ColourPop My Pet, Shadow Man, Bad Apple Ultra Glossy Lips Reviews & Swatches

My Pet

Colour Pop My Pet Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) has a translucent base but is packed with flecks of multi-colored pearl and larger pink-to-blue shifting sparkle. All of the shimmer and sparkle amounted to a more medium coverage gloss that still managed to feel very smooth and plush on my lips. What I really enjoy about the formula, which this shade showcases, is how smoothing it is of my lip lines, whereas a lot of gloss tends to sink into those pesky lip lines. It wore well for three hours and was hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.11 oz. – $63.64 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “hi-shine” with a “non-sticky” texture that “feels amazing” and includes five finishes “from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour.” They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn’t leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The “Tinted” finish (“glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer”) was the least consistent–sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent (“glass-like shine with subtle shimmer”) and Prismatic (“glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters”) are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a “medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter.” The Metallic is described as a “full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes.”

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Shadow Man

Colour Pop Shadow Man Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper base with lots of deep, gold shimmer and micro-sparkle. The brand said it has a “golden-green flip,” though it just read lighter/deeper gold–a little molten but not green to my eye. It was intended to have full coverage, and it had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered my lips evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, plush, and smooth without being tacky. It lasted for four hours and was moisturizing to wear.

Bad Apple

Colour Pop Bad Apple Ultra Glossy Lip ($7.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, medium red with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of ruby red and fuchsia micro-sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage (as marketed) that applied evenly (but the unevenness in my natural lip color made it seem less even) and just a touch a product in my deeper lip lines that I could see in the close-up photo but not in person. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and non-sticky, which made it easy to apply and to wear. It stayed on well for three hours and was hydrating over time.
