I’m back!!! I haven’t forgotten about all you fabulous ladies, I promise. Unfortunately, I let life (or should I said “busyness”) get in the way of doing something that I love…but not any longer!
Now on to the review and swatches….
Although I haven’t been blogging, over the past year, I have started following many beauty bloggers/vloggers and have discovered several new brands, products, and applications that I’m excited to share with you. One of my new favorite brands is Colourpop, so I decided to write my first blog in 2016 about their Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks.
I’ll admit it, I am not a lip product expert. In fact, for years I never wore lipstick at all. After going through many hideous lip trends as a teenager and in my early 20’s (frosted lips, dark brown lips, glitter gloss…), I decided to stop wearing lipstick…excluding special occasions, of course. Forgetting to reapply after every hour or two meant that I spent more time with an awkward lipstick outline then with perfectly coloured lips (not to mention the annoyance of inner lip guck buildup – ick!). So, decided it wasn’t worth the fuss and became the girl with the meticulous eye makeup but naked lips (ie. an incomplete look but it seemed to work for me).
Then, last year, I started noticing many youtube videos pop up (pun intended!) about ColourPop’s new Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks. The website and reviews all stated that the products were easy to apply, non-transferable (ie. kiss proof), and lasted all day – so, I had to try it out!
