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.More details:

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:

  • Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
  • NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick
  • NYX Epic Ink Lip Dye
  • NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
  • Sleek Matte Me


Makeup removal

Can be easily removed with cleansing oil.

Review summary:


  • affordable
  • beautiful shade of dusty rose
  • convenient applicator
  • dries the lips out
  • looks flakey and cakey
  • cannot live through a snack or a cup of coffee
