ColourPop Summer '17 Heat Collection Lip Swatches | Asian Skin

Yay! Who doesn't love it when ColourPop releases new lippies? They called these the heat collection and there are 8 new lip colors.

There is a trio bundle called Sun Seeker for $15 and this includes one of each type of finish - glossy, satin and matte.
Cabana Boy (Ultra Glossy Lip)
Cabana Boy is a rose gold in a metallic finish and it is beautiful. It has just the right amount of pigmentation and it looks beautiful worn on its own. You can use it as an accent on top of other lip colors too. This one feels really comfortable on the lips and not heavy or tacky at all.

Tidal (Ultra Satin Lip)
Tidal is a warm brown and this was really pigmented. It dried down to quite a matte finish but it's not transfer proof. Super comfortable and not streaky. It would be a great nude for deeper skin tones.

Sizzle (Ultra Matte Lip)
Sizzle is described as a warm berry but it seems like a really bright strawberry red in my opinion. Even so, it's really pigmented and it's a cute bright color for summer.

The rest of these colors are sold individually for $6. I didn't get Extra Toppings because I thought it was a bright coral orange but it seems to lean more red. I'm not sure. I wouldn't have gotten Trouble Maker if I didn't need to but I had to hit free shipping.

Trouble Maker (Ultra Matte Lip)
This is described as a mid-toned brown peach. It's really orange on me and I don't really like it. Plus the formula for this particular color feels really dry and crumbly. You can already see it settling into my lip lines and it just didn't feel comfortable.

Top 8 (Ultra Matte Lip)
Top 8 is a rosey brown and I love this color so much! It's the perfect lip color to throw on for any occasion and it's just so flattering on all skin tones.

Sunshowers (Ultra Matte Lip)
This is a deep plum and the color is gorgeous too. However, it doesn't really stay on the insides of my lips so there is a stain there. It is quite pigmented but if the applicator runs dry, it will apply streaky.

Circles (Ultra Matte Lip)
This is a cool toned burgundy and if you are looking for a true dark red without brown or purple undertones, this is the one. It is slightly patchy so you will need 2 coats. A single coat doesn't feel dry or cracky so a second layer shouldn't hurt.

I love these colors and there is apparently a change in formula but I didn't notice much difference. ColourPop's UML normally are not an issue for me. I mean, I don't find them particularly drying or crumbly. What I did notice is that they do not settle as much into my lip lines so my lips do not look as wrinkly.
