So Emo-tional

ColourPop So Emo-tional Lux Liquid Lip ($9.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with cool undertones and a satin finish.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable coverage
  • Very lightweight, thin, mousse-like consistency
  • Spreadable but quick-drying, so work fast!
  • Dried down but had flexibility
  • Long-wearing (4.5 hours), non-drying

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.17 oz. - $52.94 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.
