It’s been a long time since I got myself some Colourpop items. I had previously own Ultramatte shades such as Tulle, Bumble and Clueless but I gave them away with my friends and cousins.
I love the Colourpop’s marketing strategy of doing bundles. You think you are saving money, but it only makes you buy more from them haha!
Anyway, this Up and Away Bundle was released Fall of last year and I’ve been eyeing this for a while. Good thing, an Instagram online shop had a sale and without a doubt I got myself this set.
According to the website:
Ultra Matte Lip This thin, lightweight formula smoothly glides on the lips leaving SUPER intense pigment with a bold, ultra-matte look. It is very long-wearing and 100% kiss-proof AKA no transferring!
Ultra Satin Lip A creamy, bold lipstick with a satin finish. This formula has the same high percentage of pigments as an Ultra Matte Lip but contains emollient ingredients for added moisture, keeping lips looking fresh and feeling super comfortable.
Though this lipstick is super long-wearing, it is not completely kiss-proof and does transfer.
The bundle is composed of three products. Two ultramattes and 1 ultrasatin:
Love Bug: Ultra Matte Lip; rich mahogany
Probably my favorite shade. It is a dark mahogany and I love the brown undertone. It is a dark lippie that is totally wearable in the morning. I also get a lot of compliments whenever I wear this.
One thing, it could be so drying like the usual ultramattes.
Mama: Ultra Matte Lip; burnt orange
Very loud color. I know Kathleen Lights love this, but it is so bright and loud for me to wear. Maybe, I can use it for night outs. Also, I think it looks better with fair skin tones.
Calypso: Ultra Satin Lip; mid-tone pink
It is my first time to own an ultrasatin from Colourpop and I am loving the formula. It reminds me of Ofra! Although, it transfers a bit. The shade Calypso is the perfect neutral pink to pair with smokey looks.
Overall, I am happy with this purchase. However, I am not sure if I will get the other sets for now. I have a lot of liquid lipsticks in my stash that I haven’t used yet. Anyway, I think you get the value of your money by purchasing bundles like this from Colourpop.
