Hello hello! I know there must be a LOT of review posts of this Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipsticks by other blogger but if you do stay around with me then.. *kiss kiss* THANK YOU! I lub yu ♥
Again with the liquid lipstick hype, comes Colourpop Cosmetics’ Ultra Matte Lip collection. It’s been out in the market for quite a while now and it’s getting a wholelotta’ love especially since it’s soooo affordable ($6) in contrast to the market price of most mid to high end liquid lipsticks ($19-20).
For the Ultra Matte Lip (UML) liquid lipsticks, Colourpop provides a wide array of shades ranging from nudes to deep dark vampy shades (which is now all the hype!)
Makeup trend nowadays are all about liquid lipsticks that dries matte. So many cosmetics companies are making this product, be it from high-end brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced and Kat Von D to drugstore brands like Rimmel, LA Girl and Colourpop. The idea of liquid lipsticks basically just, well, lipstick formula liquified. Most of the liquid lipsticks out there have matte finishes just because matte formulas lasts longer throughout the day so less touch-ups are needed, however there are also metallic and satin finishes like the Melted Lipsticks from Too Faced.
But today, I’m gonna be talking about drugstore brand everyone in Instagram have been raving about, LA Girl. This brand was famed for their HD Concealer which some claims a dupe for MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer. I’ve zero ideas why they put the word ‘matte’ and ‘gloss’ in one sentence, coz to me it doesn’t sound logical. How could you be a lip ‘gloss’ when you have a matte finish? Someone enlighten me that their definition of lip gloss might be that it glides on smoothly on the lips. Oh well then that does makes a little bit more sense. Carry on.
Hello hello! So you might have known the brand “Colourpop Cosmetics” by now if you watch Youtube Beauty Gurus’ videos (i.e Jaclyn Hill, Kathleen Lights, Nicole Guerriero, Shaaaanxo, etc). They have been given PR samples by the brand to try and promote it on Youtube or buy it themselves. Then the hype starts. Like, y’know how it works… When Jaclyn Hill raves about some product, YOU GET THAT PRODUCT. LOL. But seriously tho, when Youtube Beauty Gurus raves about some products, that particular product will immediately become out of stock or hard to get. Trust me, I made few purchases just because Jaclyn Hill swears by that product (I’m looking at you Becca Opal, Le Blanc De Chanel Base, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk!).
