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 is on a roll! These people are bringing out new products practically every two weeks and one of their latest launches is the new ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips range. The lip glosses have a $6 price tag, available in 21 shades and in four finishes – Sheer, Sheer-Metallic, Crème, and Ultra-Metallic.
About ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips

- Sheer: Transparent gloss with a hint of color that does not contain any pearl or glitter
- Sheer-Metallic: Transparent gloss with multi-dimensional glitter
- Crème: Medium coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearl or glitter
- Ultra-Metallic: Full coverage gloss with a smooth pearl metal finish that does not contain any glitter.
ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips is a new range of liquid lipsticks launched recently and I love this formula! They are very pigmented, set to a comfortable satin/matte finish and do not dry out lips. The only issue with the Ultra Satins is that they transfer. As ColourPop puts it, the colors “kiss and tell”. They don’t go all over the place but yes, if you’ve had a very heavy meal, then do take a mirror out and check your face once!
You will see a lot of ColourPop on the blog because I’m clearly obsessed with this brand! I love their lipstick shades since most of them go very well with my skin tone. They are quite affordable (even if you get them from a reseller in India) and the quality is good for the price. You do need to prep your lips by exfoliating and applying a balm first because they tend to dry out lips but overall they are nice atleast the ones I picked up. Apparently the new shades have a better formula than the older ones.
I started my ColourPop collection with Scrooge and StingRaye which I wrote about in this post and now I have four more to show you. This time, say hello to LAX, Creeper, Bumble and Chilly Chili.
One of the most exciting launches of 2015 was definitely the Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. At $6 (around Rs 400 when converted), they are one of the cheapest liquid lipsticks in the market. The only issue is availability in India. Colourpop does not ship to India so if you want to get their products, you have to rely on folks coming over from the US or local sellers. I’ve been wanting to try Colourpop for ages and without the help of S’s sister, it would have never been possible. Thank you so much Di for bringing them to me 🙂
