Three years ago, I tried Colourpop liquid lipstick and fell in love immediately! The packaging is cute and the pricing is affordable. You get ultra opaque color that swipes on lips effortlessly and it lasts all day! What's not to love?
What's more is that I get asked all the time, what are you wearing on your lips and why have you not touched up yet, like even once?! This lipstick is so longwearing it's convenient on those days you just want to apply it and forget about it. I never have to go look in the mirror to see if it's on my teeth or if it's a bold shade like red, never do I have to see if it's bleeding or feathering, I'm just obsessed with these lippies!
I've managed to collect quite a few shades and always take advantage of the numerous sales Colourpop has, just like the 30% off liquid lipsticks sale going on right now. I'm all about getting the most bang for your buck and why not build a collection with affordable makeup and beauty essentials with every chance you get?
The ultra mattes are super matte. So yes, you have to do a bit of lip prep. I have dry hair, dry skin and yes, dry lips, extremely dry lips! If I can wear these, pretty much anyone can! For me, a bit of lip prep prior to application ensures the best wear for the ultimate liquid lip.
Finally, you can layer a gloss, lip topper or lip balm over these liquid lipsticks. It will wear down the lipstick a notch but it still is long wearing. Sometimes if the liquid lipstick does start cracking, my fave technique is to just take a makeup wipe and take it all off. The wipe removes the lipstick and exfoliates the lips, too. Then, simply reapply the liquid lipstick and it looks nice and fresh! I only do this when I'm wearing the lipstick long hours, like 10+ hours or something. Otherwise, it's not necessary.
Anyways, here's my top Colourpop faves with everything from nudes to bolds and a little bit about each shade and why I love 'em so much!
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip - Monday (warm peachy beige):

Ultra matte lipstick in Monday is hands down, my fave. This go-to warm, peachy beige is the perfect neutral shade. It doesn't wash out your complexion like chalky cool toned nudes and it's not an overpowering shade at all. This warm toned versatile shade can be dressed up or down and it'll compliment any look.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip - Thursday (red violet):

Ultra matte lip in Thursday is bright and bold and you'll get immediate barbie doll vibes with this perky shade. This statement shade is pretty and feminine and gives you an instant pop of color. Pair with flirty lashes for the ultimate date night look. This shade is really an accessory, I can't describe it any better than that!
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip - Times Square (muted pink beige):

Ultra matte lip in Times Square is a barely there, sexy nude. This muted, pink beige is the perfect compliment to smoky eyes. This lip shade gives just enough color to where your lips aren't totally bare but it also doesn't take away from the rest of the look, which I love. This is definitely a shade that can be worn from day to night, no wonder it's a 2018 Glamour Beauty Award winner!
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip - Love Bug (rich mahogany):

Everyone from Kim K to Rihanna has been rocking and bringing back the '90s lip. From soft matte browns to deep decadent hues - there's a shade for all. Ultra matte lip in Love Bug is a rich mahogany that gives total '90s vibes. Worn with a lip topper, it has a glam appeal and on its own it has the rustic, grunge feel to it. Definitely not a shade I wear all the time but when I do, I feel completely bold and badass!
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in London Fog (pinky red):

This ultra satin lip in London Fog is just stunning! The shade is highly pigmented and the formula is so comfortable and longwearing. I love that with this shade you can go classic pin-up or totally soft glam - so many different ways to wear it! This pinky red hue is a classic staple that every women should most definitely own.
Colourpop X Alexis Ren Ultra Satin Lip - Bare Necessities (peachy pink nude):
Wearing Bare Necessities // Colourpop // In Bare Necessities
This ultra satin lip in Bare Necessities was part of the Alexis Ren collaboration collection with Colourpop. This peachy pink nude is creamy with bold, opaque color. Peach is perfect when you can't decide between nudes and pinks yet the neutral shade compliments everything and flatters every skin tone! Forever obsessed with this feminine shade!
I love that the ultra satin liquid lipsticks have the same percentage of pigments as Ultra Matte lips but are way more comfortable and less drying on the lips because of the moisturizing ingredients added in the formula. I would say the wear is about the same, too! So if you're not into mattes, try these satin-mattes.
