ColourPop Love Bite & Double Cherry Glossy Lip Stains Reviews & Swatches

Love Bite

ColourPop Love Bite Glossy Lip Stain ($8.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cooler, pink undertones and a soft sheen. The glossiness that it had from the very initial laydown of product disappeared as the formula dried down a bit. The texture was more watery, thin, and very spreadable initially and then developed into something thinner, clingier, and significantly less watery/emollient after thirty seconds or so.

The product stained somewhat, as it definitely lingered and wore well (six hours), but it wasn’t enough of a stain to really endure through even a light meal. The formula was non-drying and flattering to wear as it did not emphasize my lip lines or lip texture. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, just as marketed.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. – $38.10 Per Ounce

It’s supposed to have the “long-lasting powers of a lip stain” with the “shine of a gloss” paired with “medium to buildable coverage” that is “non-drying.” The initial texture was almost watery, overly spreadable (and the applicator often picked up more product than necessary, so take care during application) but dried down to a more satiny shine that was less glossy and more like a satin lipstick with some translucency.

The initial shine wore off within two hours, so it looked like a true satin finish–this was true of doing nothing or just taking a drink of a glass as it wasn’t transfer-resistant. The stain did not power through a meal and tended to leave a very strong ring around the edges of my lips as it wore away so quickly while eating. Left to its own devices, most shades wore around six hours with a faint stain left behind.

It had medium, buildable coverage but quickly built to more semi-opaque coverage without an official second layer (just going back and forth to get an even layer of product). A couple of shades were truer to medium and others were more semi-opaque from the first layer.

There didn’t seem to be any added fragrance nor taste while worn.

Double Cherry

ColourPop Double Cherry Glossy Lip Stain ($8.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It was glossier initially, but the formula has a moderate dry down where the more watery consistency became less watery, slightly clingier, and had more of a satiny sheen.

I found that the initial glossiness really disappeared within an hour or so, so it had a true satin finish for most of its life. It had medium pigmentation, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage, and the color applied evenly across my lips, though I’d recommend using a lighter hand as the applicator picked up a lot more product than I needed.

It lasted for six hours, and there was some staining power, but it was a weaker stain that couldn’t make it through a meal at all (disappeared entirely except for a ring around the edges of my lips).
