NEW ColourPop ULTRA MATTE LIPS: Review & Lip Swatches!

PLEASE NOTE: This review is on the ORIGINAL formula of these Ultra Matte Lips that came out in the very FIRST launch (Summer 2015). I realize that ColourPop has since changed their formula. I applaud ColourPop for listening to the honest feedback and updating their formula. I have used some of their newer shades, and YES, the formula is MUCH creamier, doesn’t flake, and lasts most of the day. Hooray for affordable, quality makeup! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for your honest review πŸ™‚

  2. tina__em__ says:

    Thank you for doing this video. I was reading some comments on other reviews and some say that if put a lip primer and or face primer they go on better. Have you tried them with a primer? And do they transfer after they dry?

  3. Roxyy Miles says:

    you don't have the shade beeper?

  4. Rosalina A says:

    Thank god I had only bought two!! and from your review, it was the best two in the collection! πŸ™‚

  5. is it just me or are they kinda hard to get off?

  6. Love your review so true I want to know what the formula is like

  7. thank you so much for talking about the formula! you are very detailed in your reviews and i will definitely watch more! i almost bought these but was worried about the formula. Ill stick to kvd!

  8. Pur :D says:

    Thank you for the truly honest review! Not much youtubers talk about the formula though Kathleenlights once said that the formula is really REALLY dry and some colors are cracky. I would never know which color is cracky or smooth or how dry it is if I didn't watch your review. Thank you again and from about 5-6 colors that i wanted to buy, now there are only 2 colors that i'm actually going to buy. They're Bumble and Avenue. πŸ˜€

  9. I love all of your reviews! You're so informative and I love that you spoke about the formula!!!!! Love you

  10. Zahra Sayyed says:

    Thank you so much for this review, you just saved me from wasting my money on a bunch of these !!!

  11. Ksunsetave says:

    Thank you for offering such a genuine and informational review. I am a liquid lipstick junkie and was intrigued by these but as you say in your video no one was commenting on the quality of the formula, they were all only doing swatch videos. I own Lime Crime, Dose of Colors and Jeffrey Star lipsticks, which are at a higher price point (but worth it), so the fact that the Colour Pop ones were so inexpensive made me consider trying out some shades that I wouldn't normally want to purchase for $20. But your honest review has convinced me save my hard earned money.

  12. Mari Erin says:

    could you do a video about like being an honest youtuber and your thoughts on some of the more fake ones out there? ur so real and down to earth and i trust you and think would be a really cool video

  13. Thank you Eshani! The strange thing was the 2 colours: Bumble and solow were the ones that caught my attention and you happened to say those 2 happen to be some of the best of the bunch. I'm getting those 2

  14. Farhana Azad says:

    Awesome Review ! Very helpful!

  15. Thank you so much for this honest review! I decided to get a few because i wanted to try them. i agree some of them are drying and I feel they got soooo much hype on YT and it was hard to figure out who was actually being honest and who wasn't. I'll be posting a review on the ones I got soon but again, thank you for posting this!

  16. thank you for your honest opinion ! <3 your awesome

  17. It seems that everyone is different. Many videos that I watched said that all the pigments are actually really good. You are the first to talk bad about this colour pop line. I haven't had any problems with my ultra matte. Maybe it's just your lips.

  18. I bought five of these and they work great for me. I bought five of the eight new shades they released and I'm excited for them.

  19. Just discovered your channel and I can already tell I'll be loving your videos! You're informative and honest which I respect πŸ™‚

  20. πŸ™ if only i had watched this before ordering 9 of these……..crying

  21. GirlyScout1 says:

    Excellent review and very much appreciated! Thank you!

  22. Bev Johnson says:

    You and thesocialitelife are two of the most honest people on the YT yall keep it 100% and that's why I love you guys!!! A lot of youtubers do lie about the products because they receive them for free I know there's is more honest youtubers out there but you guys are my fav <3

  23. shar_shar says:

    hi !! subscribed after hearing this honest review! its very helpful

  24. cokeunut says:

    As always excellent review. I've now narrowed it down to 4 colours based on your recommendations so now I don't have to break the bank and end up disappointed. Really appreciate the honesty and actual in depth review of each colour and the formula.

  25. I really loved your review. Although swatches are really nice, like you said, they don't say much. Your descriptions about the products were perfect. I also appreciated that you are extremely close to my skin tone because not all colors look the same on everyone. Overall great review.

  26. I've learned to not jump on the newest products before I see at least three reviews on the product. I don't get a lot of limited editions because of this reason but I've purchased enough bad high end make up to know better now. Your right a lot of you tubers just rave about products because they received them for free. It's frustrating, even youtubers I used to trust now just crank out sunshine and lollipops about every product. So tedious. Please stay real, we need more honest reviews on here.

  27. Thanks for your honesty. I think I'm going to pass and stick with ABH lippies.

  28. Katie Lantz says:

    I kept your review in the back of my mind when I was ordering and mostly got colors that are on your "good" list. I think I bought 6 of them and so far I've tried Solow, Trap, and Creeper, and those definitely are opaque, though there is still the issue when reapplying them that you had where they get bunchy and clumpy and just plain gross. Thanks for posting a 100% honest review. I know it's hard to say negative things about a brand that you like, but now the rest of us know what we're in for if we order them!

    Thank you so much for your honest review I was going to buy like eight of them but not anymore since I saw this
