Dream House

ColourPop Dream House Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a limited edition set featuring a lipstick and lip pencil. They were decent in quality, but they weren’t the most forgiving of lip texture or lip lines, so that would be what I’d keep in mind if those are deal-breakers for you! They were semi-opaque to mostly opaque in coverage and longer-wearing.

Dream House

Dream House is a medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips but had a tendency to separate along my deeper lip lines and cling to texture visibly. The consistency was creamy, smooth, and dense, though not heavy to wear. It lasted well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.12 oz. - $58.33 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.

Dream House

Dream House is a muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage in a single stroke, which was buildable to full coverage with more overlapping strokes. The texture was lightly creamy and smooth, which helped it glide comfortably over my lips, even for filling in. It separated a bit along my deeper lip lines and didn’t apply as evenly as ideal, but it wasn’t too far outside what I’d expect for a lip pencil. It wore well for five hours and felt non-drying.

Since this one screams “Barbie” to the hills, I’ll probably snatch it up. I do wish that the quality was somewhat better, but my trusty MAC Prep & Prime Lips can make it work!

Wish they would separate the liner and the lipstick. I never wear liners so I feel like I’m just paying double for the lipstick although I love this color and did buy the set.
