Metallic Birthday Red Lips : Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lip Mugshot review

19 October 2016

A month ago, a kid with an online journal has just turned 19. While she was busy doing her makeup for her birthday-turned-surprise dinner, the final touch to complete her makeup look was selecting the perfect lipstick shade. Therefore, she has decided to play with something she has never ventured into before - Metallic Liquid Lipsticks. That night, she wore a brand she had been eager to try for years. That night, she wore an Ultra Metallic Lip from Colourpop Cosmetics in the shade - Mugshot.

In case you don't already know, Colourpop is a fairly affordable brand from the United States with their products ranging from 5$ to 8$ depending on the category. I've been hearing so much about them throughout the years from all the makeup gurus from the States but only got to try the brand out recently. Back then Colourpop didn't offer international shipping so it's been pretty difficult to get hold of their products. For me, I was pretty lucky to get my Colourpop products stocked during my mom's recent trip to the United States.

Let's first talk about its colour and consistency. Mugshot is one of Colourpop's latest ultra metallic shades. It is more of a rustic-red colour with a very slight metallic sheen to it. The consistency felt pretty chunky when I pulled the applicator wand out but it applied smoothly across my lips. Under the camera's flash you could also spot a wash of pink across it.

 Here's how it's doe foot applicator wand looks like up close. The coverage it gave was pretty even. I also liked how I didn't have to do a double dip to get enough product for my lips. However in my opinion the applicator sorta pulled a little too much product to my liking. So what I do is, before pulling the wand out fully, I'll wipe off some excess product on the stopper.


 The metallic sheen picked up really well on flash. Personally I do love the colour just not that big of a fan on it's formula.

Here's a shot of how my lips looked like after dinner. I had 0 touch ups so from this we can conclude that this lippie is not long wearing at all.

Here's the look I did for my bday dinner :3 This photo was taken without flash. From what I've noticed, because this is a metallic lipstick, so depending on the presence of flash + it's intensity, the colour outcome does vary quite a bit. 

After my go with this metallic lipstick, I've came to conclude that metallic liquid lipsticks are really not my cup of tea. From the close up lip swatches, you can see how the fine lines on my lips are more noticeable, making it look even more dry than it already is. This liquid lip is barely transfer-proof as almost everything was gone just after one meal. It was kiss proof on my hand and tissue but it got everywhere when I was drinking water or eating. 

 I'd say if you simply just want a metallic liquid lipstick in your collection or if you think it'll look good on you, then go ahead, but for my dry lips babies, I wouldn't recommend it. From the metallic lip series in my Colourpop haul, I also got myself 3-Way. I have yet to try it out, so hopefully it'll be better than this! > < 

If you're wondering where I got my Colourpop from, I got them from their main website when my mom was in the States and had them shipped to the hotel she was staying at. Colourpop aside, I've also got my hands on a few Burt's Bees lipstick, will be doing a review on all of them soon! 

Stay tuned! 
xoxo
