Hey everyone! Well, this month has been the least amount of blog posts I've had so far, at this point (early/mid-May) I would probably have at least 5 posts by now. I even scheduled some posts but life got in the way: wedding planning (we're deep in planning mode now and booked our DJ, florist, and videographer), Mother's Day, went to the Bernie Sanders rally on Monday (this was a huge deal for Sacramento and his campaign for President of the U.S.), and got offered a job (okay, it's a paid internship, and it's seasonal until the end of July, but I'm super-excited and it's the beginning of my career path). I definitely have a lot to post and I am so excited to be here again!

This is my 3rd ColourPop haul, and I actually got it during the 20% off sale at the end of April. I was lucky because I was in Southern California that weekend and had to order it through my phone, and the website kept crashing, and as I pressed the button for the transaction thinking it didn't go through the first time, I made a 2nd order! I had to call customer service to erase the 2nd order.

When the Ultra Satin liquid lipsticks came out, I wasn't all too excited about the shades. However, I did order 4 of them: Lyin' King, The Rabbit, Tansy, and Toolips. I also got 1 Ultra Matte lippie: More Better, and 1 Super Shock Cheek: Cheerio. Like the Ultra Mattes, the Ultra Satin cost $6 and is in the same exact packaging, with a silver cap, holographic Colourpop logo on the tube. The ONLY difference lies in the formula: while the Ultra Matte tugs at your lip, dries down within seconds and does not budge, the Ultra Satin is more comfortable upon application. I wouldn't say it's moisturizing or healing, but it is a better option for those who suffer from chronically dry lips like I do. After it dries, it has a sticky feel. Unfortunately, it does wear off when I drink coffee. It is much easier to remove than the Ultra Mattes though, thankfully.

Before we start, I want to show you the swatches:

Here are the shades (I am also wearing the Super Shock Cheek blush in "Cheerio"...no foundation though):

Lyin' King is my favorite of the Ultra Satin bunch. It is a deep rosy/berry-ish pink. I search high and low for a shade like this, and I cannot find it...not at MAC, not at NYX, neither here (high end) nor there (drugstore). I love hot pinks, but a lot of the shades I have are too loud, too sheer, or wears off. It packs a punch without screaming for attention. To me, this is a work-friendly shade if you don't want something muted. I am so glad I got this shade, as I truly also believe it works well on all skin tones.

The Rabbit is a hot Barbie pink with blue undertones, which is very similar to the Ultra Matte Sundae. It's a little less wearable than Lyin' King but I enjoy it, especially for a night out. It does have a slight sheen, almost a subtle glossy look.

I have been wanting Tansy as I did a Google search too see how it looks like, and unfortunately I only found a handful of medium/darker skinned ladies rock this shade. This medium golden brown does not disappoint...at least, under natural light. It looks terrible and muted under my fluorescent bathroom lights. It's still so beautiful though, and this will be a regular of mine during the fall.

My least favorite has to be Toolips, this cool-toned brown. I bought it hoping it would be similar to the Ultra Matte Limbo (which is actually what I wanted since it's a dupe for the Kylie Lip Kit True Brown K), but this just looks so plain weird on me. Maybe it's because I haven't completed the look with foundation, extra eye makeup, etc. but I feel like I should have gotten Limbo, or the other Satin lippies like Prim or London Fog.

I've been lusting for More Better, one of the Ultra Mattes, since December. It sure did not disappoint! I can and will wear it all year, but it's best during the Fall. This deep berry/wine shade reminds me of MAC D for Danger, but much, much richer. The only thing I don't like? That there's no Ultra Satin shade similar to this!

Overall, I've had a pretty great haul (except for Toolips) and ColourPop did a great job on developing the Ultra Satin line. The Ultra Matte line is way too drying for me, but it didn't stop me from getting More Better. It doesn't stop me from getting other shades like Scrooge or Limbo.

I am in love...especially with More Better and Lyin' King :)

And about the blush? I got Cheerio, which is a deep berry satin blush, but shows up as more magenta on my skin tone. Still so beautiful!

Do you guys have any of the lippies from the Ultra Satin line?

    1. It was amazing, we had 21,000 attendants with 10,000 people still trying to get in! We both have great taste in lip colors I guess!

  2. They are so beautifully pigmented! Lovely shades <3 Really love the look of Toolips and wonder how it'd look on me and if I could pull it off. Lyin' King is beautiful on you, it's probably my favourite one. Having a dry lips situation for ages but always drawn to such products :)

    1. I mean, the Ultra Satins are pretty drying still, but not as bad as the Ultra Mattes. I think Toolips would look good on you as it is too muted on me

  4. Oh gosh, Ly'ing King, The Rabbit and More Better is so pretty! I missed out on the 20% and free shipping promo but I am impatiently waiting for the next promo so I can place an order! I'm too cheap to be paying extra for shipping.

    1. Yeah, it's not often that they have these sales but when they do, the website goes down. I would love another haul from them!

  5. These look gorgeous! I love them all on you, even Toolips. I wish Colourpop were more accessible in the UK. I'm determined I'll pick some of their products up one day! I think I'll skip the Ultra Mattes though & stick with the Ultra Satins as I tend to struggle with liquid lipsticks drying out my lips as it is! Xx

    1. Aww thanks! I've heard of ways UK bloggers are able to get Colourpop, so maybe you could look that up? The Ultra Satins are still pretty drying but nowhere near as much as the Ultra Mattes

  7. Funny enough, I just bought a ColourPop Haul online but I didn't get any of the Satin Lips unfortunately. Just the matte! These look incredible, Tansy looks gorgeous on you! I wish there were more gals with medium-tan skin showing off these gorgeous lippies!
