Colourpop Nudes | Midi, Aquarius 2 & Fairy Floss Review & Swatches

Judging from my recent Colourpop purchase, it would seem that I have a type. I bought three lip colors, all in the same family. Here are three Colourpop Lipsticks.

The three shades that I grabbed are Midi, Aquarius 2, and Fairy Floss.

What Colourpop Lipsticks did I purchase?

Midi is an Ultra Matte from the original release. This was one of their first shades they ever brought out, yet I somehow missed it. This color is described as a pale, dusty pink but it’s more of a true nude on me. This is slightly lighter than Aquarius 2, although they are extremely similar. The formula is similar as well, but this is slightly more dry than Aquarius 2.

Aquarius 2 is a collaboration with Kathleen Lights. This is an Ultra Matte as well and described as a mauve-y nude. This dries down and stays put. No cracking or flaking, no streaks and no peeling. It wears well and I really like the color. It dries really quickly and removes easily with the Urban Decay Lip Oil Remover.

Fairy Floss is an Ultra Glossy lip and my first non-metallic gloss that I’ve bought from Colourpop. It’s described as a sheer, pale beige. I think that’s an accurate description. I’m not a huge gloss fan, but this one actually isn’t sticky. It also isn’t long lasting, but that’s kind of how that goes. It is pretty sheer, but I like to wear this one days where I just want a light wash of nude.

So, verdict? These retail for $6 each, so no complaints from me. I hear that they’re too dry for some people pretty often; I don’t have this issue. They have been reformulated a couple of times since the initial launch and are much, much better.

Thanks for reading!
