Last week I was on the hunt for some super matte lip colours, so I thought it was finally time to try ColourPop Cosmetics! A few ladies I follow rave about their products and their ultra matte lip gloss always looks so pretty. Their Instagram page has loads of swatches from followers, so you can get an idea of all their colors and pick the perfect one.
I knew I wanted a mauvey purple as well as a red shade, but still with a hint of mauve as well. I’m going crazy over mauve colours right now! Anyone else? So I settled with the Ultra Matte Lip gloss in Trap and Tulle.
These are 100% the most matte lip sticks/lip glosses I have ever used. I love the way both of these look on me. I think ColourPop’s strong suit is creating colours for everyone, that look great on everyone. There are a million colours to choose from that suit every kind of day, every mood, and every outfit. One thing I really like is that they swatch their colours on different skin tones as seen here:

How do more companies not do this?! The colours can look so drastically different depending on the skin tone. Definitely an A+ in presentation. Plus their packaging is super cute too.
I have to say that I am absolutely in love with Trap and Tulle. I love the way they look on me. The only negative is that I found them to be a bit on the messy side. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT tilt the lipgloss tube or you’ll have liquid Tulle EVERYWHERE. At least I think that’s what happened. Definitely my mistake. But do know that these are quite runny and hard to get off unless you use a makeup remover. So do be careful when applying them.
Currently having a little anxiety thinking about Trap ever selling out, and irrationally considering buying like three more just in case (it really is the prettiest colour). Probably my favorite colour of the two. Next I have my eyes set on Lumiere 2, and possibly trying their Lippie Pencil, which is a more creamy version of the matte.
What colours are your favorite?
