ColourPop Lipstick Review

Hello Ladies!

This week I am back with the review of my most favourite product-LIPSTICK! and that too Colourpop!! I am a lipstick junkie and a sucker for matte lipsticks and when I landed on colourpop’s website I just couldn’t resist. Selecting 3 out of all their gorgeous shades was indeed a task (How I wish I could have them all)! Also, how could I forget the endless convincing that it took to order these beauties πŸ˜€

IMG_6547.JPGI ordered three shades- Time Square, Tulle and Bumble and they come in the standard colourpop packaging. It has a really long doe foot wand which makes it a tad bit difficult to precisely apply the lipstick but the applicator is quite comfortable.

True to its name, the lipstick is extremely matte and drying. If you hate lipsticks that dry your lips then this ain’t for you. The formula is lightweight and very well pigmented. It does not feel heavy on the lips at all. The lipstick dries really quickly(within 15-20 secs) so you gotta work real fast with it.

I do not suggest layering it up once it dries since it gets flaky and peels off.  Do whatever blending and layering of different lipsticks you want to while it’s wet. Also, it’s really important to prep the lips before applying the lipstick to prevent drying and peeling off of skin. Exfoliate your lips and apply a thick layer of moisturiser or Vaseline petroleum jelly and let it settle for a while before painting your lips.

The staying power of the lipstick is very good and it is non-transferable. It stays for a good 6-8 hours and wears off a bit on the inside if you eat or drink. This liquid lipstick is a great deal at 6 USD and is available on colourpop’s official website. The international orders might be a bit expensive since customs in India are really a pain. I’d suggest you get someone staying in the USA order it for you and get it when they come.

Pros:

  1. Lightweight.
  2. Amazing quality at a cheap rate.
  3. Dries quickly.
  4. Extremely matte.
  5. Very well pigmented.
  6. Long Staying power.

Cons:

  1. Drying.
  2. Wand too long. (A very minute thing)
  3. Gets flaky and peels off if another coat is applied after the lipstick dries.
  4. Customs can make it expensive. (For International orders only)

You can purchase the lipsticks from here.

So that’s about it for the colourpop review. Tell me how you liked it in the comments below!

  1. Great review. I have recently ordered few of their lipsticks and I can’t wait to try them. Did you pay any custom charges?
