When Chris Brown’s ex, Karreuche, collaborates with Colourpop you know the shades in the range will be on point. I had seen the range all over Instagram and purchased two out of the three colours on Colourpop’s website. The ultra matte liquid lipsticks cost $6 USD ( roughly $8 AUD) and the matte lip pencil is $5 USD (roughly $7 AUD). Not too shabby right? Exactly. Which in my easily swayed decisions when it comes to anything beauty related, led me to believe that even if I somehow didn’t like this product I wouldn’t have wasted my entire pay. Don’t get me wrong, there is always pros and cons to every beauty product, but this product definitely does the job for the price I paid. And one other side note, make sure your lips are hydrated before applying anything matte or you might feel like your lips have been to the Sahara desert!
Rooch, described as a ‘deepened russet wine’, is such a gorgeous shade. And that’s a lot coming from me, considering I never really step outside nude coloured lipsticks. I also must mention that this is my first time trying a matte liquid lipstick. The shade is also slightly lighter in the packaging than on the lips.
Bless the 90’s gods. Chi, described as a ‘cool toned nude beige’, is everything right with bringing back the old school trend. Oh, and also gives you a cheaper alternative if you want to achieve a Kylie Jenner look, without paying for Whirl or Spice from Mac.
- Extremely pigmented.
- The lip pencils are creamy and hydrating.
- The gold on the packaging has already started to fade and chip away… but I guess that’s what you pay for.
- Because the lip pencils are so creamy they become blunt quite fast and I am constantly sharpening.
- There is a slight colour transfer.
