Princess Aurora

ColourPop Princess Aurora Lux Lipstick ($10.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Lightweight, creamy but good adhesion (not clingy)
  • Comfortable to wear, very slight settling (not noticeable at normal viewing distance)
  • Average-wearing (4.5 hours), hydrating

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.12 oz. - $83.33 Per Ounce

The formula that is supposed to be a "creamy-matte" that "glides on like butter, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts so long you'll forget you're even wearing it." The majority of the shades were quite pigmented with full color payoff in a single stroke with a few in the more semi-opaque coverage range.

The texture was, on average, smooth, lightly creamy, and not too thick or too thin, so there was no tugging during application but the color didn't feel slippery while worn, which made them easier to apply straight from the tube and low-maintenance on the lips.

They tend to dry and wear down to a soft matte finish within one to three hours of wear, and while they are very lightweight on, they hug the lips more as they become more matte (compared to initial feel). The wear time has been between four and six hours for most shades, and most shades were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
