ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches

When ColourPop first released their Ultra Matte Lips I was lucky enough to pick four of them up before they sold out.

I picked up Midi, Solow, Tulle, and Limbo (pictured left to right above).

Swatches in the same order below.

To show the lasting power of these lovelies, I tried scrubbing my arm with soap and water and this was the aftermath. These babies have staying power!

After having worn them a couple of times I can say that I like them. They aren't my favorite liquid lipsticks, but for the price point of $6 each you really can't go wrong.

If you are planning on wearing them you really need to make sure that your lips are exfoliated and hydrated.

For me, I exfoliate my lips, add a lip balm (chapstick, EOS, Vaseline), use a lip primer, (optional to add lip balm again), line with a lip liner (to keep these babies on my lips), apply the product quickly (they dry fast), and add some type of lip gloss or balm over them.

I find that if I don't do this regiment that they crack and dry on me, which let's face it isn't appealing.

The good news is that they are back in stock

I like Midi and have heard it compared to Anastasia Beverly Hill's Pure Hollywood.

Have you tried ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lips yet?
