I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I bought Colourpop lip products
having never used them in the past. There are so many beauty gurus who
have used their products, and I wanted to test them out thoroughly myself.
I picked two colours that I wanted to add to my collection.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip In Lumiere 2
This was the first colour I picked to try from Colourpop’s Ultra Matte
Lip range. One of the reasons I chose it was because it is also
recommended as a dupe for Kylie Cosmetics Dolce K liquid lipstick.
This colour took a few minutes to fully dry and become matte without
transferring or smudging. The image above is a bit lighter than the
actual shade as you can see from my photos below.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip In Teeny Tiny
A helpful tip on spotting fake Colourpop lip gloss would be the lack of
bright lime green on the inside of the packing (not pictured). There are
so many fakes online I encourage you to do your research like I did to
be able to weed out which ones are not the real thing.

The second colour I wanted to try is Colourpop’s Teeny Tiny. This
was a suggested dupe of Kylie Cosmetics Dolce K liquid lipstick.
This colour dried fairly quicker than Lumiere 2, not sure exactly why
that would be. This colour is so bold and deep. I was worried it would
be too dark for me when it arrived but after drying I was happy to pair
it with cool-toned earthy colours.

I wanted to put this swatch through a 24 hour wear test on my hand
to see how much it faded. As you can see above, even after washing
my hands several times and sleeping with it on it it’s staying power is
impressive. The only problem I ran into is when you eat oily foods it
will remove the lip gloss fairly easily. All in all these have become my
favourite long-lasting lip glosses.
