  • COLOURPOP LIQUID LIPSTICK HAUL

    Part two of my Colourpop haul is on the ultra matte/satin liquid lipsticks. If you want to see the first part on their eyeshadows, check it out here.

    Colourpop has become my favourite brand for liquid lipsticks. I find they are the most long lasting of any brand I’ve tried and I have quite the collection. They are incredibly affordable at  $6 each, bearing in mind that these are coming from the US and you will be charged a customs charge when they arrive in the UK but I still think they are worth this extra cost.

    Ultra Satin Lipstick in Femme – described as a muted dirty lilac. The colour looks quite pink here but it actually dries on the lips as a deep purple shade with a greyish tint which is perfect teemed with a purple smokey eye. This is a definite favourite of my chosen shades and one I find works very well for a night out.

    Ultra Satin Lipstick in November – described as a mid-tone warm peachy pink. This is one from Colourpop’s collaboration with KathleenLights and is as it is described making it very wearable for every day. I love to wear this one to work.

    Ultra Matte Lipstick in Lumiere 2  described as a dusty mauve pink. Another from the collaboration with KathleenLights is this gorgeous mauve shade which is my ideal lipstick colour. It’s very autumn/winter appropriate and I think would suit many skin tones. If you get one lipstick, make it this one.

    Ultra Matte Lipstick in Tulle – described as a dusty mauve burgundy. I love a bold lip on a night out but nothing annoys me more than when the colour starts to wear off and you are left with only a ring of colour around the outside of your lips. If like me this is something you want to avoid then I recommend this shade. I never go on a night out without this lipstick now.

    And finally, Ultra Matte Lipstick in Dr. M – described as a deep darkened green. I saw this on the website and knew immediately I wanted to try it because green lipstick is definitely not a colour I’ve used before. I made my order around about Halloween time so knew it would come in handy. Although in the end I never wore it on Halloween but I will find a use for this crazy shade.

    Shades from left to right – Femme, November, Lumiere 2, Tulle and Dr. M.

    If you’re on the fence about purchasing Colourpop liquid lipsticks, I’d say just to go for it! I don’t regret my decision at all and will be making another order the next time they have free international shipping.

    What is your favourite Colourpop shade?

    Thanks for reading,

      Can you remember how much your customs fee was I’m dying to get some colour pop items 😍

        I was about £23 in customs but I did buy quite a lot! A few other girls I know got charged about £18/19. X

          I’d probably place a big order at once rather than little ones spread out! Thank you x

      The colours are really beautiful, I’m yet to try out colourpop lipsticks though and they’re so affordable.
