Matte lips have been a makeup obsession of mine for a while now. What’s better than a bomb matte lipstick?? A bomb matte lipstick that’s budget-friendly! Recently I’ve fallen in love with the ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks. These liquid lippies come in a range of colors, but I’m absolutely smitten with the color “Limbo,” a deep brown that’s perfect for fall.
Here are the details on ColourPop Cosmetics Ultra Matte Lipsticks $6:
Step 1- Make sure your lips are bare and dry!
Step 2- Apply complimentary lip pencil for a precise and perfected application.
Step 3- Apply Ultra Matte Lip with the applicator or your favorite lip brush. **For smoothest finish always exfoliate your lips first!
I can’t say enough about this product. First, the formula. Liquid lipsticks come in lots of different formulas: creams, mousses, and of course, liquids. The Ultra Matte Liquid Lip is true to its name–it has a very liquid, watery formula that glides easily across the lips. It can take a while to get the hang of application, because the product dries fairly quickly. You have to be quick and efficient with your application, but the good thing is that once it’s on, it’s not going ANYWHERE! With the exception of some patchiness after eating, the ultra matte lippie stays on pretty well. While I have tried liquid lipsticks with better staying power, you can’t beat hours of wear for the crazy price of only $6. I’ll take it!
The best thing about “Limbo” is the color. The chocolate brown hue is vampy, unique, and gorgeous on women of color. This is the perfect polished nude for my darker brown girls, and a dark and sexy pop of color for my lighter toned women. Either way, it works on everyone and will definitely have women stopping you in the street to ask, “Where did you get that lippie?!”
