This week’s favorite is basically my summer lip color so it’s been a favorite much longer than a week. It’s Colour Pop’s Ultra Satin Lip in the shade Echo Park.
Colour Pop never ceases to disappoint with amazing quality products at the most affordable prices.
The ultra satin lips are a range of what is best described as a hybrid between a liquid lipstick and a cream lipstick. They come in a tube similar to a liquid lipstick or a lip gloss. The formula is very creamy and dries down almost to a matte.
Side note: for those not as familiar, liquid lipsticks are exactly what they sound like – a liquid version of a lipstick. For the most part they dry completely matte and last several hours. Most big name cosmetic companies have come out with their own version of a liquid lipstick in the last year or two.
Why I love it?
|1| I struggle with how drying liquid lipsticks are (and I have tried a ton of formulas) but love the durability. The Ultra Satin Lip is like a step down from the durability of a liquid lip, but a step up from the durability of a regular lipstick. It does not feel drying on my lips and has great lasting power.
|2| The Echo Park shade is the perfect nude/pink for my skin tone. More often than not, nude lipsticks are too light for me resulting in the – I’m sick and haven’t had a drink of water in 24 hours look. This shade has the right amount of pink to counteract the nude.
|3| Overall this is a nice, easy shade. The color isn’t too intense that I need a mirror and lip liner to apply. I can wear it to the office or out with friends.
|4| Each tube costs $6 which is $14 less than Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lips.
|5|The Ultra Satin Lips do not contain parabens (which is nice considering most people tend to eat most of their lipstick) and the brand as a whole does not test on animals!
I have only purchased this particular shade from the Ultra Satin Lip line so I can’t speak to any other colors. But if my previous Colour Pop purchases are any indication, the formula will be consistent across all shade.
And if you haven’t tried any Colour Pop products, you should really reconsider. They have amazing products at incredible prices. Happy Shopping!
