By now, you've heard of ColourPop. You've heard of the inexpensive prices, the drama surrounding the similarity between their formula and Kylie Jenner's lip kits. You've heard about their countless celebrity collaborations. But have you tried the products?
I took my first dive into the ColourPop world about a month ago and have since placed and received another order (spoiler alert: I love ColourPop). I wanted to walk you through what I've purchased and what I like about each product. Get ready to be tempted!
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips
The ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip formula is the most comfortable of their lip formulas. It has a demi-matte finish without drying down fully and sucking the moisture out of your lips. It is not completely transfer-proof, but that's to be expected from a non-drying formula. This is the formula that I continue to covet over any of the others on their website. The lip swatches above are in the same order left to right as they are mentioned below.
Lyin' King - A super-pigmented raspberry shade. Makes your teeth look very white!
Echo Park - My go-to nude. It has a brown undertone that is very flattering.
Dopey - A gray-tone mauve. Gives you a very edgy look without being dark. It looks a little chunky in the photo, but comes out smooth on the lips.
Naked Ladies -A watermelon-toned red. Perfect for summer.
Spritz - A purple-y bubblegum pink. Love this for a tropical look!
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips
The ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips formula is still incredibly comfortable. After wearing this formula all day (and believe me, it lasts all day), I don't end up with cracked lips that need TLC. I can wear this formula multiple days in a row without any problems. It is a true matte formula - it completely dries down and does not transfer. I only own one shade right now, but after perusing the color selection while writing this article, you can bet that more will make their way into my next order.
Midi - A light beige-y pink. Flatters pink-toned skin.
Colourpop Lip Pencils
When I first became obsessed with makeup and found myself spending hours watching YouTube, the only lip liners I heard about were M.A.C. lip liners. I was obsessed. When I received one for Christmas, I couldn't wait to try it out! However, I found the formula very dry and hard to work with. It streched my lips and felt scratchy. The ColourPop liners could not be more different. They are creamy, soft and not dry in the slightest. I need to pick up more shades, but Brink (the only one I currently own) is the perfect starter liner.
Brink - A warm taupe. Has the Kylie Jenner nude vibe.
ColourPop Super Shock Cheeks
I have never felt a blush formula like this. I had been convinced by Tati Westbrook of Glam Life Guru that these blushes were a must-have. When my ColourPop order arrived I immediately unpacked these blushes and swatched them. Their texture is so weird! It's a powder blush that almost feels like a gel - very strange, but very effective. I apply this blush in a patting motion on the apples of my cheeks for a super natural flush without streaks. I would highly recommend checking out these blushes. The blush shades above are in the same order from left to right as they are mentioned below.
Aphrodisiac - A soft beige brown. This cheek shade is very natural and gives you a warm flush.
Between the Sheets - A beige nude pink with a matte finish. Gives you a pretty natural glow!
