Morning Glory

Colour Pop Morning Glory Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for oz.) is a rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen with faint sparkle. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The liquid lipstick had a lightweight, thin, spreadable consistency that wasn’t watery but never felt heavy or thick going on. Because it doesn’t have the total dry-down of the Ultra Matte formula, it has more flexibility and is more comfortable to wear. This shade wore nicely for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Nimbus

Colour Pop Nimbus Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for oz.) is a deep plum with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was thin but had moderate slip–it felt a little oily to me with how it slid across my lips during application. The color applied patchily to the inner portion of my lips and sank into my lip lines noticeably. The pigmentation was decent, but it was surprisingly under-pigmented compared to most of ColourPop’s liquid lipsticks (and it was supposed to be pigmented). It wore lasted well for five and a half hours, but there was some additional product that sank into my lip lines over time, though the formula itself wasn’t drying at least.

Morning Glory lives up to the name! Also, it looks like nothing else I have in a lipstick here, so there’s that!

I do wish Nimbus would have performed better. A very deep vampy metallic lipstick like that would be a winter wonderland on my lips!

I love Morning Glory but Nimbus would be stunning on my daughter and the prefect holiday shade but way too patchy. I can only use so many metallic/shimmer lips and picked up several from PMG Labs so I am set. If I were to place a ColourPop order I would get Morning Glory though. It is pretty and the shade is right up my alley.

Morning Glory is stunning. Nimbus is actually more my color, but I’m less a fan of that formula, and I would definitely want it to be more pigmented.

Ooo, Morning Glory looks so nice! Not to heavy, glossy or defining of the lip lines. Thanks, may consider if I ever purchase something else from them. Hope it stays in the collection.
