The Next Trend in Lips

Awhile ago, I saw that ColourPop had introduced a new lip line. They haven't done this since the Ultra Satin Lip that I freaking love, so you can imagine my excitement. I finally got around to ordering a up a couple colors in their Ultra Blotted Lip collection and I've gotta say, I'm impressed. They're not my all time favorite lip formula (this is pretty well tied between ColourPop's Ultra Satin Lip and Marc Jacobs' Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick) but I do really enjoy the effect.

These are meant to have a diffused look like you've maybe blotted your lips or, as ColourPop puts it, have maybe been sucking on a popsicle and the color leftover is the same sort of effect. I'm not so sure about the whole popsicle thing, but here's what I know after trying them: I really like the effect. They dry matte, but you end up with this very light coverage, diffused sort of look. Also, it doesn't transfer and is relatively long wearing.

You can build these up to have more coverage than what I'm showing here. This is basically a single swipe. I will say, they do feel slightly drying on the lips, which is not my favorite thing, but I'm willing to make the sacrifice for the look. What do you think? Have you tried these yet? Let me know in the comments below!

PS ColourPop also has this version of the blotted lip, which I haven't tried, but might soon!
