What ColourPop Pop Says: Whether you’re from Mars or Venus this fuchsia will be fab on you!
My Take on ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick MARS:
Packaging: ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Mars comes in a glass finish transparent tube with a metallic cap. I think the packaging is a little fragile than expected and I always end up treating it with care as if the lipstick will break if I drop it. The applicator does a good job, but I think the head of the applicator could have been a little flexible. Shade name for the lipstick is mentioned at the bottom of the tube and cardboard box in which the lipstick comes in.
Consistency: The consistency of this gorgeous matte liquid lipstick is towards the the runny/watery side while it is applied. I did not experience any tug on my lips and it spread easily on my lips. However, once the lipstick dries out it sets in a powder base absolute matte finish.
Pigmentation: Here is the best part of this lipstick, it is superbly pigmented. One swipe and lo, it covers my naturally brown lips with gorgeous reddish mixed poppy fuchsia color. I am totally in love with the color and pigmentation.
I need a heavy moisturizer on my lips before applying this matte lipstick. It is extremely drying once it is settles on lips. But the color is so brilliant that this has become my go-to lipstick. I think it will look flattering on all skin tones and suits a dusky girl like me brilliantly. It leaves a pink tint on lips while fading. As it is powder based, the lipstick fades with powder particles. It cannot survive a full meal, but does well with dry snacks.The staying power of this lipstick is good and stays for 8 hours without eating a full meal (have tried that when I was on back to back meetings).
All in all, Mars from ColourPop is hot shade for the season and it transforms a simple girl into a diva within a minute. Totally a selfie worthy shade.
