Colourpop Haul & First Impression | Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks & Eyeshadow

Colourpop is a very affordable brand; Their eyeshadows retail for about $5 each and their lipsticks retail around the same price. I placed an order the day the ultra matte liquid lipsticks launched. Their website was down for a few hours and I was able to place an order when they fixed the site. I saw a few videos about these lipsticks during the meantime and I was sold. The range has so many different colors from bold to very natural shades. All of the shades of the Ultra Matte Lip sold out within several hours. These Liquid lipsticks retail for $6 each so I couldn't say no. The Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick line has a large selection of shades- about 25 shades. I purchased two shades from their line: Limbo and Tulle. I also picked an eyeshadow from their supershock line called Lala.

Lala is a shimmery rose gold and it is crazy pigmented. The pigmentation really impressed me. These eyeshadows are a creme to powder finish and it does not budge. All of the eyeshadows in this collection have a pretty impression on top which goes away with use. I'm very happy with this eyeshadow and I want to buy a few more shades.

Limbo is the shade that stood out to me the most. It looks like an exact dupe for Limecrime Salem. It is a deep dark brown. I LOVE this color but I hate the formula. I heard a honest review of these colors from MannyMua on his snapchat which he said that these were very drying. He received a lot of criticism from saying this but what he said was completely true. These lipsticks have a doe foot applicator and it dries very quickly on your lips as you're applying it. Be very careful applying a second coat because it will flake off if you do. Once it dried, my lips felt tight and uncomfortable. It emphasized every line on my lips. I would say that this is transfer-proof because it refuses to come off unless you remove it with an oil based remover. Definitely make sure you exfoliate your lips and moisturize. I will be applying a lip primer under these lipsticks and hopefully it should help.

Tulle is a gorgeous color- it is a dark mauve color. It is a bit darker than I expected but it's due the swatches that I saw online. This color is so gorgeous but the formula sucks as well. Both of these lipsticks are pigmented and it only requires one coat but just make sure to work fast since it dries quickly.

I'm very pleased with Lala- I love rose gold shades and I want to pick up more colors. However, Limbo and Tulle are a different story. There were a few other shades that I wanted but after trying these two I don't think I'll be buying any more shades. The formula is what makes me hate them. I honestly don't think they are worth it.
