ColourPop Kiss the Dusk Lux Liquid Lipstick Duo Review & Swatches

Kiss the Dusk

Colour Pop Kiss the Dusk Lux Liquid Lip Duo ($14.00 for 0.34 oz.) includes a darker, cool-toned red and a darker (but more muted) orange, both had more natural finishes that wore down to a soft matte finish after an hour or two (or if you blotted!). They were consistent in feel and application as other shades the range, but they were more pigmented than marketed, which was their big “con.”

Daily Dose

Daily Dose is a medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was a slight sheen that wore down to a soft matte finish within an hour or two of wear. The texture was lightweight, thin, and almost watery, but it spread evenly and smoothly over my lips with only a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines (not enough to be noticeable in person). It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, though, which was was more than claimed, so that may be good or bad depending on your preferences. This shade stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.17 oz. - $47.06 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "medium buildable coverage" that has a "soft, diffused" effect. It's a more amped up take on their Blotted Lips concept or a slightly "washed out" take on their Ultra Matte/Ultra Satin range. The formula is much thinner--almost weightless--and spreads evenly with a single layer. I'd argue that most shades were often closer to semi-opaque rather than medium and buildable--and I used only what was on the doe-foot applicator to apply (without going back for more) for both top and bottom lips.

The consistency was airier, light, thin, and spreadable with a soft dry down that didn't feel like it was wholly locked in (like Ultra Mattes) but had significantly less transfer than a traditional lipstick (or even the Ulta Satins). They were not the most forgiving of lip texture or lip lines, but they were more flattering than most formulas I've tried that are similar in effect and coverage. Some shades had more of a matte finish shortly after application while others had subtle shine that wore down to a matte finish within an hour or less.

Longevity ran anywhere from three to six hours with some shades leaving subtle stains behind, and the formula felt mostly non-drying for me. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Big Bang

Big Bang is a rich, medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that delivered smooth, even coverage in a single layer–though that was more pigmentation than claimed. For a sheerer effect, you’ll want to dab some in the center of the lips and use a fingertip or a lip brush to diffuse less product. The texture was lightweight, thin, and almost watery, though there was an airiness to it. It wore well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was non-drying over time.

Of the pair, I really only “need” Daily Dose. Which I love a lot. I do have MAC Morange, but this seems quite a bit deeper and more of a soft matte. Good for summertime for sure!
