ColourPop Jic Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Jic Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly, but it did pull into lip lines noticeably as it was drying down. The texture was comfortable on the lips and didn’t feel clingy (it felt more comfortable than it looked, I suppose!), and it was non-drying. This shade lasted for four hours on me. MAC Metalwork (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Take a Spin (41) (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Lights Out Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium, bronzy gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly, but it could have applied better. This shade had a tendency to emphasize lip lines as the color would dry down in them and then separate afterward. The texture was smooth and thin, comfortable to wear after it dried down to a matte, metallic finish. The color wore well for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Fenty Beauty Banana Frost (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Live Long and Prosper (LE, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NYX Exposed (P, $7.50) is darker (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Surge (LE, $56.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop PYT Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a subdued, medium gold with more tarnished, yellowish tones and a metallic sheen. The texture was thin and spreadable, but it was tough to even this color out–it looked patchy as it dried down. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and I think a second layer would work with this one to even it out. On me, it wore well for five hours and was non-drying. Fenty Beauty Ice Dunes (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC The Enemy Within (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay 3rd Degree (P, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Lights Out (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Golden Party (63) (P, $14.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Live Long and Prosper (LE, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Smog (LE, $18.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Anastasia Chrome Olive (LE, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Salt Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, but its asset was that it applied evenly so the lack of opacity wasn’t as noticeable. The texture was smooth, thin, and spreadable. I was able to wear this shade for five hours, and it was just slightly drying over time. Fenty Beauty Guava Mint (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Smashbox Petal Metal (P, $24.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Metrochrome (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC I'm Glistening (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Cocoa Crush (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Milani Chromattic Addict (01) (LE, $8.99) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Copper Chic (P, $54.00) is darker (80% similar). ColourPop Maneater (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Soleil (LE, $57.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Detox (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Pretty Vulgar Artful Deception (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar).

Formula Overview

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “super intense” with “high impact metallic pearls” and a “non-drying formula” that “is extremely long-wearing” (but it is “not completely transfer resistant”). Of ColourPop’s liquid lipstick formulas, this had the most slip and least pigmentation (across all four shades)–more semi-opaque, though they were buildable. The consistency spreads well across the lips, but it could look more even; I think the darker coloring of the shades made some of the translucency less apparent. They dry down to a mostly transfer-proof finish, and they are flexible and comfortable to wear. I got between four and six hours of wear with these, and they seemed to break down easily with food compared to the Ultra Satins/Mattes. Two of the four shades were a little drying, while the other two were non-drying.

I have JIC and PTY but I haven’t wore either of them yet.Salt is really pretty!I may have to get this one also!I have heard just from watching several different Utube videos and reading other reviews that the formation on these is pretty inconsistent.Nikkietutorials hated her first batch of these they had weak pigmentation.Jeffree Star loved his first batch with Maneater it was very pigmented then him and Manny MUA did a video where they had tried on JIC and Flitter and those weren’t good for them.So I hope Colourpop finds a way to produce these in a way which they all are made with the same consistency and qualiy

JIC and Salt are gorgeous! The other 2 just seem…too gold or yellowish in tone for me personally. I will say that Salt made it onto the “wishlist* with Flitter, though! I used to wear lipstick in the 90’s that looked very much like Salt.

I love the color of JIC but I don’t think my 62 year old lips would look good with a metallic dried down into all the nooks and crannies. There are just sometimes when I really wish these types of products had been available back in “the day”.

It’s interesting how some of these are dupes of each other! I would wear these mainly as toppers, and I think it’s easy enough to find similar colors in a traditional lip gloss formula (hellooo ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips!) , which is also more forgiving and more hydrating. I don’t care that much for liquid lipsticks, and with fall/winter coming, I don’t want anything drying on my already dry lips.

In some ways, I think a few are a little cooler/warmer or lighter/darker, but they have a similar finish and tone that they’re closer than other things.

I must say that even if these lip colours have their issues, I really like them. three out of the four made it to my wishlist.
The only lip prooduct I have from Colour Pop is Flitter, and I love it. It applies evenly and is opaque, so I think Nika99 is right about the inconsistancy in the range. Pity, I really hope they manage to fix this.
