Golden Beach

ColourPop Golden Beach Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.17 oz.) includes a peach lipstick and a darker beige lip pencil. They were so-so in quality–they were not particularly flattering to wear (despite exfoliating prior to applying!), so they may not be a good choice for anyone who has drier or flakier lips. I also had issues with the lipstick settling into my lip lines noticeably.

Golden Beach

Golden Beach is a medium-dark peach with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque, somewhat buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it was prone to pulling away along my lip lines, which gave it a patchier appearance. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lighter-weight, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear, but it could have been more flattering to wear. It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

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.

Golden Beach

Golden Beach is a muted, darker beige with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which was easy to build up to full coverage with overlapping strokes when used to line the edges of my lips. It did not apply as evenly when I tried to use it to fill in my lip color (to use more as a base or lip color), and the product was more prone to catching on imperfections, despite feeling more velvety/smooth as it went on. It stayed on well for four hours and felt non-drying.
