ColourPop is one of the most highly-hyped liquid lipstick brand in market. ColourPop makes quality products at an affordable price range. Today, I am going to review their ultra-matte liquid lipstick “Mars.” So let’s see how this product fared.
$6.00 USD for 1 oz.
Product Description: Whether you’re from Mars or Venus this red fuchsia will be fab on you.
How to Use:
Step 1: Make sure your lips are bare and dry!
Step 2: Apply matching lip pencil for a precise and perfected application.
Step 3: Apply Ultra Matte Lip with the applicator or your favourite lip brush.
My Experience with ColourPop Mars Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick:
ColourPop has rapidly become one of the most popular brands for liquid lipsticks. The quality of the product is fantastic and the colour selection is vast. There is a lipstick shade that will complement every type of skin tone. ColourPop also ships to India, however, the customs are too high. “Mars” is a beautiful hot pink shade from this brand.
Packaging: The packaging is pretty standard clear tube with holographic writing on the side – ColourPop Ultra Matte. The bottom of the tube specifies the name “Mars.” The tube has a silver cap. The applicator is a standard doe foot. The product comes in a white cardboard box with the name of the product and the ingredients list.
Texture and Application: The texture of this liquid lipstick is very thin and liquid-y. It dries matte within seconds once applied on the lips, so if there are any errors while applying, correcting them is a task. The doe-foot applicator makes it easy to fill in the corners of the lips with ease. There is a chemically fragrance to the lipstick which personally doesn’t bother me. Once the liquid lipstick dries, it has a powdery feel to it. Even after the lipstick sets completely dry, it may transfer slightly. One important point that I would like to highlight is that before applying the lipstick, please exfoliate your lips else the lipstick when set might look crumbly. If the lips feels really dry, a lip balm can be used as a top coat. However, this will affect the longevity of the lipstick.
Pigmentation and Coverage: The lipstick is super pigmented and super opaque. It gives a full coverage even if the lips are pigmented. One swipe is all it takes to get the maximum pigmentation.
Shade and Finish: The shade is described as a “red fuchsia” and it is a very beautiful fuchsia shade which will complement fair to medium Indian skin tones. It might not work for darker skin tone. This particular shade makes my teeth look super white. The lipstick will dry ultra-matte. They are very comfortable to wear. It does accentuates the lip lines.
Staying Power: The staying power is really good with this lipstick. It stays on for around 8 hour without the need to reapply. It is kiss proof and budge proof. However, it will start fading from the centre of the lips if you tend to eat oily meals. Overall, I am really happy with the colour pay off. The lipstick can be easily removed with an oil based makeup remover.
