Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Chilly Chili

I have been lusting after a million and one Colourpop liquid lipsticks for so long now and I was so annoyed they don't ship to the UK. There's plenty of ways around this and you can actually get your orders over to the UK, but it is a lot of hassle and involves the company sending it to an address in the USA who then send it over to you and it's just a fairly expensive process that I wasn't brave enough to do. I eventually just bought one of the shades I was after from an eBay seller, as it made more sense to me to try out one and see if I like it before taking the plunge and ordering through this long complex process.

 Anyway, I picked the shade Chilly Chili which is a purple/brown toned nude. It's very hard to describe I'm not going to lie, but it is my perfect lip colour. The formula of these liquid lipsticks is much more liquid than I was expecting, but they are really easy to work with and don't budge once they're on. I wore this on a night out and when I got home it was still perfectly in tact. Compared to my Sleek Matte Me liquid lipsticks this is much less drying, and I find it doesn't go patchy either like the Sleek ones do and they also feel weightless on the lips.

I paid £10.99 for just one, which considering they are around £5 each direct from Colourpop, is a bit steep. Saying that however, I do think they are worth the elevated cost as there is just nothing as good as this on the UK market yet, the colour range is just insane!

I think I will definitely be going ahead and making an order from their website and researching into this whole process of getting the order shipped to an address in the USA and then getting it shipped over to me. Have any of you guys done this, if so which company do you recommend?

  1. Looks SO perfect on you!! I wish wish wish I had success with the matte lip trend like this. I just aways look terrible :'( So pretty here!

  2. P.S I recommend 'SHIPITTO' for US to UK orders, but watch out, it's still possible to her horrific customs and handling charges if the package turns out heavy xx (
