ColourPop Fall Edit Review (Part 2): Ultra Matte Mama, Ultra Satin Calypso (Gypsy)Sunday, October 30, 2016
So I am sitting here on All Hallows Eve, surfing Netflix for horror movies worth my time (that's my favorite genre) and I realize that there aren't very many. The one's that are worth it, I have already watched... years ago! That has absolutely nothing to do with this post besides that fact that I am watching/listening to a really bad horror movie (Hansel vs. Gretel) as I type this. This experience, however, is the opposite of what I feel about ColourPop's Ultra Matte in Mama ($6.00) and their Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso ($6.00).
When I purchased Calypso, it was called Gypsy. Confusing when I was looking for it again, but the page seems to redirect to Calypso. I reckon better safe than sorry! Not sure what the reasoning behind that was but I can guess. Calypso is described as a mid-tone pinky nude and it pulls that way on my dark skin. It is an Ultra Satin Lip so it dries down just a bit, but not completely and does transfer. I did have to blot Calypso in order for it not to seem too cool on me. I don't find it particularly moisturizing but it's not drying either. Their Ultra Satin line is a great compromise for people that find their Ultra Mattes too drying.
I have talked about Mama before and did a preview post of it a few weeks back. It's a true burnt orange according to ColourPop and was brighter than I thought it would be. It's still quite beautiful and definitely on time for fall and Halloween and even though it's orange, it's wearable.
