These look very nice! Planning to snag Bootie and Poppin’ on the near future. However, I suspect that some shades will be drier than others judging by the pics.

Wow, these look right up my alley! Love the pigmentation on these. Since they are matte, they do look on the drier side, but I actually prefer that because I always put SFP lip balm on top. So glad these are permanent. Will grab Climax for sure -I’ve always wanted to try a blue-purple lippie and $5 is perfect in case it doesn’t work out. Have enough dupes for the gorgeous Chateau but eyeing Back Up , Hollywood Blvd, Camo, and a couple of the orange colors.

I don’t think I have developed enough adult reasoning skills to admit there is any such thing as enough dupes for gorgeous Chateau. Y/Y. Lots of nice choices, and I love CP permanents. Miss too many LEs.

These look a lot better than I’d anticipated. Still, don’t think my lips could take something so dry. They split/crack almost instantly, if you just LOOK at them the wrong way!

I’m not comfortable in this type of color, but Climax looks awesome. Especially since blue lip products tend to perform poorly.

I may check out Cami and Pillow Talk.

I’m looking forward to the reviews! This is the first ColourPop formula that’s gotten some truly mixed reviews among the social media stars (the Ultra Mattes get knocked for being dry, but that’s predictable – apparently these lippies have some weird things going on pigment/slip-wise).

Oh, I am loving Pillow Talk, Chateau, Trust Me and Cami! Love the blurple shade, too, but just got So Wavy. Tickler looks beautiful, but Idk whether it could work with my coloring, though. These *mostly* look promising. I did notice a few look very dry, though. Like Boa, She Bad and Topless.

I have the same issue, but I find neutral or brown toned reds stay red on me. Chateau looks super similar to Prim, which I have and doesn’t pull pink on me.

Pretty colors, and most of them look pretty good. Tickler has my attention, of course, though I probably have dupes for that and most everything else here.


? ? ?

the finish on these are beautiful . reminds me of the maybelline creamy matte lippies , which i LOVE .

hollywood boulevard looks like the matte version of taurus .

ColourPop is really pushing me to place another order soon lol. Pillow Talk and Back Up are definitely my kinda shades!

Love Hollywood Blvd. but I am thinking that some of these matte lipsticks seem a bit dry. Your poor lips Christine trying all these matte lipsticks!

I just made an order today. I’m trying the eyeshadows for the first time (so quiche, nillionaire, and I heart this) and this new matte x formula in “pillow talk” and “she bad.” I think it would be fun to create an ombre effect with both lip shades. I wanted to order more matte x colors but they aren’t unique enough. I have too many similar mattes from MAC in my collection! I can say I absolutely love the price point though. If a shade doesn’t work out, I’m not kicking myself for ordering it since they’re so cheap.

I think I will get Pillow Talk and Hollywood Blvd. (the brown ones) in my next order! I love that you can try out colors you wouldn’t wear that often with Colourpop, because of the low price point 🙂 So glad I have been learning about the brand through your site!

The gold-based caramel-y brown of Hollywood Blvd seems like a very unusual color; seems like most browns lean at least a little bit red, if they’re not greyed or neutral. I’m curious to see the dupes list.

Barely There seems … oddly named (unless it’s a reference to clothing, which seems likely given Boa, Toless, and Cami).
