ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip Swatches

Hi beauties!

As per your request, today I’m swatching all of the brand NEW ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lips! Being that the brand already has Lippie Stix (lipsticks), Ultra Matte Lips (liquid lipsticks), and Ultra Satin Lips, glosses were the natural next step for Colourpop.

3
Currently the lip gloss line features 21 shades and 4 finishes:

  • Sheer: Transparent gloss with a hint of color. Great as an everyday, natural lip color, or as a lipstick topper.
  • Sheer-Metallic: Transparent gloss with multi-dimensional glitter. Great for those who want to dip their toes into the world of metallic lips but don’t want something too dramatic.
  • Creme: Medium coverage gloss with a creamy finish.
  • Ultra-Metallic: Full coverage gloss with a smooth pearl metal finish. Great for the bold and beautiful! These was definitely the most pigmented finish of the whole line.

Each lip gloss is $6 and the packaging is the same as ColourPop’s Ultra Satin Lips and Ultra Matte Lips- it just says ‘Ultra Glossy Lip’ instead :)

HOW TO AVOID CAKEY MAKEUP!

Hi beauties!

Here’s a makeup tutorial/tips on how to avoid cakey foundation or cake face makeup. Enjoy!

♡ CAKE FACE TIPS ♡
1. Prep your skin with a primer according to your skin type
2. Let your base sink into your skin for a few minutes before applying foundation
3. Use a brush for a lighter coverage foundation and a sponge for heavier coverage foundation
4. Use a smoothing primer on areas your makeup creases (fine lines, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles
5. Use a loose powder underneath your eyes (less coverage, less cakey),  and use a pressed powder for your entire face
6. Let your liquid products sink into your skin for a few minutes before applying powder
7. Dab moisturizer on top of cakey areas throughout the day
8. Spray your beauty sponge with MAC Fix+ and dab onto cakey areas OR mist onto your entire face after makeup application
9. Shake your foundation bottle before using (especially with serum- or water-based foundations)
10. Mix a facial oil or serum with heavier coverage foundations to make it less cakey
11. Spot conceal with your foundation on good skin days – don’t over apply foundation where you don’t need it!
