ColourPop x Becky G Payasa Lip Duo Review & Swatches

Payasa

Colour Pop Payasa Lip Duo ($14.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a matte, liquid lipstick and matching lip pencil. The two performed similarly, so unfortunately, the liner didn’t entirely solve the liquid lipstick’s problems when the two were used together.

Both had good coverage, but not opaque in one layer, and they did not apply as evenly as they should have. The two together were better than either alone, but I’d opt for a better lip pencil (something creamier and with better application for all-over, as that is what would be needed to improve the application of the liquid lipstick) underneath. The products are only being sold as set as far as I could tell!

Payasa

Payasa is a rich, burgundy red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It wasn’t fully dried down after 15 minutes (mostly around the edges), so those who want/need transfer-proof finish from the get-go should gently blot the edges. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly, but there were areas where it applied better and worse along with a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines.

The consistency was lightweight, fluid, and spread well–almost a little too readily. It stayed on for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$6.50/0.11 oz. - $59.09 Per Ounce

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.

Payasa

Payasa is a medium-dark burgundy-red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The pencil had enough slip to work well as a traditional lip liner for getting crisp edges, but it didn’t have the creaminess or intensity necessary to work as well for all-over color.

It tugged noticeably during application for all-over color, and the product did not apply evenly and bunched up in places, which gave the actual surface an uneven appearance. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage and truer-to-pencil color with a second layer. This shade lasted for over six hours but felt a little drying and clingy.

Just reading the words “non-drying” made my heart go pitter patter! I mean, hey, it’s not a perfect lipstick, but just that part is a huge improvement. The shade is gorgeous!

I love the shade – but not the lip gloss formula. The crayon looked hard work too. Having looked at the dupe list, CP has the beautiful Tiana in the lux lippie range. That suits me.
