ColourPop Strike a Pose & Alt Rock Contemporary Kiss Lip Lotions Evaluations & Samples

ColourPop Strike a Pose Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($ 8.00 for 0.24 oz.) Is a darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and an off-white finish that took about an hour to develop into a softer, matte finish. The paint delivery was opaque in a single coat so I would recommend using only one side of the applicator for sheer coverage if needed.

The texture felt smooth, velvety and lighter, which made it comfortable to apply and wear. It was more prone to sticking in my lip lines, however, but they could be smoothed out and were less prone to sticking back after some of the gloss wore off. It lasted a good four hours and was slightly moisturizing when worn.

Formula overview

$ 8.00 / 0.24 oz. – $ 33.33 per ounce

The formula is said to be a “hybrid” product that has the “color of a lipstick with the care of a lip balm” in a “creamy matt finish”. They described the cover as “buildable”. They have a flexible deer foot applicator with a more rounded side and a more sloping, triangular side (the latter worked well for creating sharper color lines).

The product had a more semi-opaque to opaque coverage in a single puff of the product, although one could certainly only use one side of the applicator product to provide more transparent, more buildable coverage if needed.

The consistency was mousse-like with an airy, velvety-soft handle that was easy to spread on the lips and was comfortable to wear. It wasn’t tacky, but there was a bit of adhesion with no tack, the kind I find is there with more velvety, silicone-heavy formulas like this one.

It has a rather creamy finish that wears off to a soft, matte finish after an hour or two. They do not have complete dehydration, so they are not resistant to transmission or extremely durable. They lasted between four and six hours, with deeper, reddish hues tending to last the longest and leave light stains. They easily moisturized over time. There seemed to be no smell and there was no taste.

They’re much lighter and less “wet” to the touch than the brand’s earlier Ultra Satin formula. The Ultra Satin formula adhered better and was very durable, and while it wasn’t transfer-resistant initially, it was more transfer-resistant after an hour or two of wear.

ColourPop Alt Rock Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($ 8.00 for 0.24 oz.) Is a rich, deeper plum with subtle, cool undertones and an off-white finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer that was more than marketed (“buildable”). So if you want a more transparent buildable cover, I recommend wiping down one side of the applicator before applying.

The texture was light, mousse-like and airy with a more silicone-like velvet glide and spread. This shade wore well for five hours and was slightly moisturizing over time.
