Always Sunny

ColourPop Always Sunny Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light, peachy gold with warm undertones and flecks of sparkle through the more translucent base. It had a glossy finish that was shiny, plush without being tacky, and comfortable to wear.

I appreciated how the formula didn’t emphasize my lip lines, and there was an even dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle. The color was quite sheer, and it only lasted for two hours on me, though it was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.11 oz. - $54.55 Per Ounce

The formula 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.

Sun Soaked

ColourPop Sun Soaked Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light peach with warm, orange undertones and flecks of sparkle. It had a light dusting of sparkle, and it didn’t distribute as evenly as I’ve experienced with other shades in the range.

The coverage was sheer, and it was marketed as a sheer coverage product, but it may look drastically different from person to person due to how much of the natural lip color comes through. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and non-sticky without emphasizing my lip lines. It stayed on well for two hours but was moisturizing.

Not bad, but nothing great either. Just too sheer for me. I would have liked Always Sunny if it had just a little more pigmentation or something.
