ColourPop launched their ultra-satin lipsticks this year. These lipsticks are a good alternative for their ultra-matte liquid lipsticks. I got the shade “Tansy” since I am totally in love with brown lipsticks. So, let’s see how this lipstick fared.
$6.00 USD for 0.11 oz.
Don’t be a pansy! Get Tansy, a medium-toned yellow brown.
How To Use:
Start by prepping the lips with Lippie Primer to moisturize and improve the lips 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 Tansy Ultra Satin Lip:
When ColourPop released this new range of liquid lipsticks, I was super excited. I really like their ultra-mattes, however, they tend to feel a bit dry. If you want to try liquid lipsticks, but you are apprehensive of the dryness, then this lipstick is your best bet. ColourPop as always has a wide range of colour selection in this range too.
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 “Tansy.” The tube has a silver cap. The applicator is a standard doe-foot applicator. 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 a bit mousse-y and liquid-y. The main difference between ultra-matte and ultra-satin is that the ultra-satin ones do not dry completely matte. However, they are more matte than those Maybelline and Revlon matte liquid lipsticks. It dries to a velvety matte within a few minutes once applied on the lips, so if there are any errors while applying, you can easily correct it. The doe-foot applicator makes it easy to fill in the corners of the lips with ease. There is a chemical fragrance to the lipstick which personally doesn’t bother me. Another major difference between the ultra-matte and ultra-satin is that the latter does not give a “kiss proof, budge proof” finish. It does transfer a lot. However, they are very long lasting. It is advisable to exfoliate your lips for the flawless finish. The ultra-satin doesn’t dry your lips and give a smooth finish. They are the most comfortable liquid lipstick.
Pigmentation and Coverage: The 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 “medium yellow brown” and it is indeed a very stunning brown shade which will complement Indian skin tones. All of us can pull this beautiful shade and this shade is suitable for office and party wear. When you first apply the lipstick, it will be satiny finish; however, it turns matte as the time passes on. 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 hour without the need to reapply. However, it will start to fade if you eat oily meals. Overall, I am really happy with the color payoff, the texture, and the longevity of the lipstick. The lipstick can be easily removed with an oil-based makeup remover.
