Though I haven't talked about it much, I am really into ColourPop! Have you heard of this new-ish cosmetics brand? It is an online only, super affordable brand of high-quality makeup products. I reviewed a few of the products previously here. The brand offers a ton of products in a ton of colors — or should I say colours? I am dying for them to launch a full-on lipgloss; you know how much I love a great gloss! Until then, I have to settle for their latest launch ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips. As soon as Satin Lips launched last week, I placed my order.
Knowing how pigmented ColourPop lip products are, I wanted to try the more nude and natural looking lip shades. I ordered Magic Wand, Echo Park and Frick 'N Frack and tried them the second they came through the door.
Magic Wand is a dark nude lip color. Echo Park takes that nude shade and kicks it up just a notch and adds a little bit of peachy color to it. Frick 'N Frack is a very dark burnt rose shade.
Ultra Satin Lips look quite different on the lips than they do swatched. They dry down pretty matte and are much darker than I would have expected. These are not nearly as matte as ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips, but they are not as satin or have as much of a sheen as I thought they would. They feel creamy on the lips though. The brighter shades look to be more satin in the swatches on their site. The pigmentation is incredible as I expected. One swipe over the lips is all that is needed. Being that I prefer a lighter and glossier finish, I do top them off without a bit of pearl gloss like this from NARS or MAC.
These does not run at all and it fades naturally and evenly. I'm really impressed with how long Ultra Satin Lips lasted on me overall. I would say it lasted a good five to six hours before I noticed some fading which was very gradual. I still noticed color on my lips beyond that point.
There are 16 shades in the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips lineup:
- Magic Wand - light nude
- Echo Park - light peach nude
- Dopey - dusty mauve
- Lyin' King - raspberry
- London Fog - cool blue-red
- The Rabbit - bright fuchsia
- Panda - deep pink violet
- Marshmallow - lavender grey
- Mess Around - grey beige
- Petit Four - deep charcoal grey
- TooLips - deep plum brown
- Frink 'N Frack - rose terracotta
- Tanzy - medium yellow-brown
- Cozy - orange-red
- Lost - brown-red
- Prim - dark black-red
I hope they come out with a real gloss soon!
