ColourPop Perky is from ColourPop Cosmetics Holiday 2016 Collection. It is also another shade after Calypso that I totally loved. It is one of the soft muted colors which suit any skin tone. And unlike Calypso which has the satiny finish, Perky is an Ultra Matte Lip Color from ColourPop.

Apparently, this shade seems to be out of stock or rather discontinued. So if you get a chance to grab this one, do by all means. That said, there are a bunch of colors both lip colors and eye colors which are being discontinued by ColourPop, so if you have something which you wanted to pick or restock, now is the time!

What I Love –
- It is a soft warm toned pink-brown
- It is browner than it looks in the tube
- It is perfect for any time of the day
- It is one of the soft neutral shades
- It has the ultra-matte finish
- It doesn’t settle in fine lines
What I do not Love –
- It is discontinued
Again, if you do not have pigmented lips (like me), this color can be used as is. Otherwise, using a matching (preferably a tiny bit darker) lip liner can do wonders!
That said, this color stayed on my lips for much longer than Calypso. But since it’s an Ultra Matte, using a lip scrub to buff the lips smooth and applying a generous amount of lip balm prior to applying the lip color seems to help a lot. Plus, the color stays and looks a lot better.
Going for kohl or smokey eye along with this lip color suits the most.
On another note, I am definitely disappointed that such a gorgeous color is being discontinued.
Have you tried this shade yet? What do you think?
