Fall Lip Colors

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Happy Tuesday everyone! Up until the past year or so, I was always too scared to try a bold lip color. My go to was this shade that is pretty close to my natural lip tone. Last Fall I decided to try out some new bolder lip colors. I started out with a nice red perfect for the holidays and a deep burgundy. I was instantly hooked and started buying more and more shades.

Lately, I've been seeing so many posts on Instagram about ColourPop and their amazing lip colors. After reading so many awesome reviews I decided to pick up two of their lip bundles - Truth Be Told and Out and About. $30 for 6 lip glosses with free shipping is a steal in my book!

I am so impressed with these colors and needless to say I will be buying more! Today I wanted to share with you some swatches and my initial thoughts.

I'll start with Truth Be Told. How cute is this packaging? The middle color, First Of All, is what really caught my eye. What I like about these lip glosses is that they are fast drying so you don't have to worry about smudges. They also stay on all day. I had a tough time removing them even with makeup remover wipes. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing LOL.

Check out these swatches:
(Top to bottom: First Of All, Ambush, Cashing Out)

Overall, I was impressed with the colors and the quality. My only complaint is that Cashing Out is a little darker than I expected. But I'm still going to try it out because I think it could be perfect with the right outfit and a neutral eye!

Next up is Out And About and just like the Truth Be Told bundle I am loving the packaging! Now I know I said I wanted to try bolder colors in the beginning of the post, but since I'm new to this brand I figured I would try out some more neutral colors as well. I am in love with these shades and both the satin and matte formulas are great. I'm pleased with how consistent the products are between the two bundles as these glosses dry fast and last all day just as the last bundle I talked about did.

More swatches for you all to check out:

I'd have to say that this is my favorite out of the two. The colors are more neutral, but add a little more pop of color than a typical nude lip product would. I think these colors can be worn on a day to day basis as well as for more formal events.

Overall, I am very pleased with both lip bundles and am so happy that I decided to finally try out ColourPop. I am extremely impressed with everything about these products from the packaging to the wear time. I can't wait to try more of their products!
