (95% similar). MAC To Matte with Love (P, $21.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D Berlin (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar).

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

ColourPop So Wavy Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant blue purple.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark violet purple with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a thin, spreadable consistency, but the texture was noticeably thinner than other shades in the same formula. It was more prone to emphasizing lip lines, and it’s one that I would recommend applying a second pass of for greater opacity and a smoother, overall finish. The color still wore for over six hours with even fading, but it was a little drying. Bite Beauty Lavender Jam (P, $26.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $17.50) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Purple (LE, $26.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (85% similar). Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (80% similar). MAC 4Eva (P, $17.50) is lighter, warmer (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.

ColourPop Spritz Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Spritz Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Spritz Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true bubblegum pink.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a thin, almost runny, texture that was easy to apply and then “set” to a lightly tacky consistency. It sat fairly well on the lips without being heavy, and the color didn’t lift when you press your lips (despite the tackiness). There is minimal transfer, but it isn’t completely dry.

It had rich, opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that was thin but not so thin that it looked streaky when applied. The texture “dried” to a satin finish and had a light tackiness to it with minor transfer. It wore for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

ColourPop Naked Ladies Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright coral red.” It’s a bright, medium coral-red with a semi-matte finish. It had excellent coverage with full opacity, while the texture was thin, spreadable, and comfortable to wear. I noticed this one had more of a semi-matte finish and very little sheen compared to most of the shades I’ve tried in this range, but it isn’t clingy on. This shade was still going strong after six hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating over that period. Bite Beauty Pickled Ginger (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% 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.
