Swatches and photos: ColourPop x Karrueche Tran KaePop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks
You know I already love ColourPop's Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, and when I saw the previews for Karrueche Tran's collaboration collection, I definitely jumped at these. It's definitely an on-trend collection, and I was happy to jump on board the bandwagon. There are some eyeshadows and face products in this collection too, and they are gorgeous, but the lipsticks were what I really wanted.
There are three, and I loved how the tubes had a rose gold band/lettering rather than the usual silver. I've never seen them do that for other collaborations before, and it's really pretty.
|Kae, Rooch, Chi|
Rooch is described as "a deepened russet wine" and is my favorite of the three. I never could resist a deep red.
Chi is "a cool tone nude beige," and I'm always iffy about these lighter nude shades, so I'm not too sure about this one. It's very pretty, but I don't think it works on me. Especially since the lighter color really emphasizes the lines in my lips. I might try topping it with a gloss.
The quality is pretty consistent with ColourPop's other liquid lipsticks - yeah, they can be drying, and if your lips aren't in tip-top condition (and I do admit that mine have not been), you'll probably have to take some extra steps to make these work, like letting them soak in some lip balm or moisturizing lip primer. I did have some problems with Kae crumbling a bit at the end of the day, but it was barely noticeable, and a few dabs of tissue took care of that. (Like I said, my lips have not been in tip-top shape lately.)
So yeah, if you want to dabble in the latest lipcolor trends, and you don't want to spend a lot of money doing so, I highly recommend grabbing these KaePop colors before they're gone.
