Colourpop Limbo Ultra Matte Lip Color Review

“Limbo” is one of the six shades that I bought as part of my Colourpop haul and yesterday, I had reviewed the shade “Lychee,” – a pretty purple shade and today’s review is on the shade “Limbo,” which is a goth brown shade.  These Colourpop lipsticks are a rage among Youtube bloggers because they are so cheap yet equally good as Kat Von D liquid lipsticks. This product comes in so many shades that I had a hard time choosing the shades of my choice; still I narrowed down my list to 6 shades, out of which, four have already been reviewed on IMBB.  Here’s more on “Limbo” from Colourpop.

Product Description:
You’ll be bending over backwards for this deep chocolate brown.



My Take on Colourpop Limbo Ultra Matte Lip Color:

Packaging: A test tube kind of lip gloss tube with a long doe-foot applicator attached to it. I like the packaging because it’s easy to store and to identify from a pile of other lip colors.

Texture:  It is very creamy and smooth to apply, reminds me of NYX matte lip colors. It does not tug on dry lips; however, a lip balm is recommended underneath because some might find it a bit too drying. Another great feature of this product is that it dries in a matter of seconds and when we rub our lips together or smack them, they do not stick together or appear tacky.

Color: A dark chocolate brown color which gives kind of a gothic appearance, this color might appear a bit scary to some, on the contrary, it goes well with dusky and brown skin tones and makes the face appear brighter and also makes teeth appear whiter, which was not the case with the last shade that I had reviewed (Lychee).


Pigmentation: Awesome pigmentation and I can vouch for this claim because I have pigmented lips and I have tried hard and failed to hide the pigmentation on my lips.

Shimmer and Shine:  This lip color has no shimmer or shine whatsoever.  In the initial swatch, it appears a little wet or shiny; however, in a couple of seconds, it dries out to a smooth, velvet matte finish.

Fragrance:  This lip color has a very subtle floral fragrance which I like since it doesn’t bother me too much and fades away eventually.

Wear Time:  One needs a very good makeup remover to remove this lip color, otherwise, it doesn’t budge at all. It might fade a little if one consumes oily food, but otherwise, it does not budge at all. In fact, it is a little too stubborn to remove.
