Angel City

ColourPop Angel City Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, bright red-plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. The lipstick was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. There was very slight settling in my lip lines after application, though I couldn’t tell from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be a "creamy-matte" that "glides on like butter, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts so long you'll forget you're even wearing it." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Unravelled

ColourPop Unravelled Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, plummy berry with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly across my lips in a fluid stroke. The texture was lightweight, adhered evenly to lips, felt thin without being clingy, and comfortable to wear. It lasted for five and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

Nu Wave

ColourPop Nu Wave Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium pinky-red with cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single stroke with a glossier, more emollient finish that gave it a stronger sheen but made the color separate a bit as I applied it. It just didn’t have the same smooth, cream-like finish as most of the Lux shades have had for me. The brightness and depth of color helped minimize the appearance of imperfections in person. This shade lasted for six hours, left a slight stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing.

Angel City and NuWave tick all the marks for me which is why I have multiple dupes of each. Really love the eye look also, Christine.

OMG, I seriously love all three of them! At some point I’ll have to break down and buy a CP Lux Lipstick, though choosing the shade won’t be easy.

These sure are gorgeous and perfect shades for spring! *Sigh* ….Rouge Vie, Sí, Sí Me and a couple tubes of UD Catfight fill all 3 slots, though. Oh well, I’m happy for those who do pick up any of these!

I picked up unravelled, reverie,afterglow, and dream easy and I really love the colors in this collection. Great coverage and non-drying. Love the lux lipsticks

Brands like KVD should be embarrassed at the quality of their lipsticks when lower price brands come out with nearly perfect ones.
