ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips

I finally tried out ColourPop liquid lipsticks! I got 3 full size lipsticks and two mini kits (10 mini lipsticks). Check out my video for lip swatches and review:

Also check out my ColourPop dupes video and I'm also giving away a Kylie Lip Kit of choice (Candy K or Kourt K). Giveaway ends on July 31st 2016 at 11:59 PM EST.

Packaging & Price
Each full size lipstick retails for $6 and contains 0.11 oz of product. Anastasia Beverly Hills lipsticks contain same amount of product but retails for $20 USD each. 

ColourPop also has two mini kits (Foxy Kitty) that each retails for $20. 

Each full lipstick contains 0.11 oz of product, while a mini lipstick contains 0.0352 oz but each kit contains a kit with one lipstick containing 0.0317 oz of product.

In total you get about 0.1725 oz of product for $20, which is slightly more than a full size lipstick that retails for $6 but you do get much less product with these kits for the price. However, you get to try out 5 shades and I personally don't go through most of my full size lipsticks anyway, so this is perfect.

Review
I love the fact these lipsticks are pigmented and dry down to a matte finish. I've heard most drugstore lipsticks aren't completely matte, so I'm glad these are fairly inexpensive and matte. These can dry out your lips, so I'd recommend exfoliating and moisturizing before apply them. I don't really find them uncomfortable on the lips though. 
As for application, I noticed some shades (mostly lighter shades) aren't as opaque, so I did have to build them up. Also, these do transfer so they aren't as long wearing as I was hoping they would be. However, if I don't eat these can last on my lips for about 4 to 5 hours and they fade away nicely.
Pros 
  • Pigmented
  • Matte
  • Decent wear time These lipsticks usually last me 4-5 hours if I don't eat but they do start to fade away once I eat. I like how they fade away nicely.
  • Price: I love how they're reasonably priced than other lipsticks.
  • Variety of shades: They have over 40 shades to choose from.
Cons  
  • Drying: Some of these lipsticks feel drying and emphasize lip lines. Make sure you moisturize your lips before applying them! I'd also recommend exfoliating if you want a smooth application.
  • Transfer: These do transfer, so I have to make sure each time I eat that I don't get it all over my face.

ColourPop Limbo vs Kylie Lip Kit True Brown
A lot of people have been comparing ColourPop Limbo to Kylie Lip Kit in True Brown. Both lipsticks contain the same amount of product but check out my video to find if the shade and formula are the same.
