Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip 'Tulle' & 'Trap'.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in 'Trap' and 'Tulle'

If you follow me on Instagram (lisamichellexx) you'll of seen a month or so back I placed an order with Colourpop cosmetics. I got a few eyeshadows, a highlighter, a few lippie stix and some of their ultra matte lips. I've trialled out all of the products now and I'll be posting reviews on all, but today I wanted to mention these two Ultra Matte Lips in 'Trap' - the lighter, milkier shade and 'Tulle' - the deeper, raspberry. I've been pairing these up together, applying Tulle first all over, then placing Trap on the inside to create a bit of a highlight and contour to the lips. I love how pigmented the Ultra Matte Lips are, Colourpops shade range is totally on trend, the whole branding I adore, although I don't love the cost of shipping to Australia - SOB. As much as I love this combination, I do have to admit that the lighter shades I purchased do get a little dry on the lips and if you apply too much you do get patchiness. I combat this by applying a tiny bit of lipbalm on the top, which I know defeats the purpose of buying a matte product, but it helps extend the wear of them and make them a bit more comfortable on the lips. I'm sure if you applied lip balm first then applied these, it would have the same effect and still dry to a matte, or semi matte finish. I should mention, I don't find this an issue with the darker, or more vibrant shades, I don't have to prep my lips in any way - they stay put and feel completely comfortable to wear. Here's the combination below.
