Colourpop Out & About Swatches

Colourpop came out with limited edition Ultra Lippie Sets for $15! There is three liquid lipsticks in there and normally for three liquid lipsticks it would be $18, but they are selling it for $15. I am a huge fan of Colourpop lipsticks because they have so many different colors and the Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks are so long lasting. There were three different sets; Can You Knot was full of darker shades perfect for fall, Up & Away was more reds and pinks and the last set Out & About was more purple and pink. I had a difficult time choosing the set that I wanted but I went with Out & About, because I felt like the colors were different than the ones I already owned. It came with two ultra-matte and one ultra-stain (I will be doing reviews on them!)

The packing was absolutely gorgeous, they came in a box with gold foil and their logo on it. Each of the lipsticks were individually packed in their own boxes (the types you see when you do order the lipsticks separately). The shades were Viper, Baracuda and Times Square.

From top to bottom: Times Square, Viper, Baracuda
  1. Times Square (Ultra Matte) is a muted pink beige shade. It has warm undertones and it looks a bit brighter in the tube than when actually applied. The formula was the usual colourpop formula, it dried mostly matte and there was pretty much little to no transfer of color. Like all the Ultra Matte, it is drying and does not feel too comfortable on the lips after a long time, although I did find that it was a bit sticky after I applied it which usually does not happen for the Ultra Mattes.
  2. Viper (Ultra Matte) is described as a dusty rose color and it looks more pink-red in the tube when I saw the images online but it looks more purple-pink in person.
  3. Baracuda (Ultra Stain) is described as a warm deepened rose color and it is has more red tones in it compared to Viper. Since it is an Ultra-Stain it was more comfortable to wear and felt way less drying, but there was color transfer and the color did not last as long compared to Ultra Mattes.

Colourpop color ranges always amaze me and they are also so affordable that I cannot help buying more of their lip products. I am planning to do a more in depth review of their lip products so that you guys can see the full comparison between the Ultra Matte and Ultra Stain collection.
