ColourPop Cozumel & Molokini Ultra Glossy Lips Reviews & Swatches

Cozumel

ColourPop Cozumel Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a glossy, jelly-like finish. The gloss applied evenly, smoothed out some of my lip lines, and had a very high-shine finish paired with sheer coverage (as marketed). The texture was lightweight, smooth, and plush without being tacky or thick, which made it comfortable to wear. The only downside was it would need to be frequently reapplied as the lasting time was only an hour and a half.

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.

Molokini

ColourPop Molokini Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a light-medium peach with strong, warm yellow undertones and a glossy, jelly-like finish. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and non-sticky but had a plusher, more gel-like feel when applied and worn. It had sheer color coverage, as marketed, and as a result, how it appears on will really depend on the natural pigmentation of one’s lips. This shade lasted well for an hour and a half and felt hydrating over time.

Cozumel is actually quite okay for just something to wear around the house to protect my lips a little bit. It’s very smoothing and evening of lip pigmentation, both are things I need.
