The 80’s frost and metallic lipstick finishes have made a rather surprising comeback in the recent months and I have jumped on the bandwagon too. My metallic lipstick obsession started off with the Milani Amore Mattalics Lip Cremes and I got two of those. When I heard that ColourPop is also coming out with Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks, I had to get all four shades. Since I got them just two days back, I’m not writing a full review but sharing my initial thoughts. I got them from the IG store @shopyouraddiction for Rs 720 each.
ColourPop describes the Ultra Metallic Liquid Lipsticks as “super intense with high impact metallic pearls and a non-drying formula that is extremely long-wearing but it is not completely transfer resistant“. There are four shades available (out of stock currently on the website)
- 3-Way – reddish-berry with gold metallic shimmer
- Kween – reddish-copper with pink and gold shimmer
- Maneater – bronze-brown with plum undertones and a golden metallic sheen
- Zebra – reddish-brown with a metallic sheen
The pigmentation of these lipsticks is not as great as the rest of the ColourPop liquid lipsticks. You do need to swipe couple of times to get an even coverage. However, these are true metallic lipsticks and your lips will really shimmer and shine. The good thing is that they don’t have a gritty feeling. The lipsticks dry down to a semi-matte finish and do not dry out lips. Since they have the same formula as the Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick, they are not transfer proof though. Here are the swatches.
