Hello everyone! I made a purchase a few weeks ago during Colourpop’s Labor Day sale. I purchased three Ultra Matte Lips for under $12! For every $10 you spent you got a free lipstick. I already own a handful of these, but I wanted a couple more options for Fall. I purchased the shades Love Bug, Lumiere 2, and Limbo. Love Bug was the shade I got for free.
Love Bug is described as a Terracotta red. Call me crazy, but I don’t think I have anything like this. I love this color! This is definitely my favorite out of the 3 I purchased. It appears much darker on the lips once its dried. I wish it was more similar to the actual shade of the tube, but I still love it! The formula of this one is also very different. It’s thicker, easier to apply, and not watery like the others.
This shade is a dusty mauve. I don’t have the original Lumiere but I believe it’s lighter. The only color similar from my collection is Too Faced Queen B. Lumiere 2 is a bit darker. You can check out my review on Queen B here. Even though the formula to this one is watery, it’s not difficult to apply.
Limbo is a deep chocolate brown. For the longest time I was not a fan of brown lipsticks. I finally decided to give one a try and before I spent over $20 on one, I decided to go with a more affordable one first. I actually disliked this one the most. It was SUPER watery and soooooo difficult to apply. It took me three tries to finally get it right. I liked how the color looked with my eyeshadow, but I don’t think I will ever use this one again. I have my eyes on Too Faced Naughty by Nature or Smashbox True Grit.
Overall, I would recommend Love Bug and Lumiere 2. Love Bug for sure! It’s a great shade for Fall. Colourpop is so affordable and they always have a $5 coupon that practically covers shipping.
Thanks for reading!
