My take on Colorpop Ultra Matte Lip Lumiere 2:

Being an ardent fan of Colorpop cosmetics, especially their ultra-matte and ultra-satin range, I picked this not so bright shade called Luminere 2, which is a part of the Kathleen lights collaboration range by the brand. I already like the texture of ultra-mattes so here is my review on one of the n*de color from this range.

Shade: Luminere 2 is described as a deep dusty mauve but for me the color is more of a dusty lilac and is also not very deep. It may appear deeper on very fair skin tone but on my Indian skin tone, the shade appears more as a light dusty lilac than mauve.

The shade would suit fair to medium skin tones well but it may completely wash-out deeper skin tones. The color is more of n*de shade and can be worn with a smokey eyes. I prefer this color with a full-on base makeup else it doesn’t suit me much too. The slight cool undertones make it not so wearable alone.

Texture: Ultra-matte texture is super pigmented and dries off to a complete matte finish within seconds of application. It sits comfortably on the lips and doesn’t budge once sets for hours at a stretch. The color doesn’t bleed or feather. As it is matte, prior lip exfoliation/conditioning is a must to make it look prettier.

The texture is thin watery kind that applies evenly and sets pretty quickly. The light texture is one thing that makes these ultra-mattes feather light upon application.

Staying power: The shade easily stays on for 6 hours with a meal in between. It may fade away from the centre of the lips after a meal and you may need a re-application. Shade survives light snacks or drinks easily. It fades away without settling into lip lines.

Packaging: The lipcolor comes in a round transparent plastic tube with a metallic silver cap. The doe shaped applicator makes the application easy. The pack is sturdy and travel friendly.
