ColourPop Chilly Chili Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick Review
Limited edition lipsticks give me a happy feeling but nothing compares to when they finally become permanent. Oh happy day! Not too long ago, ColourPop whipped up 5 new Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks that were originally released as limited edition shades for fall but it looks like they’ve made the cut to the permanent lineup. I always love when that happens ’cause it not only gives me a chance to try the other shades but it also gives me the opportunity to share it with you. Double win!
The first shade I went for in the fall gang was Chilly Chili. It’s a warm mauvey brown with a hint of pink that’s very easy to pull off and flattering on every complexion. I was actually expecting something a little deeper and more brown but Chilly Chili turned out to be a perfect “my lips but better” liquid lipstick. I can easily slip this baby on and go for a natural lip look that lasts all day. No lip liner required!
In true ColourPop fashion, the formula is right on point too. Chilly Chili is super easy to apply as it glides on smoothly and evenly with full coverage in a single swipe. The Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks have a thin, almost watery texture that I find super easy to control and sets rather quickly (around a minute or so) to a budge-proof ultra matte finish.
Most nude lipsticks never last past the 4 hour mark on me but thanks to Chilly Chili’s indestructible liquid formula I’m able to get over 6 hours of wear before I notice some slight fading in the center. Chilly Chili doesn’t completely begin to fade until around 8-9 hours making it a killer work lip choice.
The only drawback is that you really have to prep your lips before applying Chilly Chili and make sure you keep a little balm on hand because it can get drying as it begins to fade. Which is normal for liquid-to-matte lipsticks. Once Chilly Chili starts to feel a little dry I just apply a little balm or gloss on top and I’m good to go. You already know I’m a ColourPop junkie so I may be a little biased when I say this but if you haven’t tried any of their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks you’re seriously missing out! Chilly Chili is like my holy grail nude lip right now. It’s a brown gal must have!
