ColourPop is rocking and how! These guys consistently bring out some great new products and their latest is the Ultra Blotted Lip, which is basically a fancy name for a lip stain. There are some differences between the ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip and the lip stains that are in the market though. The ColourPop ones are more matte, long-wearing and transfer-proof. Plus, the texture is kinda watery and they feel really light on the lips. In terms of pigmentation, these are less opaque than the ColourPop Ultra Matte or Ultra Satin Lips and you need to swipe a couple of times to get full coverage but once you do, these last for hours.
ColourPop was apparently inspired by the “popsicle pout” trend in Asia and that is why they created these lip products. They also said that the plush formula makes lips look a lot smoother and fills in fine lines and I agree to that. There are eight shades in the Ultra Blotted Lip range and they are priced at $6. Unfortunately, all of them are currently out of stock on the ColourPop website so you have to wait till they are back to buy them or you can get from the many Instagram sellers that stock these products.
Here are the shades that I have:
- Split – This is my favorite of the lot. It is a mix of purple, magenta and berry and great for the Indian skin tone
- Out of Beach – A bright coral, perfect to be worn on a beach holiday!
- Doozy – ColourPop describes it as a warm rose
- Slide – A mix of pink and mauve. This is a bit light on my NC43.5 skin tone.
Here are the swatches.
And this is what Split looks on me.
