ColourPop Self Love Club Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches
Self Love Club
ColourPop Self Love Club Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.50 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark red with strong, cool blue undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, but it needed a second pass in order to achieve full coverage. The texture seemed very thin, lightweight, and a little on the watery side, though it applied evenly and didn’t dry down and separate along my lip lines. It stayed on well for over six hours, left a stain behind but felt drying after six hours of wear time.

It is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time.
Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal.
Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

Of course, the first dupe is from a recent Colourpop release… I don’t know why they continue to dupe themselves many times over! It is pretty, though.
Simply an AMAZING looking red liquid lipstick. Wowzers! However….i sure am glad that I have MAC Blue Blood instead, because of your mention of it feeling drying near the end of its wear.
Hmmm – the finish looks a little too mattish for me and I think ti would be a little drying on the lips. I love the colour though.
This is an amazing shade of red. Too bad it’s in the hit-and-miss (for me, anyway) ultra matte formula.
