Colourpop Baracuda: Hello, everyone. I have heard a great deal about Colourpop cosmetics and couldn’t resist buying it. I already knew that Ultra Mattes dry your lips so I did not buy matte but satin.  I received it yesterday only and because I had to go out of town, I am writing this review while traveling. So, now I will go into detail as to how it worked for me.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip Color Baracuda Review

Price: $6 as on website

Net Weight: 3.2gm or 0.11oz

How to use?

Step1: Start with freshly exfoliated lips!

Step2: Apply your Ultra Satin Lip in a thin layer for most comfortable wear.

My Experience with Colourpop Baracuda

Packaging: The lip color comes in a small tube size white box. The bottle is transparent, thus, makes it easier to for you to know the quantity left.

Shade: The shade is a subtle blend of pink and red according to Colourpop, but it is almost close to mauve pink shade according to me. I did not find it to be plum shade as claimed by the site. But otherwise, it is a beautiful color. (You may even go through some same reviews by the buyers on the site)

Texture: The texture is satin and creamy, obviously. Yes, it does make your lips pigmented all day.

Staying Power: Colourpop claims that this lip color does transfer because it is, after all, not matte. But yes, it stays for like 7-8 hours which is more than usual.

Experience: After facing dryness issues of Colourpop’s other variant, Ultra Matte, I believe this is perfect if compared with it. It is not at all drying; in fact, it keeps your lips moisturized the whole time. Though it transfers, you can take care of that. Apart from this, one thing I disliked is that the color didn’t come as I expected it to be. I thought it will be mélange of red and pink; but no, it is a typical mauve pink. Not a tinge of red. But the color is amazing. It gives me a bold appearance and everyone is asking me right now which shade and brand is it.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip Color Baracuda Review 1

  1. Non-drying
  2. Attractive packaging
  3. Highly pigmented
  4. Keeps your lips moisturized all day
  5. Actual shade is also great, in fact, bold
  6. Long stay
  1. Transfers
  2. Doesn’t match the actual shade
  3. Might be a little expensive for some people because after customs duties and shipping charges, the price increases.
Would I repurchase/recommend it?

As far as shade is concerned, it is not at all what I saw on the site; so, do not buy if you are not a dark lip color person. But if you are, purchase it as soon as possible. I will repurchase it; because the shade gives me a bold look and I loved it. I will rate it 3.5 out if 5.
