A super intense metalized liquid lipstick created with high-impact metallic pearls. This formula is not completely transfer-resistant but is very long-wearing while still being smooth and comfortable on the lips.
Price: 6$ in the USA or 700/- INR for 2.8g
My take on the Colorpop Ultra Metallic Lip Kween:
Metallic lips are the next best thing after matte lips that I generally prefer. Buy yes, some occasions demand for a more glam lip color rather than a dull matte shade and then these metallic lip colors come in for our rescue. I already love my Kylie metallic lip color that is ultra-comfortable to wear but the price is a hindrance. Colorpop cosmetics are a boon for lip color lovers like me as they can be grabbed at a much lesser price and the quality is at par too. So here is my review on a metallic lip color called Kween from Colorpop.
Shade: ‘Kween’ is described as a red, a marsala metallic with gold glitter shade by the brand. The shade is a warm red color with golden shimmer. It looks very pretty both alone and on top of any red/maroon lip color. The shade will universally flatter all skin tones. The warm undertones makes it a must have for the Indian skin tone.
Texture: The metallic lip color is light weight in texture and sits comfortable for hours once applied. It is highly pigmented and 1-2 swipes give a great color pay-off. The color tends to bleed alone so a lip liner will come handy for outlining the lips first and then applying the product. It is water resistant and doesn’t fade away easily.
Longevity: The lip color stays put for several hours at a stretch. It does fade away after a meal still I don’t find a need of re-applying the color. The slight golden shimmer may require the use of a makeup remover to get completely removed.
Packaging: The lip color comes in standard round plastic transparent pack with silver metallic cap. The small doe shaped foam applicator packs enough color for a single time use. The pack is both sturdy and travel friendly.
Pros of the Colorpop Ultra Metallic Lip Kween:
- Lovely warm red shade
- Comfortable texture
- The golden glitters are nicely packed and don’t look OTT.
- Universally flattering shade
- Highly pigmented.
- Great staying power
- Survives a meal
Cons of the Colorpop Ultra Metallic Lip Kween:
- Color a bleed so a lip liner must be used.
- Prep the lips nicely. Shade may not work on chapped lips.
- High price difference in getting these from IG sellers.
