ColourPop Baracuda & Femme Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

Baracuda

ColourPop Baracuda Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was more matte than most of the Ultra Satins are in the beginning, as most of the Ultra Satins have a bit of a sheen that then wears down to a matte finish after a few hours of wear. The texture was smooth, but thin, and spread evenly across the lips. I felt like this was one of the few Ultra Satins that seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips (more like an Ultra Matte would), but it was still more comfortable to wear than the average liquid lipstick. The formula was lightly drying after four hours, while the color lasted closer to eight hours.

Femme

ColourPop Femme Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a deepened, grayish purple with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It was actually glossier and did not dry down as quickly (at least not to that “mostly dry” period) compared to most shades in the Ultra Satin formula that I have tried. I waited a solid half hour for the swatch to “set,” when I normally only wait a few minutes, and it was still not dry. The same was true on the lips, and as a result, it had a lot more transfer for the first few hours. Despite the transfer, it was so pigmented that one could hardly see a difference in color or coverage, only that the shine wore away over time. It was comfortable to wear for six hours, and then it felt a touch drying, but it went on for eight hours all in all. It also seemed to be a more unique color from my experience!

Formula Overview

ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight, bold lipstick with a satin finish” that is “extra intense colour saturation” and “long-wearing,” but the brand is quick to note that it is “not completely kiss proof.” The consistency is very light to lightweight with a thin to mousse-like consistency–they feel a little heavier going on than the Ultra Matte formula, but they don’t feel heavy on. They dry down somewhat, but it isn’t a full, flat dry down like matte liquid lipsticks, and when you press your lips together, there is moderate tackiness there, but I didn’t notice any lifting or separating of color by doing so. Thus far, they have been extremely long-wearing and comfortable to wear for the most part–it’s after ten hours or so that I notice my lips feeling a little dry–but six hours into wear and the colors have looked good post-meals/post-drinking. I think if you like the idea of longer-wearing, mostly matte lip color but find most liquid lipsticks too drying or too flat while not needing an ultra-hydrating formula, you might like these.
