ColourPop came out of nowhere and suddenly they have exploded and taken over the whole internet. So naturally as a product junkie, I have been coveting literally everything they carry, but prices are so high here that I wasn’t really motivated to buy anything. Until I discovered a little secret which I’ll share later. But yes! Finally I have in my possession, a few Colourpop products!

To make it a not so long review, I’m going to divide it into 3 parts, I’ll talk about three Ultra Mattes in this post, and the next two and a summary and tell you my favourites in another post, then review the highlighter in a separate post. Got it? Let’s go!
These were my first foray into the world of liquid lipsticks. I’ve tried one Chinese brand that’s readily available here and super cheap though but I found that so dry I could literally feel my lips cracking and begging for moisture after about 5 minutes so I tossed it.
Today I’m gonna be talking about Guess, More Better and Rooch.
Because Rooch is a collaboration between ColourPop and Karrueche Tran, it has gold accents while the others have silver accents. I think the packaging is pretty cute and I really love the holographic lettering.
According to ColourPop: This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof! We suggest storing these babies upright and shaking before application!
They dry fairly quickly but with enough time to make adjustments.
It comes with a standard doe foot applicator. It’s nothing special, but it gets the job done. The formula is pretty runny, but not so runny that it drips all over the place.
Guess is described as a dark blackened violet and that’s exactly what it is. It’s a beautiful vampy colour which looks amazing on dark skin. It is pigmented enough for only one swipe but I prefer two swipes to make the colour pop a lot more.
More Better is described as a deep violet wine. This is definitely not violet or wine. On me it pulls more fuchsia than wine. They’re supposed to be kiss and transfer proof but More Better definitely transfers, which I find surprising because it dries down completely matte. Pigmented in one swipe.
Rooch is described as a deepened russet wine. Honestly I don’t see the russet or wine when I wear this. It pulls more brown with wine undertones on me, which a vinyl-like finish. It is opaque in one swipe. It’s the only one that I noticed has a tendency to settle into lip lines.
I love a matte lip as much as the next person but not traipsing – through – the – Sahara dry, and from reading reviews, I was expecting these to be very dry but they are surprisingly lightweight and extremely comfortable to wear. I kid you not. However they are impossible to get off, and I feel like I’m taking off one layer of my lips when I try to scrub these off haha. Exfoliation is key before application. They are intensely pigmented and glide on with ease.
Part two of my ColourPop haul coming pretty soon. Have you tried any of the ultra mattes? What was your experience with them?
