Welcome to my review!
Today I’m going to tell you about the most terrible matte lipstick I ever had. I was lucky - all the matte lipsticks I previously owned were great and never dried my lips out. So I never expected this one to be such a disaster.
I love ColourPop eyeshadows, that’s why I decided to give this matte lipstick a try. The reviews were quite controversial.ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick:
- Price: $6
- Shade: Viper
- Purchased on the official website
I was pleasantly surprised with the design of the lipstick. There is a good sponge applicator, metal cap and a signature box.
The boldest formula of our liquid lipsticks - in one smooth swipe, you’ll get intense color payoff that dries down to a super matte, transfer-proof finish.
You’ll really want to sink your teeth into this dark dusty rose.
This has not been without some drawbacks: the inscriptions on the tube fade very quickly.
The formula is thick and creamy. The lipstick dries really quickly, turning into clay on my lips.
The lipstick is odorless.
Viper: I agree with the manufacturer who described this shade as dark dusty rose.
Thanks to the creamy formula, the lipstick provides a smooth comfortable application. However, it dries instantly. That’s what it looks like on my lips:
Doesn't it look cakey? Personally I prefer a velvety finish and I don’t like to feel anything on my lips.
The lipstick is really drying.
In ten minutes after application.
In four hours and a snack.
I’m so frustrated with the quality! I think that the lipstick is tolerable in terms of smell and taste, but I totally hate the gross flaking and dry look it gives my lips.
My personal rating of good matte lipsticks:
