Fall Edit by ColourPop Review + Swatches

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!

February Favorites!

It’s that time again! I swear these months are flying by. I feel like it was just yesterday when I recapped my January favorites! But, nonetheless, lets get into some of my favorite products!

ColourPop Ultra Matte in LAX, $6.00

I had been searching high and low for a matte, blackened red lippie for the LONGEST! When I saw one of my friend’s wearing the exact color I had been looking for, I had to ask her what the color and brand was. She told me and I immediately went online to purchase it! This is my absolute favorite lipstick now! I wear it all of the time and just love how sexy I feel wearing it! I love that it lasts all day without fading away. It’s just the best ever! I purchased this lippie in Guess as well. Click here to check out that color!

Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind in Pink Sequin | $21.00

If you read my ipsy review from this month then you know how much I LOVED this lip gloss! It is very smooth and so glossy! The shimmer in it is POPPIN without being overbearing! I just love, love, love this and I’ve gotten soooo many compliments every time I’ve worn it!

Olay Fresh Effects Bright on Schedule! Eye Awakening Cream, $14.99

I have never really used an eye cream before, but I am glad I decided to purchase this one! I use it in the morning to reduce puffiness and make my eyes look brighter. Once you open the tube, you squeeze a little product out and use the tri-roller ball to massage the cream in. The cream, in conjunction with the metal roller balls, gives a cooling effect to your eye area. My eye area feels super refreshed after applying this! It is a sheer cream and absorbs quickly into your skin. It is oil free which means that it will not clog your pores! Also, it has a very pleasant cucumber scent.

ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lip Color Review + Swatches

Last month I got a chance to try out ColourPop Cosmetics lipsticks for the first time and I fell in absolute LOVE with them! The quality was fantastic for the price and the color range is so broad! There is a literally a color that will look good on anybody’s complexion and will be perfect for any occasion. So after that purchase, of course I had to buy more lip products!

This time, in addition to their lippie stix (there will be a review of these later), I had to try out the Ultra Matte Lip Colors. The ultra matte lip colors come in a liquid to matte formula. They have a doe foot wand applicator which makes applying the lip color super easy and precise. The formula is not drying like other liquid to matte formulas and the color payoff is super rich and opaque! Also, the color lasts forever without fading! I ate and drank and really didn’t have to reapply. It’s best that you exfoliate your lips prior to applying and apply a lip primer to make the application smooth and less drying on your lips.

Now, on to the good stuff! I purchased these in the colors LAX and Guess. LAX is a deep blackened red…almost like a rust color. It is so beautiful on! It looks great on all complexions! I have been looking for a deep red like this and am so glad I finally found a winner! I have worn this color so many times within the last couple of weeks. It is my new go to!

Guess is a blackened purple. Super vampy and super sexy! I love a dark purple lip and this one is definitely it! I used to wear Cyber by MAC as my go to dark lip, but over time, it just seemed to not be as dark as I wanted it to be. Enter Guess by ColourPop and I am sold! It is my new go to color for a night out! I cannot wait to wear it on my next night out on the town.
