I've meant to write this review for quite some time, but to be honest, I forgot.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Stingraye is one of my all time favorite lip colors. It immediately became a staple in my collection of lipsticks. I wore it all winter, most of the spring and into the summer. I kept saying I was going to review it, and then, I never did.

It's no secret that I love Colourpop. Their products are inexpensive, cruelty free and made in the USA. What more could you ask for? 

The Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Stingraye is a gorgeous mauve-brown. I've yet to see a person that couldn't pull off this shade and it's absolutely gorgeous. Being that it's a collaboration, it's limited edition. I wondered if it had somehow been made permanent, but I received an e-mail from Colourpop stating that it will be discontinued and unavailable after August 18, so I knew I had to share it now!

This is the first Ultra Matte Lip that I bought after Colourpop went through a formula change. The change is SO good and the newer formula is so much better. It's so much less drying but more comfortable, with no cracking, bleeding, smearing. It stays put.

As I'm posting this, I'm trying to decide how many back-ups to buy. Probably just one because the shelf life on liquid lipsticks isn't there best and there are dupes available, granted they are more expensive dupes such as Jeffree Star's Androgyny.

So, verdict? This is a PSA to get this lipstick before it's too late. If you're into the deep mauve tones, you're going to be sad if you miss it.

I've included swatches and a comparison to Lumiere 2 since I thought they'd be similar. I've also included a picture of me wearing Stingraye.

It's $6 on Colourpop's website. Don't miss it! It's gone August 18th!

Thanks for reading!
