ColourPop Cryin ‘and Gen X Velvet Blur Lux Lipsticks Evaluations & Samples

ColourPop Cryin ‘Velvet Blur Lux lipstick ($ 7.50 for 0.12 oz.) Is a medium dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had almost opaque paint coverage in one layer that was stronger than marketed. The texture was light, smooth, and velvety that was thin without feeling sticky.

I noticed that the lip texture / lip wrinkle formula is more forgiving than in the past. It lasted well for four hours and felt slightly moisturizing over time.

It is said to have a “soft focus, blurring effect” with “buildable” color, which “High Impact Color” can deliver with a “silky, velvety texture” that “smooths out fine lines and imperfections” without “drying out the lips” . “They have a velvety slip because they are filled with silicone, so they feel smooth when they go over your lips, but have a light, almost powder-like finish that makes me think of a ‘soft mat’. Off At a normal viewing distance, such as looking into a mirror or another person who is looking at you during a personal conversation, I saw the “blurring” effect in contrast to the close-up of the lips in the mirror – soft, slightly subtle color with a matt finish. The lack of coverage in some of them gave them a “softer” look to my eye.

That being said, I haven’t experienced any smoothing, and I haven’t personally found that the more silicone-heavy lipstick formulas go as far as to smooth my lip lines; In fact, I’d feel like they’re more likely to emphasize imperfections if the lipstick clings to flakes and settles into lip lines. There were some shades that were applied more unevenly and were more likely to set noticeably in my lip lines than others, and some that were applied evenly and also flattered me in terms of texture. As always, when I’m not testing lip products (at night and the like), I do my best to make sure I regularly exfoliate and moisturize my lips to have a “good” canvas for lip color.

Opacity varied from hue to hue, with most hues offering medium buildable coverage, although some of the deeper, more vibrant hues were more semi-opaque to almost opaque in a single layer. The color faded a little more easily from the center of my lips compared to the outer edges, but was fairly even in wear. Only the deepest / reddish hues stained my lips (and only slightly) after wearing them. They mostly didn’t seem to dry out, but some felt a little drier to me. The formula has a sweet burnt sugar smell but no noticeable taste.

ColourPop Gen X Velvet Blur Lux lipstick ($ 7.50 for 0.12 oz.) Is a light to medium pink with moderate, warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque buildable pigmentation that was slightly higher than described, but the color continued evenly.

The texture felt smooth, velvety, and thin to the touch, making it easy to wear, but it tended to get noticeably lodged in my lip lines. This shade lasted a good three hours and felt slightly moisturizing when worn.
