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). KVD Beauty Berlin (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC To Matte with Love (P, $21.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Tarte So Fetch (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Toucan (LE, $7.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty L'Enfer (P, $58.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Selfish (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M301 (DC, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Pat McGrath Psycho Candy (LE, $40.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Bikini (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar).

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 Nearly Neon Purple (LE, $26.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Lavender Jam (DC, $26.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Anastasia Violet (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (85% similar). MAC 4Eva (P, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (80% similar). KVD Beauty Roxy (P, $19.00) is warmer, glossier (80% 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.

Christine hi! I know this is an old post, I was just trying to find a way to comment to you. I was wondering if you ever considered reviewing more Nyx products, specifically their liquid suede lip cream, soft matte lip cream and lip lingerie? They have awesome liquid lipsticks that are often dupes to high ends, as well as their eyeshadows. Thanks! πŸ™‚

I love the look of these! However, the formula doesn’t agree with my lips. It’s just too dry. Not for everyone, or even most people, but if like me you have constant very dry lips then they might not be for you. Which is a shame because there are loads of awesome shades. Maybe just try one to see how your lips fare. ?

Beautiful! I want both of these, even though I already have a dupe for Brooklyn (NARS Greta). One of the wonderful things about these Colour Pop lippies is how easily mixable they are. Now it doesn’t matter that Who’s Zoomin’ Who was such a disappointment!
