ColourPop came out with some metals, yay!!! I have reviewed this brand before and have always loved their products since I was introduced to them by Kathleen Lights. If you want to see a few other reviews on their products I have done, check out here and here.
They came out with four ‘metallic’ lip colours about three weeks ago and I purchased three of the four in Kween, 3 Way, and Man Eater. They’ve been doing a Kylie Jenner type thing and only releasing them in batches, which I absolutely hate. One day I got lucky and had been checking my email when they just did their third release, so I was able to grab them before they sold out! Let’s get to it.
On My Lips
These do appear to dry down completely matte, and the formula seems to be extremely similar (if not the exact same formula) to their other liquid lipsticks. These have a beautiful sheen to them which is achieved mostly with glitter. If you swatch these, be ready to have glitter all over your hands. However they don’t appear glittery on the lips at all. This formula is a bit lighter than their other products and you definitely have to have two or three coats to get that really deep pigmented look. The wear is very comfortable on these, but they do not last all day long like their ultra mattes. Something to consider if you don’t like reapplying lipstick.
This one is the true red of the three, which makes it one of the most wearable. I could definitely see this as a nice topper to a red lipstick for a costume party or Christmas party. Fall where you at?
This one is another red but with more of a plum sheen to it, and definitely my favorite of the three. It’s really really beautiful on the lips and completely wearable. Again, perfect for fall.
This one I didn’t like too much and it’s the least wearable of the three I bought. It’s more of a light brown/gold colour and I knew that it probably wouldn’t look too great on me, but I still wanted to buy it and try something unique. I could image this working really well for costume makeup though.
These metallics are super fun and great to add to your collection. For me, they sort of stop there. I don’t think the colours are super wearable and they definitely draw attention. For the girl that is nodding her head yes to all these things, then these are totally for you! I prefer a more monochromatic look with subtle pinks and nudes. I still love the way these swatch and I can’t stop staring at them. The Formula is ColourPop quality and super easy to worth with, which I love. If I am sounding a little on the fence, that’s because I am. I just can’t decide! I’ll definitely be wearing them more this week to see if they grow on me.
Would I Purchase Again?
As of now, I don’t think I would purchase these again. Maybe if they came out with some that were a little more wearable and had a little less glitter/sheen, I would consider purchasing. I also don’t like how they are releasing them in batches.

P.S. ColourPop now ships internationally for all my readers who’ve been waiting for this!
