OK, so at this point I have to admit that I have a bit of a problem. Well, my name is Kitty and I am addicted to Colourpop. I've been doing my Christmas shopping and I couldn't resist a sneaky treat for me too, because I a have approximately no will power when it comes to lip products.
I ordered a few different types of lip products, two lippie stix, one holiday special ultra satin lips, one ultra matte lip, four ultra metallic lips, and one Hello Kitty ultra metallic lip. They had an offer on that meant the ultra metallic lips were free over Black Friday depending on how much you spent!
In the ultra metallics, from top to bottom, I got Man Eater, Zebra, Kween, Mug Shot and Surprise.
They look quite similar in the packaging, but once swatched all the nuances of the colours are much more obvious. Man Eater is a light bronze with gold tones, Zebra is a very cold toned brown with purple hints, Kween is a gold toned pinky colour, Mug Shot is a red toned bronze, and Surprise is a gorgeous red with gold tones. They don't dry down completely so aren't transfer proof, but they are so perfect for the holidays. Surprise in particular is the perfect Christmas colour!
Next up are the limited edition ultra satin in Wink, and the ultra matte in Are & Be. I am in love with the matte black holiday packaging, it's so different for Colourpop, but very to my taste. These look incredibly similar here, but I've swatched them side by side in the swatch coming up so you can see how different they are.
In the Lippie Stix I had to go with purple tones, my ultimate faves in lip colours. I got Back Up which is a matte X formula, and Leather in the matte formula. Having tried these the matte X is a new favourite of mine, the formula is so delicious and comfortable.
L- R Back Up, Leather, Wink & Are & Be.
You can see the differences between the two liquid lips here, Wink is much more pink toned, whereas Are & Be is more of an aubergine colour. Leather is a very classic bright purple, and Back Up is a lovely purple toned shade.
Here's all the colours swatched alongside each other. I am so in love with all the Colourpop lip products. I feel like I need them all!
