The ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips are one of my favorite liquid lipsticks. I love them so much that I have almost all the colors in the Ultra Satin Lip line. The price and quality of the lipstick is hard to beat! While I do like the staying power of a matte liquid lipstick, they tend to dry out my lips at some point, so for that reason alone, I don't usually wear them on a daily basis. What I love about the Ultra Satin Lips is that the creamy formula makes it extremely comfortable to wear. They aren't as drying as a matte formula, so I can wear these daily. The Ultra Satin Lips also offer the same color intensity and opacity as a matte liquid lipstick, while also being easy to apply. With these lipsticks I don't usually have to worry about patchiness, and reapplying is a breeze.

Because these are not matte, they aren't kiss proof, but regardless they still have amazing staying power. I've worn one of these from 5am until 11pm, and the color still looked pretty good at the end of the day. If they do fade, they fade evenly and gracefully. The darker colors, however, can get a little bit messy if you wear them and eat a greasy meal, but with all the other colors that wasn't too much of an issue.

TL;DR, if you're looking for a nondrying, comfortable, long lasting (not necessarily kiss proof) liquid lipstick with great color payoff (and a great price), you should definitely give the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips a try! ...read more

I absolutely love this line! NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams goes on opaque and evenly with the exceptions of Copenhagen and Transylvania. Copenhagen is opaque but it can apply streaky so you need to be careful with this! Transylvania is DEFINITELY streaky in my case. I also have the Matte Lip Creams in the shades; Abu Dubai, Istanbul, London, Milan, Stockholm, Zurich, San Paulo, Monte Carlo, Athens, Cannes, and San Paulo. I love each and every one of them although I certainly have my favorites and ones on the back burner.

I usually stick to a nvde-lip everyday so I reach for Abu Dubai, Stockholm, or London. I also line my lips with NYX Lipliner in either Natural or Peekaboo Neutral. The results: a muted rose, nvde lippy!

The lip product has a fragrance that a lot of people love - vanilla/cake batter; but this doesn't last for long and usually goes away in 1 to 2 minutes. These aren't transfer or smudge proof, so do be careful! The longwear for this without eating/light drinking is about 6 hours, with a nice stain (for the more opaque ones); but there is a possibility that you may need to reapply to the corners of the mouth and the inner part (this was the case for me when I wore Monte Carlo).

There are reviews below that say you can build this product up to the level of opaqueness you want to achieve, but I don't recommend doing that. In my experience with this lip product I found that attempting to build up the color would only swipe away the previous product already on my lips. If I wait for the first layer to dry and then applying a second coat, it would sit on top of the first coat. I also found that trying to layer the product resulted in an unflattering look - dry lips with product.

I don't think the formula is consistent across the board, I found that some of the colors in the line would sink into my fine lines (the more opaque ones, but not all of them).

Despite everything, I 100% recommend this product to anyone who asks. ...read more

This is, by far, my favorite lip gloss. The texture is smooth, and creamy, without being sticky, and it wears well. It is also quite moisturizing, and the glosses range from sheer, to quite pigmented, so there is something for everyone. I compare it to the texture of the MAC lipglass lip glosses. The price is between $6-$8, but they frequently go on sale for buy one get one half off at your local drugstore. The packaging has just changed from rectangular to round tubes, and you now get just slightly less product, but the price is still good, and the product lasts a long time. The packaging is sturdy, but also sophisticated, and won't leak in your bag or pocket. There is a large range of shades to choose from, you won't be disappointed. ...read more

This is just a tube full of YES! I have Milani's Brilliant Shine Gloss in Sweet Grapefruit that has a subtly sweet scent that's not overpowering. Admittedly, I hated this when I first got it because it wasn't really pigmented and was sticky so it just sat. Finally, one day I randomly decided to pop it on for a light wash of color since I don't wear lipstick very often but want a polished look. It gave me the perfect light flush of color to my natural lips, created a beautiful glossy shine and the tackiness helped it to last for hours without it drying my lips or being annoyingly sticky. Since then it is always with me. It will last for hours and even a bit if I'm drinking something. ...read more

I recently bought this at a Walmart and got it for $2 less than retail price. I LOVE IT. This is a game changer and unfortunately I like this more than the Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks. This is worth so much more than that one lipstick for $21. It has the same applicator as well. The thing is this color jolt has half the product as well as price that the Too Faced one would, but who needs that much product? I really hope they expand the range of shades.. maybe more nudes. With one swipe it is so pigmented and rich in color. It lasts me all day as well and has a thick consistency.


Too Faced: $21, pigmented but drying on the lips. Same applicator as color jolt. More product.

Maybelline Color Jolt: $9.99, pigmented, moisturizing on the lips. Less product.

Do your pick! ...read more

I am in no way a "lip gloss" person, but these Intense Butter Glosses just blow me away. I have the shade Chocolate Crepe and it is a *beautiful* rosy-brown nude. This stuff is incredibly pigmented; probably as pigmented as a liquid lipstick. They're really easy to apply and give a beautiful glossy finish. They also smell great (like vanilla cupcakes), and give your lips some hydration, too. I'll definitely be trying out more of the shades, and I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a super-pigmented gloss. ...read more
