Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Color is a recent rave among Youtubers because it is a cheap yet great dupe of Kat Von D Everlasting 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 4 have already received good reviews on IMBB. The shade in this post is “Lychee” and is a very pretty purple shade. Read on to know more details about this product.
No matter how you say it, you’ll always look juicy in this bright warm violet.
My Experience with Colourpop Lychee Ultra Matte Lip Color:
Packaging: Comes in a test tube like packaging with a silver, twist cap which has a long doe-foot applicator attached to it. I like the packaging because it’s easy to carry along and to identify among the pile of other lip colors.
Texture: It is very creamy and smooth to apply, reminds me of NYX matte lip cream. 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: Beautiful, bright purple color with pink undertones – this color might appear a bit scary to some, on the contrary, it goes well with dusky and brown skin tones and makes our face appear brighter, but it also makes teeth appear yellower hence one has to be cautious while using it.
Pigmentation: Awesome pigmentation and I testify for its pigmentation because I have pigmented lips and I try really hard to hide my uneven lip tone and to get a flawless finish.
Shimmer and Shine: It has no shimmer or shine whatsoever. On first swatch, it might appear a little wet or shiny; however, in couple of seconds it dries out into a smooth, velvet matte finish.
Fragrance: The product 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 these or it won’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 little too stubborn to remove.
I am really happy that I took a leap of faith and purchased these lip beauties from Colourpop. I can’t wait to buy other shades as well.
