Beauty Review: ColourPop Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin Lip

ColourPop Cosmetics is known for their affordable liquid lipsticks. They also offer a whole host of  superior quality makeup products. For a long time the Ultra Matte Lipsticks were the only liquid lipsticks they offered and then a few months ago they released the Ultra Satin Lipsticks. I am a huge fan of these $6 lipsticks and I will be discussing the difference between the two. I’ll be reviewing my top 7 favorites in my personal collection.

Ultra Matte Vs. Ultra Satin:

When I first found out about the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks, I was eager to try them because it was so hard to find an affordable matte lipstick. The formula is amazing and they offer a wide selection of colors. The best part is they stay on all day long no matter how many times you eat or drink. They only downside to them is that they are a little drying. To counteract that, I apply a thick layer of Vaseline Lip Therapy underneath. At first it may seem like the lipstick will have trouble sticking to your lips over top of the Vaseline, but once the lipstick dries it’ll stay on all day without the dryness!

When the Ultra Satin Lipsticks were released of course I couldn’t resist. The formula is fantastic as  well they also offer a wide variety of colors and continue to add new ones. ColourPop is great about always coming out with new colors. The Ultra Satin Lipsticks are not as drying but I will say that they do not last as long as the Ultra Matte ones. When you eat, the majority will stay on but you’ll probably need to reapply.

Overall, they are both great formulas and have their pros and cons. I like both product lines for different reasons and you cannot go wrong with either one! Don’t forget, they’re only $6.
