Swatch Sunday: ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches & A Few Comparisons
Here’s an epic collage of all 25 shades of the upcoming ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) shades. Check out full swatches and a few first impressions that were posted just before, in case you missed it!
A few comparisons:
- Vice is the lightest and warmer of the beige/neutral shades
- Trap is a purple-leaning taupe with some of the cooler-neutral undertones in the launch
- Shimmy is lighter and more neutral than 1st Base, which is pinker and brighter with less rose than Solow
- Bumble is a darker, more muted version of Donut, which is warmer than Solow
- Seesaw is your warmer lavender, while Koala is a slightly darker, cooler-toned lavender
- Drive In is lighter and warmer than Lychee, and both are lighter than Zipper
- Sundae is cooler and not quite as bright, plus it has micro-shimmer, than Highball
- Highball is almost a “warm” fuchsia but reads almost cool-toned even on my skin tone, whereas Mars is a warm, fuchsia-red
- Succulent is an orange-based red, whereas Creeper is a blue-based red (also a bit darker and less neon)
- Tulle is a cooler, plummier take on Bumble, which is lighter and warmer

Omg, I was just thinking: ‘Would Christine do swatches of the new ColourPop liquid lipsticks soon?’ and then I saw this. Looking forward to the review, I hope they’re not too drying 🙂 I like Bumble and Succulent best!
We lucked out! ColourPop sent these over (normally I purchase, so my reviews come after I order + receive).
Christine, you are a BOSS. Clearly, I’m going to need Ouiji. And probably Donut. And Bumble and Mars and Succulent. Crappp.
Epic image is epic. I think it took two hours to make, haha.
You know, sometimes it blows my mind how much you seem to get done in a day. I mean, I see how many posts you make, how many pictures get taken and edited, not to mention the building of the reviews and posts themselves, and then I see you on IG and reddit (I was the one to post your swatches there, by the way, I really hope that’s okay). And then all the swatches and alllll that testing!
I am dying of curiosity to know what it’s like to spend a day in your life. I think it would be a great idea for a post or a video. I want to see where and how all your wizardry happens!
I’m just here, working on blog-related things, most of the time, and every day – so basically about 8AM until 10PM seven days a week 🙂 Obviously I eat lunch and dinner, and there are errands that I run at various times during the week, so it’s never a straight shot, but yeah, if you put in the hours, you can get a lot done! Like an unproductive week for me is 50-hours on the blog, but the average week is closer to 70 hours.
Your commitment is admirable and awe-inspiring. I mean, clearly, it’s something you love (it is probably the dream job of most makeup enthusiasts, after all), and it really shows through the quality of your work. Anyway, I figured I’d say all this to let you know the world appreciates your hard work and devotion (as if you didn’t already know that)! 😀
Aw <3 Thank you, Risa!!
Some of these would be perfect if they had a bit of shine! 😉
Haha 😉 It is hard for me to resist a glossy finish.
Maybe they should jump on the gloss bandwagon:)
lol I keep feeling like they need a swipe of gloss too. I’m really not a matte lipstick person in the end. 🙂
This is AWESOME! Making my list now and hoping they don’t come leaking!
Fingers crossed 🙂 Definitely didn’t have any leaking upon arrival and still haven’t seen any leaking after I’ve closed and wiped any of the offenders down.
WOW! What an incredibly helpful post!
While I’m not sure I’m 100% on board with the matte lips thing , I’m loving some of these bright colors.
Color-wise, Mars reminds me of Utter Fun, a long-ago MAC LE I loved and haven’t been able to dupe.
There are some bright ones here!
Tulle caught my eye straight away. I didn’t get along with the last matte liquid lipstick I tried though. Still, if it could look as nice on me as it does on you then I might be prepared to put up with dry lips. 😀
What was the last one you tried?
The Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellissima. I had to give it away, it was just far too drying for my lips!
I feel ya Gillian .Christine’s lips always look luscious in these . some of the Anastasia liquids looked ammazing on her and my lips look like old prunes!
I need Avenue and Creeper. So pretty! Can’t wait for your reviews!
Trap, Bumble and Tulle are the only ones catching my eye! I may have to try them out 🙂
I’m glad ColourPop is expanding. I’m not into the liquid lipsticks though. So,I’ll be continuing to indulge in their other lines and waiting for eyeliners. 🙂
Haha. I was wondering whether you’d be excited or not for these! I’d love to see eyeliner, too!!
I actually have some Anastasia liquid lipsticks that I may try to put on a trade forum. Old if those are tradable though because of the liquid part?
*idk not old,lol
I’m not entirely sure what rules exist nowadays for trading, lol!
I am dying for them to come out with gel eyeliners like Fluidlines!
Oh my God, I’m in love!!! I hope these aren’t too drying because they look beautiful!
I really really wish they did not look like they would run too dry for my lips… but they do. Sigh.
Do you feel like you can wear any of the liquid matte lipsticks out these days?
exactly, nope. I get too much shrinkage.. LOL
i think i’m going to pick up a few of these anyway! i do adore the KVD formula but colourpop’s prices are just so much better for my wallet 🙂 i was also sort of looking forward to bumble maybe being a dupe for LC riot? i think i’m gonna pick up bumble, avenue, tulle, trap, mars, and koala. maybe lychee too but i guess i need to limit myself somewhere
Keep us posted 🙂
BTW, I LOVE the pic showing all 25 shades at once — you can really see the difference between the shades, including the undertones. Very very helpful!
Glad you liked it!
YES YES YES
I need so many of these. Like at /least/ I’ll be buying Trap, Koala, Zipper, Lax, and Limbo.
What a goooooooooooooorgeous collage 😀 They look very dry though.
They are super matte!
I think these are too matte. They make lips look dry and the person unhealthy. Not that you look that way, Christine; it’s the lipsticks. The Maybellines that you just posted about look much, much better!
It’s definitely a preference!
Yes, I didn’t word my comment very nicely, sorry! I know some people really like lipsticks this matte but I have a hard time even looking at them. I must have been kissed by an aggressive auntie wearing a matte lipstick when I was a child. 😉
My lips hurt just from looking at all those swatches! I know I want Sundae, Highball, Pacific, Ouiji, Trap and maybe MARS. Thanks for the side by side!
This pic is so helpful. I still like Bumble and Tulle, maybe Solow and Limbo. I’d love to rock a super matte chocolate like that– I bet it doesn’t have any dupes that are as matte.
It’s going to be harder to dupe these with that super matte finish, since you’ll only get that look with other liquid lipsticks (which isn’t an area that I have as well-covered compared to regular lipstick!).
I feel for your lips. I’m sending them cyber care. 🙂 These are definitely not for me! Ouch! I’m amazed you go through all this, it still makes me awestruck you can keep going with even more!
They’re actually just fine 🙂 The trick is really not to remove too vigorously.
Glad to hear! My screen could be making it seem more brutal than it is!
Do you think that if you mix Mars & Pacifix that you could basically get Ouiji?
Possibly! These have seemed to dry down too quickly to mix for me, but I haven’t played with them too much beyond just testing individual shades.
I’m not that much into completely matte lip colors, which is probably why my favorite is Sundae! There are a few other shades I like (Donut, Ouiji, Tulle) but nothing drives me more nuts than faulty packaging, so I’ll wait and see if others have the same problems you reported.
Sundae is fun! 🙂 At least it is a little different.
I’m super excited about these! I’m not a fan of their eyeshadows since all the ones I bought were glitter bombs but there is hope for colourpop yet. I love liquid matte lippies! Tulle, Lychee, Bumble, Trap, Solow are all must haves to me! Thanks for the swatches!
My pleasure, Bethaney!
I LOVE YOU! you are awesome. I want these. that is all.
These all look gorgeous! Christine, do you think the feel of these lipsticks more resemble Anastasias liquid lipsticks or Kat Von D’s? Anastasia’s dried my lips out while Kat Von D’s was a little bit more bearable to handle.
They dry down faster than Anastasia but are easier to wear, so far, compared to Anastasia. Kat Von D has better flex and give, and it also has a longer dry down.
Wow! You did an awesome job getting these up this fast! Although, I would hate too be your lips right about now, LoL! These look sooo pretty, but I don’t think liquid matte lipstick would be terribly comfy on my lips living here in this INFERNAL desert though…we have already hit 114-115°.
I’m not a huge matte lip lover but damn, Colourpop certainly does some tempting colours! I would love to see how they would take on eyeliners too.
Eyeliners would be neat!
I’ve been into matte lips lately and Ouji is calling my name! 🙂 Do you see yourself reviewing the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks in the future, Christine?
Sorry, I don’t have anything from that brand!
How do these compare to the LA girl matte liquid lipsticks is it the same texture? I was not a fan of those ! I prefer the texture to be like KVD or Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks! TIA
Sorry, I haven’t tried those.
Wow, these are all incredibly ugly matte to me. No offense, Christine, as normally you look good in pretty much every color of every brand, but these CP matte liquid lipsticks make your lips look prune-wrinkled ugly. I realize that I’m in the minority in not liking such matte lipsticks but, once again, CP proves itself to be a humdrum sub-par brand.
Thanks for sharing, Di!
My pocket book is crying already. I know I want 5 at least!!
I’m in love with Koala!!! I’m really loving ColourPop. Thank you so much for posting this. Looking forward on you individual reviews (& more swatches)
No problem, Liz!
Thank you for your hard work in swatching all of these! I’ve watched a couple of YouTube videos on these liquid lipsticks, but your blog is far and away the most helpful and honest. 🙂
Glad I can help, Sheb! 🙂
I’m such a fan of the formula and wear time of their original lippie stix that I don’t feel tempted by these. Plus, I have such a hard time applying liquid lipstick. Also hope the higher price point on these isn’t a aign of what’s to come!
I’m glad the original lipsticks are working so well for you!
Zipper is really pretty. The first line of colors are all colors I like, but would look off on me. I’m guessing Lax, Limbo and Tulle would look suit me better, though I probably already have dupes for all of them in my collection.
Lucky duck – dupes already!
Thank you for the great swatches!
Wow, these really live up to the name ‘ultra matte.’
Will be looking forward to the review, and also LOVE the combo layouts you have been doing lately!
They are definitely super matte!
Like a couple others have said, these photos showcasing all of a product line at once are great. Please keep doing overviews like this! Your work is very, very appreciated.
The lighter ones here look great, but some of the darker colors look a bit patchy. I’m definitely getting Bumble… SO glad you were able to do these ahead of time to help us all decide!
Happy to help!
Oh dear, I am excited about these, such pretty shades. I try not to hoard lip stuff too too bad because they only last so long so I have been resisting trying some of the more expensive liquid lipsticks since it’s not something I could get away with wearing during the week. However, $6 each has got me doing the “I want this one, and this one, and this one…” I’ve been a sucker for color in general since I was a kid collecting giant boxes of crayons 🙂 (and yes I do also have a stash of art supplies in addition to my makeup which I think of like grown-up finger paints!) In the running for me are vice, shimmy, solow, donut, bumble, seesaw, mars, pacific, succulent, creeper, and tulle. I can’t ever seem to decide for sure whether I prefer cool or warm tones in my lip colors. I guess I like variety. I will have to narrow down to one or two to try out!
Variety is the spice of life 🙂
Whoa, they’re not playing around with the ultra matte business. It’s bit usually my cup of tea, but it gives such a neat effect to some of these colors. I might be persuaded to try Pacific or Mars.
It’s an interesting finish – some LOVE it, some hate it!
I was skeptical about buying the Anastasia ones, but these are a perfect dupe for a more affordable price. Already have six I’m going to buy once they launch. Patiently waiting…
I like these better than Anastasia as far as actual wear/feel has gone (so far, at least), though I think Anastasia has a longer, more workable dry down time.
I totally love their nude colors! So pretty and also the coral colors. Need to get my hands on this product asap.
You work so fast! Thank you for these quick swatches! Colour Pop is on a roll lately. There’s a ton of stuff I already want and this doesn’t help lol. I have my eye on Lychee, Trap, Zipper, Dive In and maybe Limbo too. There’s so many nice shades!
No problem, Fancie!
I really like Solow and Donut! I’ve been hesitant on matte formulas because of my really dry lips, but I have one from Kat Von D that I like. I have Outlaw (the perks of being a Sephora employee!) and even though it’s really bright and bolder than I’m use too, I love the formula. I wonder if these are similar? Also, I just made my first order for Colourpop eyeshadows in Coconut, Hammered, and La La!
Kat Von D is still more forgiving IMO, but you might give this formula a try – I do like it better than Anastasia’s.
Oh my gawwwd, I’m so excited for these! Thanks for swatching them out so quickly!
I think I’m going to get Trap, Bumble, Zipper & Tulle right away. Sundae has the coolest blue-purple shift to it, but I don’t think I could rock that pink of a pink! At $6 a pop, maybe I’ll try it anyway!
Bummer about the packaging problems though. Still, very excited! 🙂 All the colors look so lovely on you, Christine! Limbo especially, it looks divine with your eye colors in the other post!
Thank you! 🙂
gorgeous! will definitely buy some of them but I’m still not sure which one to get. I wonder if they would still look gorgeous on my medium, yellow undertone skin.
I bet some will!
If they could only ship to Mexico 🙁
Every time you make a post about this brand I just die haha. Your swatches are the best!
Thanks for the swatches, Christine. So far, my eyes are hooked by Donut, Solow, Succulent, and Creeper. I’m not really a fan of bright pink lipstick, but Mars looks gorgeous too! Anyway, I’m wondering about the expiration date or PAO on this one. Is is listed on the packaging, maybe? Thanks in advance 🙂
No problem, Niz! 🙂
It might be – I tossed all my packaging at this point (recycled), but I don’t think I have a shot of it (I only took a photo of the front and back – ingredient list and oz.).
I need these!! They look gorgeous!
When are these coming to the UK, I want them all!!!
I hope they’ll ship to UK soon!
Which all would you recommend for an olive, Middle Eastern skin toned person? I’ll get every which one you recommend. They look great on your lips. Lucky!
I haven’t tried them all, sorry!
I love these mattes! Where do I purchase these?
Can I buy any of these in store such as CVS or Walgreens?
ColourPop is online only!
