I recently ordered the new Ultra Matte Lip + Lippie Stix from ColourPop. ColourPop is based out of Los Angeles, California. At around $5 each, Colour Pop has a lip shade in every color imaginable. In addition to lip products, they also feature eye shadows, blush, bronzers, and highlighters.
When you order from ColourPop, they also send you a post card with the product description and directions on how to use the product appropriately. Since I ordered two different categories (Ultra Matte Lip + Lippie Stix), I received two post cards.
The Ultra Matte Lip is a liquid lipstick that dries into a matte finish. They are not kidding when they say ‘ultra’. This product dries super fast, and at first I felt a tingly feeling, which subsided after a few minutes. I applied the color ‘Mars’ around 11am and this formula lasted me through my lunch break, around 4pm. Even after eating, the product was still on my lips! I applied a little more and it lasted until I decided to take my makeup off around 10pm.
The Lippie Stix formula contains the natural ingredients: Avocado, Mango, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E. I purchased the Matte version in ‘Toucan’. I applied ‘Toucan’ at 8:45am. Much like the Ultra Matte Lip, it lasted through lunch time. After eating my lunch, I noticed the color was still present! Again, I reapplied after lunch and this lipstick did not move until I was ready to take it off around 9:15pm. However, unlike the Ultra Matte Lip, my lips did not feel dry or tingly, most likely due to the hydrating ingredients mentioned above.
Kayla’s final thought
The ColourPop brand is amazing! Their products offer up great quality for a low price. I would recommend this brand over and over again. With over 30+ colors to choose from in the Ultra Matte Lip and over 70+ colors to choose from in the Lippie Stix, there is a color for everyone! I definitely recommend that you exfoliate your lips BEFORE you wear them, as they will most certainly dry your lips out. By exfoliating before hand, you will ensure that your lips stay nice and smooth, and don’t crack as you wear them throughout the day.
