Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Notion

I own enough Ultra Matte lipsticks (no such thing, really, but my wallet tells me to cool it) so I limited myself to just one lipstick when I placed an order for a friend.

The one I selected was Notion.


Colourpop describes it as a “deepened raspberry”.

I think this is not inaccurate, but I’d also call it a strongly berried burgundy.


Here is the swatch.



It lasts for about 4 hours without fading. If I consume food or drink, it comes off for sure. Other than that, it’s a good lip product.

I think Temptalia graded this an A-. I agree with her. It’s pretty great as a lipstick but it has some minor issues.

    I absolutely love this shade – I have it, too!

  4. Arent these kind of lipsticks meant tosurvive zombie apocalypse without smudging? I thought that was the whole point of liquid lipsticks. But I don’t have many, so please enlighten me.

    • It doesn’t really smudge, but by the 5th hour it fades just a little in the center. I thought it was worth mentioning because that was the time fading occurred, so by the 6th or 7th hour one should look out for more serious fading. Keep in mind that all dark lipsticks go through this.

  5. Probably not my color, but it does sound nice.

    I love these deep red shades! I’ve just gotten my first ColourPop products and I can’t wait to try them!

  7. I just purchased this in a bundle around Christmas time. I haven’t worn it yet though. I did swatch it and remember feeling bummed about it looking patchy. Your swatch definitely looks much nicer. I’ll have to test it out soon for sure.
