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.
Cost effective at $6
Beautiful and unique shade
Good lasting power
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.
Cost effective at $6
High shine without the glitter
Tube was filled with product
Not long lasting
Shade on website doesn’t match the actual color
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.
