Dayum girl, just pop that colour on ya’ lips!
My obsession with lipsticks is not something that is recent, I can totally sleep with a nice red colour on my lips, especially if it’s Colour pop.
To be honest, I did not have any high expectations from this brand as their products are priced on the lower end and there is not much hype about their lipsticks – not that I know of.
In the interim of making a decision, I asked myself, if the question was even relevant or not; whether to choose Lime Crime or Color Pop. As much as I admire the texture of Lime Crime lipsticks, I was driven into the decision of ordering Colour Pop. Reason being, I was going on a trip and desperately needed an upgrade from my existing lipstick collection and at the same time, wanted something affordable so that I could spend more, like maybe shop for more lipsticks?! Hehe
After I made the tough decision of ordering six beautiful shades, I was hoping for them to instantly appear in front of me. My eyes were eager to see the delivery guy come at my doorstep and say ‘Dayum girl, here is what you wished for!’ *too dramatic*
Three days later, the package finally arrived; I picked the colour Lax to try on. This being my favorite color of them all, is the one, I was really looking forward to getting my hands on. The thin and lightweight formula of the lipstick glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves an intense pigment-rich color with a bold ultra-matte look. The lipstick was long lasting and stayed on my lips throughout the day but did notice that minor cracks had developed here and there by the end.
I have used these lipsticks for a duration of almost 4 months now and can proudly say that there has never been a single time when I was disappointed with them. However, I did notice that one of the lipstick started leaking since it was placed in my makeup bag for several weeks. I suggest to store these products upright and to always shake them before applying for best results.
Overall, I am happy to invest in Colour pop lipsticks’ and would encourage you to try this product if you’re looking for something long lasting and affordable. I always prefer lipsticks that stay longer and do not make my lips dry, Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lipsticks surely does that for me! (Tip: make sure to use a good lip balm before applying the lipstick).
These are the six shades from Color Pop: Lax, Solow, Seesaw, Scrooge, HighBall & Donut . They are all beautiful and have been added to my list of favorites but if I was forced to choose the best three, it would be Scrooge, Seesaw and of course Lax. Maybe a bit of Donut too. It’s difficult not to like them all, if you know what I mean!!!
Below is each product’s description:
Lax: Vampy blackened red
Solow: Neutral nude pink
Scrooge: Rich rosy pink
HighBall: Hot red-pink (Perfect summer lips)
Donut: Bright peach
Priced at $6 each
I can undoubtedly say that this was a great investment. I’d like to know which lipstick brand would you like me to try next, please feel free to share your comments in the text below

PS: Excuse the scratches on the product, they’ve been used for about 4 months now.
