So today I thought I’d show you guys my little collection of colourpop liquid lipsticks. I had a hard time finding good swatches of them on a medium tan skin tone, and I figured this may help some people. I have 7 super matte liquid lipsticks and 1 super satin liquid lipstick. I will be showing you guys swatches of them on my arm, a close up of the lips and a little snap of me wearing it so you can tell how they look on my skin tone and from there consider if it’d work for you.
I swatched the new ones from lightest to darkest but then I swatched the ones I already owned for last. I should have swatched them in order of shades…I was just so excited to swatch the new ones that I forgot what I was meaning to do . From swatches some of them look pretty similar such as Bianca and Time Square, and Avenue and Rooch. I will be showing you pictures in order of shades.
Lip pictures were taken outside in natural lightning and selfies were taken inside close to a window. I wanted to make sure you guys could get a good idea on how they look. Oh and by the way, my lip swatches don’t look as neat as I wish they did, I guess I need to practice on application, specially with the darker shades haha..
This shade looks lighter on my lips than when I swatched it. It is a very light pinky shade, and in my opinion it’s the lightest I can go in a lip colour, any lighter or more pink and I dont think id like it. I haven’t worn any light pink lipsticks in such a long time but I actually like this colour.
This one is a little darker than and not as pinky as Bianca. This is one of my favourite shades. I think it’s such a great nude for my skin tone and I’ve been wearing it often. On the lips it does not look as similar to the shade Bianca.
At first, I didn’t like this shade. It’s got a light purplish tone to it, so I thought it looked strange on my skin tone. I asked my boyfriend what he thought of it, and he actually really liked the colour so after that I felt more comfortable wearing this shade and it has grown on me.
This is a dark nude shade. It’s one of the first ones I owned by colourpop. When I purchased it online, I thought it’d be more of a light nude, something like Time Square. I didn’t think I’d wear this shade often but I ended up reaching for it all the time, I even mentioned it on my September favourites.
This is the one selfie I didn’t take in the same spot. I was wearing it at night, so I took it in my room with artificial lighting. This is the only satin liquid lipstick I purchased.
This shade looks similar to Frick’n Frack, but a little darker. When I purchased it, it was darker than I expected but I really do like the shade. This shade has made me want to try darker lipsticks, as I tend to go for dark pinks or nudes.
This is a deep red shade. I usually hate how red looks on me, I have tried different shades and brands but I always end up passing them along to my mom, who loves red lipsticks. But, I honestly don’t mind this shade, I kinda like it.
I thought this would look similar to Avenue, but it is a darker shade. I’m still not sure how I feel about this colour as I’ve never gone this dark with a lipstick. I will probably only wear it at night, but even then I don’t know if I can pull it off. It still is a nice shade.
The super matte ones are long wearing but they do come off when I eat or drink, but they don’t smudge everywhere and some even leave a lip stain behind so I don’t need to reapply every time, and I’m talking about having actual meals not just snacks or a few bites. The satin lipstick is not so resistant so I like to reapply it but it’s no big deal to me. I do apply a lip balm underneath the matte lipsticks as they can be drying and maybe that is the reason they come off when eating or drinking. The satin lipstick is comfortable to wear and I don’t need a lip balm to wear it.
I am really happy with the shades I purchased. I’m so excited for colourpop to come to Sephora! I will try to get my hands on a few things. I know they will be in stores in The States, it looks like we will only get them online in Canada, on the website it says online exclusive, but that is still great! No more paying for customs! Yay!
Have you tried any of their lip products? Which are your favourites?
