If you remember, the first time I tried anything from ColourPop was back in November. (You can check that post out here if you wish.) While I loved the colors, the formula of the Ultra Matte lipstick was just a tad too drying for my taste. The Ultra Satin lipstick was much more comfortable, and Baracuda is now one of my favorite fall shades! Anyway, after talking with some fellow blog friends, they recommended that I give some of their Ultra Metallic lipsticks a try. I made my purchase at the time their Winter 2016 collection debuted, so I picked up the new Ultra Glossy lip as well.
The Ultra Metallic lipsticks have a long wearing, metalized formula that is packed with high impact metallic pearls. They have a thin, fluffy like texture when you first apply them to the lips. However, shortly after they dry down a bit to a comfortable matte feel. They are easy to apply and have a smooth, even formula, but ate not fully transfer proof. They do wear extremely well for about 5 hours without getting too uncomfortable. I think they actually get more glittery as time goes on and the pigment wears down. – $6
The Ultra Glossy lip is extremely shiny with a cushion like feel. It is VERY low on the sticky scale which is a big plus for me. Even though it isn’t tacky, it still lasts a good 4-5 hours on me, leaving behind a lovely stain. Furry is now on sale for $4.80!
- Furry (vegan) is a rich berry/burgundy with fuchsia shimmer.
- Kween (vegan) is a warm marsala metallic with gold shimmer.
- 3 – Way is a dusty plum metallic with gold sparkles.
Overall, I really do like the metallic formula, but for me the glossy one is the best! I do need to use a lip liner with it though to prevent bleeding. I’m definitely going to be picking a few more up next time I place an order!
Have you tried any Metallic or Glossy lipsticks from ColourPop? Which do you like best?
