I’m reviewing my first Colourpop Ultra Satin lip. I dont know why I kept putting off trying the Ultra Satin range. It’s a non drying, more comfortable version of the Ultra Matte lips from Colourpop. Its not transfer resistant but still stays on long. I wanted a lighter colour like Echo Park but that was out of stock so I went for Alyssa instead. Alyssa is a collection by Kathleen Lights in collaboration with Colourpop. She is such a cute Youtuber and I love watching her videos. Read on to know more about this one 🙂
Price – $6
Availability – www.colourpop.com, shopyouraddiction Insta page, www.beautytales.co.in which is also an Insta page but also has a website
The Ultra satin lip comes in the same packaging as the Ultra Matte one. I love the Ultra Satin finish a lot more than the Ultra Matte one because it is so comfortable and does not dry out my already dry lips. This colour is a light pink colour with a warm undertone. It suits my complexion so much. The colour is quite similar to Solow (Review here) but somehow its undertone suits me a lot more than Solow does. I think it would suit Indian skintones but will definitely wash out the darker skintones.
The pigmentation of this is very nice and glides one so smoothly. It covers the lip pigmentation properly and you don’t need to build up the colour. The colour is true to its name ‘satin’ and has a slight sheen to it. It’s neither shiny nor too matte. Does not emphasize the lip lines at all and neither settles into them. Its not transfer proof and does transfer to cups and spoons etc. I don’t really mind it at all. I love the colour and finish of this. The applicator is doe foot which picks up the product properly.
The staying power is about 5-6 hours and definitely fades quicker if you eat or drink in between. It does not bleed out of your lips at all. I am very impressed with this range and I will totally buy more colours. I think if you find Ultra matte lipsticks very drying then you should go for this range because it combines the staying power of a matte lip with the comfortable feel of a lipstick.
