Candy Floss

ColourPop Candy Floss Blotted Lips ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium, peachy brown with warm, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium to nearly opaque pigmentation–it was definitely one of the more pigmented shades in the line-up. The lipstick applied evenly and smoothly with a slightly creamier texture compared to other shades, which might have been responsible for the less matte finish as well. There was a smidgen of color that pulled into my deeper lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was non-drying.

The Blotted Lip formula is described as a “sheer matte lipstick” that has “buildable” coverage that ranges from “light to medium” and has a “lightweight” feel. The formula had an interesting texture–firmer, waxy but velvety like a more silicone-heavy formula would feel–so it glided on with ease after it warmed up against the lips but initially felt quite firm in the tube. They look more like a lip stain than lipstick on the lips, as the consistency is thin and adheres well to lips–without emphasizing the texture of them–and the semi-sheer to medium coverage reinforces the stain-like appearance. The wear was average (usually around four hours) but was non-drying.

Drip

ColourPop Drip Blotted Lips ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a muted, medium pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to medium pigmentation that applied evenly and sat well on the lips. The consistency was smooth, almost velvety as it glided on the lips but still felt weightless and thin as it sat on the lips. It stayed on well for four hours and was non-drying.

Brain Freeze

ColourPop Brain Freeze Blotted Lips ($5.00 for 0.035 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to medium pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though the edges could have been better and I did have faint color slip into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and did not tug on the lips after the first second of applying (then it felt quite velvety). It wore well for three and a half hours on me and was non-drying.

Oh I really like Drip and Bee’s Knees. Bee’s Knees especially looks like I’ll be buying it soon.
I really like your earrings too Christine!

I wore Candy Floss yesterday, like the color. Yes, it’s quite pigmented, didn’t get much of the faded, blotted lip look at all, but the color goes well with many of the peachy shadows that are on trend right now.

Really not a formula I would gravitate towards. I get the concept, but I think the dullness and finish would not be flattering on me. I love bright mattes, but the colour punch has to be there. Your eye makeup in the photos looks fantastic!

I just love the blotted lip formula but all of the ones I bought broke out of the tube. I just pop them back in there though and continue using them!

If I would have waited just *one* more day to place my CP order, I would have seen this, and added Candy Floss, Drip and Bee’s Knees! These look so comfortable! The description of how they feel worn reminds me of a non-glossy tinted lip balm. Perfect for summer!

I brought Sucker Blotted lip and it’s a good color on me. The formula not bad but doesn’t last as long as I like a lip product to but I’m sure I’ll enjoy wearing it. I might pick up Bee’s Knees next Colour Pop order.

FYI, Christine, you have one those scammy giftcard ads popping up that covers the whole screen and gives you the whole pop-up box bleh. 🙁

Hi Danielle,

We don’t allow those type of ads, so it would be an ad that is breaking the rules – if you can send me a screen shot, I can try to see if there’s a way to track it down but with hundreds of networks, it is really hard to find them 🙁 They are usually caught sooner rather than later by the network it somehow passed through.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
