Review: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip

First off, let me start off by saying how excited I was for this opportunity to finally write about Colourpop! They have been all over social media and I have heard nothing but great things. I got a packet of Colourpop Ultra Matte Lippies in the mail the other day and thought I would write a blog on my first impressions and to see how well they last during the day. I love a matte lip so this is definitely something I needed to get my hands on.

The packaging itself is very classic and minimal, which I love. If you order directly from the seller, they even take the time to write you a personal note, which I always find extremely considerate and makes you feel like you are getting the best service (which you are!). Before I get carried away, let me tell you readers the VALUE you are getting with these bad boys. Each one of these is a whopping $6 USD. Yup, that's right, $6. If that isn't incredible, I don't know what is. 

As for the application, it is very similar to many other liquid lipsticks. Very wet during when first applied and sticky as it sets. When this lipstick sets, not only is it extremely matte, but it feels weightless, as though nothing is even on the lips (picture of lipstick freshly applied above). I decided that if I was going to review this lipstick, might as well put it to the test, so off I went to eat a large buttery italian meal, shop the nearby promenade and some froyo. At the end of the day, I had worn this lipstick for around 7 hours without touching up.

Shown above is what the lipstick looked like after around 7 hours of wear. That is incredible! Aside from flaking towards the center and corners of my lips, the lipstick stayed on great. There also is some transfer if you rub your lips! To touch the lipstick up, I layered a second coat and got some balling/flaking, so I recommend removing the old lipstick and reapplying a fresh coat. Towards the end of the day, my lips were a bit on the dry side but nothing too unbearable. 

Overall this product is a MUST-HAVE! With this price, you can't pass it up.
A definite 5/5!

The color worn on my lips is Trap.
