So, I just made an order for Colourpop a few weeks ago and I am so not guilty about it. I mainly got products from the lip section because it is infamously known for their great quality and value. I mean $6 for something of that caliber. Damn!
The Colourpop has recently branched out too a bunch of other beauty ranges like powders, highlighters, eyeshadows and a ton of different collaborations with well-known beauty aficionados. But they are mainly known to have a wide range liquid lipsticks that range from Ultra matte lip, Ultra satin lip, Ultra glossy lip, Ultra metallic lip, Lippie Stix and many many more.
Since I had the chance to order some, I had to narrowed down the products that I wanted to what I actually needed(basically the shades that I can use to work everyday). I previously purchased Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper and the Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, and after some testing I thought that the formula of the Satin Lip was WAY more comfortable to wear than the Matte Lip.
The cherry on top of all these has got to be the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money! It’s color pay-off is mind blowing! When you look at it with the packaging, it looks like a powder, but when you actually swatch it, it feels like a cream! It was love at first sight with this one! Watch out for some instagram looks with this new highlighter!

I am currently wearing this lippie as I am writing this review. I honestly did not know that The Balm have come up with liquid lipsticks ever since I received these. But to my surprise, the wear of it is quite pleasant and comfortable.
Now lets get down to the nitty gritty… The The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in Loyal & Doting that I have is nice.. It is wearable, comfortable and travel friendly. But the thing for me that separates it from other liquid lipsticks is that, it has a certain menthol scent on application. I also feel a little bit of sticky-ness on my lips when I do the thing you do when you apply lipstick. But pleasantly sticky nonetheless.
In terms of product transfer, there is not so much that it would be a problem. You have to give it time to dry first until you try to kiss a baby or something. But when it comes to lasting power, I couldn’t be too sure because I have definitely tried better in my day. But this can be a good option that is readily available in the market.
If you, my readers were to ask me which of these two are my favorite, it has to be Loyal! I love a good and lasting red liquid lipstick!
