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. MAC Really Me (P, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Jouer Rayanne (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). ColourPop Littlestitious (P, $7.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Cava (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, glossier (85% 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, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D L.U.V. (DC, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Wavelength (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Vibrant Violet (P, $7.99) is darker, brighter, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Up the Amp (PiP, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Buxom Ultraviolet (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Exhibition (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). NARS Pussy Control (P, $27.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Crank (P, $18.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Anastasia Rage (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty #098 (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). ColourPop Lychee (LE, $6.50) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay ZZ (P, $18.00) is warmer (80% 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.

privacy please isn’t a color that i thought i’d be a big fan of…. im still not sure how i feel about it. however, it looks exceptionally good on you christine! like, wow!

While the shades themselves are quite pretty, the texture and subsequent cracking are definite deal-breakers for me. Would’ve rather seen these come in the Ultra Satin formula instead.

I think I have Bianca already if that’s the same one in the Kitty mini set they did last year… I’n not a huge fan unfortunately, too pale for me.

Privacy Please looks like a similar shade to their new Molly Ultra Satin Lip, too.

The Ultra Mattes last incredibly well on me, but man, I have to get out my Agave Lip Mask afterwards!

I wonder if Privacy Please had different batches because I didn’t have issues with getting the color even. Though I like the color so much I’d likely just deal with it, ha. This entire release from colourpop was right up my alley except for the 2 crazy bright shades. Great swatches and review as always Christine!
