Staying Up

ColourPop Staying Up Lux Gloss ($8.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. The texture was smooth, fluid, and like a creamy gel, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. It seemed to soften some of my deeper lip lines, too. It had medium coverage in a single layer, which stayed on well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.16 oz. - $50.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "shine" with a "cushiony soft" texture that "hydrates lips." The brand isn't clear on how pigmented or how sheer the formula is intended to be; they instead they have the "perfect amount of colour all in one." Based on what I can infer from promotional images, their marketing, and typical lip gloss claims (in the industry), gloss is typically sheerer coverage rather than opaque, so based on that, I will be rating on the expectation of medium coverage.

The formula has a smooth consistency that was more like a gel-cream, as it felt denser ("cushiony") without being heavy or tacky. I didn't feel like they were the most forgiving, though, as most shades settled into my lip lines to a small degree. The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer, which resulted in the shades looking more similar on than they looked in the tubes (the initial line-up could have been much more diverse as a result). They lasted between two and three hours and were moisturizing to wear.

There was no discernible taste, and they had a sweet, sugary scent.
