I recently grabbed two new shades of the Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks in Naked Ladies and Brooklyn. Today, after using them for two 12 hour long Office Days I’m here to review the shades and put up the lovely pictures for you .
Colourpop is a new brand that’s targeted for the colorful women, and believe me, they are really colorful. If you’ve been crushing over The Anastasia Beverley Hills Liquid lipsticks or the Gerard Cosmetics ones, these are a good competition. At nearly a fraction of the price, you will get great color payoff and nice staying power. The colors were too similar for the camera to pick up but after a few tries ,I got it right 😛 .
Here are some pictures of the color and how they look on my wrist :
Price of Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks : 6$
Can you see that they both look so much similar ?
Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick Naked Ladies :
The first shade I received from the seller (Reseller) was Naked Ladies and I loved it. It’s just that ‘Me’ shade – a bright pink with a warm undertone, which is nearly a coral shade. Quite confusing , but on me, it’s a pretty warm coral shade that I love. The coverage is good and the texture is buttery. I do have to work to apply it and before the formula dries it’s a bit of problem keeping myself from pressing lips (like we’re all so habituated with normal lippies). Once it’s dry it stays there without moving a millimeter. After a full course meal, you will need to reapply in the center but even when it’s faded it leaves a strong hint of color. In direct sunlight, it’s more red than pink and even then, I’m happy cause I love red. And I also loved how the shade looked on my recently

Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick Brooklyn :
Brooklyn is so similar in the tube that once I saw them both I felt I somehow got the same colors. But the Brooklyn one is a bright cool toned pink with wee bit of a hint of coral(If that makes any sense) 😛 . I found the application of Brooklyn tougher since it was going streaky and also left less stain than naked ladies .
The staying power was good, but I guess it was less than the Naked Ladies shade.
Formula of Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks :
The formula of both lipsticks were creamy and easy to use, I needed only two swipes to get full color and please keep in mind that I have pigmented lips, so for lips which are not pigmented, even one swipe could be enough. The formula dried to a matte look but not very stiff and uncomfortable matte. It did transfer a bit but stayed put for the long wear during office and survived lunch too . These lipsticks tend to highlight dry lips so exfoliation is a must.
Should You Get Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks?
If you love liquid lipsticks but are not ready to shell out Rs 1000+ / 2000+ for Anastasia Beverley Hills or Gerard Cosmetics, get these. You will also find that the price is usually around 600 – 650 Rs from the Indian resellers. The lipstick is drying so before and after exfoliation and moisturizing the lips with coconut oil or lip balm is needed. But beware, there are many dupes of Colourpop cosmetics, so I suggest your buy from authentic sellers who buy directly from the website. Or place the order yourself from the brand.
