COLOURPOP ULTRA MATTE LIP: LIMBO


I, like thousands of other people was left disappointed when the Kylie Lip Kit sold out in what felt like 0.0000001 seconds. I had been waiting for her to drop the gorgeous rich brown shade after seeing her where it to NYFW. After searching and searching online for a similar shade, I saw YouTube Queen Desi Perkins mention this dupe on snapchat.
It's the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Limbo. Yes, it's not an exact dupe, many have made this comparison and there are mixed opinions but I'm more than happy about this match.

I managed to get my hands on ColourPop in the UK through LillyJam Shop on Depop. All of the products she sells are the real thing and unused. So what are my first impressions...


It has a small-ish sized doe foot applicator that is a little stiff which gives more control. The formula initially applies quite wet but it only takes a couple of minutes to dry through.

The formula is surprisingly long lasting and only needs topping up once throughout the day. Compared to products at a similar price point, I'm really impressed with the pigmentation and longevity. It is tiny bit drying on the lips but nothing too uncomfortable.

The swatch below is just after first application and I find it dries a bit darker. How do you feel about the new trend?

If you managed to get your hands on the real thing, let me know how you think it compares. I'm super excited to create a look with this for you all and I'm excited to buy more and more liquid lipsticks.
