I came home to a package in the mail. I always get excited about packages in the mail. The only thing we get in the mail are advertisements or bills. I opened it and – voila! COLOURPOP. COLOURPOP. COLOURPOP! A dear friend of mine decided that she was going to love me and give me a collection of wonderful lip colors to brighten my life!
Ultra Satin Lip – Frick’N Frack. Ultra Matte Lip – Avenue. Mini Ultra Matte Lip Collection – Beeper/Clueless/Tulle/More Better/Creeper. I CAN’T EVEN. Of course, I had to try it all on tonight when the babies fell asleep. But of course my impatient self couldn’t wait that long. I waited until baby Shane fell asleep, but had to deal with baby Dom trying to get his hands inside the toilet while I attempted to put on these matte lips in the bathroom.
Ultra Satin Lip – Frick’N Frack. I look so darn good. It goes on smooth and looks even smoother when it’s on. The color is perfectly dark, but not too dark. Not too whore-y and not too goth. It’s wonderful. It’s the perfect fall church color. And did I mention how darn good it looks? I did only have it on for a few minutes so I’m unsure about how hydrating it is or how drying it is on the lips, but I am excited to wear it for a full day and to see how it holds up.
Ultra Matte Lip – Avenue. Can I just say that if I was a stripper or a professional escort, this would be my lip color? This is the hottest fall red. It’s dark. It’s intimidating. I think this will be my color when I want to intimate the crap out of whoever I’m meeting that day.
Beeper – It’s a basic nude, it seems. I’m not one for nude colors, but I’m okay with this shade! It’s a darker nude-ish color, but it looks pretty good. It’s basic so it’s perfect for a church or every day color where you don’t want to have a huge fashion statement, but still want to feel pretty.
Clueless – It’s pink! If you want an absolute feminine pink, this is it. It’s adorable, pink, cotton-candy-colored, and the color you want to have on when you are in a Notebook-like date.
Tulle – I thought I would like this better since I read all these hyped up reviews online before trying it on. It’s darker like the Avenue, but not as dark. It’s definitely a nice fall color and a step less scarier than the Avenue matte color. This may be a color that I put on when I don’t want to slay, but still want to look like a force that shouldn’t be reckoned with.
More Better – Red, red, red! It’s a deep red. Step up from Tulle. Lighter than Tulle, but deeper than Creeper. I love this as an every day, no-occasion, want-some-color, pop.
Creeper – This is the brightest red I have ever tried on. BUT IT LOOKS GOOD. It’s not a chalky red where it ruins your face and you fade into oblivion in the neon-ness of your lips. It pops, but still allows you to be the star. It’s a color Penelope Garcia proudly wear and pull off. It’s a miracle this type of color goes well with this skin tone, but it looks darn good.
I cannot begin to think of the ways I can thank my friend for giving me this wonderful indulgence. I hope one day I can return the favor and give her something amazingly thoughtful like she has done for me.
I heart you, Jasmine Frazier Charles! ❤
