Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lip in Kween

Metallic lips seem to be all the rage lately and since I refuse to give any of my money to any of the Kardashians (seriously, why do those lip kits get so much hype anyway?!) I grabbed one from Colourpop when they first came out with metallics. This one is in the color Kween.

The color was the only one that grabbed my eye in the first launch of these, just because I didn't think I would wear any of the other colors much. This is a rusty red shade with lots of gold sparkle, very pretty.
I have an issue with the wand not picking up much product, and I'm not sure if it's just a wonky one or what. I will eventually pick up a few more once they have new shades, but that is my one gripe with the packaging here. It also doesn't feel like there's much product actually inside the tube either.
The lipstick has no scent to it,  and is very lightweight. It sets right away and I was really surprised to find that it's pretty much transfer-proof. It will fade in the middle while eating, but that's to be expected with most of these liquid lip products.

I was also surprised to find that this wasn't super drying on my lips. It does tend to stain (this color does anyway), and is a little hard to take off when you try to just use a makeup wipe and not an oil remover.
All in all, I like this a lot. It is something I'd definitely grab more of next time they release more shades, as long as I'm into the colors!


  1. I really enjoy your reviews. Especially the comment about not giving your money to the Kardashians. lol.
