ColourPop Kiss & Tell Ultra Glossy Lip Kit Swatches & Review

Despite not being a huge lipgloss wearer, a mixture of curiosity and collector compulsions led me to buy the Kiss & Tell Ultra Glossy Lip Kit ($24USD), one of the three record kits in ColourPop's Now Playing Holiday 2016 collection. I'd never tried their gloss formula and when all of their liquid lips were 20% off for Black Friday, it seemed like just the right excuse to take them for a whirl! A tenuous excuse, maybe, but an excuse nonetheless 😃

There are five glosses in this set, which come beautifully packaged in a large, sturdy cardboard record shaped box. The lipgloss packaging itself differs from ColourPop's usual silver caps and clear tubes, instead, the caps are black and the tubes are frosted, which looks very sleek. The applicator is a slim, angled doefoot.

Formula Overview:
The texture of these is very cushiony and smooth, it glides on the lips easily and doesn't feel sticky or tacky. You can feel the glitter in some of the metallic shades but it doesn't feel too gritty or uncomfortable. I found them to be hydrating and quite long wearing for lipgloss at four to five hours. Although these particular shades are all very glittery, it didn't migrate all over the place while I wore them, which I was pleased with - stray glitter is never ideal! They had no discernable scent.

Tight Fit

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip - Tight Fit Swatches & Review

Tight Fit is described as a 'light peachy pink in a metallic finish'. It's the only shade not exclusive to this kit and can be purchased as part of the permanent range anytime. To be honest, as soon as I swiped this on, I was kicking myself for not having tried any of the Ultra Glossy Lips sooner - it's just gorgeous! The pink shimmer in the peachy base gives an almost duochrome appearance as the shimmer catches the light. There's some settling into lip lines as you can see in the swatch above, but it's not visible from a normal viewing distance. Tight Fit lasted for three and a half hours on me, with plenty of sparkle remaining after the gloss had disappeared.

Playback

Playback is described as a 'light gold topped with silver glitter in a metallic finish'. It's a light peach with fine pearly silver shimmer and slightly larger golden sparks. I experienced less pulling into lip lines than with Tight Fit and it doesn't have that duochrome vibe, but overall I did feel that they were pretty close to each other and perhaps not necessary to include in the same kit. Not that I didn't like Playback - it's a beautiful shade! It wore for four hours on me, was very hydrating and again, left behind a lot of sparkle.

Furry

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip - Furry Swatches & Review

Furry is described as a 'rich burgundy in a metallic finish'. It has rich colour payoff and lots of fine sparkle that makes it totally mesmerising on the lips. The downside to the opaque, glossy colour, for me, is that it causes Furry to feather and as it's also a stainer, I had faint pink staining around my lip line after a few hours wear where it had bled. It's worth noting that I am quite prone to feathering so if you don't typically experience it you may not have any trouble with Furry. The colour is spectacular enough for me to try it with a lip liner, so I'll have to chuck one in with my next order. I think LBB looks like a good potential match! Feathering and all, Furry wore for five hours on me, after which it was mostly a glittery stain. 
This shade is also available individually, although the website currently notes that there is low inventory.

Flatline

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip - Flatline Swatches & Review

Flatline is described as a 'mid tone gold with multi dimensional glitter in a metallic finish'. It's a sheer gold glitter which appears quite gritty on the lips due to the larger glitter particle size and sheer base colour. As you may be able to tell, I'm not thrilled with it on its own! Used as a layering gloss though, it's stunning - I've put it over Trust Me Lippie Stix (reviewed here) a little further down. Flatline wore for five hours on me, was hydrating during that time and left behind a lot of sparkle.

Swinger

ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip - Swinger Swatches & Review

Swinger is described as a 'cool-toned silver taupe in a metallic finish'. When I first pulled this out of the box, I was thinking 'eeep, what have I done?!' - it was much greyer than I'd expected! But on the lips, Swinger isn't nearly as intimidating. The silver-taupe base mutes my natural lip colour somewhat and the pearl and gold shimmer is very pretty. I'll probably use this primarily for layering! Swinger lasts five hours on me and is hydrating like the rest of the shades.
