After months of kicking around the idea of buying a Kylie Jenner lip kit, I was happy discover a more affordable dupe set from ColourPop. I was also intrigued by the hype surrounding the makeup brand, so I decided to make my first purchase from them. First-time purchasers also get $5 off their purchase, which is basically free shipping.
I received my purchase in the mail within one week of ordering, which was a relief since my confirmation email saying it could take up to 14 days for my order to just be processed. I absolutely LOVE their packaging. Each order comes with an adorable hand-written note and holographic text on their products and packages.
I ordered the Ultra Matte Lipstick in Beeper and the BFF Lip Pencil 2 to go with it. I bought this set in hopes of achieving the full lips trend. To do this, I applied the lip pencil around my lips as well as filled them in with it. Then I took the lipstick, which is really more like a gloss with the doe-foot wand applicator, and applied a single coat all over. The resulting color is a mid-tone taupe with purple undertones. I was very pleased with the results!
As far as lasting quality, once this stuff dries, it does not go anywhere. Even the swatch did not want to leave my hand! This lasts all day through eating and drinking. It leaves more of a stain so reapplication is not even necessary. The finish is definitely matte so if you want a more glossy look you will have to add a coat of something else, but for me, matte is exactly what I wanted with this color.
For moisture, I tend to crave a little more but it was not drying either. Similar to other matte products, I would just recommend applying a hydrating balm before and after use.
Overall, I recommend these products in combination and for less than $11 you can’t really beat that! Do you have anything from ColourPop? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
