Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I LOVE makeup! Who doesn’t? Scratch that. Plenty of people hate it.
In an effort to make it not so confusing, I’ve always found I love reviews. The problem? Almost everyone is tanner than me! No bueno.
The solution? This post. (Sign up so you don’t miss these!)
I took some time to review the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip – Iluvsarahii x ColourPop – 951 and Arriba! You can check it out here! Or just keep on reading!
Color: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color! It’s a blue-toned red, which FYI makes your teeth look whiter!! Who doesn’t love that?
I’m a Mac NC 15 – pretty much the lightest shade they make – and this color doesn’t make me look like a creepy clown! Thank GOODNESS!
Feel: It genuinely feels weightless on my lips. Once it dries down, it’s matte (no shine) and it can be a little drying towards the end of the night/if you fall asleep with it on (lol – guilty). But, it’s not bad at all and very common with matte liquid lips.
Staying Power: This b*tch doesn’t budge. Once it’s on and dries down – best bet it’s there until you scrub your lips or rub them down with oil.
I’ve eaten burgers and gone to happy hour with this and it has looked flawless the whole time. I can also kiss my boyfriend and it doesn’t transfer!! MAGIC.
Price: Let’s be real, $6 for a big bottle of this is a STEAL. ColourPop is extremely affordable and these 2 products perform perfectly. Definitely worth the price – heck! I’d spend $15 on it, to be honest.
Verdict: Must buy. Couldn’t you tell? This sh*t is no joke!
Color: This is a darker brown nude. My skin is Mac NC15 and this is not a “my-lips-but-better” nude for me. I still use this color everyday because I love the look. But, if you’re looking for something natural, pinky, or light (in color) then this isn’t for you.
I’d say if you asked me to wear this color 2 years ago I’d say it’s too dark or too brown.
Now, I wear it everyday and LOVE it!
Feel: This is an ultra satin lip, meaning it won’t dry down without shine. It will have a little shine, and a little tacky feeling. DON’T let this scare you! It’s not the gross, gluey type of tacky. You’re hair won’t get stuck in it if the wind blows, and you won’t die trying to separate your lips apart. It’s a liquid lipstick – not super glue!
Ultimately, just know it’ll have a tiny shine. Nothing crazy.
Staying Power: I definitely expected this to slide around and fall off. I was wrong.
This bad boy stays on all day long, even through happy hour when I didn’t have any straws. It even stayed on when I ate food! I’m not kidding when I say I wear this color 4 days a week.
I can kiss my boyfriend with it, but I’ll generally give him a lighter kiss. It transfers a tiny bit, but not if you kiss lightly. You decide his fate lol.
Price: This is tricky. ColourPop no longer has this in a single, but they have it in a bundle! The bundle is $15 for 3 lip products (Curvii gloss, 951 satin, Mamacita matte), so technically each one is $5. I’d say it’s worth it, since we already know the matte formula works great!
Verdict: Stand by. Don’t pull the trigger if you typically hate dark brown lip colors on yourself and you’re pale like me. Although, if you are willing to step a little bit out of your comfort zone, you’ll love it. Just promise to wear it three times.
All in all, you really can’t go wrong with ColourPop! Their satin and matte formulas are AMAZING and CHEAP!!
