Kaepop : Colourpop x Karrueche

By Morgan Haynes

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:

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. ┬áThe shade is also slightly lighter in the packaging than on the lips.

Chi:

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.

Pros:

  • Cost.
  • Extremely pigmented.
  • The lip pencils are creamy and hydrating.

Cons:

  • 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.
