Colourpop Product Reviews

Hello! Fall is creeping up on us and I am welcoming it with open arms! I usually love summer, but right now I can't wait for it to cool down. On to more fun things... I was browsing the colourpop website and picked up a couple new things to try. I ordered 2 matte lip liquid lipsticks, a brow pencil, and a gel liner. Here are some swatches in different lighting. From left to right: Ultra Matte Lip in Zipper,  Ultra Matte Lip in Trap, Brow pencil in Dope Taupe, Creme Gel Liner in No Shame.

A quick and dirty run down of these products:

Colourpop Ultra matte liquid lipsticks: I think everyone knows this, but I'll say it anyway. These are very drying. If you do not prep your lips appropriately it will not look good. I've tried better formulated ones that had the price tag to go with it. With the nude shade I could get away with a couple passes over the same area to get a smooth look. With the deep purple shade I got a streaky look because the formula dried so quickly! I need a brush to apply this one right. Overall, it's a very inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different colors!

Colourpop Brow pencil: It's not bad and gets the job done. I think it lasted through the day, but the fact that I don't recall anything significant about this one should tell you enough.

Coloupop Gel eyeliner: Note this is a purple eyeliner and it looks black. Don't like. There was some tugging, skipping, and some rough edges. This was definitely not smooth and easy to draw on.
