When I look at my collection, I sometimes sigh and think, “Wow, I have too much makeup!” Yes, it’s true, even a makeup junkie has times like these! But, that really doesn’t stop me from growing out my collection. It’s just the true junkie nature. Am I right?! So, when the ColourPop x Amanda Steele collection released, believe you me, I added EVERYTHING to cart, but then the voice of reason told me to only grab Chaps Ultra Matte Lip. Somehow, I listened to that voice of reason, and that’s all I hauled from this collection. That may change in the future, but for now, this beautiful purple liquid lipstick is what I have to share with you today!
I honestly wouldn’t have looked twice at this beautiful purple ONLY because I own a lot of purple lipsticks/liquid lipsticks and makeup items, and I hardly wear them out. But this beauty just kept calling to me, and I decided to make ColourPop Chaps mine. I’m kind of glad I did because once I wore it, I ended up wearing it out. I sure did get a lot of double takes, but sometimes, that’s the fun of wearing interesting shades out in public. Who knows what they were thinking, but I indeed was smitten with this deep, dark purple!
My lips have been really dry, and this swatch is after swatching 9 liquid lipsticks, so whatever dryness you see could be because of that, but I have been wearing this for several hours and have eaten. The wear is iron-clad, and pretty transfer-proof, except for a faint outline of the lips, which did transfer onto my little’s cheek (probably because I did eat), but other than that, FLAWLESS! The formula is also pretty even for a dark shade and it looks different on EVERYONE I’ve seen it on.
As for it looking like ColourPop x Hello Kitty Mimmy Ultra Matte Lip, you don’t have to worry – no dupes here!
L-R: Chaps, Mimmy
What do you think? Do you dare to wear Chaps in public? 😉
