A while back, I made a giant Colourpop order, and part of the reason was for the free lipsticks you would get for spending a certain amount! This was one of the lipsticks that I was excited to get for free.
Color: Viper is described on the Colourpop website as a “true dusty rose”, which is mostly accurate! I’d add that there’s a definite purple appearance to it when it dries down completely, whereas I would consider rose to be a more pink shade. It’s also darker than how it looks in the tube, which is a bit deceiving, so be aware!
Finish: True to its name, Viper is definitely a matte lip. It’s got the very traditional, completely flat matte appearance which ends up clinging to every single crevice in my lips.
Packaging: The packaging of this is very basic; just a plain tube, silver chrome accents, and shiny writing for the label. I’ve had this lipstick for long enough that the writing has actually completely faded off – you can still see where it was, but there’s no actual indication from a quick glance anymore.
The stopper in this particular shade seems to be defective. There’s a ton of excess product that appears to almost be leaking out despite the fact that I always keep my Coloupop lips upright. I’m assuming that it’s just from me having to wipe the extra product from the doefoot off and it staying at the top of the tube. My wand is also really messy looking and overall I’m not super pleased with it.
