ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Alyssa
Where to purchase: online at colourpop.com
Price: $6 for 3.2 g/ 0.1128 oz

Description from the website: A lightweight, comfortable, bold lipstick in Satin finish. This lipstick is extremely long wearing, although not completely kiss proof - you may leave some marks on your coffee cup!!
Thoughts: I've been wanting to try one of their Ultra Satin Lip. I heard it's the best lip line and I definitely couldn't refuse with Alyssa, my real name.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's a slight scent. It's so minimal that you barely smell it. Secondly, the packaging of satin, glossy, and matte are all the same. It can be a pro or con depending on how you see it. I personally don't mind, but it can be hard to distinguish them apart if you have similar colors. The name of the color is on the bottom of the packaging. Depending on your eye sight, it can be hard to see. Thankfully, the packaging is see through which makes it easy to see the color. It's also very travel-friendly. It is well-made and the top closes tightly. Third, the consistency is in-between medium to thick and it's very creamy. It depends on how you apply it. It can be thick. When I first tried it, I pulled the applicator out of the packaging and just applied on the lips. The thick layer made me look like I had lip injection. Then again it can just be me who thought that. After the first time trying this product, I would wipe the product off the applicator inside the tube before applying. It just looks better on me. The thing I found interesting is that the applicator is small compared to other brands similar to this product out in the market. It makes it easy to outline the lips. With that said, it went smoothly and no tugging involved. Fourth, the color is a very neutral pink. It's a great color all year round. It's great for work and smokey eyes. It's also very pigmented. Lastly, it lasts until I eat/drink. With some people, it might last longer. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after I eat. If you're looking for a liquid lipstick, this isn't it. It's a creamy lipstick in a tube. With that said, it's not drying and extremely comfortable on the lips.
