My ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Collection Swatches & Review

I most definitely don't have the largest collection of ColourPop products, but today I wanted to share with you some of ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lip products that I own and like. During my most recent purchase, I also was able to get the newest Ultra Matte Lip in the color Time Square and Love Bug, so I wanted to show you swatches and comparisons of those two shades as well. When I buy ColourPop products, I depend a lot on blog posts and lip swatches, so today I also will share with you lip swatches and comparisons to help anyone confused about how a certain color compares to another and how it actually looks on the lips. Before I go further, I do want to say that because these matte liquid lipsticks are very long lasting, my already dry lips became super flaky and looked terrible as these swatches progressed (I did not bother to put on lip balm), so please just ignore all that hot mess.

Just laying them all out like this made me gasp and ask, do they even look all that different on my lips?! Doesn't this look like a color spectrum for nude pinks and reds? Do I really need every single one of these colors? Most probably not, so today's post is also going to help me figure out which ones I don't need in my life and which ones I do.

So here are the swatches for all of these colors. Seriously, from Midi to Time Square, you can barely see differences, but these differences however subtle they may look on my arm, do have significant effect on my lips (at least to me). The same is true for all the red shades.

Weho is the only product that is a Lip Gloss and I just added that in because it is one of my favorite lip glosses out there! I absolutely adore this because not only is it a perfect color to use on its own or on top of any of these nude lipsticks, it really helps my lips look plumper and of course, more moisturized. In the lip swatches you'll see later on this blog post, I have compared Midi with Trap and Bianca with Time Square, and you'll be able to check out how these apply quite differently on my lips.

Although these red lipsticks look very similar, they also look very different on my lips. I'll be comparing More Better with Love Bug, and LAX with Avenue.

Here's how ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Vice looks on my lips. This is a super pale pink and I dare not use this alone as in real life it looks like I just applied a pale pink concealer all over my lips. However, it definitely is a nice lipstick to layer to tone up any liquid lipstick that is a bit too dark.

Here's the comparison between ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Trap vs Midi. Trap  looks more mauvey and under natural lighting, it even looks a bit too gray for my liking. I would say that Midi is slightly more wearable than Trap, although with both I do find the need to go a bit strong with my eye makeup to make me look not too washed out.

Here's the comparison between ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Time Square vs Bianca. Bianca and Trap both have mauvey undertones with Bianca being slighter darker. Time Square is less mauvey than Bianca and is lighter than Midi. This is the newest color to ColourPop's Ultra Matte collection, and I can honestly say that for me this is my favorite and the most wearable color of all the nude/mlbb-ish pinks.

Here's a comparison between ColourPop  Ultra Matte Lip in Bumble vs Solow. I do like both colors a lot, and I have worn Solow many many times! I found Bumble to be perfect during those colder months, and I like how it isn't too dark, too pink, or too red!

Here's the comparison between ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Love Bug vs More Better. Now that I think of it, I should've compared More Better with Bumble but those two didn't look too similar in my arm swatches. Anyhow, Love Bug has more orange undertone to it, and More Better is a nice deep rosy color that is darker than Bumble and a bit more mauvey. I actually really like Love Bug as brick orange red lipsticks are my favorite lipsticks to wear in the fall! It does pull a bit when it dries down, but with a lip balm underneath it wasn't as flaky as say, LAX or Midi.

Here's the comparison between ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in LAX vs Avenue. Avenue has got to be the prettiest and the most true red lipstick in ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lip collection and I really like how it just brightens up my skin tone! LAX is a very gorgeous dark red lipstick that is perfect for that grunge look, but I find this one to be the hardest one to apply of all the colors I own. I used to think that darker colors were easier to apply than lighter colors as I have found many lighter colors to settle on the lines of my lips and exaggerate the dryness, but LAX, even though it is the darkest color in my ColourPop collection, does all that.

And lastly, I just wanted to show ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in Weho. This was taken after I tried on all the other lipsticks, so my lips were very dry and sore, but Weho makes it look as though this was the first lipstick I tried on! :) LOVE this. If you were to pick one lipstick, get this one (ironic how the title of this blogpost is "My ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Collection..." and I end it by saying get this lip gloss!).

  1. All of the swatches look so good on your arm! My favorite swatch is probably Bianca. I love how you did some of the swatches on just half your lip so we could see how similar the shades are. I tried one of these ultra matte lippies from Colourpop but I hated the formula. It was so drying and would bleed from my lips. I like the satin ones better!

    1. Bianca is a really pretty mauvey pink! :D I found that most of ColourPop's darker shades in the lippie stix formula to bleed so I hated those (same is sort of true for LAX thought not as bad). But ColourPop ultra gloss!!! I HIGHLLLLLYYYY recommend!!! Thanks for stopping by Tania! xoxo, HaeMin
