I don't know about you, but when I get some extra money, I like to treat myself and I knew just what I wanted to buy. Colourpop lipsticks. After browsing on Instagram, I got a feel for the lipstick colors that would be flattering on my skin tone.

The colors I chose are right up my alley. Bold and bright! Problem is, I hate matte lipstick and I don't know why I thought Colour Pop would be any different.
They may look glossy here, but they dry out and I'm left with lips that look like this.
Eww, no! Somebody had me my lip gloss STAT!
Okay, that's much better. Here's what they look like when I applied lip balm first, then Colourpop Ultra Matte and Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips.
First let me throw out this little disclaimer. I knew that I was purchasing matte lip colors but I thought that the Ultra Satin Lip would be more moisturizing. Honesty, I couldn't tell the difference between the two. When I wore lip gloss on top the Colourpop lip color, it bled and was all over my teeth.
The colors are absolutely gorgeous, but are extremely drying. You MUST put on lip balm first. If you love matte lipstick, I think you will like Colourpop.
I'm going to wear these on occasion, but I won't be buying them again. Glossy lips are my jam, so when they come out with a high gloss lipstick, I'm all in!
Have you tried Colourpop cosmetics? Are you a fan of matte lips?
