Hi! How are you? I hope you had a very good weekend because I did! Why?
These babies came!
Finally, the long wait is over! This is just a mini haul because I only bought a bundle of three. In this blog post, I will also show the swatches. Like what I have mentioned in my last blog, I am not a fan of matte lipsticks because it kind of dries out my lips. However, I’m trying to collect them as well because I think matte is really classy but you just have to keep your lips moisturized from time to time.
I got the set called ‘Out and About’ for only $12 which is originally $15 from the main site of Colourpop. (Click Here!) I bought it on a Black Friday sale that’s why I think the price is really a good steal! We don’t have colourpop stores in the Philippines yet that is why I got so giddy when I heard about the sale. Plus… FREE SHIPPING!
The set contains three lippies of the same scheme: 2 Ultra Mattes (Times Square and Viper) and 1 in Ultra Satin formula (Baracuda).
At first, I thought the main packaging is a closed box with individual boxes inside but turns out, it is like an open ended box so the other boxes have the capacity to fall if you don’t handle the package carefully.
This is my first time to use a liquid-base lipstick and what I noticed is that it dries really fast and it is so pigmented that is why you won’t have to worry about reapplying over and over to get your desired shade. It doesn’t smudge as well once dried. Taking it off gave me a hard time because the formulation is so thick that it needs a separate make up remove wipe! But still, I like it a lot!
Individual Review Time!
My top pick among the three is the shade Time Square because its shade is in the tone of nude and it is very wearable for everyday shenanigans. It doesn’t smudge that’s why I think the formulation is really good and it is so pigmented. You only need to dip the applicator once to get the shade you desire. This is definitely a go-to color. However, in the packaging, the color inside the tube looks a little lighter but once you apply it, the color becomes darker as it dries.
Next in line is another Ultra Matte in shade Viper. (Wow, I love how that sounds) It is close to a burgundy shade. I think it is wearable at night and it is definitely a fall season vibe. I wore this once and ate beef noodles, CATASTROPHE!!! Never eat oily soup-based food with Colourpop!
Last of today’s blog is an Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Baracuda. I am not a fan of this one because it easily smudges but on a higher note, it is really pigmented. SO PIGMENTED THAT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHEN APPLYING.
All in all, I think that these lipsticks are worth the try. I recommend that you should buy in bulk, like ask your friends to buy with you online because for free shipping, colourpop requires that you buy cosmetics worth $50. I will totally collect more and I am officially addicted to Colourpop!
