I got a few Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips a few weeks ago and I was originally planning to do a haul on them but when I tried them out, it feels like the formulation varies per shade so I decided to just do a detailed review on each of them! 🙂 Let’s talk about Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Lax first, shall we?
So let’s talk about the formulation, shall we? It has the right consistency, not too thin nor too thick but it dries out so fast that you need to blend it right away upon applying it onto your lips.
It is VERY pigmented and you only need a bit of product to work with, be careful not to apply too much because it has a tendency to crack and flake off when you layer it. Take it from me, you can’t layer this product up, you’ll end up with a flaky mess if you ever try to. I know I did!
It comes with a doe-foot applicator that picks up just the right amount of product. It’s pretty basic, nothing special, but it works!

As you can see it has a tendency to be patchy so be sure to blend it out right away, it has a tendency to bleed and to stain your teeth too if you’re not so careful so using a lip liner and checking if anything got into your teeth before heading out the door is the key!
If you’re new in using dark liquid lipstick like me, be sure to have a lip liner in hand. It takes skills to even out the outline of your lips with the liquid lipstick alone. Haha!
