ColourPop Mess Around Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Mess Around Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Mess Around Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone grey beige.” It’s a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that was lightweight and comfortable to wear. There was a slight tackiness if I pressed my lips together, but it didn’t create uneven color. The color wore well for over seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Cold Hard Cash (LE, $19.50) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Stone (P, $19.50) is darker, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Strut (P, $7.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Pillow Talk (P, $6.00) is lighter (85% similar).

MAC Styled in Sepia (LE, $19.50) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Chi (LE, $6.50) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Fenty Beauty I Quit (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). Shiseido Rose Syrup (BR721) (DC, $28.00) is lighter (80% similar). Sephora Vacation Goals (59) (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (80% similar).

ColourPop TooLips Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deepened plum brown.” It’s a deep, muted plummy-brown with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was totally opaque, while the product applied with smooth, even coverage and was a cinch to apply. The color wore on and on–it was still going strong after eight hours of wear–and was comfortable and non-drying to wear. Coloured Raine Soul (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Jaclyn Cosmetics Control Freak (DC, $18.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Chilly Chili (LE, $6.50) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Teeny Tiny (P, $6.50) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Tarte Rave (P, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar). Makeup Geek Socialite (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Bobbi Brown Bond (P, $37.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

I love these! You solved my dilemma for my lip look tonight.I’ve been wanting to wear myTF Honeymoon palette. I think I’ll try it out. 🙂

These are really interesting! It seems like, when you see colors like this, the undertones are usually warm, not cool! I think that Mess Around would be too light for me and TooLips would be too dark, but mixed together they might be just right! Several colors in this range make me want to try mixing them.

Oh, I have to have TooLips! Probably Messing Around, too! I am LOVING these Liquid Satins!!! I have a feeling that I’ve just met my newest addiction, LoL!
