Hello, it’s good to be back blogging. Apologies I’ve been MIA for a while, had a few things going on in my life so it’s been a hectic few months.
Anyway, let’s get straight into this, I got the whole collection (amendment - I thought I had the whole collection!) of the Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lipsticks when they came out and wanted to do a little swatch fest for you. I’ve changed it up a bit and done full face pictures, let me know if you prefer these or just the close ups of the lips for lip swatches?
Colourpop came out with the 4 darker colours first then later on brought out 4 lighter shades, which I’m glad they did as they are by far my favourites, so I’m going to start with these :)
First up is J. I. C. (Just In Case), this is a pretty light pink metallic colour. This is very light so if you like the really pale nudes then you will love this one, I feel it’s a smidgen too light for me though.
Next is Lights Out, a lovely pale gold Metallic colour, this makes me feel summery when I put it on. I think this would look beautiful with a tan.
Next up is Flitter. This is my absolute favourite, as it’s almost a two-tone colour. On the swatch on my arm it looks peachy but on the lips it picks up pink and also gold depending how the light hits it. Love this colour so much.
Next is Salt, another one I really like, it’s another pale pink, but this is more of a muted pink and more taupe, so a little darker than J. I. C. which is great as I can wear this one.
Now onto the first four darker colours that Colourpop brought out. First is Man Eater. This is my favourite out of the darker colours (probably because it is the lightest lol) It’s a light golden bronze kind of colour.
Next is Zebra, this is a purpley bronze, this is definitely too dark for me at the moment, although I think it’s a beautiful colour, it just doesn’t suit me :(
Next is 3-Way. This is a nice reddy plum colour, which I didn’t like on me straight away but I have to say it’s grown on me!
Lastly is Kween. A red gold, again I wasn’t sure about this one on me but it’s growing, need to play with it a bit and hopefully find a look that it goes with! This would look so nice on darker skin tones though.
Here are swatches of them all together so you can compare.
Overall I love these Metallic Lipstick from Colourpop. They go on like the Ultra Satin's, so it’s a really nice smooth application and they last all day. These are metallic and not glittery lip colours which is great, I hate glittery lip products especially when they start to wear off and the colour disappears, and all that’s left on your lips is just the glitter, not a good look, at least not on me!
But glad to say you don’t get that with these, and the colour stays true all day long. The colours are all unique and so pretty you have to try these. The lighter colours make you feel like you have a tan even though you don’t, it’s hard to explain but they just glow from your lips they are beautiful. I hope colourpop come out with a few more colours :)
I've just realised while adding the links to these that there's 3 more colours that I don't have! Oh man, I'm out of practice lol The other 3 colours are Mugshot (a bright rusty red), DM (a rich copper) & PYT (a soft dirty gold - wishing I had this one now!). I've linked these for you too so you can check them out.
I’d love to see you in any of these if you have them so send me your pics on Twitter and tag me @makeupandbeauti (especially the ones I don't have!)
Much love and see you in my next post :)
