Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lipstick Review

Facebook and Instagram has been blowing up with Colour pop lipsticks and eyeshadows and I decided to give them a try. I was never a big fan of liquid lipsticks but these are just amazing..I did go out and buy these with my own money so it was a gamble, win or loose.

ColourPop's new Ultra Matte Lip liquid lipsticks will debut 38 shades with an impressive range from red, pink and corals to purples, browns and nudes. Some are more long lasting then others . 

I did only purchased 3 colors and a couple of shadows because I didn't know how I would feel about them, so I made a safe bet and ordered 3 and If I love them then I would make another purchase.

I ordered, Tulle, Bumble and Avenue. The reason why purchased these 3 particular colors was that autumn fall season is right around the corner and what better way to get into the moment with a couple of lipsticks

 Let start off with why I really like these lipstick, they are so pigmented! you only need one coat. Rich in color and they glide on very smoothly when being applied. This product doesn't settle into cracks of the lips, it just layers very smoothly. In my personal experience they didn't bleed outside the lip, which is a big GO! And of course they are smudge proof once they dry! I kiss my son all day long and hate it when lip products transfer on his little cheeks! Not with this product, it doesn't leave any stains anywhere so when I eat and drink it wont transfer. ( Have in mind that when eating hot foods, the lipstick do tend to melt off) When they dry, of course they dry matte, but one thing that leaves my lips feeling unpleasant is that they don't dry to the point where I don't notice I am wearing it, I do still feeling this wear feeling on my lips, nothing I have ever experienced before so I don't know if all matte liquid lipstick are this way or is it just this one.. (Leave a comment if you have experienced this before!)

Now lets move on to a couple of set backs with these products. One thing I absolutely hate is that when I open up the tube some of the lip color splatters! Drives me crazy but its okay. I only noticed this when my mirror was full of lipstick drop's. Would I say this product is worth that type of struggle? Maybe... lets move on to other setbacks, another thing  I noticed was that when I build up the color intensity patches start to form on my lips then it crumbles  off. I learnt my lesson the hard way with these babies, moisturize your lips before applying them and don't go crazy with layering them. Have in mind, they do transfer on the teeth within the first few seconds of applications, I know I said they dry matte within a couple of seconds and don't smudge afterwards, but in the first 5 seconds they will transfer on the teeth and I had to learn that the hard way!!!

Would I repurchase these Ultra Matte Lipsticks: I would repurchase these lipstick but would not splurge on them because of how they to tend to crumble on the lip and dry in an unpleasant feeling. They are worth the buck, they go for about $6.00 per item, making them a lot more affordable then some drugstore lipsticks. If you are starting to grow your makeup collection I would suggest going with this Ultra Matte Lipsticks.

In this photo I am wearing Tulle  "Not the douchey kind but a dusty mauve burgundy" -Colour Pop. It seems as if it is a deep brown then a mauve burgundy.

Here I am wearing  Bumble, they 
"Everyone will bee buzzing when you wear this dusty warm terracotta" - Colour Pop. I did over line my lips just a wee bit and it actually looks great. This looks more like a dark pink/mauve color, it also depends on the lighting.

Last but not least this is "Avenue" Colour Pop- "Sleep all day, stay up all night in this deep yellow red". Such a gorgeous deep red.

Here is a recap of the pro's and con's

  • Affordable
  • Dries Super Quick 
  • Smudge Proof
  • Kiss proof
  • Highly Pigmented
  • Long Lasting

  • Not the best for dry lips
  • Transfers on teeth within first couple of seconds of application
  • Doesn't layer well
  • Splatters when opened up
  • Stains the lips


Overall I would I like these lipsticks but can't say I am a huge fan of the Ultra Matte Lipsticks. My favorite one is Bumble, such a rich, deep brown color!

  1. OMG I haven't seen the show since it was airing years and years ago and even then I only saw the first season but your photo for Bumble makes you look exactly like Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester's character from Gossip Girl. You have the makeup the style, the hair, and you are so beautiful! Makeup very on point aside from that! <3

    1. Thank you sweety! I got that a lot with that particular photo!
