Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip | Review + Swatches

As you should know by now from the previous posts here and here, I am a HUGE fan of the Colourpop brand, particularly their lip products #LipAddictProblems.  Their Ultra Matte Lip liquid lipsticks are no exception and as you can see below, I have collected quite a few so far.

If you’ve been thinking about picking some up now is the time because they are now back in stock on the Colourpop website (well at least they are right now as I’m typing this).  I got the email earlier today and while I haven’t got around to doing an actual lip swatch video, I figured it’s only right to show y’all these babies just in case you wanted to get your Fabolous on and just throw it in the bag!

My Quick review on the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip collection

I freaking love them!!!  Sure there are a few shades that may be hit or miss but for $6 a pop you really can’t go wrong. I’ve has more hits than misses personally and if you’ve been here for a while you may have even seen them featured as some of Kay’s Ways Baes (aka my favorites).

They truly are Ultra Matte as their name states (although the latest shades that were released took a little longer to fully dry & does have a little transfer).  They are long lasting but not uncomfortable feeling.  Most importantly (to me anyway) the colors are opaque and just gorgeous! See me rocking some of them for yourself over on my Instagram feed here, here, here, here and here).  And if you clicked any of those be sure to follow while you’re there!!

If you’re new to Colurpop’s website, be sure to use the code THANKSBABE to get $5 off your purchase and in CP money that’s a free lippie or eyeshadow.  Make sure you check out my previous posts with the swatches from their Super Shock Cheek collection as well as swatches (AND possible dupes) from their Lippie Stix collection as well!

Yes my name is Kara and I’m addicted to Colourpop (trust me after your first order you will be too soon!).

My Latest Colourpop Haul


Be prepared to practice patience when ordering from Colourpop.  In some of the makeup groups I’m in on Facebook, I’ve heard some people who have waited up to two weeks before they received their orders.  I can say since my last complaint about customer service they’ve stepped their game up and either sent a freebie in the long awaited packages or issued a special coupon channeling their inner Lil Wayne, you know as a Sorry For the Wait peace offering.

Yet that’s not always the case.  Please believe I did the happy dance when I placed my most recent order and got shipment notificiation the very next day.  Just thought I’d throw that out there because I’m one of the impatient ones but keep in mind they’re shipping from Cali (yes they’re made in the USA!!!) plus still a fairly new company (they recently celebrated their one year anniversary).  Whenever they do arrive though, you’ll see they’re well worth the wait!

    • Kay’s Ways

      Oh my goodness, YASSSS! The only reason I haven’t dived into the shadows is I prefer palettes but I sometimes use the blushes for shadows and they are the business! Thanks so much Allison!

    I haven’t tried this brand before. I really like the “Kapow” color! I love a pretty pale shade.
