I’m not a fan of shimmer in lip products, but I do feel like using a nice gloss, when I’m too bored of matte lippies. I see myself wearing it once in a while for festive occasions, or maybe for office wear. A gloss, sometimes, is perfect for special occasions or for spicing up an everyday look. I picked two ColourPop glosses recently and one of the shades is ‘My Jam’, which I’m reviewing in this post.
Ultra Glossy Lip Provides extreme shine with a cushion-like feel and no stickiness! This gloss smooths and conditions the lips and leaves them looking fuller and healthier.
Metallic, full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.

Packaging: The packaging is a pretty standard, clear tube with holographic writing on the side – “ColourPop Ultra Glossy”. The bottom of the tube specifies the name “My Jam.” The tube has a silver cap and the applicator is a standard doe-foot wand. The product comes in a white cardboard box with the name of the product and the ingredients list.
Texture: The texture of the ultra glossy lipstick is highly glossy with shimmer particles. It is super hydrating and non-sticky. The doe-foot applicator provides an easy application. Wearing it over other lipsticks is comfortable, as the formula is great. It can be worn alone or layered over any matte lipstick.
Color: I was expecting more of a metallic topper type gloss, but this is just a nude gloss.The color of the gloss is nudish-gold, although it looks darker in the packaging. It goes best over matte brownish shades.
My Experience with ColourPop My Jam Ultra Glossy Lip:
Firstly, I just love ColourPop packaging as it just makes the application more even because, it is easier to wipe off the excess on the rim of the tube before using. The pigmentation of this gloss is strong, as it gives sparkly lips in a single swipe. It gives a beautiful shiny color which can be easily worn during the day time. The shade is suitable for all the skin tones, especially warm undertones. This is really a pretty nude gloss that can amp up any look. The formula is amazing! It’s super shiny and somehow smooths out my lips.
If my lips start out flaky and gross, by the end of using this, they are smooth and feels amazing. I love wearing this gloss over the top of my favourite nude lip -ColourPop Lippie Stix Parker. When you want to opt for smokey eye, you can wear this alone too. It looks like a very light gold sparkly gloss on me. The shimmers are visible and as soon as I eat something, the glitter particles tend to smear around my lips, which is very disappointing. The staying power is also not very impressive, as it transfers a lot and doesn’t survive a single meal. 2-3 touch ups are required during the day!
Pros of ColourPop My Jam Ultra Glossy Lip:
- Enhances the overall look.
- No stickiness.
- High shine.
- Gives juicy, luscious pout.
- Great pigmentation.
Cons of ColourPop My Jam Ultra Glossy Lip:
- Feathers or bleeds
- Doesn’t stay for long
IMBB Rating: 3.9/5
