Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in 'Donut' - Review & Swatch


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!


$6.00 | Colourpop


When the Colourpop liquid lipsticks mania began all I wanted to do was to get my hands on them. I love a matte lip and Colourpop offers that for only 6 bucks with so many gorgeous colours to choose from. Unfortunately, they are not available in Germany and the only way was to place an online order and bear international shipping and custom charges. But before placing such a massive order I wanted to at least try the formula. I managed to grab Donut on an ebay-like marketplace and after trying it thanked my stars that I hadn't ordered in bulk.

Donut is a beautiful, bright and matte pinkish coral. Very bold and very summery! What ticked me off was the formula! First, I feel that with Colourpop Ultra Mattes you have to work very quickly otherwise during application the lipstick starts caking up. Also, without a lip balm underneath Donut totally killed my lips and looked wrinkled up. I was so uncomfortable all throughout the day. With a lip balm it applied better, smoother and did not look so cakey. It definitely emphasizes lip imperfections, so wear if you are blessed with smooth lips or exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate. And don't expect any kind of moisture, it does feel very drying.

The good thing is it lasts very long, 7-8 hours and is completely matte. It does not transfer at all. I wish the formula was a li'l bit more bearable but I am glad at least you are not paying a lot and with proper prepping it can work.
