ColourPop Review on Flitter and My Jam!

colourpop-lippies

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I’m still recovering from my long and fun-filled weekend!  I attended a wedding so it’s always fun to get glam for an event.  You can check it out on my Instagram.   Did you do anything fun for Labor Day weekend?

A few weeks back I purchased two new items that ColourPop released so if you’re curious about what I thought, keep on reading!

ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip in Flitter 

Described as, super intense color with high impact metallic pearls and a non-drying formula that is extremely long-wearing.  The shade Flitter has a warm pinky undertone with flash of gold on top in a Metallic finish.

Pros 

Cost effective at $6

Beautiful and unique shade

Smooth application

Good lasting power

Cons 

Tube looks about half empty

Not very hydrating

Accentuates dry lips

Overall:  As soon as I saw swatches of this shade on several beauty blogging sites, I knew I had to have it.  The color itself is ah-mazing! It’s a nice pink shade that has gold swirled in it and pictures don’t do this shade justice. It glides on smoothly and lasts a decent time without heavy drinking or eating.  I sometimes pair this with my Lancome Juicy Shaker to get a more hydrated feel.  It does accentuate any lip imperfections so it’s a good idea to prep them beforehand. One of the biggest cons is that this tube looks half empty. As soon as I took the applicator out, I could see through the tube.  I know it’s priced at $6, but all the other glosses are filled so I’m not sure what happened here. Other bloggers have complained about this issue too. I love the color so I would repurchase this again-I just hope they fix the half-empty issue.

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in My Jam

Described as, “a full coverage gloss with a smooth pearl metal finish that does not contain any glitter.” (Note: This is the description for the Ultra Metallic finish).  The shade My Jam is depicted as a warm golden nude shimmering with silver and gold in a Metallic finish.

Pros 

Cost effective at $6

Hydrating

High shine without the glitter

Tube was filled with product

Cons 

Not long lasting

Shade on website doesn’t match the actual color

Slightly sticky

Sheer

Overall: I like this color but in all honestly, it was very different from the picture on the ColourPop website.  I was expecting a warm golden, sort of peach nude but when I pulled the tube out, the shade was more copper/brown like.  It’s still a nice shade that has a high shine and is great for layering but I was kind of disappointed with this one.  Though hydrating,there is little bit of tackiness and the color is pretty sheer so the lasting power isn’t the best.  I would not repurchase this shade again.

    • It is a bit different than a normal shade. However, I think these can be modified to make them a bit more wearable. For example, Flitter is a gorgeous shade but when combined with a lip oil, it tones some of the metallic aspect but still looks pretty.

    • Yes. Flitter has sort of like a duo chrome thing going on. It’s pink but has a gold glow to it. My Jam has lots of silver non-glittery specks running through it and it definitely shows up.
