I have been eyeing a particular shade from Colourpop in their ultra-matte range and when about two weeks back Colourpop had free shipping in US I grabbed one in the shade BUMBLE. So here is a little story while getting this lipstick. As soon as their free shipping promo started I went to their website and added this lipstick in my cart and what I see when I scroll down there is APPLY COUPON. I was wondering whether my coupon will work or not but there is no harm in trying so I had $5 coupon code and after typing the code I click apply and BAM!! It was accepted and I literally paid $1 for this liquid lipstick. Later, Colourpop disabled the coupon which was disappointing but I was glad I ordered very early and my code worked.
Coming back to the lipstick, BUMBLE is beautiful dusty terracotta with warm undertones and this ultra-matte formula. The consistency is slightly thin and can be tricky to apply but you could use a lip liner first to gives edges a clean look or you can use a lip brush and line your lips. One coat gives you a opaque coverage and they dry so quick. Avoid layering coats to reduce the chances of cracking or flaking. I have had no trouble in applying however I highly recommend prepping your lips first. Exfoliate your lips before applying any liquid lipstick as it gives a smooth application and there is no flakiness or dryness. You could also apply a lip balm if you are in a hurry.
When it comes to its staying power, it stays good for 6-8 hours and after 8 hours also there was little fade of color due to the greasy food I was hogging that day 😀 I was totally impressed by its staying power. You might need an oil based remover to remove the lipstick effortlessly. Coconut oil or olive oil works equally good. There is no fragrance to worry about.
The packaging is clear plastic with iridescent lettering. It has nice size doe foot applicator which makes application simple. This is such a gorgeous color and will look flattering on all skin tones. I can’t recommend enough how good and affordable is Colourpop.
Which is your favorite product from Colourpop? Have you tried any other liquid lipstick? Thanks for reading!
