Company’s Description

This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!

  • Vice: Pale warm nude
  • Midi: Soft neutral beige
  • Trap: Dusty greyed out beige
  • Limbo: Deep chocolate brown

These come with doe-footed applicators that are pretty good at letting you get a precise line, but for some of the shades, I found I couldn’t get a crisp border, so you might need to utilize a lip brush.

True to ColourPop’s claims, all of the Ultra Matte Lips have pigment-rich color and most of these apply in an opaque layer. The few shades that I had more trouble getting to look evenly opaque on the lips were: LAX, Lychee, Zipper, and Avenue. The formula is thin and dries down to a completely slick, matte finish. I find that these don’t have any moisture in them, so they usually wrinkle the lips a little, and can also emphasize your lip lines. They are absolutely kiss- and transfer-proof, and last about 4-5 hours before showing signs of fading and flaking. And the fading is gradual, so you can usually go at least 6 hours before you have to even consider touching up.

You need a makeup remover to get these off, and you’ll need to scrub if you don’t use an oil-based remover. The brighter and deeper shades (and even some of the shades that look more natural/nude) leave behind very strong stains on the lips, sometimes lasting for a full day and through the night.

When it comes to application, I find these a little tricky to use. The shades really can’t be layered because as soon as they start to dry, applying a liquid on top smears the layer below, creating a very uneven effect. So you need to make sure to apply enough product on the lower and upper lip to cover, but not apply so much that the product doesn’t dry evenly. Also, you can’t really rub your lips together when applying these, which will cause an uneven finish. If you wear these alone, it’s likely they’ll make your lips look a little dry (unless you naturally have moisturized lips). But putting a gloss or balm on top is also tricky, because doing so can cause the product underneath to start flaking or smear. I’ve tried several clear balms and glosses on top, with mixed results–some of them go on smoothly on top, and some of them damage the matte color below.

Unlike most liquid lipstick I’ve tried, the Ultra Matte Lips don’t have any scent or taste to them. Plus, they’re a bargain price at $6.00 each. That said, I do wish these were a little less drying and more straight-forward to use.

By the way, Sundae (which happens to be my favorite shade) seems to have a slightly thinner formula than the rest of the 24 shades.

Final Grade

Note: ColourPop suggests that you apply the Ultra Matte Lips over a lip liner, but the colors below are applied over bare, exfoliated lips.
