ColourPop Spritz, Botanical, Naked Ladies Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

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. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me and was very lightly drying. Coloured Raine Charmed (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M200 (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop Botanical Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon peachy coral.” It’s a bright, light-medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. 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.

ColourPop Hype Girl & Crumpet Lippie Stix

ColourPop Hype Girl Lippie Stix
ColourPop Hype Girl Lippie Stix

ColourPop Hype Girl Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is described as a “soft coral nude.” It’s a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the consistency was on the thicker side and highlighted the natural texture of the lips. The lipstick gathered into lip lines within the initial two hours of wear, while the color hung around for closer to four altogether. It was lightly drying towards the end. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Ace (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Give In (LE, $17.50) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Crumpet Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is described as a “bright yellow pink.” It’s a bright, light-medium pink with subtle, yellow undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but the texture was thick and very slippery, which resulted in uneven application. I’m not sure if this will feather/bleed on others, but there is a ton of slip, and I found the color to slide around and look streaky most of the time. It lasted for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Colour Pop Monkey (DC, $5.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Long Legged & Fabulous (LE, $17.50) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Claudia (P, $34.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Kumquat (LE, $24.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Summer 2016 Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel aqua.” It’s a bright, bluish aqua with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was a little thin and a bit drier than some of the other ColourPop eyeshadows, though not actually dry. I found it hard to layer this one for opaque coverage, unfortunately, even with fingertips. On me, it lasted for ten hours. Make Up For Ever S208 Baby Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #1 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Flower Shop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vibrant blue green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark teal with subtle, green tones that runs neutral-to-cool in tone. The finish was more metallic with a blackened base (I think this is why it appeared more muted). The texture was very emollient and a little thin, so it spread well across the skin and blended out well, but it did have a tendency to sheer out. The color was still going strong after ten hours of wear. MAC Steamy (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Dream (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Luckfully Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright cobalt blue.” It’s a medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth, and blendable texture that was easy to use. On me, it wore well for ten hours. Inglot #428 (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Diving in Australia (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Natasha Denona Blue Spruce (02M) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Wattles Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dusty beige pink.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It was nicely pigmented with a lightly creamy, blendable consistency that applied with full coverage on the lid. It was still going strong after ten hours of wear! MAC Lingering Dusk (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Moonlight Pink (118) (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy, velvety consistency in the pot. It blended out well and adhered nicely to bare lids. The color was still wearing well after ten hours. Morphe Pukey (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M660 Speculous (P, $21.00)(100% similar). MAC Outre (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar).

Anastasia Raw Sienna (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (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 Alchemy Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Pretty Bonnes Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Pretty Bonnes Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Pretty Bonnes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “creamy ivory with subtle gold duochrome effect.” It’s a light, creamy beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. I don’t really notice a duochrome effect in person. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, and smooth on the skin. It is most blendable with fingertips (I think the warmth of fingers helps), but I had no issues using a brush–it just took a little longer. It has mostly opaque coverage applied with fingertips and then more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when used with brushes (as described). The texture didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight hours. Tarte Spellbound Glow (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Bal Masque (LE, $120.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). L'Oreal Rose (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Lightscapade (P, $33.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop The Golden Child Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft, coppery gold.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque coverage applied with a fingertip and then semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable covoerage applied with a stippling brush. The consistency was smooth, very emollient, and blended easily on the skin both with brushes and fingertips. The color wore well for nine hours on me. Estee Lauder Modern Mercury (LE, $65.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz (P, $46.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Superb (P, $33.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Tawny Glow (P, $48.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nude Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Tourmaline (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Riviera (P, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). Chanel Golden Sun (280) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Thames Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned rosy pink.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer and more clay-like–dry and difficult to really get color out of except with a hard press of fingertips. I couldn’t use this well with a brush, as so little color transferred onto a brush. It seemed more like a cream blush that had been left open for too long and had dried out than a just-opened one, unfortunately. It was harder to blend on the skin as a result. Once on, the color lasted for nine hours. Bite Beauty Macaroon (P, $24.00) is glossier (95% similar). Makeup Geek Rendezvous (P, $10.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Afterglow (Blush) (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bicoastal (Bottom) (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Stila Pink Rose Blush (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (Blush) (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop New Lowes (LE, $8.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Chroma (P, $23.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Milani Pink Play #2 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Black Opal Tulip (P, $8.95) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Milani Tea Rose (08) (P, $8.99) is warmer (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Matte Sweet Apple (P, $24.00) is warmer (85% similar).

ColourPop HoneyDude & Teaspoon Creme Gel Liners

ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Honeydude Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “creamy warm nude.” It’s a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, and it adhered well to both the waterline and lower lash line. It wore well for seven hours on the waterline, nine hours on the lower lash line. MAC Risque (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Swanly (P, $18.00)(90% similar). LORAC Nude (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Rue Bonaparte (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teaspoon Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “intense emerald green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single pass, which may have been due to the texture that felt a little drier compared to other shades I’ve tried in this formula. It builds up fairly well, so opaque coverage is possible. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Teaspoon (LE, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Lemmy (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Sephora Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Descanso & Teaspoon Creme Gel Colours

ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour
ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour

ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and bluish micro-glitter. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy consistency that wasn’t too heavy, nor did it take too long to dry (it is quicker-drying). The color is so vibrant and pops well on the lash line, but I had issues with the glitter and color flaking on me over time, even though much of the color remained visible for over eight hours. NARS Blue Lotus (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Buxom Door's Unlocked (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teaspoon Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as an “intense emerald green.” It’s a medium-dark green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a thin, creamy texture that tended to sheer out when applied, so it is better applied in deliberately thin layers or in shorter strokes to maximize opacity. The consistency looks drier in the swatch than it felt and worked out in person. The color wore for over eight hours on me. Kat Von D Lemmy (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Teaspoon (LE, $5.00) is more muted (95% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Sephora Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar).
