Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Review + Swatches

June 20, 2016

If you follow me on Snapchat (myinnerfabulous) then you got a little sneak peek into this post a week or so ago when I first received these lipsticks in the mail. If you're new or this is the first you're hearing about it then let me fill you in! Kylie Jenner has a lipstick line that runs for about $30 + shipping and is extremely popular. I've read several reviews raving about her lipsticks, and as an avid lipstick fan I was intrigued. However, I was hesitant to drop that kind of money on lipstick when I couldn't test it before buying. Then, along came this Buzzfeed article that alerted me to the brand Colourpop. Basically what the article says is that Kylie's lipstick and Colourpop's matte lipsticks have almost exactly the same formula. Turns out they use the same factory to manufacture their products. 

However, Colourpop's products run for $6 + shipping. And you can get $5 off when you sign up for their email. Well this sold me and I ordered Creeper (I know, awful name) and Mars. Here's a peek at the swatches:

Overall, I was very impressed with the product, especially for the price. I love that they're matte and they dry really quickly. That makes things kind of tricky if you mess up when you're applying though! I will say that I did find them to be pretty drying but that was easily solved by putting a little bit of Vaseline on top. 

The above and below pictures are of me wearing Creeper. It's a really true red, which I love. There's a little bit of transferring once you're wearing it. Like if you're drinking something it will leave a mark on your glass, but it's not all over the place. I honestly didn't have to reapply all day though, which is pretty amazing. 

I did find that it bled a little bit throughout the day, so I would recommend using lipliner. Either a color to match or a color that matches your lips. And be warned that using a wand to apply is kind of tricky. It took me a few tries to get it applied nicely.

Here is Colourpop's Mars. It's kind of a hot pink/berry color, which I had been searching or. 

Now I haven't actually tried Kylie's products, so I can't make a comparison, but what I really wanted when I was looking into her products was something that was long lasting, very pigmented, and matte, which I found in Colourpop's Ultra Matte products. So I'm satisfied! 

Even Louie approves :) I actually had a friend purchase one after I talked about it on snap and she says she loves it so far so I would love to hear what you think! Have you tried Colourpop or even Kylie's lipsticks?
