ColourPop Mess Around is a slightly warm-toned, light-medium taupe with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $7.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
ColourPop Mess Around Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a "mid-tone grey beige." It's a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that was lightweight and comfortable to wear. There was a slight tackiness if I pressed my lips together, but it didn't create uneven color. The color wore well for over seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Cold Hard Cash (LE, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).
