Review // More Colourpop Ultra Mattes
I've been in love with Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte lipsticks ever since I made my first order. A couple weeks ago, they came out with a few limited edition colors. I ordered three that I thought I would love for the season. Similar to my last Colourpop review, I've swatched and review each of them! Click through for all the beautiful details.
From left to right, More Better (sold out), Chilly Chili, and Instigator. I've found that their colors online are sometimes a little different than in person, so I tried to base my order off of this Instagram post. Their site didn't (and still doesn't) have any lip swatches for the new colors, and yet I found that they again a little different in the flesh than on Instagram.
Instigator is described as a mid-tone peachy nude. It's much more coral-y than I had hoped, but I think the color is growing on me. I don't see myself wearing it much during winter, but will be great for spring!
As far as wearability, it's the usual deal. I wore it all day at work and it stayed while drinking coffee, eating trail mix, and even tacos. Yeah. The application was easy and dries fast. My favorite thing about the lighter Ultra Mattes is that they don't seem to feather or stain!
Chilly Chili is described as muted plummy brown. That's pretty accurate, and seems like a half way point between Kapow and Limbo. The color is rich and I love it!
My favorite part? It matches my hair color pretty well. Dang! The coverage on this is awesome, but I would recommend a clear liner just to keep it from feathering.
More Better is described as a deep violet wine. This one isn't as deep a tone as I had hoped — it's almost more pink-y than wine-y. Granted, the color is beautiful, but I'm not much of a pink person.
Even as a darker color, this one has great and even coverage. The biggest part that bugs me is how quickly and intensely it stains! My lips are pink forever after wearing this one. It definitely needs a clear liner to prevent feathering.
Overall, I'm still happy with all my Colourpop lip colors. I really want to branch out and try some of their other products. Have you tried the Ultra Mattes or other lip colors?
