I’m a make-up freak, addict, and hoarder. But, I am hella stingy too. So when Kylie Jenner’s matte lippies came out for $17 a piece, I was heart broken. I read soo many good reviews about it and I knew I wanted to get my hands on some of her trademark colors.
While we were in Hong Kong a few months ago, my girlfriend, Angel showed me these tubes of matte lipsticks that I’ve never heard of. She had a ton of them, Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks. She was so sweet to let me try her lipsticks on, and I liked them. I couldn’t find a seller here in Kuala Lumpur who doesn’t charge an arm and a leg, and they also take months for your order to get to Malaysia. To add to my self descriptions above, I’m impatient too.
I went online at Colourpop.com and just did my fake shopping. Have you ever done fake shopping? Click on the items that you like and put them in the cart and you don’t really purchase them. I went crazy putting a ton of items in my cart since I knew that shipping charges would be absurd and I wouldn’t really have them shipped to Malaysia. But to my surprise, when it was time to “fake” check out, it popped out that I was getting free shipping.. All the way to FREAKIN’ KUALA LUMPUR!
I stopped my fake shopping, and to husband’s dismay, did some real online shopping. But before purchasing my matte lipsticks, I did countless hours of research. They may be just $6 a piece, but I wanted to make sure that I was getting the right colors for my skin tone.
I watched a whole bunch of you tube videos, googled photo images of the colors I had in mind. Made a list, it was too long. Shortened my list, cut some stuff out again. And finally, I decided on 7 Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks.
I ordered online last October 28, and then got an email that the order was being processed, but not shipping yet. Another email came in on November 3 saying that they had a high volume of order going on and it will take some more time for them to get my lipsticks in a box, no biggie. But then the next day, 4th of November, their email said that my stuff are on the way via USPS and that it will take 7-21 days. My loot arrived yesterday, November 15!!!
I ordered 9 tubes in 7 colors. I got 2 of the Tulle and the Beeper, I’m giving the extra Beeper to my sister in Manila, and I’m hoarding the other Tulle. I also got Notion, Speed dial, More better, Bumble, and Bad habit. And they sent me 2 free items for shopping like a mad woman.
All the fotos attached below have not been filtered, just so y’all can see the real color that came out on my iphone. I think they are the same as the color in real life.
Some videos that I watched said that their lips were burning after trying out 4 colors consecutively. I did all 7 colors in 1 night, my lips did not hurt, and they did not chap. I used Maybelline’s eye and lip makeup remover and it worked pretty well.
I love all the colors, but I’d have to say that Tulle is my most favorite, and the Beeper is the least.
