ColourPop Ultra Satin Lipsticks

I have been a huge fan of ColourPop for some time now. Affordable products that in my opinion are worth more than the price tag. The only downside has been the cost of International shipping. Story of my online shopaholic life! Fortunately the last couple of months of 2016, ColourPop offered free shipping with minimum spend to us International customers. It was perfect timing for my end of year splurge. I only purchased lip products this time around, a mix of Ultra Metallics and Ultra Satins. This post I will be showing you the Ultra Satins.

Taken from ColourPop- "A lightweight, comfortable, bold lipstick, with a Satin finish. This lipstick is extremely long wearing, although not completely kiss proof- you may leave some marks on your coffee cup!"



Typical liquid lipstick tube packaging with a doe foot applicator.



The lipstick has a mousse like consistency, quite different to the liquid consistency of the Ultra Mattes. The Ultra Satins feel very comfortable on the lips. They don't completely set, but last for hours even through eating and drinking. I find that in a pinch, instead of reapplying at the end of the day, I simply rub my lips together. This blends any fading which is possible because the formula is slightly creamy. 

I really love this liquid lipstick. I can get the matte finish that I love, but not have to deal with the dry lips that generally go hand in hand with a matte liquid lipstick.

Now for some lip swatches.

  2. Me personally, I'm a fan of Brooklyn (love me a bright pink!), Echo Park & Calypso (not sure if I could get away with the former, but the latter I think I could). I've had Colourpop stuff on & off my wishlist for a while...maybe I should re-consider putting some things back on that list!

  6. All these colors are gorgeous, but Calypso is my favorite one. If I liked matte formula, this one, I believe, would belong to my top lipsticks.
