If you haven’t heard of Colourpop… You’re missing out. It’s an online-only brand of cosmetics, their best-sellers being Ultra-Matte liquid lipsticks and they have every color imaginable. I think my current count is about 17 lipsticks, including Ultra Matte, Ultra Satin, Ultra Glossy and their Lippie Stix. They’re only $6 which is just an excuse to make myself feel better about how many I’ve purchased in such a short period of time. In this post, I wanted to list my absolute favorites – mainly because of the shade, but also because how comfortable it is to wear them.
Beeper is known and loved my many. It is a dark (for me) nude shade that goes perfectly with whatever makeup and outfit you’re wearing for the day. I work a 9 to 6 job and whenever I wear Beeper (or any of the other lipsticks) it lasts me all day long. There is sometimes a little bit of cracking, but there are a couple of reasons for this and not all of them are Colourpop’s fault. I pick the skin of my lips a lot, it IS a matte lip, and I do spend over eight hours at work.
Bianca is also a nude, but more of a pinky nude, unlike Beeper. I sometimes resist wearing Bianca because I think that if I’m not wearing enough face makeup, it will make me look washed out. Again, I think it’s a shade that will suit a lot of people and a lot of skin tones.
Cami is my new found love. I don’t know how to explain it, maybe I’ll post a picture of me wearing it one day. I bought it for no apparent reason – I hadn’t read or heard of any other blogger talking about it, but I thought the shade looked pretty enough on screen. After I tried it on…. I fell in love and had friends asking me what shade I was wearing and where it was from.
My favorite mauve-pink lipstick. I have a hard time wearing dark shades on a daily basis because I have very full lips and I just feel like it looks very… THERE. Unlike people who have thinner lips that can get away with wearing dark shades without blinding people or looking like they’re going clubbing at 9 in the morning.
5. More Better
I am obsessed with berry shades and I think they really suit me (but what do I know). More Better is kind of a berry shade with a little bit of pink on it and I LOVE wearing it. If you would like to see my full Colourpop collection, leave a comment below!
