Starting off the week with some more ColourPop goodness! Out of my recent ColourPop purchases Cheap Thrills is one of my favorites! Even though it had some issues.

Cheap Thrills is described as a dusty lilac. It’s such a pretty shade! Even the description sounds pretty! The issues I had? Well, it’s nothing like the other Ultra Matte Lip products I’ve tried from ColourPop. The applicator was a little odd, but I was still able to apply the lipstick without having to reach for my lip brush. The other applicators felt more padded and were comfortable. This one not so much. It was thinner and sort of stiff. The lipstick wasn’t as watery as the others and never seemed to fully dry down. My lips were a little tacky throughout the day. It wasn’t so bad though. It still applied perfectly and lasted all day with a few minor touch-ups after eating and drinking. I wouldn’t say this shade felt lightweight, but it wasn’t totally uncomfortable either.

I definitely prefer the formula on the other Ultra Matte Lip products I’ve tried in the past to this one. But the shade really is pretty and it looks so much nicer in person. Sometimes I can overlook a few issues if I really dig the shade. And I really dig this shade! You can see Cheap Thrills in action below!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Mine was great! My family and I went to visit with the MIL. We brought her gifts and had some dinner together. It was nice. I really look forward to our Sunday meals together. Something I never thought I’d say. It’s funny how much can change in just a few years.

I don’t really post about things that don’t work for me. And I certainly don’t like posting unflattering photos of myself. Although after some time I feel all of my photos are unflattering. But I figured I’d change things up today and share this little gem with y’all.

I’m always tempted to try some of those ‘out there shades.’ Out there for me is a shade I wouldn’t dare wear outdoors. Some people can rock the hell out of green and blue lipstick, but I’m so not one of those people. And now I can add greyed out lavender to the list. I’m sure I can make it work by mixing it with another lipstick, but on its own? Nope. You can see my hell no finger wagging self down below. You’re welcome.

The photo above was taken during my first test. Usually I apply a light layer of lip balm before applying any lipstick. That just made the product slide around my lips making for an uneven application. I tried to get it to spread evenly, but had no luck. I tested it again this time without the lip balm and it applied perfectly. However, it still wasn’t doing me any favors. It was a very comfortable wear and I really like the finish. Also, the Ultra Satin Lip isn’t watery like the Ultra Mattes I’ve tried. It’s definitely more of a creamier lipstick. It’s very nice. If only it didn’t make me look sickly. Which I guess is the theme of the week thanks to this awful cold from hell. Have I complained enough about this cold? No?

I did end up getting a few more shades from the Ultra Satin Lip collection. Thankfully the other shades worked out for me. I had a feeling Marshmallow wasn’t going to work out, but I just had to try it. It’s funny because the husband was just as bummed that it didn’t work for me. He really loves the shade. So do I. So do I…

It’s been a while since I’ve shown ColourPop some love. Believe it or not I have a bunch of ColourPop stuff to post still. I don’t even think I’ve gotten started on the highlighters. Those will have to wait though because I still have a bunch of Ultra Matte Lip products to post. Starting with Seesaw!

Seesaw is described as a pastel lavender pink. I feel like it looks much darker on my lips. It looks much more pastel on everyone else but me. I’m not complaining though. I think it’s a really pretty shade. It applied nicely and felt comfortable for a while. It felt a little drying after about 4-5 hours, but it wasn’t too bad. It still looked pretty good at the end of the day. You can see Seesaw in action below.

Now this has me feeling a little more upbeat and excited for Spring!
