Did I mention that I’ve been obsessed with brown lips lately? Because, yeah. It’s starting to get serious. At first, I thought brown lippies would just fade into my skintone making me look dead. Or like a chainsmoker. But they’re actually very flattering! Since the 90s wave has made a comeback brown lips are everywhere and they’re super wearable and better than ever.
One of my new favorites is ColourPop’s Limbo Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick. It’s a warm chocolate brown with a slight red undertone and ultra matte finish that’s a must have if you love matte brown lips. I’ve been rocking it everyday for a little over a week now because it’s such a flattering spin on the classic 90s trend. The hint of red makes Limbo wearable and flattering on many skin tones from light to deep.
And the formula is really good for a $6 liquid lipstick! Limbo applies smoothly and evenly with a thin lightweight texture and intense pigmentation. It sets rather quickly but I like that. Limbo applies so well that I don’t need the extra dry down for mistakes or patches. Plus, the fast dry down helps make this baby pretty much indestructible.
Of course, there’ll be a little transfer with a creamy coffee or a greasy pizza but otherwise Limbo is pretty budge-proof. It lasts me between 7-8 hours before it begins to fade in the center of my lips. Which I can still carry on well into the night if I add a little gloss. The only drawback with Limbo is that it can start to get a little drying after a while. So you’ll really have to prep well before hand — exfoliate and moisturize well!
I’m a really big fan of Limbo though and the rest of the ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks so far. They’re a great alternative to Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks at a fraction of the price and come in a wide, funky color range with cool shades like Limbo. If you’re a brown lip junkie or a liquid lip fan I highly recommend placing a ColourPop order asap! Just be careful though. They’re super addictive!
