I know, I know! I’m obsessed with ColourPop! How can one not be obsessed though!?! The brand is super affordable and the products are high quality! They are constantly releasing new products (almost weekly) and every product they release is a must have!
A little over a month ago, ColourPop started their Fall Edit collection with tons of new lippies and shadows! So of course, I had to add some new lippies to my collection! I purchased 4 (Viper, Love Bug, Baracuda, and Mama).
3 of the 4 of the lippies are the ultra matte formula. The fourth lippie is an ultra satin. I’ll describe this formula when I talk about that shade. Anyway, the ultra matte applies liquid and dry matte. The matte formula lasts all day without fading too much. The only issue is after about 6 hours of wear, your lips begin to feel dry. When that happens, I just apply a little chapstick and the dryness goes away and the color is still vivid!
Ultra Matte Lip in Viper, $6.00

This is actually my least favorite shade out of the group. It is a much lighter pink than I expected it to be and much lighter than the swatch on my forearm. It’s supposed to be a dusty rose, but on my skin tone, it just looks pink. LOL! One of my friends suggested that I line my lips with a darker color, maybe plum, and blend it with the lip color. So I will try that out and see if the color grows on me.
Ultra Satin Lip in Baracuda, $6.00
Barracuda is an ultra satin formula. It applies very smooth and soft on your lips. It is longwearing, however, it is not completely smudge proof. Baracuda is more of a dusty rose color in my opinion, and for me, more wearable. I actually think this one may be my favorite!
Ultra Matte Lip in Love Bug, $6.00
Love Bug is another shade that I like! It’s almost a nude on my lips which makes this a color I will wear when I do not want to really look like I am wearing lipstick. I will also use this shade to darken my lip colors. I applied it on top of Mama the other day and I loved the way it looked! I may actually be able to apply it on top of Viper to achieve the shade I really wanted Viper to be.
Ultra Matte Lip in Mama, $6.00
I love this color! I don’t normally wear orange shades, but this one just works for me! It is still a little bright, but I can work with it! I’ll definitely wear this shade throughout the fall and on sunny winter days! This shade will actually end up being worn year round. LOL!
Have you tried any of these shades? If so, which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
