ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Cheap Thrills Swatch


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.

  4. Strange that the formula would change so much throughout the line. But the shade really suits you.
    And a great thing that you enjoy your MIL visits. A little chat about beauty can really brighten such a visit, I assume.

    • Isn’t it? All of the others I’ve tried had the same watery consistency, but dried down quickly and perfectly.
