COLOURPOP Ultra Satin Lip | Liquid Lipstick


ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Lipsticks (0.11 oz.) individually retail for $6 USD and are available in 16 shades. They are said to be "a lightweight, comfortable, long wearing bold lipstick with a satin finish."

"Our Ultra Satin Lip is a lightweight, bold lipstick with a Satin finish. A super comfortable feel and healthy satin look for you lips. Ultra Satin Lip has a crazy high percentage of pigments for extra intense colour saturation. This lipstick is extremely long wearing, although not completely kiss proof– you may leave some marks on your coffee cup! Start by prepping the lips with Lippie Primer, this will moisturize the lips and improve the texture - providing a smooth surface so that your Ultra Satin Lip goes on smoothly and lasts all day! Next, line with Lippie Pencil to perfect the lip line and fill lips in with Ultra Satin Lip."
The packaging is a clear gloss style tube with a silver chrome cap. They feature a standard doe-foot applicator and have no noticeable scent or taste. The formula itself is a thin mousse-like consistency that feels lightweight and comfortable on the lips. They do dry down to a degree, but remain satin unlike your more typical matte liquid lipsticks—the color never clings or feels drying. It's a much more forgiving formula for chapped lips, the color doesn't cling or overly accentuate dry areas.

The product can lightly transfer throughout wear, especially once it's first applied since they only set to a satin finish and they do have a slight tackiness when pressing your lips together—nothing that's overly noticeable or bothersome. The Ultra Satin Lipsticks are also longer lasting as they typically wear between 6 - 10 hours.




Echo Park is a light-medium, muted peach beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. Due to the lighter nature of this shade, I found that the color did ever so slightly fall into lip lines during wear. Regardless, it applied smoothly, evenly and had opaque pigmentation. Echo Park wore well for +6.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* ColourPop Parker (LE) was darker, more pink, creamy. ColourPop Magic Wand was lighter, less pink. MAC Velvet Teddy was warmer, creamy. Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake was darker, more peach, glossy.

Frick 'N Frack is a medium-dark, muted plum rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied very smoothly and even on the lips. It never felt drying and the color didn't feather or fall into lip lines over time. Frick N' Frack lasted +8 hours before fading. (5/5)
* ColourPop Mosh Pit (LE) was lighter, glossy. Kat Von D Lolita (Liquid) was lighter, muted, more mauve. Kat Von D Lolita (Lipstick) was brighter, more terracotta. OFRA Mocha was similar.




London Fog is a medium-dark, muted cherry red with cool undertones and a satin finish. Despite being a more bold shade, there were no troubles creating a clean, crisp edge—it was an incredibly easy shade to work with. It had opaque, even pigmentation that applied smoothly and never felt drying. London Fog wore well for +8.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* ColourPop Jingle (LE) was warmer, more red, glossy. Clinique Cherry Pop was more true red, glossy. OFRA Atlantic City was warmer, more orange toned. Stila Fiery was cooler, more true red.

Lyin' King is a medium-dark, muted raspberry with hints of pink, cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had excellent, opaque color payoff. It created clean edges easily and didn't feather or feel drying over time. Lyin' King lasted +8.5 hours and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
* Sephora Collection To The Rescue (LE) was lighter, more metallic. Bite Beauty Aubergine was darker, more berry. ColourPop Scrooge (LE) was lighter, warmer, more pink. MAC D For Danger was lighter, warmer, more red. OFRA Santa Ana was warmer.

Magic Wand is a light-medium, peach beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. Once again due to the lighter nature, the color did lightly fall into lip lines during wear. It wore smoothly and had great pigmentation overall. I also found this particular shade had more slip during application, but it never caused the product look uneven or streaky on the lips. Magic Wand lasted +6 hours before fading. (5/5)
ColourPop Echo Park was darker, more peach. Kat Von D Bow N Arrow was cooler, more brown, muted. Nudestix Whisper was lighter, less brown, creamy. OFRA Sao Paulo was lighter, more nude.

Marshmallow is a light-medium, muted grey lavender with cool undertones and a satin finish. Unlike the other lighter shades, I didn't find that the color settled or gravitated towards lip lines during wear. It applied evenly, had smooth coverage and excellent, opaque pigmentation. Marshmallow lasted +8.5 hours before showing major signs of fading. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Lavender Thistle (LE) was warmer, more pink, glossy. Kat Von D Requiem was lighter, more pink. Kat Von D Coven was brighter, more purple. NYX Playdate was warmer, more pink, glossy.

Mess Around is a medium-dark, muted taupe brown with hints of grey, neutral undertones and a satin finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had rich, opaque color payoff, although the consistency was thinner, more liquidy than the rest. It had quite a strong sheen for the first hour of wear, but dulled down over time. Mess Around wore well for +8 hours before showing major signs of fading. (5/5)
* ColourPop Teeny Tiny was darker, more red, muted. ColourPop TooLips was darker, more berry. Kat Von D Bow N Arrow was much lighter, warmer. MAC Stone was less grey, warmer.

Panda is a medium-dark, brightened berry with hints of purple, warm undertones and a satin finish. While it had great pigmentation, I found it could appear more purple in some areas on a closer look—regardless, it was still very bold and had even coverage on the lips. The formula was easily to apply and didn't settle into lip lines. Panda lasted +8.5 hours and left behind a satin. (5/5)
* ColourPop Glitter (LE) was brighter, warmer, more fuchsia. ColourPop Plastics (LE) was similar, warmer. MAC Instigator was darker, more maroon. OFRA New Orleans was cooler, more purple.

Petit Four is a medium-dark, muted steel blue with hints of grey, cool undertones and a satin finish. I found this shade had more of a noticeable sheen that did dull down during wear when compared to the others in this formula. It still applied very smoothly, evenly and had excellent, opaque color payoff. Petit Four lasted +8 hours and left behind a very subtle stain. (5/5)
* J.Cat Splashed was warmer, more blue.

Prim is a medium-dark, muted burgundy red with warm undertones and a satin finish. This was the darkest shade out of the entire collection, it also had excellent performance. It applied evenly, smoothly and created clean, crisp edges easily. The color payoff was rich and didn't feather or bleed during wear. Prim wore well for +8.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Cognoc was lighter, more brown. Kat Von D Damned was darker, more burgundy. MAC Antique Velvet was more brown, muted. OFRA Honolulu was less red, muted. Too Faced Chocolate Cherries was more red, glossy.

The Rabbit is a medium-dark, brightened fuchsia pink with blue iridescent shift, cool undertones and a satin finish. I felt this shade had a very subtle transparency to it, despite being very richly pigmented, but it wasn't noticeable since the vivid color and iridescent violet shift really hides that—it's a very eye catching, more unique shade. The formula applied evenly and never bled or feathered. The Rabbit lasted +8.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* MAC What's Going On? (LE) was similar, glossy. Urban Decay Firebird (LE) was similar, warmer. Kat Von D Sexer was lighter, cooler, more blue.

TooLips is a medium-dark, muted brown with hints of maroon, cool undertones and a satin finish. Once again, for being a darker shade it applied smoothly and very crisp around the edges. It had great, opaque pigmentation that sat evenly on the lips throughout wear. TooLips lasted +8.5 hours and left behind a satin. (5/5)
* ColourPop Teeny Tiny was lighter, warmer. MAC Stone was lighter, warmer, muted. OFRA Honolulu was darker, warmer, more burgundy.

OverallColorPop really nailed this formula—they truly are incredible lipsticks! While they don't dry to a completely transfer-proof finish, if you fancy the idea behind a long-wearing, highly pigmented lip color, but find regular liquid-to-matte lipsticks to be overly drying and uncomfortable, than without doubt, you will likely end up being a huge fan of these. With that said, I do highly recommend checking the Ultra Satin Lip Liquid Lipsticks out!
