Heroines

ColourPop Heroines Sailor Moon Ultra Lip Duo is a new, limited edition lipgloss and liquid lipstick duo. The gloss appeared more golden/beige in the tube, but it was quite transparent so it had more of a shimmer/sheen effect. I wish the liquid lipstick was more forgiving of lip lines/texture and lasted longer.

  • Smooth, gel-like, non-sticky feel
  • Applied evenly and didn’t emphasize lip lines

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.11 oz. – $81.82 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to sheer coverage with “hi-shine” that is “smoothing” without being sticky. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, non-sticky, and spreadable, which made it a very plush and comfortable formula to wear.

Some shades were more smoothing than others, but I noticed that darker-hued shades had a tendency to settle into my lip lines more noticeably. I was surprised–and disappointed–as one of the things I loved most about the original gloss formula was how forgiving and smoothing it was.

The pigmentation was sheer to semi-sheer, as marketed, while the longevity was solid (good for a gloss) at three to four hours. The formula felt hydrating to wear. It had a sweet, red candy-like scent but no discernible taste.

Sailor Star

Sailor Star is a brighter, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish.

  • Semi-sheer, somewhat buildable coverage (as marketed)
  • Thin, spreadable, slightly watery
  • Did not apply evenly, unforgiving of lines/texture
  • Average-wearing (3.5 hours), non-drying

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.1 oz. – $90.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “medium coverage” that dries down to a “diffused matte finish” with “no cracking or flaking.” Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, so they were more pigmented than marketed.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and very fluid (almost watery in a way, that being neither pro nor con!), which made it easy to spread across my lips and get an even application of product. I noticed that the formula was generally forgiving of lip texture/lip lines and didn’t settle into my lip lines while drying down.

Most shades took 30 to 60 minutes before they were more matte, or else one could blot gently to achieve that diffused matte finish faster. Once the formula was mostly dried down, it remained flexible and comfortable to wear while feeling lightweight. I achieved four to five hours of wear and felt that the formula was non-drying over time. It had a subtle, sweet scent but no discernible taste.
