Penny Pincher

ColourPop Penny Pincher Lux Liquid Lip ($8.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It appeared lighter applied than initially swatched. The texture was thin, very fluid, which made it spreadable across my lips, but there was a bit of product that settled into my deeper lip lines. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for four hours on me and felt neither drying nor hydrating.

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.

Tried and True

ColourPop Tried and True Lux Liquid Lip ($8.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, coppery-brown with warmer, more orange undertones and a satin sheen. The finish dried down to more of a satin/semi-matte finish and took about a half hour to get to a more matte, transfer-resistant finish.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and very spreadable, and the wand delivered medium, buildable pigmentation in one layer. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and was non-drying.

On a Roll

ColourPop On a Roll Lux Liquid Lip ($8.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep red with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had a light dry down to more of a semi-matte finish, which eventually wore down to a fully matte, more transfer-resistant finish (about an hour of wear).

The texture was very lightweight, spreadable, and thin but delivered nearly opaque coverage in a single layer (but it was supposed to be buildable!). It stayed on well for five hours and felt non-drying over time.

I’m really feeling On A Roll for a nice rich, warmer red than average! Has that autumnal feel to it.
Tried & True is also beautiful and toasty!

Loving the lighter Tried & True. I normally prefer a traditional lipstick to liquid but it’s so affordable, why not? Also love the ethics of this brand.
