Skin Tone: Light to Medium with warm undertones
Skin Type: Combination
Famous youtuber Kathleen Lights recently did a collaboration with ColourPop. She launched three new ultra-satin liquid lipsticks – Alyssa, November and Point Zero. “Alyssa” and “November” are pinky shades which do not fascinate me since I already have so many pink lipsticks in my collection. “Point Zero” however looked very unique. I have reviewed these shades (The Rabbit, Frick n Frack, and Lyin’ King) from this range earlier on the blog. So, let’s see how this lipstick fared.
$6.00 USD for 0.11 oz.
A cool-toned grey brown.
How To Use:
Start by prepping the lips with Lippie Primer to moisturize and improve the lip’s texture. This will provide a smooth surface so that your Ultra Satin Lip goes on smoothly and lasts all day! Next, line with Lippie Pencil to perfect the lip line and fill lips in with Ultra Satin Lip.
My Experience with ColourPop Point Zero Ultra Satin Lip:
Packaging: The packaging is pretty standard clear tube with holographic writing on the side – ColourPop Ultra Satin. The bottom of the tube specifies the name “Point Zero.” The tube has a silver cap. The applicator is a standard doe foot. The product comes in the same cardboard boxes as the regular ones, only on these boxes it says “KathleenLights x Colourpop.”
Texture and Application: The texture of this liquid lipstick is bit mousse-y and liquid-y. The main difference between ultra-matte and ultra-satin is that the ultra-satins do not dry completely matte. It dries velvety matte within a few minutes once applied on the lips, so if there are any errors while applying, you can easily correct them. ColourPop recently changed their applicator to a fluffy doe foot. I am not a fan of their new applicator. It doesn’t give a precise line. There is a chemical fragrance to the lipstick which personally doesn’t bother me. Another major difference between the ultra-matte and ultra-satin liquid lipsticks is that the latter does not give “kiss-proof, budge-proof” finish. It does transfer a lot. However, they are very long lasting. It is advisable to exfoliate your lips to achieve a flawless finish. The ultra-satin doesn’t dry your lips and imparts a smooth finish. They are the most comfortable liquid lipsticks around.
Pigmentation and Coverage: This lipstick is super pigmented and super opaque. It gives a full coverage even if the lips are pigmented.
Shade and Finish: The shade is described as a “cool-toned grey brown” and it is a cement coloured greyish brown lipstick. This shade is pretty unique and not for the faint of heart! This shade will suit light to medium skin tones. When you first apply the lipstick, it will be satiny finish; however, it turns matte as the time pass by. You can also blot it with paper if you need an instant matte lip look.
Staying Power: The staying power is really good with this lipstick. It stays on for around 6 hours without the need to reapply. However, it will start fading if you eat oily meals. Overall, I am really happy with the colour payoff, the texture and the longevity of the lipstick. The lipstick can be easily removed with an oil-based makeup remover.
