Hey everyone! I hope everyone’s had a relaxing weekend. Colourpop is back at it again with the Ultra Satin lipsticks. These are liquid lipsticks that don’t dry down to a matte finish, but rather set to a comfortable satin finish.
I picked up five different shades in the launch to test a good range of the shades: The Rabbit, Frick N Frack, Too Lips, Marshmallow, and Petit Four.
The Ultra Satin formula reminds me a lot of the Ofra Cosmetics liquid lipsticks. They are a thick, mousse-y consistency. But unlike the Ofra formula, which is stiff like icing, the Ultra Satin formula is a lot creamier. It spreads easily when applied and is very opaque.
It takes a couple minutes for the lipstick to set up. After that, it’s a little tacky, but it doesn’t feel slippery like a traditional lipstick would. It does transfer in a kiss test and wears away while eating similar to a traditional lipstick, so these don’t have the lasting power that other liquid lipsticks have. The Ultra Satin lipsticks can be layered for touch ups, which I am definitely a fan of because that’s the only thing I dislike about most matte liquid lipsticks.
The Rabbit is definitely my favorite! It’s a beautiful hot pink color with blue reflects. The formula is a little thinner than the rest, but I found it to apply evenly, smoothly, and it sets up quickly.
Frick N Frack is a rosy terracotta color that I think would be perfect for fall! This formula is thicker than that of The Rabbit, and the standard consistency for the other shades.
Toolips is such a beautiful color! This deepened plum brown applies so smoothly and doesn’t magnify the appearance of lip lines.
Marshmallow is not a color I would usually wear, but this lavender grey is surprisingly wearable! It’s perfect for spring and applies very smoothly.
Petit Four is described as a deep charcoal grey, but it looks more like a slate blue when on my lips. This formula is a lot drier and stiffer than the rest. I had a few issues with pigmentation but they were mostly resolved with a second layer.
All in all, I love these Ultra Satin lipsticks! I actually ordered one of the nude shades, Magic Wand, a few hours ago so I can try it out too. Nothing can ever replace my matte liquid lipsticks, but these are a great alternative if my lips are super dry or if I’m just going out for a couple hours.
