Just when I thought ColourPop couldn’t come up with a more amazing lipstick than the Ultra Matte Lipsticks they turn around and release the Ultra Satin Lipsticks. Sorry Ultra Matte Lips, you’ve had an amazing year in 2015 but this year is all about the Ultra Satin Lips! The Ultra Matte Lipsticks will always be bomb to me but we all know they’re a bit drying so it was like music to my ears when I found out that ColourPop was releasing a more dry lip friendly liquid lipstick that’s almost as good as the Ultra Matte Lips without the the intense dryness.
I recently ordered a handful of the new Ultra Satin Lipsticks but my favorite shade at the moment is Tansy. Tansy is a medium yellow brown that’s one of the most unique nude lipstick shades I’ve ever seen. Tansy is a bit heavy on the yellow undertone but I absolutely love it because it’s still very wearable and meshes well with my brown skin and warm undertone. In fact, every time I wear it to work people stop and ask, “Omg what lipstick is that!?” Tansy is just an all around flattering nude that’s not just unique but also insanely beautiful and flattering on a variety of complexions.
The formula is very impressive too. The Ultra Satin Lip formula is much thicker than the Ultra Matte Lip formula with a more mousse like consistency that’s still airy and lightweight with a creamy texture. Tansy applies like a dream with intense pigmentation and full coverage in a single swipe. The color goes on smoothly and evenly without emphasizing the texture or fine lines of my lips and without sucking all of the moisture throughout the day.
Tansy wears quite comfortably for around 5-6 hours before it begins to fade into an even stain. There’s no flaking, peeling or incessant need for lip balm as it begins to wear off which is a welcome change from the more drying Ultra Matte Lips. I’ve never struggled too much with the Ultra Matte Lip formula but I never fully realized just how high maintenance it can be until I tried on Tansy. Tansy is much more carefree without the need to keep a gloss or balm handy to make sure my lips aren’t looking crazy dry after hours and hours of non-stop talking. The only drawback is that Tansy doesn’t wear nearly as long as my beloved Ultra Matte Lips. It doesn’t last me an entire work shift and definitely doesn’t hold up after a meal but Tansy is very easy to reapply and doesn’t require an intense prep routine so I can live with the shorter wear. If you’ve been hesitating to try the new ColourPop Ultra Satin Lipsticks I highly recommend you run your butt online to ColourPop and add a couple (or few) to your cart because they’re well worth the $6 and sell out insanely fast. Trust me when I say you don’t want to wait for those restocks!
